From the start of this pregnancy, I have said that logically this baby should be a boy. We used fertility medicines that allowed us to time the conception of Little Laundy. The HCG trigger shot ensured the timing of our IUI lined up with ovulation. There is a theory that male sperm swim faster and female sperm live longer. So, if our timing was right, the fast male sperm should have reached the egg before the female sperm had a chance. But...we did baby dance at home before the IUI, so there certainly could have been longer-living female sperm at the right place at the right time. So it was a scientific coin-toss.
I did have a strange dream a couple days before we found out the sex of the baby. In my dream my deceased grandfather (who I knew was passed) was telling me how important it was that we circumcise our child and send them to Catholic school. I'm agnostic, but many mediums say that our deceased loved ones come to us and give us messages through our dreams. My plan was to do neither of those, so it very well could have been a message from beyond that a baby boy was on his way!
As far as motherly instinct or a gut feeling, I did not have a
feeling one way or another. The Chinese lunar calendar predicted a
girl. The heart-rate ranged from 180-152, which also indicated girl.
But this baby is all boy!
Did you/do you have a gut feeling what sex your child is going to be? What sex(es) did you end up having? Were the "predictors" that you used correct?
