  • That doesn't determine gender at all. Just wait until you can do the gender ultrasound around 20 wks.

  • Every pregnancy is different. The old wives tales are nothing but old wives tales. You will get an idea when you get your mid pregnancy scan.

  • The only way to know 100% is when the baby comes out. Having different pregnancy symptoms is in no way an indication that you might be having the opposite sex from you last pregnancy. I have 2 boys and they were pretty different. My first I had morning sickness for a few weeks, none for my second. Smells made me sick with my first, they didn't with my second. No cravings with my first, tons of cravings with my second. An ultrasound will give you an indication.

  • Uh, let's see... If you have a boy, you will notice a little penis after he is born.
    On the other hand, if you have a girl, you will NOT see a penis, but rather a vagina.

  • I have 2 sons, the first pregnancy I was very sick, the 2nd one, I wasn't.

    Of course the Ultra Sound told me my 2nd son was a girl! SURPRISE!!

  • If you don't know, how would I know?
    I would say way until you are at forty weeks and you will probably get a clue.

  • Some time you just have to wait tell the baby comes out.

  • I don't think throwing up means your having a boy. But I have heard if you have heartburn a lot while pregnant that means your child has lots of hair. When I was pregnant I got this pee test from mejer and it said I was having a girl and it was right. We could never tell with the ultra sound so wasn't sure till she was born.

  • The old wives' tale generally says that if you're really sick, it's a girl.

    You're going to have to wait.
