<span style="color:#0000FF;">I don't know if it's because I wanted a girl, even though I clearly saw the boy parts myself on the ultrasound, I just can't shake the girl feeling. I've even had two more girl dreams since the US. I'm nowhere big enough for a hidden twin (Although I think that would be cool.) and even if I was, the US was done by Maternal Fetal Medicine, so not likely they'd miss a second baby. IDK, it just doesn't feel right to refer to him as "him".<br><br>
Anyone else having trouble reconciling their vibes with what the US says? I didn't have this problem with the last three boys and I have wanted another girl all along.</span>

Me. I was SO SURE I was having a boy. Even though I'd originally hoped for a boy, I think I'd already starting bonding with the boy I thought I was having. It feels very strange now.

My doctor is convinced she is having a boy despite an ultrasound stating otherwise (see THIS is why my doctor is so awesome... first she gets pregnant every time I do so I dont go through it alone... SECOND she knows better than to trust an ultrasound 100%)

I've had a couple of baby boy dreams since finding out (via ultrasound and chromosomes) that this is a girl. I think I'm dreaming it because boys are my comfort zone, and most of the babies I've had are boys. ALL of the newborns I've had have been boys.

<span style="color:#0000FF;">The girl dreams are weird for me, because I never had any gender dreams with my other pregnancies, even after finding out what they were via US. I know it's probably just because I know this is my last pregnancy and no more chances for a girl after this, but still, it's weird. It was always easy to accept after a few days with my other boys.</span>

Me too! We found out on Friday we're having a boy and I'm still having trouble adjusting. I really thought it was a girl because my pregnancy symptoms have been identical to those of my daughter, even down to specific cravings during certain weeks of gestation.<br><br>
But I definitely wanted another girl so I could reuse all of the girl clothes. So I'm sure my disappointment is getting in the way a bit.<br><br>
I looked at boy clothes today and they're not nearly as cute as girl clothes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

<span style="color:#0000FF;">I know what you mean about the clothes. I was looking forward to sewing some clothes for a baby girl...they're so much cuter than boy clothes. On the bright side, I've still got a bunch of boy clothes from my DS#3 so, I won't need to buy any. It's been two weeks since my ultrasound and I'm still having this hard time adjusting. I sure hope I can adjust soon.</span>

I had a lot of trouble with my DS. My pregnancy was so much like that of my DD and I wanted another girl. I was shocked when they said boy and at ny follow up ultraounds (due to partial placenta previa and a car crash) I kept asking, "are you still seeing boy?" it was hard for me to accept! Not that I don't love my little guy, but yeah.. I couldn't shake the feeling he was really she!
