Morning sickness-boy/girl?
Anyone out there that can shed any light on the morning sickness meaning boy/girl? I have only been pregnant with girls. I got horrible morning sickness with all of them. This time, even though I am only about 8 weeks, I really have none, other than occasional nausea that comes and goes. Nothing like the vomiting episodes I had with my daughters. I am hopeful! I have read that even some scientific studies have proven that morning sickness is linked more to girls than boys. Any of you experienced this as truth? I want a boy so bad, but I will love another daughter just as much. Just thought the lack of morning sickness might mean something (:

i have two boys and i had no morning sickness with my oldest. very mild with my second am only 7 wk 3 dys and its been horrible and its all day no morning just all day long. and so exhausted and tired its just horrible. I hope it goes away after 12 weeks because i dont want to feel so horrible. I love being preggers but this one I cant wait till all the bad feeling goes away. from the vomiting to the nausea and the constipation and now the diarrhea its one thing after another. am ready for (her, I hope) to be nice to her mommy.\
I found out about my pregnancy 4 days prior to missing my period because I just felt so miserable. I am a flight attendant and i was just BLAAAA!! and my co-worker was like your pregnant and since we had started trying mid July. well.... Wala.....
hope it helps for all of you out there. As well as I. I can only sit and wait. lol

I am about 7.5 weeks pregnant and i have been nauseas from about my 5 week, on the verge of vomiting all the time. I am 35 yrs old and this will be my first child. I REALLY REALLY hope i am not going to have morning sickness for much longer, as i cant concentrate at work, cant handle most smells, dont enjoy food anymore, and been taking nasuea homoepathic tablets, drinking ginger, trying EVERYTHING, and nothing helps. I dont mind if it's a boy or a girl, just as long as it's a healthy baby.

I have been SO MISERABLY SICK since 6wks. I am 8 weeks now, and I found relief in the form of UNISOM. THE DOXYLAMINE ONE. I read it was safe to take. Does anyone else have any experience with this? I skipped it two days ago, because I didn't want to take anything prego, but I couldn't even hold down water. I Just want to make sure I am not doing any harm, it is just so hard to deal with the morning sickness. It can break my spirit pretty bad.

When was pregnant with my son I got sick twice the whole time after that I was fine with no morning sickness at all. But, being pregnant the second time I am getting sick on daily basis and my stomach is very sensitive to certain smells.

Oh my goodness this topic is ancient but so interesting! Thanks to everyone for their info. It took me an hour to read it!!  Maybe someone can collect all the data and do a study on if it really does determine the baby's gender lol. With my daughter I was considerably ms up to about 16 weeks. This is my second pregnancy and I feel even worse than I did with my first pregnancy. Not sure if that means another girl or not. It does seem though from info posted here that ms often means a girl.  i'll let you know when I find out. My mom had 3 of us, two girls and a boy and no ms for any of her pregnancies.

I too have had no morning sickness (12 weeks along and my first) but I am hoping for a girl. This topic is very interesting and fun to read all the posts. We are not going to find out the sex so I will have plenty of time to wonder. I realized the other day that if we do have a boy it will be the only way for my husbands family name to be passed down There are no other boys in the family. This is making the idea of boy vs. girl a little bit more tolerable : )

Its different for everyone. I think it all reflects on your own hormone levels prior to pregnancy. I was sick with my son, couldn't stand meat at all. My sister in-law had to be medicated thats how bad her morning sickness was for 9 months...she had a boy, her second pregnancy she was sick first 3 months and was ok for the rest. I'm four months pregnant now and haven't been sick at all...I.m eating everything in sight :S

This is my first pregnancy. I am at 5 weeks now +-. I am very excited but very scared in the same breath. I don't know what to expect.& I am scared of giving birth. Is giving birth as horrible and painfull as the process sounds?

I think its different for each woman, i usually get terrible sick when i get my periods due to the slight rise in testoserone ;1st pregnancy i was really sick from week 4 till 19wks. i had hyperemis G, i had a boy. 2nd baby i wasnt sick at all  [never vomit nor nausea], had a girl. 3rd pregnancy  terribly sick again had a boy. 4th pregnancy never sick again got a girl, so i will say it depends on the woman and her reaction to the growing  baby.

oh my gosh. I am dying to know if I will have a boy or a girl. It's too early I guess. I am now 14 weeks, and I know I still have to wait other 4 weeks at least to know for sure, that is if the baby cooperates in my next ultrasound.
I would love to have a baby boy, but if it's a girl I will love her as much. As long as it's a healthy baby I will be extremely happy.

