  • I have a boy. They ARE all myths. In fact, I was never as exhausted as when I was pregnant.

  • Nope. I'm pregnant with a girl and people comment on how nice my skin is, I haven't been sick or nauseous or anything.

  • half and half for me, with my son i was calm, happy, never sick, slept well, but i broke out in pimples like crazy and my hair and skin were super greasy and gross, i sweat alot too so i was stinky, but i was very content and docile, now that i am pregnant with a girl i am always tired, always sick, hormonal and bitchy, moody, agitated, but my skin is crystal clear, as good as it has ever been, my hair has gotten thicker and is shiny and smooth, i havent gained as much weight, i actually look really really good, but i feel like crap.

  • Oh I dont beleive that at all. I am just about 39 weeks and im having a boy, my face has broken out so bad!! I never broke out before I got pregnant. Im always exhausted, I feel like I have no energy at all. Its depressing lol. Only good thing was I only had morning sickness 3 times throughout the whole pregnancy.
