Baby dreams

I have had a few dreams during this pregnancy about the new baby. Most I can't remember after I wake up and one was so terrible I wish I could forget it. Last night I had the most vivid dream to date.
I dreamt I was giving myself an ultrasound - it seems a friend's aunt had an ultrasound machine at her house that we were using - don't ask. And there HE was - the most perfect little baby boy ever (outside of Ryan of course), just swimming and kicking and blinking his little alien eyes. And he was a boy. Which is interesting considering my gut has been saying girl since I knew I was pregnant and I generally put a lot of stock in that since I KNEW Ryan was a boy and I believe I even said "I told you so" to Rob during the ultrasound.
This is going to make the next 6 weeks so hard! This little bugger had better cooperate and let us see what he or she is!!!
Did anyone else know before your ultrasound or birth what you were having?

Andrea,
I had a pretty good feeling that Bailey was a girl before the ultrasound. Before my ultrasound I even bought a Christening gown for her. I was that sure. We didn't even really have a boy's name picked out! At the ultrasound, they told us that it was 80% chance of being a girl but we took it as 100%. That was how sure I was.

I knew Audrey was a girl, just about from the time I knew I was pregnant. I really wanted a boy, but I just knew. I very quickly got glad about having a girl, and I definitely bought girl clothes before my ultrasound.

I knew Jackie was a girl too, right from the beginning. My hubby wanted a boy so bad and he would always tell me I was "willing" it to be a girl. Haha.

I knew without a doubt that Andrew was a girl. I had dreams, I had the old wives-tales symptoms, and I just had a gut feeling that it was a girl. I would have bet my right arm it was a girl. Imagine my shock at the ultrasound when I got a clear and unmistakeable glance of Andrew's little boy parts! I walked around for a week just saying, "It's a boy? It's a boy?" So much for my motherly intuition!

I always knew my three were boys. Dave was so irritated that I always knew and was right. We didn't find out with Aidan, but I knew and with the twins from day 1 I said, two boys. I just don't see girls in our future. LOL! Although, my sister is pregnant and I think it's a girl. We'll see....

I always knew in my heart it was a boy and we didn't find out beforehand. It was fun to be surprised. I also knew it was a boy because when I was about 6 weeks pregnant, my sister and I went to visit her best friend and to tell her that I was pregnant and when we did, she said, "I already knew." and we were like how and she said "Your Grandpa came to me in a dream last night and told me to tell you not to worry because it was a boy!"
I secretly wanted a boy so to hear that was confirmation and I truly believed it.

I, also, knew that Megan was a girl. There was never a question. The u/s only confirmed it! With Hannah, I didn't have a clue. I went back and forth a zillion times, and never felt strongly either way until the u/s...
