I know we are to be happy with whatever the Lord gives us...a boy or a girl.  But I want a boy!  Is that selfish?  Probably.  Do I care at this point?  No.  We have 3 girls.  I love them with all my heart.  But I want a son, for me and especially for my husband.  He says it doesn't matter, but I can tell it would.  My oldest told us that before Christmas she prayed that I would get pregnant with a boy and have him a month after her birthday.  Her birthday is August 28th...I am due September 27th.  These next few years are going to be tough.  When the baby is 8mths old my husband will be going to Afghanistan.  He will miss first birthday, first steps...you name it.  I have never been without him that long.  I know they all will miss him.  I am incomplete without him.  BUT I HAVE to be STRONG...I HAVE to be.  Who else can my children lean on, cry on and come to?  I am not feeling good, the pregnancy hormones, and yes just the love of my man is getting to me right now.  I praise God for him all the time and he is my earthly hero.

Selfish?  Slightly.  Is that bad?  NO.  We have every right to be selfish sometimes.  As moms, we're constantly sacrificing for our children (most of us at least lol) and it's ok.  YOU know you won't love a girl any LESS.  You'd love a boy differently, it'd be something new, something to make you feel whole even.  But, if you DO have a girl, you'll come to realize how your family is perfect for you guys and you'll appreciate what you've been given. 

Either way, you can't lose.  Ultimately you want a healthy baby, right?  Boy is bonus.  So, you wouldn't be any less happy with a girl, just MORE happy with a boy, does that make sense?  Lol
