Hi, i was wondering and wanted to know if there was a difference between carrying a boy and carrying a girl.

Did you feel worse/have more syptoms carrying a girl than a boy or a boy than a girl?

Wanted to see what the outcome is......

No difference. The only difference I felt was when carrying the DTs (girl/boy) and I was rough! Really rough!

I felt more nauseous and exhausted when carrying dd (first preg) but once I recovered I felt WONDERFUL!!!

When carrying ds (2nd preg) I had no symptoms for several weeks then the nausea hit and I couldnt even look at food. Also that then led on to feeling knackered and irritable and being quite pale etc.

Def first preg was the best by far!

DD1 - no nausea
DD2 - terrible nausea but no vomiting
DS1 - some nausea
DS2 - some nausea and exhausted all the time (but then I was 41 by then)

HTH. (If you are trying to guess what you're having on the basis of how crap you feel I don't think it will work )

I only have 1 ds so can't really answer, but i wanted to know other peoples opinions as i am nearly 7 weeks now and i have been feeling so so ill its unbearable, i just pray i feel better soon as i can't go on like this. what syptos did you have marslady and were you that bad you could not even get out of bed (this is how i have been)

i can't really tell,with ds i was so happy i had bags full of energy but it could have been the adrenaline, with dd i was extremely tired for the first 3 months but it could be because i already had ds and he was 2,sorry not much help

Well I've got both a dd then a ds, have to say I don't think there was much difference. I was more achey with ds (maybe because it was pg no 3), sickness was roughly the same, tiredness about the same, my pgs seem to be pretty symptomless though. Although ds was more active.

Pg again and I think it may be a girl as it seems quite calm - it may be just a calm little boy though! (Here's hoping - i'm not sure there's such a thing!)

Hated being pregant with both, no nausea with either! That doesn't help at all, does it?

lou33 Sun 29-May-05 12:33:12

was sick with all of them, but def worse with the girls

angelcakeumm Sun 29-May-05 12:34:26

WWW any input is good

No i am not really trying to guess the sex just trying to work out why i feel so so crap.

To be honest i would love to have another boy but if its a girl i am more than happy

dd - nausea all day
ds - no nausea at all

bigdonna Sun 29-May-05 12:50:25

with my ds i had a permanent hangover(felt like it anyway).nausea,vomiting from day 1,until gave dd i did not have nausea,vomiting.and permanent hangover until 12 weeks it lasted until gave birth.

Girl definatley worse. Sick, sick sick, couldnt move for 14 weeks without puking, and the boy was just nauseous

fastasleep Sun 29-May-05 13:53:20

DS I was constantly sick and felt really ill and tired the whole time, I'm pregnant and hopefully find out on Friday whether it's a boy/girl... I was terribly sick at first but it wore off really nicely this time, I feel really tired and dizzy a lot but no sickness yay! Probably just another boy though!

SenoraPostrophe Sun 29-May-05 13:55:29

I felt the same for both. I was slightly more uncomfortable with ds, but I think that was to do with the fact that he had more space to kick and with general stress levels. No morning sickness at all with either.

elibelly Sun 29-May-05 13:57:36

I have one of each and both my pregnancies were the same, I had horrid 24 hours a day ms with both till about 6 months - hated being pg glad I never have to do it again.

hunkermunker Sun 29-May-05 13:58:27

Hi ACU - sorry you're feeling so rotten

I'm at the same stage as you and have been feeling far sicker and more tired than with DS - people have said to me that it's a girl then, but I have no idea (or preference!) - won't be finding out at the scan either Will have to wait until January to discover whether there's any truth in the old wives' tales for me

With DS, I went off sweet things, totally. Even the word biscuit made me feel very queasy. This time, no such "problem"!

Have a ds aged 4 and his pregnancy was a dream, no nausea, sickness, etc. Currently pg with a dd, felt sick from 8 wks to 23 wks, then extreme tiredness, then heartburn, then restless legs and generally feel crap most of the time. You could say I have had 2 very different pregnancies!!

Magscat Wed 01-Jun-05 20:12:47

Much worse with ds but he was first so maybe my body was just more used to it/reacted less 2nd time around.

aloha Wed 01-Jun-05 20:13:02

no difference

Miranda5 Wed 01-Jun-05 20:47:00

I have had three boys and one girl ( ds,dd,ds,ds)
I knew that the last two were boys well before they were born simply because I was so much sicker with the girl. Old wives tale maybe but true for me!

pepsi Wed 01-Jun-05 21:01:22

Was sick in beginning with both. Physically sick more with ds but felt sick all the time at the beginning of pg and was really tired, perhaps because I had a 2 yr old to look after. With ds I felt sick again at end of pregnancy.

pepsi Wed 01-Jun-05 21:01:54

sorry meant that I felt sick all the time with carrying ds at beginning.

Girl, was fine right the way thru re sickness, although had horrible trapped nerve thingy in hip/leg from 5 mths onwards!

Bozza Wed 01-Jun-05 21:18:22

1 of each and both pregnancies nausea and one day of sickness at about 11/12 weeks. Absolute exhaustion in first trimester (compounded in second pg by having toddler). Then rest not much different. Piles came on earlier in first than second bizarrely. WAs bigger with first (boy) than second and had bigger baby (9 10 as opposed to 8 12).
