Before DH and I decided that we were sticking with 2, I had always wanted one girl and one boy with the opportunity to try a third time if #1 and #2 were the same sex. So, clearly I want to be able to experience mothering children of both sexes. I still do but I've been spending a lot of time concocted reasons why having two girls would be AWESOME so that I don't feel like I have a preference that Sprog be a boy. I think I've actually done such a good job of convincing myself that another girl would be great that I now kinda have a preference for another girl. Mostly, I'm afraid of dealing with a tiny little baby penis. I'm mean, it like sprays and ****. Good thing you won't have to deal with all that

    Anyway, I'm so glad baby girl looks perfect and healthy and I think you made the right decision. I saw what I thought were boy parts during T's U/S and I would have been convinced I was having a boy if I hadn't had the tech tell us. That would have left me in shock at the birth and then having to mourn the "loss" of my boy when I should have been celebrating the birth of my girl.
    Having 2 girls already, I can tell you that it is awesome. They are absolutely adorable together. I'm sure boy/girl pairs are adorable, too, but there is just something about sisters.

    And that is the exact reason I decided we better find out for sure. Now I've got 20ish weeks to get ready for 3 girls. And we already have all the girls' clothes saved, so we're good there. I'm going to crochet some cute pink things, and I'm going to get some pink Aden and Anais swaddlers. With DD1, we got gender neutral-ish stuff, because we knew we'd have at least 1 more and I wanted to be able to reuse our stuff regardless of gender. With DD2, we didn't know the gender so anything new I bought was gender neutral. This time, I'm going girlie, just for funsies. Not that I need that much stuff, but baby #3 needs some non-hand-me-downs, too.

    Now to come up with a name! We've already used 2 pretty awesome girl names (IMO), how are we going to come up with a 3rd?!

    CONGRATS!!! Why did I know you were going to find out this time?


    There have been a couple of discussions on Zoe's BB back when everyone was having their anatomy scans about being disappointed. Most of us had some degree of this actually. I'm thrilled about having a girl (and it was my intuition), but a small part of me mourned that it wasn't another boy who would eventually share bunk beds with Aiden and wear all of his baby clothes again and such. I think it's pretty normal to wonder about being on the other side, but most get over this quickly and hop on board with reality never giving it another thought.

    Congrats on your little girl!!! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE having one of each but I kinda was a little disappointed when I found out Chloe was a girl.. I knew I wanted a girl but at the same time I totally loved being a mom to a boy and I kinda wanted another boy. I still do, dh however is against it. lol. My point is, we all feel that way at some point for different reasons so do not feel bad! Had they said you had a boy you may have had that freaking out part that you didn't know how to mother a boy since all you have is girls! lol.

    I agree with everyone else.. you make beautiful girls! A house full of girls sounds like so much fun!

    yay for girls!!!! i don't think its bad to feel that way, i probably would if it was me as well. I was sooo sure Lucas was a girl and when they said boy i had mixed emotions. I had no idea how to play or deal with boys haha. Now he is my little monkey and is a TOTAL mama's boy. And just think, your DH is totally out numbered now

    I'm the girl of a girl/boy pair and I wish wish wish I had at least 1 sister. I'm so totally jealous FOR your girls to have that growing up. One reason I'd really like to have another baby is to try for a sister for Clara. I have Andrea but they are so far apart that they'll never be as close as I think sisters should be. My husband has 4 sisters and they are so close to each other, they do everything together. I'm so happy for you!

    Jackie, I shared a bunk bed with my younger brother for awhile! I preferred it over sharing with my sister who is 7.5 years younger than me.

    Even though we found out with Teagan, I still bought everything gender neutral in preparation for giving hand me downs to Sprog. I figure I'll just buy gender specific things after Sprog is born

    congrats! Same ideas as everyone else... this is probably our last baby and I was honestly thrilled to be having another boy. Then when I thought about it I realized all the little things that I will never experience with having a girl. DH is actually the one already saying that we might have to try one more time because he really wants a girl...I don't think I can do it again.. but like everyone said..i think everyone has that same feeling at one point or another. Have you told your girls yet? Well at least your oldest?

    congrats on a girl!!

    I totally get you on the gender thing. One of the small things putting me off having a 3rd. Thinking stupid thoughts about the older two picking on a younger brother because they are so close and wondering if they would outcast the little one. And as much as I crave a daughter (My mum is my best friend and I'd love that relationship with a daughter) I do love having my little boys to look after

    I'm the youngest girl of 2 brother who are really close in age. I always wished I'd had an older sister. I think it's why I'm so close to my mum
