I get asked a lot if I think its one over the other. I hesitate to answer, well, because I have been no good at guessing in the past LOL!
We had an ultrasound with the first 4 and of course found out of their gender before they entered this world. The last two we have been surprised. I guess I figured it would be easier to do a homebirth if I was working toward a goal "unwrapping the surprise."
I did not think Eve was a girl at all. Although others had pointed out to me that I was a bit sicker with that pregnancy. There are other things that were different just in the way I carried her. She was easier to carry. My back didn't hurt. Also no back labor (praise The Lord) With the boys toward the last few months they always felt so low, as if they would fall out at any moment. But I really took no stock in those things as I was only a mom to "boys" LOL and could surely only bring forth from my womb, those with much testosterone!
So what do I think this one is? I am really leaning toward another girl. I have had a very similar pregnancy this time as with Eve. No back pain, more sickness, baby is not low. Although there is that part of me that does not want to get my hopes up, and wants to stay down here in reality where I have a bad "girl" track record. In all honesty I would love another boy, but, I will say it out loud.......... my hope is for a girl!
Either way of course I just pray that this little one is nit together perfectly! I pray that everything is in its proper place, working and functioning in its proper fashion. I pray that the heart and brain and all other organs are where they where intended to be, and that every cell of this baby is acting as The Father wills it so. When you have an "un-tested" homebirth that is the biggest prayer.
I do have the boy name picked out already (it was our boy name for #6) its Lucas Madech. Girl names are hard for me, I'm not sure why, but if its a girl her name will be Ava Rose. I love the name Rose, and thought that Eve and Ava would be a cute fit.
So what have you noticed about your pregnancies? Have you been able to tell what you were carrying just by symptoms and differences in your pregnancy? What have been the major differences for you carrying different genders?
