I just have all this pent-up anxiety about how much I want this baby to be a girl! I will be finding out tomorrow at my ultrasound. I keep telling myself, "It won't matter either way, as long as it's a healthy baby- I know I'll love it unconditionally." And of course that will be true. But oh! how part of me just yearns to be the mama of a little girl! I haven't let myself get too wrapped up in the fantasy for fear of dashing my dreams if it is another boy. I thought that maybe if I just posted on this message board, some of my anxiety about the situation would be quelled. It's not doing me any good buzzing around in my head and I don't like talking about it to anyone IRL. And I thought, well, it seems like more mamas in the October DDC are having girls than boys so maybe if I put my bid in for having one too... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>
I am so excited to find out tomorrow and just know for sure one way or the other, and to get myself prepared for whichever sex this sweet little Piglet is!!!

I have two boys. Both times I thought I was having a girl. I really want a girl. I feel the same way you do. I don't think I'm going to be finding out before the birth - part of me gets really wrapped up in what if it's another boy. But the more I thought about it, the more I was like, a boy is GREAT too. At this point, I'll be fine either way.<br><br>
I think I'm having a boy this time too, though. Maybe I'm just being realistic. We'll see...

Well you've got time to grieve any disappointment you might have. It's ok to have feelings. I had the same ones. I got lucky with my preference and this time around we're not finding out as I truely am ok with either now. Own up to your feelings and then you can feel them and move past them with time. Or maybe it will be a girl and you can just be excited!

It's ok to have a preference about your child's sex. We all have preferences about way more random, trivial things... it's human nature. I'm also in the "really want a girl" camp and I already have one girl. My friend felt the same way when pregnant with her first (and probably only) child and ended up having a boy and being totally happy about it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I've been in your shoes, too, except I wanted a boy. It's ok to want one sex, and it's ok to feel anxious about getting it. Don't be too hard on yourself.<br><br>
I'm sending you girl vibes! I hoipe you get your girl, and I get my boy!

I guess all my praying, hoping and wishing paid off! We are having a girl after all!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/babygirl.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Babygirl"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br>
I could hardly believe it when the u/s tech told us the news. She said, "There's the sex- see those 3 lines?" And I wasn't sure what I was seeing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> so I had to ask what that meant (it was the labia and other girly bits.)<br>
I am so excited I haven't really absorbed the news fully. I was so preparing myself for a boy. I wish that it hadn't mattered so much, but I feel SO BLESSED to have gotten what I wanted so badly.<br>
I know I would have been very happy with another boy, of course I would. But I just have to celebrate extra since I'm getting my preference! Thank you, Universe, God, luck, genetics! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br>
May we all be so pleased with whatever wonderful children we're blessed with. They're all miracles and perfect in their own ways.
