  • Some moms have a feeling one way or the other. With my second, I knew I was having a boy. There was never a doubt in my mind.

  • I think its because we subconsciously hate calling the little person inside of us "it". When I talk to my sons about my pregnancy I always say her but when I think about the baby I always think him. I have three boys, I guess its just not getting my hopes up on finally having my girl lol.

  • When I found out I was pregnant with my 2nd child, I always called it a boy. My husband even asked me why I always say "he" when I talk about the baby. I didnt have an answer for him, "I dont know I just do" is what I told him. At my 20 week check up they did an ultrasound and we found out that we were having boy. I think part of it is subconscious and the other part is that we women dont like to call the baby an "it". Saying boy or girl makes it feel more real for us.

  • I agree with "sugamomma3". Throughout my 3rd pregnancy, I called my babies "Him and her" and I ended up having identical boys.
