  • I dont think you can really tell by that-- but if its any consolation my daughter was very active around that same time during my pregnancy. I thought she felt like a fish flopping out of water inside me.

  • lol, I think that there is no way to tell what you are having until either an ultrasound (still not 100%).
    People told me my whole pregnancy that with my mild morning sickness, my healthy appetite, the fact that I was carrying the baby so low the whole pregnancy, AND based off of the heart rate I was definitely having a boy.

    Guess what?

    Kaylee Jane is definitely a little girl. lol.

  • My son was always super-active from the time I started being able to feel him. But I'm 21 weeks along with a girl now, and she's also really active already, so that's no guarantee of gender. (Not to mention that all the old wives' tales said my son would be a girl - except that I carried low, which I am again this time - and he's obviously a boy, so don't trust anyone until you get that ultrasound.)

  • I'm having a girl and all she does is move but i'm sure all those sayings about the way you carry and blah blah blah are old wive tales lol everyone tells me i'm having a boy but my 3d ultrasound said girl
