So for the past 2 weeks DS has been insisting that I do not have a "boy" or "baby brother" in my belly, but have a "baby sister" in there. He is starting to get frustrated when we ask if its a boy or girl, or ask "what if its a little boy, or little brother". NO mama, my baby sister! I wonder if he's right?? He's almost 2...wondering if he really knows the difference? Have your LO's guessed the sex of their siblings?
I haven't posted much recently, but my 3 year old is the same way. She REFUSES to think about the baby being a girl or a "sister". She told me this morning "I wonder if we're having a baby boy or girl" and I asked "well what do you think?" "it's a brother" "well what if it's a sister" "no!!!!!! brother!!!!!!!" and if you push her she will dissolve into full on tantrum.
She refuses to acknowledge the girl name we have picked out, but will tell anyone and everyone what her baby brothers name will be.
We honestly don't care if it's a boy or a girl, but I hope for her sake it's a brother.
DS thought for sure I was having a boy, but really I think that is what he wanted and that's why he kept saying. At one point he told me that I was having twin boys. LOL! When the u/s tech said that it's a girl, DS said "Aw man, I thought it was a boy!"
DS - Stephen 7/5/06 (born 6 weeks early)
DD - Sophia 9/16/11 (born at 37 weeks, 6 days)

What a cutie! I didn't tell my kids about the baby until I knew it was a boy. I didn't want DS to get his heart set on a brother/sister only to have the other one. So I found it easier just to tell him "hey you're having a baby brother". I have a sneaking suspicion that he would have wanted another sister because before I was even pg there was a set of newborn twin girls on TV and he would not stop asking me if we could get some twin baby sisters. Like we could pick some up at the store or something .
Kids are so funny! I actually kinda hope it is a girl, just for DH & DS. DH really wants a girl to have as his little princess! hehe its so funny because he did NOT want a girl, but he sees DS as loving his mommy, and he wants that with a girl. I think I'm destined for boys though, with DH's father being 1 of 7brothers, and DH himself being 1 of 4 brothers!
Oh yeah DS #1 was insistent this was a girl wouldn't even acknowledge it could be a boy and he was right!
And someone my sister knows is an OB and said that in her 15 plus years of delivering babies the siblings have only been wrong twice.
