I first want to say that I am the proud, grateful mother of a beautiful baby boy who is my entire world and life. Hes the most beautiful thing in my eyes and I cant imagine life without him. I have a ex best friend who kinda ditched me during my pregnancy and just got married this past saturday to a guy shes only known for about 7 months and is pregnant with their first child. Even though I think she is sooo morally wrong in what she is choosing. I am supporting her and I was her only friend at her wedding.(It wasnt that others dis-agreed with her it was just that they didnt feel like going) If you knew me you would know that I am about the girliest, make-up, nail polish, shopaholic girly girl you will ever meet and on top of it all Im a cosmetologyst. With this being said, when I found out I was pregnant I was hopeing sooooo bad for a girl but found out it was a boy. I wasnt crushed but just a little sad. Now I cant imagine having anything different but my little guy but I still want a little girl soooo badly.
Well today my ex Boyfriend or Best Friend found out shes having a girl and posted it allll over facebook. 🙁 All she kept sayingon facebook before she found what she was having, was how she wants a girl soooo bad and around the time I had my son, a good few of my friends had babies too and they ALL had girls!) So anytime she writes she wants a girl, all that my other friends do is talk about how much more fun girls are and how they are so much more fun to shop for…blah blah blah. It just rubs salt in the wound! The reason this girl is my Ex Boyfriend or Best Friend is because she stopped calling me, inviteing me out and everything during my pregnancy. And for her wedding I looked up her registry and saw she didnt get much so I went out and bought her a TON of stuff and put it in a huge tubber wear and wrapped a bow around it. She still has yet to even thank me for it on facebook.
My SO keeps telling me I will get my girl but his mom had 3 boys and no girls and my grandma had 5 boys and no girls. So boys run pretty bad in my fam. Im usually never a jealous person but sometimes it just happens……
Thanks for reading ladies if you got all the way through!!!!! =)

I think it is ok to feel a little pang of jealousy. I have always assumed that I would have a girl. We haven’t had a boy born in our family in 30 years! I have a step son so I just had it in my head that having a girl would be so perfect. Two weeks ago I found out that I am having a boy. I am excited and will love him to death but a little sad.
I love my stepson to death and with out him I think it would be even harder for me to imagine having a boy. He is so great that I know our son will be a joy.
Hubby and I have already agreed that this will be our only biological child but agreed we will probably adopt in a few years. So I’m still holding out hope on getting my girl.
I understand where you are coming from and we all have our momentary pangs of jealousy.
Sorry I hope it gets easier for you and I really hope we both get our girls someday!

I think it’s okay to feel a pang of jealousy! I really want boys when I have kids so I’d be jealous of you! I think they’re more fun and less drama in the long run, but that’s my personal opinion. I think you have a good chance of having a girl, but I’d focus more on the positives of having a boy! Maybe you can make friends with parents of boy children and you’ll get a fresh perspective. And when your current friends have their next children and if they have boys (chances are that at least one of them will!) you’ll be the go-to girl for parenting boys! 🙂

While I was at church for easter this weekend, a couple had their twin toddler boys dressed in identical, blue seer sucker suits. It was the darn cutest thing I have ever seen! Complete with mini ties and ittle bitty dress shoes! Boys are totally adorable too, so dont let your dumb friend get you down!

I can see how it would be hard to see someone have something that you wanted so badly. And it is especially hard to be jealous of someone you aren’t on great terms with, if you were on better terms maybe you guys could do play dates & stuff. But at this age you can dress little boys up and make him look like a little man. I think the tiny versions of grown up fashions are the cutest thing. Are you hoping to have more children? If so you may get that little girl and then she’ll have a big brother to look out for her.
