This is basically what's messing with my head also... If someone held a gun to my head and told me to pick which sex I'd choose I would pick girl... The only reason being, I have two boys and it would be fun to change it up a bit.
So, I have been only looking at boy names and just picturing boy because... even though this sounds stupid, I don't want to feel disappointed when I find out (maybe at the 19 wk U/S) because I feel that is a really horrible thing and I wouldn't want my baby to feel my disappointment (in the womb...
Basically I'm trying to force myself into believing it's a boy and now I kind of do believe that.
I don't want anybody to jump all over me about wanting a girl. I will be just as happy with a boy but I do long for a daughter at the same time.
ETA: DS2 keeps insisting he's having TWO SISTERS. I keep telling him that this is probably one baby and it could be a brother. He gets all angry with me... "NO, mommy, not a BROTHER."
I didn't think his little brother was that much of a PITB to him.
