Gender predictions did they come true?

?

Did you Know the Sex of your baby before the scan? and was it correct?

  1. Yeah! It was strange I just knew!

  2. Nope hadn't a clue!

  3. I didn't really know, everything was pointing toward one gender and was right!

  4. I didn't really know, everything was pointing toward one gender and ended up being wrong!

    When you found out the sex of your baby did it surprise you or did you feel you knew anyway (not just guessing)?
    Did Your symptoms etc. go with he old wives tales of a boy or a girl, a few are.


    For a Boy

    1. Suddenly you can only eat mainly bland food and Salty food?
    2. Your skin looks better than ever? Maybe because you drink more water?
    3. You've gone off tea?



    For a girl

    1. You crave sweet or very flavoured foods?
    2. You look spotty?
    3. Your more emotional? maybe due to having two womens hormones now!


    It would be great to know if people got it right or not!

    They also say you can tell from a scan picture......if the back of the head is flat it's a boy, if it's rounded it's a girl.......that was my midwive's theory and it worked with both my two!!

    Hopefully later on this week I'll be able to tell you what gender my baby actually is..... but until then:

    At the beginning of the pregnancy I went off tea, I had periods when I could only eat bland food and periods when I could only eat sweet food. My skin has been pretty good all the way through the pregnancy and I have been more emotional. So what's your guess?!!! :lol:

    My mother in law did that one where she spun my wedding ring on a piece of thread over my bump and it said it was a boy, so we'll see!

    I really haven't got a clue what it'll be!

    oohh!!! blimey!!

    Have you tried nipple stimulation?? they say that can start the contractions off? Im not sure if youve heard of it, but basically you have to mimick sucking, some women even use a pump, but you can do it by hand.

    Well the bath hasn't worked!

    I have heard of the nipple thing, but don't fancy it much to be honest! Plus from what I've read you have to do it for hours on end for it to work!

    I had a strong feeling from the time I got my BFP that I was expecting a girl. I was a bit thrown off until my scan because I had reoccuring dreams of baby boys. When the u/s tech told me it was a girl, I was thrilled! I guess I should have listened to my instinct from early on.

    Yeah I keep thinking its a going to be a boy, but I wonder if thats more because I have a clear idea of a boy's name so subconciously it makes the idea of a boy more real cause I can put a name to it. Where as we cant decide on a girls name.
