  • It didn't really make a difference for me. I got progressively sicker with each one (until this pregnancy) and I had boy, boy, girl, boy, ? due 7/15

  • i've always heard you're more sick with girls. however, it didn't ring true for me as i have 3 girls and was about as sick with each one.

  • If that is true, then I NEVER want to get pregnant with a son because when I was pregnant with dd I wanted to throw myself out of a moving vehicle for the first five months. I puked 2-10 times a day and some days all I could choke down was water so i could try adn stay hydrated. This time it wasnt' so bad... so I don't think there is any truth to that. I've heard it the other way around also...girl=bad boy=not so bad

  • nope. I had worse morning sickness BY FAR with this baby and it's a girl. With my son I hardly had any.

  • I have 2 sons. My first gave me NO morning sickness and my second gave me mild/moderate morning sickness.

  • I have five children and the only one that gave me any morning sickness was my DD. I didn't get sick at all with my boys.
