Hi everyone. I am 16 weeks pregnant and have my 18 week ultrasound in exactly two weeks. My my son, I was positve it wa sa boy and was correct. With this one, I'm feeling girl. I'm just wondering if other mother's feelings about gender were correct. I can't find a statistic about mother intuition any where. By the way, I will be thrilled with either gender, I just want a healthy baby!

hmm see withme with my daughter i was sure it was a boy (sure enough it was a girl. lol) now this time im sure its a girl (so im a__suming it will be a boy. lol) i have 11 days till i know what we are having im very excited. remember early scans at 18 weeks can say girl & really can be a boy; some boys dont drop till closer to 20 weeks.

I actually did feel that I was having a boy, even though I really wanted a girl. I was right though. It did end up that I am indeed having a boy. I hear that Mom's are right about 70 percent of the time!

If your intuition was right the first time, then maybe trust your instinct. This was my first one, but my intuition said it was a girl...I was SO convicned it was! But alas, its a boy! Lol...its great knowing either way. I'm jsut happy he's healthy. ;-) ...and oh so cute moving around in there.

I was so wrong. I was CONVINCED it was a boy, to the point I was calling it a "him" and it turns out to be a little girl.

Oh and I had a preference for a girl, so it wasn't wishful thinking.

I felt with both of my daughters that i was having girls and i did, i didnt even find out with the 1st and i still felt she was a girl and bought girl clothes but kept the reciepts for incase but i was right. i feel again a girl but we will see on monday..i will let you know if my intuition is right...

I was very convinced it was a girl. I even had dreams about little girls and they looked just like my fiance. But low and behold it's a boy. And like Sarah said, I actually had preference for a boy but had convinced myself it was a girl. When teh tech said oh it's definitely a boy, I started balling my eyes out. I was reading somewhere that 70% of mothers have a maternal instinct telling them the s_x, but it definitely wasn't true in my case.

They actually give a statistic about it on this site in the topics > pregnancy section... studies found that women were right about the s_x of their babies 76% of the time. With myself, I had the funny feeling it was a boy, and it was a boy. :)

hey bubbasmon... with my last pregnancy i was sure it was a boy and sure enough my motherly instincts were correct. this time i was positive i was having a girl. i even took bets that it was a girl. so last wednesday i went for my u/s and come to find out i was wrong!!! it's a boy.

I was right. With my last pregnancy I thought girl and I was right. This time, I thought boy and was right again!

Well at about 10 weeks on I just "knew" it was girl, I wanted pink everything and normally I'm not that into pink, I had dreams about having a girl..well, my perfect 8 week old little GIRL is sleeping right across from me :-) I believe in instincts!


sarah21 - February 4

I actually feel kind of upset that I was wrong, lol. I feel like I have less maternal instincts or something. But DH's family and my family all said it was a boy so maybe that's what influenced my thoughts. Who knows? I am happy either way.

ITS A........... GIRL!!!!!!!!! My instinct was right again :)


bubbasmom - February 6

Congrats on the gir, luckymenm23! I am still feeling girl but will find out n the 18th (hopefully the baby will cooperate). The 18th seems farther and farther away the closer it gets - I am sooo excited. I will let you know if its a boy or a girl.

I was one million percent sure I was having a girl, even DH thought it was a girl... US confirmed... its a girl! :)
