Differences in boy/girl pregnancies?!?!

Hi, I am 21 and mummy of 2, a three year old daughter and 7 month old son! When I was pregnant with my daughter, I felt sick for the first few weeks, but was never physically sick and I also put on a lot of weight (over 4 stone) all over my body! (Not bad, coz I eventually managed to lose 5 stone)
When I was pregnant with my son I was sick every single day, including whilst I was in labour and only got a big belly, didn't really put a lot of weight on anywhere else! My friend also had the same experiences.
I would like to know if any other mummies noticed any differences between your boy/girl pregnancies!! :)

i dont think it depends on if it's a boy or girl..i think it's just the pregnancy in general. i have two boys and both pregnancies were completely differen. i thought my 2nd was a girl because it was so different from my first but no he was a boy..

well i have two girls and i had a completely different experience on both.on my first i was sick for the nine months actually vomiting.my skin was sensitive and i gained a good bit of weight&i had back pain.
my second i lost weight ,no sickness just slight sick feeling for 3weeks from id say 8weeks preg it was on and off.i didn't get a big bump and i carried very low.On my first i carried from right under my boobs i was huge for my 5foot height. no back pain i felt brill compared to the first preg.i had no cravings on my second and had a different craving for each week on my first lol.

Hi with my Daughter i lost a little weight at the start and 5kg i was nauseous 24hrs a day for the from about week 7 til 12 weeks, and craved steamed veg in that time too... i throw up a couple of times and had no control over it, ( didn't know i was going to until it can out... very embassaring.. lol), when i went into labour my waters broke but nothing happened ended up being induced 2 days later. then walked out of the hospital thin then before i started... and carried all out front, With my son i felt sick for a few weeks, never throw up though, and ate heaps of junk so i was huge with him, i held alot of fluid in my legs to the point there was no difference between my thighs and my ankles... lol.... not a great look....

I have had 2 girls so far (pregnant with my 3rd child but don't know what it is), and with them they were opposites... first I never got sick at all, but my second I couldn't keep any food down the first 4 months.

when i was pregnant with my son, i was nauseous alot, never really threw up, and gained a ton of weight... with my daughter, i threw up almost every day, couldnt eat anything but fruit for the first trimester and lost about 5 pounds.. =) my son was 1 week late, my daughter a week early, but they weighed the same. =)

For some odd reason I didnt have to shave my legs when i was pregnant with my boys. The hair just didnt grow! Not the case when I was pregnant with my daughter. Very weird lol!

None. I gained 16 pounds with my first pregnancy, lost 34 with my second, and gained 3 with my third. I was sick with my first (had mono) but not terrible, my second and third I was extremely ill and hospitalized much of them, had preterm labor with both the second and third. Carried straight out with all 3. The genders were boy, boy, girl.
