  • I had a girl first and was sick all through with nausea etc.. both my sons I was also sick with all through but had it the worst with my 2nd son.
    That whole 1 gender will make you sicker than the other is a myth made up by a man most likely.

  • what about all the other symptoms? (more or less tired, hungry, achy, insomnia, food cravings or aversions, emotional state and reactions, mood swings and all?)

  • I'm expecting my first child and she's a girl, I am almost 6 months pregnant and I still get sick quite often. Sometimes after I eat, I projectile vomit everywhere and sometimes I don't even expect it. I also pee like all the time and I'm always tired.

  • I had aboy about 3 years ago-then 6mths ago i just had a baby girl. and i will say they were different. I def ate more-I was sick for nearly 5-6mths. and with my son i was sick maybe for 2mths. I think i was more tired with my baby girl-prolly cause i already had a 2 yo-so ur going to be more tired regardless. MORE EMO with my daughter-with my son not so much. and def more mood swings with my daughter

  • YAY! I def have more mood swings this time, so maybe it will be a girl! I'm know i'm silly but hoping for a perfectly healthy baby, but a girl would be so great!

  • I had a boy first. I felt great like I wasn't even pregnant. I didn't have morning sickness or anything. During the first trimester, I was SOOO tired. I slept all day. I remember my husband coming home and asking if I was depressed. LOL. I craved mexican food and milk. Just had a daughter 5 months ago. I felt totally different. I was always felt sick for the first few months. I thought I was less tired...maybe because I couldn't just sleep whenever I felt like it. I didn't crave ANYTHING. I didn't have mood swings with either. I gained less weight with my daughter by about 12 lbs. I also carried differently. GOOD LUCK. I had a dream we were having a daughter and about a week later found out we were!

  • I was sick with both my daughter and my son but with my daughter I was way more sick. I believe the old wives tale about if you are really sick it is a girl. It was true for me!
