Did anybody have severe morning sickness during there pregnancy with a boy?

I am just curious to see if the old wives tale is true about having a boy mild to no morning sickness, having a girl, severe morning sickness.

  • I was sick several times/day for the entire 9 months, had to go on 5 different meds to find one that sorta worked, but I still threw up many days. This was with my 4th - he's a boy.

  • I only had boys..and I had severe morning sickness with 2 of them. My oldest I had it the entire pregnancy. My last only until about 14 weeks. That's a seriously busted old wives tale.

  • for me that is completely the opposite! my girl was by far the easiest pregnancy. i felt fine even at the very end. not a ache or pain the whole time. with my second son i had terrible morning sickness. i was sick as a dog even before i found out i was pregnant! thought i had a really bad tummy virus or something. my friend (an old jamacian lady i used to work with) told me that boys don't respect their mother's body and you always felt terrible when you were pregnant with boys. for me that was true lmao. i have 2 boys and 1 girl.
