Ever since I was little I had an idea of what my family would be. I would have 4 kids, 3 boys first...then a little girl as the baby of the family.
So I was excited when my first 3 kids were boys. Everyone would always ask if I wanted the third one to be a girl- but I definitely didn't...it was part of my plan.
So here I am...pregnant with my 4th- which according to my plan would be a girl. Before I even knew I bought outfits, got paint samples, made a baby girl registry, saved an 'its gonna be a girl' profile picture for facebook and planned how we would tell our friends- heck- I even ordered the "pink inside" cake.
Of course you know what's going to happen...the ultrasound tech told me it was a boy. I wasn't upset at first but got in my car and bawled for the next 2 days and didn't tell anyone...not even my husband (although he figured it out). Then I started telling people that the U/S tech said it 'might' be a boy- ok- technically that's not a lie as he said there's a 99% chance that it's a boy- but I was in denial...something that I have never experienced before.
So I read up on it and apparently this happens to a lot of people?
I'm having a 4th boy. Definitely not as exciting as having a girl would have been- but I'm extremely excited to meet him and see what he looks like, learn what kind of personality he has and just cuddle with him. I will still love my little boy just as much as I would a little girl. I still can't stand when people give me that puppy dog look and say "oh no..." when I tell them.
Tell me- did you feel anything like this when finding out the gender was different from what you wanted/expected?
And yes, I know some people try hard and can't have a baby- let alone getting the gender they wanted. I'm also aware that this post is petty. So no need to post all about it because I already know :)
