I think my DD will be really upset if its not a girl. She keeps saying she doesn't want a brother only a sister!!! What should I say or do??
My DD said the same thing when I had my first son... But once he got here she didnt care at all.. She just loved having a baby around.. Then she said that about my second son.. She REALLY wanted a sister... But she was all fine when she found out it was a boy... She has stated that if this baby isnt a girl I have to keep having babies until she gets a sister... I dont want to break her heart but I have a feeling its another boy!! lol Shes going to be very dissapointed at first but they do get over it. Also, you can find a cute way to let her know babys gender.. Something that will be fun for her.
My boy INSISTS he's getting a sister! We're going to take him with us to the big U/S and I think he'll be fine with it. He keeps referring to the baby as his sister though!
Well if it makes you feel any better i'm 28 and have a 23 year old brother. I was mortified and devastated when my dad called the day he was born and said I had a brother....but...I wouldn't have it any other way. I got over it very quickly and now have the best little big brother in the world(I have to say that as he's younger but so much bigger than me). I'm sure she will get over it quickly if she gets a little brother. Just try and make her realize how fun it will be to have a little brother around.
I agree with everyone else - once the baby is there, it won't matter.

My son is going to need deprogramming if this baby isn't a girl. He calls my belly "baby sister". He's asked for a baby sister since January, when his bff at preschool got one.
