I Gotta Feeling...

and I don't mean the Black Eyed Peas song.

Since before I knew with absolute certainty that I was expecting #3 (or as I've been quietly referring to babe as - my Wild Card), I've had feelings.

I had a strong feeling that I was pregnant (before I could reasonably test)
I had a strong feeling that babe is a girl (again, before I could even test to see if I was actually expecting... I had an almost uncontrollable desire to look through baby name books and only at girl names)
I now have a strong feeling that this babe is going to throw us for an absolute loop (hence Wild Card being my affectionate term of endearment)

I have definitely noticed that this pregnancy has been different... (premonition of things to come?) and I actually have to use the Baby Center Due Date Calculator so that I can remember how far along I was (in contrast with TT I swear I knew right down to the minute, okay slight exaggeration).

If this is baby #2, 3, 4, 5, 6... have you found your pregnancies different?  Have you intuitively known babe's gender, or is that just a misplaced belief on my part?  Did you have any feelings during pregnancy that you realized were well-founded, once babe was born????

"Measuring your baby from top to toe with his legs extended, he is about 14 inches/35.6 centimetres. He weighs a little more than 1.6 pounds/ 760 grams. Your baby's eyes begin to open around now. Response to sound grows more consistent toward the end of the seventh month, when the network of nerves to the ear is complete. He also continues to take small breaths and although he's only breathing in water and not air, it's still good practice for when he's born"  Courtesy of Baby Center Canada
