did you know the sex of your baby before your ultrasounds?

like as in you just knew it was a boy or girl, not from some sort of test. i knew with my first, to the point where i bought dresses before my ultrasound that it was a girl. with my second i knew it was a boy and did the same thing (bought boy specific items before the ultrasound). just curious who else knew.

  • I knew right away that I was having a girl. Before I even took a test to confirm my pregnancy...I just knew I was pregnant and I was having a girl. I don't know how I knew, I just did. I bought tons of girl stuff as early as 2 months into the pregnancy. Then at 21 weeks I had an ultrasound to confirm I was indeed having a girl.

  • i don't know, i just knew the instant i found out i was preg w/each of my pregnancies what it was. ( i was pregnant twice before i had my daughter, had 2 m/c. not sure about the first b/c i passed it w/o assistance, w/the 2nd i had a D&C and read the results accidentally and found out that i was right and it had been a boy) it was like this overwhelming feeling that i just knew. hubby believed me but no one else did up until they were born and were what i'd said they'd be from the get go.

  • as soon as i found out i was pregnant i had a feeling it was a girl. and then at the 20 week it was confirmed that she indeed was a girl.

    i dont know how i knew.. it was just a feeling i guess.

  • I didn't know until they were born because they had not yet invented ultrasound test when I had my kids. But I suspected my third would be a boy. I even bought a little blue outfit when I was six months along. ;-) He WAS a boy.

  • Yup I knew. Even before I was pregnant I used to tell people that my next one would be a boy. I'm now 31 weeks pregnant with a boy.

  • I was 3 weeks when I found out that I was pregnant and for some reason I knew from the beginning that it was a girl. I always wanted a girl so bad. I started having really bad morning sickness around 2 months and they are saying if you are so sick that it's a girl.

  • Not one single ultrasound in each of my 3 pregnancies could determine the gender of my children.
    With my first pregnancy I had a vivid dream of holding a baby girl and that feeling stayed with me throughout the pregnancy so I just 'knew' I was having a girl, and I did.
    I didn't have any strong feelings about the second and third pregnancies because they were all different from each other so I thought one of them were possibly a boy.
    I gave birth to 3 daughters. ♥
