So we didn't find out what our first two were until birth and I loved having that surprise at their births, I also really didn't have much of a preference for either gender. For this baby I felt that she was a girl but I was also really hoping she was a girl as I lost my first DD at birth and as much as I adore my DS and love being the mama to my sweet boy I really wanted the opportunity to raise a girl as well.
We were not going to find out (I kept flip flopping on that) and DH said he didn't want to know so I agreed not to. Well the last few weeks I have been kinda worried that I would have a bit of gender disappointment if the baby was not a girl as this will definitely be our last pregnancy. It was more of a feeling of grief of not having a girl rather then not wanting a boy (if that makes sense) I was worried that if that happened at birth it may interfere with my bonding process at birth and I didn't want the baby to feel any feelings of any kind of disappointment/grief at it's birth and wanted to be able to work through those emotions pre-birth. Anyway I talked to DH about all of this last week and well today at our ultrasound (which was done to check on position of my placenta and also to check to see if baby was presenting any symptoms of SMA) the tech asked if we knew the gender of the baby and if we wanted to know and DH said "I am indifferent if you want to find out" and that I had brought up some valid thoughts last week. I thought about it and then towards the end of the U/S I asked the tech if she had seen the gender and she said yes and she showed me a potty shot and wrote I am a girl :)
I am 3 for 3 in my intuition of the gender of my babies :) I am also so happy I get the opportunity to raise a daughter alongside my son :)
Oh we also found out that my placenta has moved up, that baby is super healthy and is pretty large (97th percentile, which is what my DS was) Now my new issue is that the OB's are saying that they do not think I am an ideal candidate for a VBA2C but I am too happy to stress about that right now.
