I’ve Heard This Happens…

I’ve heard stories of toddlers touching their mom’s tummy and saying, “baby!” then the mom finds out she’s pregnant a couple weeks later. I’ve also heard of toddlers knowing what a baby will be before it’s born…like they have a 6th sense about it. Happened to a friend of mine…her kid was right about the next 3.

Recently, Pierce has been saying he wants a baby sister. A couple days ago,  he said it again.

“I know honey.”

“Where’s my baby sister?”

“You don’t have one.”

“Where is she?”

“We don’t have a baby sister, honey. You have a baby brother and a big sister.”

“I already have a baby brother. I want a baby sister.”

Oh, my….

Just to see what he’d say, I asked him once if he wanted another baby in the house and he said yes. I asked if he wanted another brother or a sister. And that’s when all this started. I’m sure some is power of suggestion (though I’ve never encouraged, just asked). But now he’s got me thinking if he knows more than I do. Only time will tell, I suppose.

  • Wow, this is very interesting. I had no idea kids had a sixth sense. When I first got pregnant(only days along) the hubby and I went swimming with the dolphins in Key Largo, FL. Women were warned if they were pregnant that they couldn’t swim with the dolphins, due to the animals sonar picks up on the baby. I had no idea I was expecting. When it was our turn the dolphins wanted nothing to do with my hubby. They sure like me though. It was almost like they were protecting me from my own hubby. It was a very cool experience. Thanks so much for stopping by and your sweet comments regarding my sick 4 year old.

  • How exciting if Pierce has a sixth sense and a little sister IS in his future! 🙂 Is that something you & your husband are considering? Thank you for the crawling tip – Logan has indeed gotten into our dog food 🙁 Needless to say, I would have been fine with him waiting 2 more months to crawl like your kids, haha!

    • We’d definitely like another girl. That would keep it even…2 boys, 2 girls. Our poor dd was hoping both her brothers would be girls. It’d be nice to give her one.

  • thats freaky! i havent heard that story before. i wonder if it works. i wont be trying it though … not just yet have enough with 2 lol

  • Girl–it’s in the water! If you don’t want another one right now… all I’m saying is–it’s in the water, so he may have some insight. lol


  • I have two friends that this happened to. Denise’s son told her he was getting a little brother soon and the next cycle he told her his little brother was here in her tummy. She did end up having a little boy.

    My other friend Shari’s daughter told her that she had a sister in her tummy and how long before she came out. Shari took a hpt and she was pg. Her daughter was right as she gave birth to a little girl last Spring.
