    FutureMrsJohnson_:  We don’t have children yet but i’ve had this conversation with my mum too! I know lots of people have theories on this however going on what my mum experienced, I don’t think gender matters!

    I was her first (girl) and she had a fair bit of morning sickness. Her second was my brother, she showed a lot and her belly got really big with him however he and I weighed around the same at birth (and she had zero morning sickness with him). Her third was my youngest brother, she had TERRIBLE morning sickness to the point where she couldn’t get out of bed for weeks (it cleared up later on) and she had the tiniest neat little belly even in the last weeks before he was born but again, he weighed essentially the same as me and our brother. She said she also carried me and my youngest brother quite high, and my middle brother sat lower.

    Its interesting to hear all the different theories! But personally I’m prepared to expect anything, whether its a boy or a girl!

    FutureMrsJohnson_:  I’m pregnant for a second time right now and its pretty much the same as my first. I had a daughter the first time and this one is a boy. Minimal sickness, carrying high, feeling good overall. So far I haven’t gained as much weight this time around but since I’m a SAHM and eat 3 meals a day with my toddler I eat healthy bc I want her to eat healthy. There are plenty of after work donut runs on my husbands part though which we eat after bedtime. 😉

    First pregnancy (a boy) and it was wonderful, barely had a complaint.  Second pregnancy was a girl and it sucked LOL- morning sickness, back pain, etc.  Of course some of the issues with the 2nd were me chasing after my son!

    I don’t think pregnancy symptoms relate at all to sex of the baby. I know lots of people with same-sex children and they had many different symptoms with all pregnancies.

    Not to mention, second(and subsequent) pregnancies you tend to get bigger earlier because of muscle memory. That’s been true for me this time.

    With my pregnancy with my daughter, I had a pretty easy go of it with morning sickness, didn’t gain too much weight, my skin was bad, etc.

    This pregnancy (I don’t know what I am having) my morning sickness has been awful and I still have it at 21 weeks. I was showing SUPER early, my skin has been pretty clear.

    It’ll be interesting to see what I have but I am not going to assume boy because of my different symptoms. Every pregnancy is unique, even in the same woman! It’s bizarre!

    I had a boy first.  I was nauseated all the time and had a very difficult pregnancy, with severe swelling.  I was induced at 37 weeks.  With my daughter, I was never nauseaous and had an easy pregnancy and she was born at 39 weeks.
