Wow. I almost posted a story very similar to this! I feel the same way. I have two gorgeous boys and am now pregnant with my third. I cried a lot when I first found out I was pregnant as I thought I didn’t pray enough for God to bless us with a daughter. I am so in love with my sons, and it’s not that I wouldn’t adore another one. I am a very girly girl, crafty, I sew and paint and cook and love lace and frills. When I am in the shoes aisle for kids, I tenderly and wistfully stoke the glittery girls shoes and tiny knitted jackets, and adorable mini tights. I am on the fence about finding out the sex of this baby. I found out last time, and like you, felt disappointed. When he was born in another emergency ceaser for me, and he was in intensive care for a week, I was so in love with this new baby, I trudged with all my stitches I couldn’t stand up and had a needle from my arm to a machine, to breastfeed the sweetheart every hour. He has the most darling, sweet quiet personality, a mile difference from my cheeky, hypo first baby. I couldn’t believe I was disappointed he was a boy, when I met him, I couldn’t imagine loving any baby more than him and his brother. I find the comments and pressure on me to have a girl overwhelming, after all, we don’t choose who we have! Yet, most people I told, all said “Hoping for a girl, It better be a girl. I bet it’s a girl” My Mum – “It’s a boy, sorry to disappoint you”. :( No one realizes how deep these comments go. I will be so happy to just have a healthy baby, and I know I’ll be in love with whoever we have.

  • I’m so glad I didn’t have to deals with those comments. I had a mix of both so maybe that’s why. Good for you fir loving your 3 boys regardless


  • You’ll know by now… I hope you’re happy.


  • People can be so cruel without even realising it. You shouldn’t let it get to you, I’m sure their comments don’t cone with any malice. Sounds like you enjoy you boys, so who cares what bub number 3 is, you’ll love it snyway


  • Girl or boy, as long as their happy and healthy.


  • That’s right. No matter boy or girls. The most important they are healthy and cute.


  • I ended up having two of each. Just wondering now what did you have a boy or girl. I think boys are easier to take care of. Each and every child is truly a blessing


  • little boys are great fun ….. :)
