  • I had terrible morning sickness and had a girl, my sister was really sick as well and had a boy. IMO I don't think that sickness can help determine gender.

  • I am actually the opposite. I was so so sick with all of my boys, and felt really good for the most part with my girl. But I have heard that from a lot of ladies... so.. maybe? Heehee, sorry, not much help.

  • no there is no way to tell the gender of your baby by the lack of or excessive morning sickness. with both of my pregnancies i had absolutely no morning sickness, my first one was a boy and this one is a girl. sorry this doesnt help you out, but its fact you can not tell the gender of your baby by the amount of morning sickness.

  • When my mom was preg with me she was so sick she lost 60 pounds. But when she had my brother she was so NOT sick she didnt even know she was preg tell like 5 months. But when I had my daughter I didnt get sick even ones. So yeah IMO it has nothing to do with the sex. Just the pregnancy.
