I know the feeling. When I found out ds1 was a boy I had to go out and buy him something so I could see that there are cute things out there for boys.
I really want a girl b/c all my life I wanted a girl. I love to play with hair and it just doesn't scratch the itch with my boys. I tried the longish hair for them but it is not like I could braid it. Although they did sometimes ask for a pony tail on the top of their heads. I will feel shafted if I never have a girl BUT my boys are so awesome that another one of them would be welcome and very loved.
MJB: I read your post and I had to check who OP was b/c I was sure it was me. I laughed at a lot of the things you said b/c it fits me to a T. Ds 1, 4yrs old, is "girly" I wanted both to be girls, and I also had a dream that they told us it was a boy and I was trying so hard to fight back the tears and said "no a boy is great" I was trying to convince everyone esp. me that I was OK with a boy. I think I will probably just laugh and say "I knew it"
We tried shettles timing. The other shettle suggestions like position and the O factor are a little fuzzy in my memory. I can't remember what we did during each try. Also I checked my pH but I couldn't get it down no matter what I tried. Any time I used vinegar we didn't get pg so I stopped that. It seams like a lot of effort just to boost your chances but I knew it was truly out of my hands but I was not going down without a fight.
So I am on team girl but I have a feeling I am only meant to have boys.
