Obsessing

So dh and I haven't even officially started trying yet. We are waiting for my period that is due any day. I want a girl so bad after have raised a son now. I really want the best of both worlds!

I have spent so much time reading and on these forums that I have become almost obsessed with what I need to do in order to sway for a girl. Then, even if I try everything I could still end up with another boy. I would love either one believe me, a healthy baby is really the only thing that matters but I have such a strong desire for a girl that I know I'll be dissapointed if it's not a girl. Is this normal to feel this way? :-/

I was rsearching and saw gender selection can be done with ivf but we can't afford that.... So I was in Orlando in October last year for a work conference met a father of an autistic son we just clicked because I am a director at a residential facility for disabled children, he offered to hire me I laughed and said you know I wad looking to relocate soon took his number the next day we talked again and by chance he's a fertility dr and he offered me a free consult I and dh met with him in Jan and he does gender selection via iui and sperm sorting he offered me a sweet price for testing, meds, etc. And in return I travel and work with his son for a great extra fee. I love his family they are the greatest and he's religious and we both feel god sent us to one another. So I will be trying my first attempt in July and I get to go to Orlando like twice a month , which i love and we are seriously considering moving next year and my oldest is applying at the university of central fl medical program

Back to the procedure he says results are very high like 85% or higher. I chose iui vs ivf due to multiples and I want intervention but not to much as I still believe god is in control. Good luck and I just you all my pink baby dust I no longer need it :)

Oh ok. I though I was in a group with you while TTC her. I guess I'm just glad I'm not alone with the crying. We were supposed to go shopping after I had the US done but all I could do was cry. I wanted DH to have a son so bad. Didn't realize it till the moment I broke down. =0(

It's normal. I am the same way. I am driving myself crazy and obsessing of wanting a little girl. I am desperate.
