with baby #1, i thought a boy would be nice because then he would always be the older brother to everyone else. but i wanted a girl because i liked the name we picked. didn't know until she came out what she was going to be.
baby #2, wanted a boy and i was so sure it was a boy because my pregnancy was complete opposite of the first. also couldn't find out until SHE came out. we were so sure it was a boy that we didn't even pick a girls name until 2 days before and i said just in case, we do need a girl name.
baby #3, we really wanted a boy this time. i went for my us and the baby flipped really quick and the tech said, i'm pretty sure it's a boy. i was not completely convinced because it was so quick and after that, the baby would not cooperate. so i bought a couple blue blankets but everything else was neutral. but we finally got our boy!
and this baby, #4, was not at all shy and very cooperative at the us so we know it's a boy. dh wanted a boy and i did just to even things out. but i really wanted a girl because i was gonna go all girly this time with stuff since i couldn't with my other girls. pink bouncer, pink toys, minnie mouse car seat/stroller, loved the name we had in mind.....maybe we should try once more after this one...
Our first (and only) we didn't find out gender and we really didn't care one way or the other. I went back and forth between thinking it was a boy and girl. I would've loved to have either, but I was a little nervous about a girl because I was afraid I wouldn't know how to fix her hair. Silly, yes, but I was scared. Plus I knew I would be in big trouble shopping because girls clothes are always so much cuter and the dresses, oh my! I would've gone into debt! But anyway, we had a boy!! I love it! He loves all boy things, but he also loves to cook and occasionally be sweet with his boy baby doll. And he is just so much fun! :) WHen baby #2 happens, I don't know for sure, but we will probably be leaning towards having another boy, but I would be just as happy with a girl!
When I became pregnant with my DS, I had myself convinced it was a girl. Idk why exactly...but I think it was bc I didn't want to get my hopes up. When we found out he was a boy- we both nearly screamed with joy.
DH wants to start trying for #2...I am terrified at the thought of having a girl. I wouldn't know what to do with her...and the thought of her getting knocked up or dealing with the crazy teen years. NO THANKS.
