Many people in my family beleive that if you have minimal or no morning sickness, you are having a boy and if you are very sick you are having a girl.
I wondered how true this myth is for ladies of the hive.

My aunt was only sick twice between her two pregnancies with very little nausia and they were both boys. My mom was sick all day every day all 9 months for all 3 pregnancies and had 3 girls. I was sick twice and had a boy. There are those, however, who say they were very sick with their boys and had no morning sickness with their girls.

@TheMrs2013: This is exactly the situation in every pregnancy in my family. Everyone was very sick with girls and had fantastic pregnancies with boys. I think what everyone says at this point about pregnancy is kind of crap (lots of opinions), but this one just seems to really ring true with so many people.

My SIL has been sick for almost her whole pregnancy and she is having a boy. I know a girl who is pregnant and she has been having morning sickness and she is having a boy. My cousin had a girl, and I don’t remember her complaining about being sick very much. Who knows!

First Dirty Delete Not sick at all. 2nd Dirty Delete BEYOND SICK. But with my 2nd everyone was saying boy because I had morning sickness how funny the wifes tales change depending on the person telling it…

I don’t know what I’m having yet but I’ve had very little sickness (I actually just got sick for the first time last night, the rest of the time I’ve had very little to no nausea). My SIL was super sick and had a boy.

Funny, I’d heard it the other way around, something about the hormones being at war. Sounds silly, I know, but I liked that explanation when I was throwing up every morning baking our boy.

I’ve had 3 babies and they were ALL different as far as symptoms. My first was a girl and I had violent morning sickness that I could not calm with breathing, crackers, or anything. And it didn’t just happen in the mornings. It was pretty bad and lasted until I was almost 7 months or so along. The smell of eggs or mint toothpaste meant instant vomit.
My second was a boy and I had really typical morning sickness. Brushing my teeth would usually trigger it, and it wouldn’t come back during the day.
The third was a boy too and I had absolutely no morning sickness. I would feel kinda icky, and then it would just wear off. I wish I HAD gotten sick instead of the hernia he gave me though!

There’s not that many votes but so far the majority is in line with my families version of the myth. Anyone else?

I had no morning sickness and had a boy. But then again my mom had me and my brother and had no morning sickness with either one of us

I’ve had NO morning sickness and am having a boy. It rings true for me!
My mother had only 2 weeks of morning sickness with each girl (3), but no MS with twin boys.

I only ever threw up once during my 1st tri, but did feel nauseous a lot and I am having a girl. So its not really true in my case
