how did you feel when you found out the sex of your baby?

everyone in my family has girls, my mom has six sisters and they all have 2-3 daughters and my sister has two daughters... i have my heart set on a boy... i saw little man button up shirts at target and almost cried. i'm trying so hard to be happy either way and i'm sure i will once i find out on wednesday... how did you feel?

my advice to myself is be happy its a human and hope its healthy. boy or girl shouldn't matter.

  • Well, I wasn't able to find out until he was born -reason being when they did the u/s at 5 months they couldn't tell because he wasn't in the right position. They tried moving him various times, but he just didn't want to show himself. My insurance wouldn't let me have another u/s unless it was "medically necessary". They told me unless something was wrong with me or the baby, I couldn't have another just to tell what the sex of the baby was. So, I think it was a blessing that I didn't have to have another one, both of us were healthy. When he came out, I didn't care if it was a boy or a girl, just as long as it was a healty baby!!

  • I was really hoping for a little girl and they told me it was a boy. I had to hold back some tears. And I told my SO it was all his fault, jokingly of course. All that day I tried really hard not to cry... but now I can't wait for my little man to get here and I'm just praying that he is healthy!

  • I wanted a boy && that's what I got. I was extremely happy && I guess I could say I was a little relieved too.

  • I know with my first it was a girl and with this one i was on the fence so to speak. Hubby and i really wanted a boy but figured with our luck and only wanting two kids we would have a girl. Well i guess luck was on our side (or hubby did his job lol) cause we are expecting a boy. But either way we would have been happy. And who knows you may have some wierd luck on your side as well and all you have is boys... Who knows..
    Even with my hubbys family there was no telling what we would have next. Oldest has boy-girl, Next has girl-girl, Hubby will have girl-boy, brother has boy only and youngest doesn't have kids yet.
    Good luck and let us know what it is.
