I’m months away from finding out the sex of my baby, but like what seems like 99% of women, I’m really hoping for a girl, and I’ve worried a little bit that I’ll feel disappointed if it’s a boy. And then I feel like a terrible person for feeling that way, because it seems like the only politically correct thing to say is that you don’t care about the sex as long as the baby is healthy. I hope that for all mothers, it goes without saying that our top priority is a healthy baby and that we’ll love our baby no matter what. But it’s nice to know I’m not alone in worrying about being disappointed. I want to thank the bees for being so honest in this thread.
@BothCoasts: Thank you for starting this thread, and congrats on your son! You are so close to meeting him!

You want more cute stories???You got them. 🙂 My 19 year old son was driving with me the other day and told me how much he appreciates all I do for him and how he knows he is lucky I am helping him out to get on his feet as a young adult, and I am a great mom!
I guess I had my 19-year review. lol

I said earlier I’m hoping for a boy. This is because growing up with only brothers was so much fun! It was often crazy and yes being an only girl I felt I had to toughen up and make myself heard within the immediate family (I guess this is why I’m so outspoken on here lol). They protected me when we were outside, if anyone said anything about me or to me, no matter what, one of the three of them would hear about it and approach the person and stand up for me.
I’m 34 now and about 4 years ago it was a week before Christmas I had been spending the day with a friend and came back to my parents house in the evening a little drunk lol. Anyway mum and my aunty were sorting out the Christmas decorations and they couldn’t untangle a long decoration so I took it and sat down and started to undo it. It’s an old decoration and I would fix it every year. Anyway my auntie said something about me and my brother who was in the kitchen walked into the living room and said “So she’s a bit drunk, but she’s not doing anyone any harm so leave her alone”. After all these years they still stick up for me.

we didnt find out the gender of our baby, but people constantly told me they thought i was having a boy (based on the shape and placement of my bump lol), i know Fiance really wanted a boy even going as far to name “him” so once i gave birth to our little baby who turned out to be a Girl! i was a little worried he was dissapointed but from the moment he saw her he says he wouldnt trade her for the world.
he is now bugging me for another straight after the wedding and i know his hope is for a boy this time. i dont think it changes the love he has for our child.
all you will care about once they hand him to you is that hes healthy and happy 😀
