Does anyone believe in the old wives tale about morning sickness?? that if you have extreme morning sickness its a girl and if you have little or none its a boy?... Scientist have done a study on this wives tale and said there is some truth to it something to do with the horomones. With my son I had no morning sickness and with this pregnancy I had severe morning sickness I couldnt even drink water and was hospitalized 2 x. I was for sure it was a girl but was told it was a boy could the ultrasound be wrong? I ask cause they didnt show me the private parts of the baby cause i didnt want to know right away.

I had absolutely no morning sickness with the little girl I'm pregnant with now. And, my co-worker was hospitalized, and put on medicine given to chemo patients because her morning sickness was so bad, and she's also having a girl. I personally don't think that it has to do with anything about the sex.

Wow... I HOPE it's true! We have 6 nephews, 7 boys including mine. We are hoping this one is a girl and my 'morning sickness' was SO MUCH WORSE with this pregnancy!

I never had morning sickness with either of my girls, but this time I have had it pretty bad. I really believe this is a boy!

I had bad morning sickness with DS and none this time and u/s techs says baby looks like a girl so far, but will find out for sure on 15th :) so idk think that wives take is true.

Nah...I think its just the way your body copes with the hormones. I have had less morning sickness with this one but hope and prey it is another girl. LOL
