  • one of my best friends can tell what she is having by if she is sick or not. she got more sick with her girl and she also had heart burn with her two boys and not the girl. but me i stayed sick with my little boy. i think each person has a different way of reacting to which sex it is so it could be different for you.

  • I don't know if I believe any of the old wives tales but I hope you get your boy! GL and Congrats! So far the needle and thread thing has been right for everyone I know. Coincidence...maybe, maybe not. =)

  • Congrats on your pregnancy. I also have 3 girls and I am pregnant with my 4th which is a boy. I'm not really sure there is anything different that really stands out to me. You can not go by the heartbeat thing.. my little boy is the same as all my girls were. In fact I went by that up until I found out the gender and assumed I was having another girl because it was always above 140. The only difference I have noticed and I am not sure if it has to do with it being a boy but I grew hair in more places then normal. Like I have some on my face and my belly. I didn't have that with my girls. But good luck to you and I hope you get your little boy !! (Oh yeah and the ring on a necklace trick worked for me too so maybe you could try that)
