Did you always have a feeling of the sex of your baby before you found out?

I'm 39 weeks pregnant and still don't know the sex of my baby #2...I was told at my first u/s that they were "pretty" sure it was a boy but I had a total of 3 u/s and couldn't tell a thing...

I just keep telling myself its a girl. Idk why but I just CAN NOT see myself having a boy! Is this motherly instinct or just denial? :( I feel bad for thinking it but I just want a girl so bad!

  • I knew I was having a boy from the time I found out I was pregnant. The US confirmed it, but I already knew. I would accidentally always refer to the baby as "him" before I ever officially found out. My mom said she knew with all 3 of her pregnancies.

  • My current pregnancy has been so different and honestly horrible. I was extremely sick for the first 14 weeks. My other pregnancies were great and they were boys, so I assumed this one was a girl and sure enough, she is!

  • I knew I was having three girls... I have three BOYS!

    I wanted a girl so bad, that I convinced myself they were girls.

    If it is a boy, you will get use to it and be happy to have him.

  • I don't know how, but we both knew right away that we were having a boy.

  • I knew at the end with #2. We didn't find out until delivery.

  • Ha! my intuition sucks. I think my head got in the way of my heart, because I was hopelessly wishing for a boy with both my girls.

  • Yes. Everyone said I was having a boy. But, both me and my son dreamed of a baby girl and my aunt told me to trust my dreams. Yep! A girl!
