    My intuition was ALL wrong. I swore up and down I was having a girl.. bought all girl stuff.. (on sale or used) but still.. ended up with a tub of girl stuff and at 16 weeks, I saw a penis! LOL.

    With DS I KNEW he was a boy. I just had a feeling. With this one, I really wanted a girl so bad, but thought it was a boy. I was in complete shock when the US tech wrote girl on the screen. I think I just had prepared myself for another boy so I wouldnt be let down if it were a boy.

    Well with my son i knew he was a boy and with this one i've felt it was a girl and ultrasound said girl so i've been right with both so far, although i really wanted another boy this time.

    well....we are having a girl!! I am so happy that everything went well and baby girl is growing as she should, now it seems so much more real to me. I have always wanted a sister, so it is nice that my little girl will get to experiance that!

    I had a strong feeling with my first that it was a girl, and we had a beautiful girl, Chloe But this time I don't have that gut feeling one way or the other. I wish I did! We go in on Jan. 25 to find out...just a couple more weeks, and the days are going by SO slowly!
    mamas_love1234 responded:
    My first pregnancy I was so unsure of what my "motherly instincts" were telling me the babys sex could be, but I knew I wanted a girl.. I went in on ultrasound day and ta-da! She was a girl... My second pregnancy.. I first thought that there was maybe a small chance for a girl and I sort of wanted another girl at first, the feeling wasn't just too strong that my second was a ggirl but I was hoping because I sort of wanted another girl, just a few days before ultrasound day I had a sudden change of heart and thought to myself "how awesome it would be to have a boy this time, it would be a whole new expierience" so then I had decided I wanted a boy this time and I went in on ultrasound day and crossed my fingers and yessss... I got my boy lol... this current pregnancy,. I knew from the begining I wanted a girl..I knew that it just HAD to be a girl this time.. I was (and am) so wore out from my little man who is always soooo full of energy and always sooo brave and daring.. I just had to get a girl this time.. I went in on ultrasound day and it was too early to tell by just a few weeks. The tech told me she would say 60% chance it is a girl but she couldn't say for sure.. I go back at almost 21 weeks and get my ultrasound and the happy little words"it's a girl!"... SooOOO my point in all this ramble is.. idk if I wanted my children to be the sexes that I wanted them because of an instinct or I just happen to be able to make my own wishes come true and wish my children into the sex I want them to be before they are born lol.. highly unlikely.. but idk... lol... anyone else have such luck? or even the opposite?
    jlbwondering35 responded:
    I knew with my first that it was a boy. And this time around I kept referring to the baby as "she." We got the amnio results last week and sure enough...we're having a girl!!!! I'm sooooooooooooooooo excited!

    mam546 responded:
    I thought it might be a girl but according to the u/s it looks like a boy. I had a follow up u/s but LO was not gonna show anything!! He had his knees bent and legs tight together with heels at his butt. There was no going around any which way to look. LOL lets hope the tech was right the first time.
    BabyDems replied to Jackie03291's response:
    yes, we are thinking about Gracyne....pronounced grayson....not 100% but about 92% sure that is the name!
