Do you believe in "female intuition"? Have you ever ignored/listened to that inner voice that told.

flanz, it's your body so do what you feel is right, you don't have to listen to your husband. In such a matter, I probably wouldn't even tell my husband, some things are just between me and my doctor (and for my husbands health, same goes).

I definitely believe in women's intuition. Here are a couple of examples:

Several years ago, dh and I made an investment in stock. It was a great investment and one that continues to grow today. However, dh's broker recommended that we sell that stock and invest in another smaller, newer company that was expected to grow.

I had a really bad feeling about it. And I really didn't trust this broker guy either. DH is very logical and my feeling did not make sense to him logically, so he decided to get the new stock. Several months later, that company went bankrupt and we lost all the money we had invested.

Another time when my dd was 4 months old, she had been sick with a little cough. I decided to keep her home from church that Sunday morning. DH didn't think it was anything, but I insisted and took her to the urgent care center. Turns out she had pneumonia and had to be taken by ambulance to the children's hospital where we spent the week.

DH doesn't completely ignore my "feeling" anymore, but it does take a lot of convincing to go along with me.

When my oldest was a year old I dreamt he had autism. This was 19 years ago when autism was an obscure disorder. I had to look it up. This intuition was correct. It took another 18m of trying to get someone to believe me. When he was finally seen by a neurodevelopmental specialist the dx was quick as my son has textbook signs.

The first time I met my husband (at college) I knew he was special. My dorm mates said it was a bad thing to get involve with a Butte boy. I am glad I went with my "heart" instead of listening to the crowd.

The other side of this story. When I met my husband , he was going out with a girl that I ended up sharing an apartment with.

She never wanted us to meet, because she "knew" that if we did he would break up with her to be with me.

I'm quite intuitive/a good judge of character/situations, but my problem is listening to myself. I really need to do that more!

A few times. Once when we were driving to get paint to paint our nursery, I had the urge to call my best friend. It was around 7:30 and I just got a weird feeling. Her dad answered, and the first thing I said was "is she okay?". She had been t-boned by a semi leaving work. Her truck was destroyed, but she suffered only a broken collarbone and some cuts from glass.

After the birth of our daughter, she was only a week and half old and I told my husband that something was not right. We took her back in and found out that I wasn't producing much of anything and she was starving! The weird part was she was still having wet diapers and bowl movements, so no real indication she wasn't getting enough. We went to formula right away and tried all sorts of things to get me to produce milk and after two months gave up and she thrived on formula. Still sad about that, but happy I listened to that intuition!

Third time was when my daughter was 2 and I was pregnant again. I had a sharp pain in my side while my Dr. was on vacation. I called the on call and they thought that it might be a UTI. Sent me to the nurse, ran tests and found a slight infection. I got meds and was sent home. A week later I still had a nagging feeling in the back of my head. I woke up exactly one week after the initial pain and threw up and passed out. Called my Dr. who was back in town and she sent me to the ER for fluids, thinking I was dehydrated. Walked in with a BP of 54/25! Freaked the nurses out. They kept asking me how I got there. I told them my DH walked me in. Once it was discovered I knew something was up as they yelled for a chair and next thing I knew I was in surgery. I had a 10 week pregnancy that was ectopic and ruptured the previous week. I ended up losing half my blood volume and ended up with 3 units of blood. My Dr. was considering more, but decided to let my body work on the rest. It took about 6 months for me to be back to normal. I keep thinking that if I had taken my time going in, I would have gone to sleep and never woken up.

Yep the gut feeling is usually right. There is one instance where I was a little off, but was still close to the mark. I trust that gut feeling.

I believe completely believe in intuition. It's happened way too many times throughout my life to doubt it.

It's so ingrained in me, I can't even imagine ignoring it.

My left hand tingles sometimes, and that means that something big is about to happen. It's never failed, and the greater the sensation, the more life-altering what's coming is.

If PC is the way to get to Heaven, I'm going straight to Hell.
