How good do you think pregnancy intuition is?

I KNEW with my daughter that I was having a girl, and this time I have the same feeling but that it is a boy. I dont know how, but I just know. I will feel really bad if its a girl, I know that sounds horrible but my husband wants a boy so bad. He told me that he wont care, but for some reason I just feel like I have to give him a son. I wont find out for another month, but do you think pregnancy intuition is usually right?

  • idk, maybe. I truly felt like I was carrying a boy, but that may have been because I desperately wanted a Lucky me, a boy is what I got.

  • I've heard a statistic that like 70% of the time, women are right about the sex of their baby. I was. I had a feeling I was having a boy, and every time I thought I was having a girl it just felt wrong. My mind almost wouldn't even let me think about having a girl for some reason. Sure enough, I'm having a boy!

  • I think it is pretty right when it comes to the sex of a baby. I had a feeling all three times. and was right even though with my first they told me I was having a girl but I didn't feel like I was having a girl. I really should have went with my feelings cause I had a boy!!

  • i knew with my first two, and this one, i'm not so sure. My first two were boys. I'm kind of confussed. when i think one thing, it feels wrong, so i wonder about the other. and still doesn't feel right. i find out next month, but still.

    but i read the 70% thing too.

  • I didn't know but getting into the beginning of my second trimester, I started having multiple dreams in one night! And most of them implied that I was having a baby boy, and sure enough we went for our first ultrasound and it was a boy! =) I don't know what the statistics are, it's fifty fifity no matter what

  • My u/s lady told me she didn't see boy equipment but didn't see anything that would lead her to believe that there is a girl in there either.. so.. she said "we assume girl" well thats not exactly something you want to be told when you have a nursery to decorate and clothes to buy etc.. ( we assume") anyway.. I told my doc that I felt like it was boy... and she said.. you would be suprised at how often the mom is right.. try the old wives tale where you hang a needle and thread over your wrist... I have NEVER known it to be wrong and its pretty fun, you will see the sex of all of your pregnancies.. (example: I have a daughter.. I see circles first, it stops.. and then swings back and forth which means boy) haev fun.. and don't worry :) YOu will love either one :)

  • I'm only 7 months pregnant and this is my first pregnancy, but from the moment I found out I was pregnant, I have felt that this was a boy. I decided to wait until the baby is born to find out what I'm having so it will be a while, but I will be very surprised if I have a little girl in me. Every single person around me wants to know what I'm having, my SO and I decided to wait and now he is too excited and wants to find out so I'm enjoying this even more =) We have names picked out in any situation though.
