@trulyblessed:  Thank you for that honest post!  I am not having a baby any time soon, but I am also really set on the idea of having a baby girl when my time comes.  I like the idea of a little girl so much that I feel guilty about it and wonder what I would even do with a boy, so I find your post very encouraging.  It’s reassuring to know you will fall in love with your baby no matter what! Your son is ridiculously handsome, by the way!

@trulyblessed: Awwww! First of all, your baby boy is so handsome! I, too, also thought of myself having a daughter. Her name was corryn, and I talked to “her” in my belly all the time. Turns out, corryn was Holden! I was shocked. It took one purchase of a sweet button up, and I was sold. Now, my relationship with my now 8yr old son is like no other. I am getting married in may, and planning to TTC soon after. I’m now terrified of having a daughter! So, I’m quite sure that’s what I’ll get lol. I’m a faithful woman, and I know I’ll get exactly what I need!

Could not agree with you more OP! I so wanted a little girl…had a name picked and dreamed of tea parties and ballet class, prom dress shopping and wedding planning. Then I was told I was having a boy. Poof! Here come the trucks and trains. But now I just love having a boy! He’s so much fun. I love spending time with him doing anything. And I’ve even come to think boys clothes are cute. Who doesn’t love a little boy in overalls?

Any mamas out there worried about the gender, don’t be. You will love your baby no matter what and couldn’t imagine your life with anyone else.

@trulyblessed:  I’m the opposite to you – I only want boys and I will be devestated if I end up with girls. I really, really hope that doesn’t happen but it’s not like you get much say.

@trulyblessed:  What a cute little boy!

We find out next week whether we’re having a boy or girl. I’m the opposite of you – I’ve always had this idea in my head that I was going to have a boy first and couldn’t picture myself with a little girl.

The last few weeks I’ve been trying to psyche myself up to the idea of having a girl just in case that’s what we’re having. I’ve even picked out a girl name that both DH and I love. I think I’m now at a point where I’ll be happy either way. DH on the other hand REALLY wants a boy so I’m afraid he will be disappointed if it’s a girl but I’m sure he’ll get over it once he meets her. 🙂

@trulyblessed:  Oh my goodness, he is just precious!

Thanks for the perspective – even though I know (logically) that there’s a 50/50 shot, I’m irrationally convinced I’m going to have two little girls.  I do have the experience with my two nephews to know that I would adore sweet, rambunctious little boys too, but it’s nice to have a reminder 🙂

Oh my god, those cheeks!! I want to squish them so bad!

I totally agree, Im a girly girl from a family of girls. I think deep down I want a girl & so does FI but if we have a boy I’m sure he will be the exact little guy who is meant for us. Frills are cute and all but mini Adidas Shell toes are even cuter 😉

@trulyblessed:  Thank you for your story–I feel WAY less bad now!

When I got pregnant, I was CONVINCED it was a boy. When I hard “his” heartbeat, I laughed and told the doctor what a strong boy he was going to be. When I felt “him” kick for the first time, I told my husband about what a strong “boy” we would have!

Then it was… A girl.

And I was lost. I wasn’t sad to be having a girl! I just felt like I “lost” the son I was in love with, and now there was a girl there, instead! And I had to learn to love her a little.

All I could think about was how she was only going to love me for 10 years… and then 10-15 years (or more) of misery!

I’ve calmed down a lot, and of COURSE I love her (girl is TOUGH!) but it’s good to know I’m not the only one who lived in Bizarre-O world after finding out the sex!

FI is convinced ours will be a bunch of boys since he has 1 girl in his family all the way back to the civil war.  The rest are all boys!!

So I tell him he’ll probably end up with a bunch of girls.

I’d like one of each!
