    I thought (almost from the beginning) that our LO was a girl. And at our 20 week u/s, my intuition was confirmed (she was good about giving us a nice toilet shot).

    Yep.  I was convinced from day 1 that it was a boy…couldn’t even fathom that it was a girl.  Same for Darling Husband.  We were right!  At our anatomy scan, the first thing we saw was the little legs and a little something in between : )

    I was convinced it was a boy.

    However, Darling Husband was convinced it was a girl, and the night before our anatomy scan he even had a dream it was a girl!

    Sure enough, GIRL! I was shocked!!!

    I was totally convinced from the start that I was having a girl. They told me it was a boy at the anatomy scan, though. I’m not 100% convinced they’re right, since I was so sure. I guess we’ll see in a few months

    I wanted a boy.  And from very early on, I kept saying “I want a boy, but it’s a girl.”  I kept on wanting a boy, but I had dream after dream that there was a girl in there.  So much so that right before my gender scan, Darling Husband and I had decided on a girl name, and didn’t even bother deciding on a boy name.

    Sure enough, the scan confirmed it was a girl.  I can’t imagine any other baby now, and she seems perfect for us!

    I had no clue with Addie; I didn’t have feelings either way.  I kinda feel like Numero Dos here might be a boy, but that’s just because this pregnancy has been different from my first.  We won’t find out for another couple months, so I don’t know whether I can trust my intuition or not!

    I don’t know the gender of our baby yet, but all I can think about is pink bedding, clothes, etc. Most of the time I won’t even bother looking at boy clothes or bedding, but I’ll force myself just in case. I’ve also been having dreams of a baby girl, but I don’t know if it’s b/c I want one SO BAD or if it’s intuition.

    I was convinced our Dirty Delete was a boy. We were team green so it was quite a shock when she was born. We had to check at least twice to convince ourselves that the nurse was right when she said “he” was a girl.

    I’m feeling girl, but lord only knows if it’s right or not. lol Darling Husband has a girl from a previous relationship so that’s what I’m holding on to that he’s a girl maker. 🙂 My mom has 7 grandsons and 1 granddaughter…she wants a girl so bad she can taste it! Like @JewishBride, I find myself looking at only girl stuff. Just my luck it’s a boy. lol

    @winniewolf:  Ditto – I have been convinced since day one that this LO is a boy – I just can’t even conceive of it being a girl (bad pun, I know).    We’re team green so we have to wait another 22 weeks or so before we can find out, but I will be the most shocked person on the planet if it’s a girl.

    Interestingly, my dad is convinced it’s a girl.  The night after I told him, he had a dream that it was a girl and has referred to it as a ‘she’ ever since.  So it will be interesting to see who has the better intuition – Mom or Grandpa!  

    As a side note – we have the A/S in two weeks and I am paranoid that we’re going to see something I don’t want to see!!!  I will be crushed if we find out the gender accidentally, I might just look away the whole time until they say it’s safe to look.

    I KNEW it was going to be a girl. I was looking at girl names, girl clothes, girl nursery inspiration, everything. I don’t know what I would have done if it was a boy because the thought never even crossed my mind that there was a possibility we were not having a girl.

    Well, I was right! We are definitely having a girl.

    I also just knew she was a girl, and I was right.  I would have been SHOCKED if I was wrong because my gut feeling was so strong!

    @Ree723: I have a friend that was team green for both her pregnancies. She said the ultrasound tech told her when she could look and she started the ultrasound out not looking.

    I was completely shocked beacuse I was was convinced, I KNEW I was right. I thought for sure, would have bet my life on it, it was a girl. I had girl names picked out, the bedding, nursery colors etc..

    It’s a boy! I’m really excited now, but it was kinda hard at first honestly. I was a little disappointed. But I’m so happy I’m having a boy and not a girl now. I’m really glad I found out though so that I had time to adjust and get used to the idea of a boy.
