    Boy or girl

    Sorry for posting it here but the 2nd trimester community is so quiet, so thought of posting here.
    This is my second pregnancy and I am so hoping for a boy as I have a girl already. With my first, I had lots of nausea and vomiting in the fits trimester, this time I didnt have any in the first 3 months but these days I feel nauseous especially to certain smells. I thought that these symptoms go away by 2nd trimester but for me I am expereincing it now...Does this mean it might be a girl this time? I have my 16th week appt next week. And I cant find out for another 4 weeks. Also my face looks all puffed up in the morning as soon as I get up and I have horrible nasal congestion, headaches and constipation. I dont know what to do. I will bring these up at my drs appt but thought of asking you all here...

    Unfortunately, symptoms can't tell you if you're having a boy or girl.
