That’s horrible!  I’ve never been pregnant but all my friends who were having boys always had morning sickness…some for 7 months!  So they always looked sick, paler, and just plain worn out.  I thought I could tell by the way the women were carrying the babies…but 2 women at work (carrying differently) both had boys….I actually have a good record at guessing the sex for some weirdo reason!

EVERYONE told my sister she was having a boy (they were right) and she did look great while she was pregnant. But she did say, I guess I would be really upset if everyone said it was a girl since that would mean they think I look like crap!

I am always careful about guessing people will have a girl, though, because I wouldn’t want them to think I’m saying they don’t look good 🙂

Most people thought we were having a girl but it was more because they were hoping it was a girl.  I am indeed having a girl.  I tend to guess what I think people are having based on their personalities and what I can picture them having and I’m usually right.  Everyone wanted my BIL and SIL to have a girl (pretty much again because everyone wanted a girl) and I said that I thought it was a boy.  And now I have a nephew.  

Now I’ll be more careful when I guess girl though.  I know the myths but it never occurred to me that it might be insulting sometimes (probably because I don’t go by the myths).

With DS people always guessed boy, with Dirty Delete people always said girl. I don’t think I look any worse for wear this time! Haha

Everyone thought I was having a boy. MY mom, my Mother-In-Law, my friends, EVERYONE! Even I was convinced I was having a boy… my mom even knit a blue sweater and matching blue hat.


Lo and behold, we are having a girl. I was totally shocked, and so was everyone else!

I guess pregnancies full stop!  I freaked out my Darling Husband by telling him his cousin was soooo pregnant! She’d been TTC for 5 years and had PCOS.  He said no way.  2 months later she announced that she was 3 months gone.  I went to visit my best friend and when I hugged her I said to her “Ohhh your boobs are bigger – your pregnant again!”  She only did the test one week before.I wonder if I guess about my pregnancy when it finally happens!

I am quite good at guessing sex – but I think I luck out there.  I guessed my niece wasa girl, and the sex of the two pregnancies I mentioned.

@Cariad:  Haha, you are the “pregnancy whisperer”!! 🙂


I think people guess what they want you to have.

I had everyone guessing it was a girl with my citrus/fruit cravings. I had a feeling deep down that it was a boy because my face is still pretty clear. I anticipated my face going crazy with hormones and it didn’t. I still had pretty bad morning sickness in the first trimester, nothing requiring meds, but enough to make for a bad day. I’m having a boy.
