This is my first post to this forum. I'm 39 and 19 weeks along. Hubby and I have a 12 year old daughter and are making the baby journey all over again. This one was a happy surprise. We tried for years, lots of failed IUIS and three miscarriages so we thought that we were only meant for one child. So fast forward a few years and here we are!
So to my question, do any of you experience people in your life that are SO for one gender and not the other? My family and few close friends seem to think we really need a boy. My mom is all ready calling the babe HE. It's weird for me, I feel like there's going to be a huge letdown if I'm carrying a girl (even though I would love another girl.) At this point we are so happy to have another child, it could come out purple with blue polka dots and we would still be happy.

It did hurt my feelings a little hearing my mom hopes for a boy. I'm just hoping she gets over it because there's no exchanges lol.
With my last pregnancy I didn't do any genetic testing so we found out sex at my ultrasound. My husband was debating if he would go to my appointment with me or not. His comment was "If I knew it was going to be a girl I would want to go with you to find that out. But...if its a boy who cares". He did go and it turned out we were not able to tell on ultrasound. About my due date he made a comment like "If its a boy I don't want it". Man I was so mad. It turned out it was a girl so he was happy.
