  • Not mine, but a friend of mine did that to his poor wife. Seems he was convinced he could just WILL the baby to be a boy lol. I'm sure he's just an over-excited papa and is really hoping for a son. It's kind of cute......in a big pain in the butt kind of way I guess.

  • Its funny because my husband is the only man in the house. I had a daughter before we met. We adopted 2 girl kittens, so he was sure the baby would be a boy to even things out. Now he is totally out numbered. I think he secretly loves it though and feels super manly taking care of "his women" lol

  • I think it's just natural for them to do that. We're having our third son and the guys in the shop where my husband works act like he's some sort of GOD. I also had a friend who's husband got really depressed and wouldn't have anything to do with preparations once they found out they were having a daughter. BUT, he cried the first time he held her and he's one of the best fathers I know.
