Did you have different symptoms while carrying a girl than a boy?

We have 2 boys and I really hope this one is a girl because I am having really different symptoms. Please describe the symptoms between your girl and boy pregnancies. Thanks ladies!

  • I can't answer for sure yet. But my son I would easily cry, I craved apples and milk. and now I am craving chicken and sweets and am very easy to irritate. My sister who has three girls and one boy thinks I'm having a girl because of of my being mad easily. haha. My poor DH! but I am too early to tell yet so I guess we will see.

  • well I've only had girls but every pregnancy is different. The way this pregnancy I couldve sworn I was having a boy, but sure enough its a girl!!! It all depends on the pregnancy...not the gender!

  • I had different symptoms with all three pregnancies and I have three boys. I don't think it is a good predictor of gender.

  • My pregnancies were totally the opposite w/ my son and now pregnant w/ my girl. W/ my son all I had was swelling. W/ my baby girl, I had nausea, extremely tired, back aches, leg pain, pretty much you name it. I know that they say you can't base it on that, but it was for me. My friend had 3 pregnancies, all boys, and each one was different.

  • I had no symptoms when I was pg with my dd. I was a little more tired but that's it. I had mild m/s with my ds. First 3 months and then again the last month. I carried really high with my dd and low with my ds.

  • They say it doesnt have anything to do with the gender but with both of mine I have very diff symptoms. Actually my very first pregnancy was a girl and when I got preggo with Aerianha I had the exact same symptoms. Craved the same things. So I duno....maybe??? Tony I was more nauseaus and wanted all the good stuff....cheese, fruit, veggies. Aerianha I wanted all the junk. LOL. Same with my other girl. But when my SIL was preggo with her most recent she had all new symptoms and he came out being a boy again. I wouldnt get your hopes up until you actually know for sure. She was really bummed thinking she was having a girl. Good luck mama!
