I'm a little concerned for my oldest DS. He has told me ever since DS2 was born that he wants a baby sister. Since he found out that "mommy has a baby in her belly" he has referred to the baby as her and his baby sister. He talked a lot about it this weekend...I always correct him with "it could be a boy" and he either a. ignores me completely while going on about his baby sister or b. says "but it could be a girl". He also has said a couple of times this one has to be a girl b/c we have enough boys. That one always makes DH and I laugh.
I'm glad for his sake that we are finding out this time b/c he might need some time to get used to it if he is getting another little brother. He might just disagree if we find out baby is a boy and keep insisting she's a girl.
I'm really hoping more for him than myself that this one is a girl.
I didn't experience this when pregnant with DS2 as DS1 was too young to know what was happening so this strong preference is new to me.
I know we have a lot of BTDT moms...what do your older children have to say about their new sibling on the way?
