That said, I was kind of hoping DS was a girl. :p He's 3-and-a-bit years younger than DD, and we're not planning to have another baby for nearly four years.... so if that baby's a girl, she'll be 7 years younger than DD. That is a big gap, and while it would eventually be insignificant (when they were in their twenties), I imagine there wouldn't be that much commonality of mind when they were younger. So there's that. But then, the bext baby might be a boy... or we might not be able to conceive again... or I could get pregnant by accident next week. You never know! I do hope DD gets to have a sister, though; my relationships with my sisters are important to me, and it seems a shame if she missed out on that. But then, I never had a brother and I'm OK with that! So I guess I shouldn't project my own childhood experiences onto her... I guess it'll be fine whatever happens!
after having a daughter first, i kind of hoped my second would be a girl (i'm very close to my older sister and thought it would be nice for dd to have a sister as well). after a miscarriage, however, i realized that all i really wanted was a healthy baby. my second was a boy (and i'm absolutely tickled to have a son). if we have another it would probably be in the next 2-3 years. dd will be 6 or 7, ds 2 or 3. like you said, whatever happens will be fine.
