With DD, I wanted a girl so badly that I almost lost it (sobbing) in the US when the tech said, "Oh, the baby has it's hands on its genitals-- trouble if you have it's a boy, right, ha ha?" Ugh. I still can't believe she said that. THANK GOODNESS she was a girl, because finding out in that way (hee hee! masturbation joke!
) that I was having a boy would have just put me under.
I would really prefer a girl this time, too, but my desire now that I am pregnant is a LOT less strong. (with DD, it certainly never weakened, only increased). So now I am wondering if part of that "desire" was actually intuition that she was a girl (so everything else seemed wrong), and if the fact that my preference is weakening now means boy (?)
Also, this pregnancy has been a lot less pleasant
With DD, I felt this overwhelming sense of calm almost the entire pregnancy. I don't know if it was extra estrogen, or what, but I was SO CALM that I even stopped biting my nails-- a habit I have had and hated my whole life. This time.... not so much.

I hope this is true! I guess my problem is that they become pretty "penisey" once they turn into teenagers, which is the stage I would absolutely dread.
