  • It's an old wives tale. I was much sicker with the boys than with my daughter.

  • I was extremely sick with both my pregnancies. I had boys. My sister was extremely sick with both of hers. She had girls.

  • No, that's not true. There are no symptoms that will tell if it's a boy or a girl. The only way to find out 100% for sure if it's a boy or a girl is with an amniocentisis (not sure of the spelling on that one).

    My SIL has two kids. She felt great during her first pregnancy, and was really sick during the second. These two pregnancies could not have been more different. They are both boys.

  • i heard the exact opposite lol. my friend (a old jamacian lady i used to work with way back when) told me that if you're sick and having a hard pregnancy it's going to be a boy, but if you have a good pregnancy it's going to be a girl. with me it was right! with my first son i had pre-eclampsia, with my second son i had horrible morning sickness, but with my girl i had no problems at all lol. i think it's just a tale though

  • I don't think so, my mother wasn't sick with me or any of my sisters. She got pretty sick with my youngest brother though. I don't think it has anything to do with determining the sex.