Well I am the opposite to you, I have 4 sons and with all of them I was very tired and weak and giddy most of the time I was unable to even go out because whenever I would try and go out and walk anywhere I would always becoming very flushed and my face would pulsate then I would see stars shortly after that I would lose my hearing and everything would go black.  I would have to sit down no matter where I was and wait for everything to go back to normal but I never actually lost consciousness. but I did gain alot of weight as I was always eating I loved food with them and had no control. I was pregnant again last year but sadly miscarried at 10 weeks so I never knew the sex of the baby but I was full of energy I was running up and down with my kids and their friends to the park thoughout the summer playing rounders and football with them and was so happy the only thing was that I couldnt stand the smell of food so I believe I lost a little girl. Now I am 11 weeks pregnant and I feel sick all the time I have this nasty non metallic taste in my mouth all the time cant even stand to brush my teeth as the tooth paste make me sick I cant eat anything everything makes me sick even down to the smell of washing powder and washing up liquid which I loved the smell of whist preggers with my boys I even had a craving to eat it and did taste it {washing powder} with my first son ;-o ...so I am wondering if its a little girl I'm carrying but I have ages to wait... so do you know what you're having now? ...hope that you get your little boy

This really gives me a hope. Im desperate for a boy and I started with PG and Morning sick ness. I had it for my first time too and had a daughter..I was worried that same symptoms both times cause same gender. But your case is a good example to soothe me. I hope I am having a boy.

I am 7 weeks pregnant with my second. With my first, the pregnancy was a breeze. I had no morning sickness or nausea. Turns out it was a baby girl!!!! This pregnancy is slighty different. I get a little sick in my stomach after eating but I feel like I want to eat all the time. I'm starting to believe it's a baby boy this time around. I am also extremely tired but I have heard that is due to second pregnancy. Hoping for a baby boy! I feel really confident about it. Just hope this sickness doesn't turn into something worse : / Good luck to all you moms to be out there. Hope your wishes come true!

I was losing weight because all i could keep down were crackers...ive never been so sick in my life....im pregnant again and am 7 1/2 weeks have been extremely sick for past 2 days but other than that ive felt great just tired...hope this mean a girl! I dont think its true that alot of morning sickness means a girl but ive heard that both ways that alot means a boy and i had alot and had a boy...my mom says her pregnancies with 3 different girls were easy and she felt great and with my brother it was miserable, alot of sickness, weight gain, swelling, etc...

Hey, I don't mean to discourage you or anything, I hope you have a boy as you are wanting... but my experience has been different. I have a baby girl who is almost a year old now. Will be celebrating her first bday in a few weeks. :) But I had a perfect pregnancy with her, no morning sickness, no nothing! I had a hard time believing I'm pregnant, that is how good it was. Now I'm 12 weeks along with my husband and I's second baby... in those first 3 months I have experienced only 2 hours!! of nausea total and didn't even through up. Just bad headache with it, and went away after 2 hours. So I'm wondering, too if it's another girl since it's so similar to my first pregnancy??? I was surprised that so many ppl experienced the opposite. Who know we might be expecting a boy! :)

My first pregnancy I had bad hyperemesis from 6 weeks pregnant right up until 15 weeks thankfully it subsised 1 week later I found out I was having a girl.    2nd pregnancy yet again really bad hyperemesis unfortunatly I suffered a M/C at 9 weeks now I'm on my 3rd pregnancy I have bad morning sickness but it only started at 7 weeks but its nothing like I had last 2 pregnancies I am hoping for a boy but just because your morning sickness is different it means nothing morning sickness is caused by lack of protien because baby is taking all your goodness it leaves you feeling sickly hungry however if your not having morning sickness just means the ammount of protien your eating per day is high

I guess it is different with everyone. I had terrible morning sickness with my son- it was so bad that had to get IV's for my dehydration due to vomiting. I don't believe it determines gender. The most accurate way to find out a babys' gender is from the  ultrasound. But good luck to you, I hope you get your baby boy! :-)

I was so sick with both of my boys, my first son i was 155lbs and i lost 25lbs, with my second i was also sick with him, I'm pregnant now and i do believe I was going to have twins because i was sick all the time a weak and didn't eat much and after the bleeding for two days it was like i was full of energy and not that much sickness going on and I am still pregnant. From what i hear not all pregnancies are the same.

I have 2 boys and was sick for the first 6.5 months with my first one and 5 months with my second....I lost weight both times and never gained by the time I had them....both were healthy and over 8 lbs...I also had really bad heartburn with both....I am now 17 weeks tomorrow with our 3rd child....I have still been sick but not as bad....I can eat anything and not get heartburn!! I am hoping for my little girl to complete our family.....(would love another boy the same but I think every women wants and hopes for a girl...so the no heartburn is the only difference I've had so far.....
