I have a 2 year old son and my husband and I are TTC. I really, really want a girl this time. I have only picked out girl's names, I have started buying girl's clothes and I am totally obsessed with Baby Capelli hats(www.jamieraehats.com if you like girly-girl things). I feel guilty because although I love my son very much and if I had another boy I would love him just the same, I'm afraid I'll be disappointed. Has anyone else felt this way?
oh my gosh you took the words right out of my mouth!!! my son will be 2 in march and i love him to death he is my world and we are only having 2, we are too TTC and i want a girl too! im trying not to jinks myself but i keep on looking at girl clothes and all that girly stuff! i will be ecstatic when i do become prego but more happy if its a girl! but i am right with you!!!!
I would have had some disappointment if the ultrasound tech would have said "boy". I have two girls- and I love it! So I can totally see where you are coming from. The husband wants to try for another one- a boy in particular. I'm just not into it. I don't want to take on another baby right now, but I also think that I am not excited about the prospect of having a boy. We'll see...
A month ago I would of been right there with you guys!But on Dec 18th,I found out I was having another Boy!I was really hoping for a girl..my fiancee wouldn't TTC until I said it didn't matter what it was..I told him I would be happy either way but I deep down still hoped for a little girl!See,When I went for my Ultrasound the technician asked me a few questions about birth defects and i of course assumed the worst(why would she ask?)So,when it came down to speaking with my Dr after I Really didn't care I just wanted to make sure it was healthy!and he wasI am a little disappointed but it's a 50/50 chance you take and at the end of the day as long as it's healthy is all that matters!I know for my-self thinking positively about it has helped alot..Like already having everything,Logan having a brother(may be closer?)just stuff like that..I hope it works out for you and you have your girl but you'll see even if you have another boy there are still lots of things to be grateful for!
Some days I feel like I'll be upset with a boy, but then I see the cutest little boys when DH and I are out and about, and I think I'll be happy with one. It goes back and forth all the time! I asked DH what he wanted, and he says either one will be a bundle of joy. I really do want a girl though...Not to mention we can't pick a single boy name!
8 years ago when my son was born, I was REALLY hoping for a girl. I didn't have one single boy name picked out, and it was even harder because out of three ultrasounds, not one showed the gender. But once my beautiful baby boy was placed in my arms, I knew that I wouldn't trade him for all the girls in the world. I have a best friend with a daughter, and I also have two step daughters. I do see the differences in them and a boy (my sister has FOUR boys!). I understand that some mothers don't feel they can bond as well with a boy, or do girly things like with a girl. But boys have their own joys. Like helping them to mold into a fine gentleman who treats women with respect, knows the value of a honest days work, and isn't afraid to show their sensetive side. There are too many women that I've known that leave all the male upbringing to the father just because they and the child are the same gender. Reguardless of the gender, you will love the child no matter what. Yes, I think most women are a little disappointed when they have a boy when they were hoping for a girl, but in the end, the love is unconditional.
I wouldn't worry about it too much. ^_^
Sorry if I rambled on there a bit... lol... I have a tendency to elaborate.
