    Is this a myth or ture?
    I heard that when your pregnant you can always tell if your having a boy or girl , because the boys don't like girls and boys don't like the girls. So my bestfriend's son always come to me but now he won't. Everyone says I'm having a girl.

    I have heard this too but can't say if it's true or not. I have only been around my 22 month old son and he wouldn't count lol since I'm his mommy he always comes to me.

    I heard the opposite. I heard that if a boy is attached to you, you will have a girl. My sister says I'm having a girl because my nephew is always over me, but then again he was that way before pregnancy.

    Lysana replied to candy352's response:
    All I've heard is that baby girls don't want anything to do with you if you're having a girl - if a baby girl cries when you hold her, you must be having a girl.

    I haven't had the chance to test this, because DD#1 was no longer a baby when I was pg with DD#2, and both DS and DD#2 are all over me these days. So if this is a girl (which ultrasound says probably not), then it doesn't hold for us. And DS isn't a baby anymore, so I can't test it if it's a boy. LOL!

    so attached to me and now that I'm pregnant, he does not even want to hug me, and I;m having a boy so I agree with this one...(But my nephew does;nt want me to hug him or anything but he calls me and asks me all the time "when is my cousin coming?", he is so ready to boss his little cousin around..LOL

    my son is super glued to my butt......its annoying sometimes

    i know its a girl, cuz he said that he wants a sister...DESPERATELY
    leftcoastgirl responded:
    It's a myth in the sense that there's no scientific evidence behind it. But that doesn't mean you aren't having a girl. The great thing about predicting the gender of a baby is that you're always going to be right 50 percent of the time!

    My 1 year old neice never had a whole lot to do with me until I got pregnant and then she absolutely loved me. My sister would say "you must be having a boy". I found out that I am having a boy!

    I sure hope this is true!! I have 3 boys and with my last boy, my other two were rotten to me the whole time!! And they are usually Mamma's boys!! Now with this one (I'm 13 wks) they won't leave me alone!!! I can't even pee alone!! ha ha
