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.
