    I know its really early, but does anyone have a "feeling" that you're having a boy or a girl?

    lets all guess, and then in Sept we'll see who was right!!

    I guess its a boy (even though I am secretly hoping its a girl)

    Well - we transferred 1 male hatching blast and 2 female blasts - So, I'm inclined to guess this little one is a boy since that was the "best looking" embryo. Although, my M/S indicates I'm carrying a girl.

    Okay - I guess boy (as do my IPs)!!

    Hugs,

    Going from the heart rate (old wives tale) I guess girl. The heart rate thing did hold true for my 3 DDs.

    "They" say that hb above 140 indicates girl and hb below 140 indicates boy.

    DH and I are both convinced we are having a boy. I think it's only because my sister has two girls and we are ALWAYS opposite on everything. We have absolutely no preference (probably because it's our first). I just want a baby!!!! 8-)

    I love guessing and I am driving DH crazy!! Betsy - thanks for the info on the heartbeat...I've been wondering that.

    Well the heartbeat was 162 which if the tale holds true - girl

    Everyone else says girl

    My gut feeling is a boy (but I secretly want a girl too!)

    Oh, shoot, if you go by the heart rate, then this little one is a girl! I have been getting right around 170 every day. Ugh!

    Must be a girl for me...heart rate in the 180's! Actually, I always had a "feeling" we would end up with another girl. This is unusual because we really believed we would adopt again. No question, we would have requested a boy!!! It's funny that I have never been able to shake the "girl" feeling, though. I guess we'll see if it was all in my head soon enough!

    Honestly, we will be thrilled with either one!!!

    I've got my DS so I really wouldn't mind a girl.

    If I go by heart rate it would be a girl, it's at 163. But my gut is telling me it's a boy, my DH thinks so also. Everyone else is saying a girl. I even have the nausea, heartburn and dizziness, which I didn't have with my son until much later.

    I can't wait until the next sono!!!!

    H/B around 160, all his brothers produced girls, plus I had a dream....

    So we are thinking and praying that it's a girl!

    well let's see with my dd I was great til late in pg with her. so far this one has kicked my butt with m/s & I am always so tired. & it likes to hide from the dr. lol First u/s took 30 mins to find s/he. I had started to cry but we found her/him & all was good. 2 weeks later she used a doppler for the heart beat. would not give it at all. 10 mins of looking came acrossed once 159 but s/he ran & went back into hiding so we knew it was there but where..lol so another u/s hehe we found him/her but s/he was not happy about it....lol This pg is sso differant from DD so I am hoping & praying, & really feeling like it is a boy....lol
    ( going to be just like his mom ) Don't bug me ....lol
