Yes, another gender issues thread. We have an u/s scheduled at a fun place on the 29th of May and then our anatomy scan on the 9th of June... and I am terrified this baby is going to be a boy. We have 2 boys already, I love and adore them and couldn't imagine any other babies but mine. But my heart aches for a girl, to have a daughter. There is a chance this could be our last baby, though DH has said we could try for a 4th if this one is another boy. I have always wanted 4 kids, all boys or not. But I want a girl something awful. I don't have fears of raising boys or anything, but I am scared of missing out on that mother/daughter bond. Me and my mom have a great relationship, even if she does drive me bonkers sometimes. I just... I want a girl!!!! Thankfully DH knows how nutty this is making me and let me schedule the earlier u/s, though I will probably be kicking myself if I go and pay 100 dollars to have someone tell me it is a boy... BLARGH!!!!!

I actually just moved my "for fun" gender scan to THIS Saturday... as in 3 days!! So I guess now I only have 3 days to fret about it? I will be almost 18 weeks so they said it should be fine <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Plus I will have my OB anatomy scan on the 9th of June still..

good luck, chely! I definitely sympathize with your feelings and I think I know what you mean--I'm glad you were able to schedule the early scan so you can find out asap and stop fretting about it! I hope you see a perfect, healthy baby, and I hope it's a girl!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Thank you hyz <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I feel so horrible sometimes because I feel like I should just be happy to be pregnant again but I can't help really really wanting a girl...

I have 3 girls and honestly, if they had been boys, I would have really ached for a girl. I'm happy this one is a boy, but if my first few had been boys, I think I would have been really anxious. I still had mixed feelings about having a boy, I'm glad we did the "fun" u/s, I'm surprised at how happy I am! It was a little bittersweet because we lost our last baby and he was a boy, but overall very pleased <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Good luck on Saturday!

I'm glad I am not the only one who is anxious about not having only one sex when it comes to my kids... I think I would feel the same way if we had all girls, I would really want a boy. I just want to experience parenting sons and daughters and I want to be able to share things with a girl and teach a boy how to be a good man and just... I want both!!! LOL

I have two boys and would really love a girl as well! I'm not planning an ultrasound but it's so tempting so that I can find out and stop wondering. I totally hear you.
