Do you really look/feel different if your having a girl or a boy?

Hi im 15 weeks pregnant with DC2. DS is now 3.5years old. So far my pregnancy doesnt feel any different to the first one so think I may be having another boy. Is it true that you feel different with another sex or that it is carried in a different place when you get bigger?

I have DD1 and am 27 weeks with DD2, both pregnancies have been exactly the same apart from i felt sick/was sick a bit more with DD1. Started feeling rough now ive hit 3rd trimester like last time. Im bigger at this stage than i was with DD1 but that could be to do with muscles! As i don't have a son im not sure but all i can say is both mine have been the same so far!

I'm on my third pregnancy, two boys already: all three pregnancies have felt more or less the same, alebit slightly worse symptoms each time, and my bump is the same shape (all up front like a big ball) so I would bet my house on this being another boy!

My friend had unusually high bumps with both. Bit of a strange looking bump! Identical symptoms and had one of each.
I've got a DS and one due Jan 6th but don't know the sex. My PG have been the same and I look the same. I have a feeling it's another boy but not because of shape etc. Just a feeling smile.

Not true in my case.

I'm on my fourth pregnancy, 1 girl and 2 boys alredy and apart from the fact that my bump got bigger with each pregnancy, I carried them all the same way and this one seems to be no different.

Have carried all mine in the same place (all out front) one of each and another ds on the way.
Only problem is the bumps get bigger grin

I have one DD and it was the easiest pregnancy ever. Never sick, never even felt sick, bags of energy. I lost the next bean at 13 weeks - felt shocking those 13 weeks compared to DD. Am now pg again and feel shocking - am convinced it's another DS. I once read that boy babies exhaust their mamas more than girl babies, due to the development of genitalia and the different way the waste is disposed of in utero. Could be bollocks, and can't remember where I read it. I guess it stuck in my head though, coz forever more I've equated nausea and exhaustion with carrying a boy. Conclusion: everyone's different! Vive la difference!

I have 2 boys, 1 girl
with the boys I was fine apart from the odd complaint but withh dd I had nausea morning noon & night especially in the first trimester

I was more tired with DS and felt more nauseous with DD...but as for the bump and the way i carried i was the same with both!

I know of plenty of ppl who've had identical pregnancies and had one of each, and of others who had totally different pregnancies and had 2 the same!

With me and my friends, we've all been leaner generally (bump aside) when we've been carrying boys. Girls babies have made us mamas all a bit bloated and pudgy with fluid more than anything else.
