Do you think that it is even possible?

My DH thinks this baby is going to be a girl, but I think that it's going to be boy. I have already had 2 boys and there hasn't been one girl born in his family in 51 years.

DH thinks it's going to be a girl because my symptoms are so different then when I had the boys. I told him its unlikely and not to get his hopes up, since he really wants a girl.

  • Well, one old wives' tale is how the baby is being carried. All out front is a boy. All over fullness is a girl. Then there is the string held over the belly thing. Can't remember which way it has to swing, though!! Either way good luck and best wishes!! ;)

  • it is always possible, but definitely dont base it off of your symptoms. every pregnancy is different and it has nothing to do with whether its a boy or a girl. I have a daughter and Im pregnant with our second daughter and these two pregnancies have been sooo ridiculously different.
    Thats crazy that you havent had a girl in that family in 51 years!!! I think thats the longest I have ever heard of!!
