Expecting baby #4, after 3 boys- gender scan Friday!

We have our gender scan Friday and I am super nervous. Our appt was Saturday, but since I spilled the beans to everyone about the scan, I decided to move it up a day to Friday, so hubby and I can get the news first, without a bunch of calls, texts, facebook messages, etc.

We have 3 precious boys already. I so desperatly want a little girl to complete our family. I dream of little dresses and headbands. It will just be so hard to accept I will never have a baby girl, if baby #4 is a boy. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE MY BOYS. They are the sweetest, cutest boys in the world. And I am so happy they have each other, but a girl would just bring so much to our family. I want my husband to have a daughter to walk down the isle, I want my boys to understand (somewhat) that girls are different, and emotional, and grow up respecting that difference, and not have a rude awakening when they are older. I want a daughter of my own to send to prom and on a first date.....and to not always be the MIL.

I just needed to say all that. I will not regret this baby, if it is a boy, not for one second. But, knowing this is our final baby, either way, I will grieve the little girl that I will never have.

After saying all that, I think it is a boy! Ha. I have no reason to feel that way, at all. Maybe it is my hearts way of protecting itself, or maybe I would just be so shocked because I want it so bad, and all I have every heard is "its a boy".

Either way, Friday will be a celebration. It is the 2 year anniversary since one of my twins had brain surgery and the day we find out if our family will be complete with a baby boy or girl.

Thank you for letting me get that out. Somehow it is easier to say those things here than it is to say in person to anyone. If anyone has any adivce how to prepare myself, or how to get through the next couple days, please share! I am trying to tell myself there is still hope.....

Wow wow wow!

I could have written this post!!

I am a mom to 4 boys with our 5th and last on its way.

My anatomy scan is Friday also! I am so excited - and yet so very very scared!

Like you, this is our last chance at a little girl.

I dream of a little girl also - and if I find out its yet another boy - I will have to let go of my dream - and accept that I will never have my little girl.

Everything you wrote - everything - I am feeling right now.

Good luck on Friday - I will be thinking of you!

Here is something I wrote -

 I am somehow unable to hear
What my heart is telling me
I think I have been feeling girl
But I cannot be sure.
Is it maybe because
I want to hear it so badly
That I am trying to convince myself
That maybe
Just maybe
My dream will come true...
But then
This loud voice of reason
Brings me make to earth
Screaming at me
Its a boy.
Is this because
Deep down
I know its a boy...
Or is this a way of protecting my heart from disapointment...
I just don't know
Every sign has been telling me boy
I should have no doubt
And yet
I still feel this pull
And I can't let go
That maybe
Just maybe

I am so sorry for your loss. I feel horrible even wanting a little girl as much as I do, when others have gone through loss like that. A dear friend lost her baby girl at birth 6 years ago. She now has 2 boys, and is pregnant with baby#3. We are both praying that we are both having girls, whom will be dear friends.

 I hope you hear girl on Friday!!  I am pg with #3 and I am so nervous about finding out the gender.  I would love a girl (for many of the reasons you stated) and am kind of terrified of hearing boy.

But I am glad you are able to celebrate the two year anniversary of your son's surgery.  And good luck Friday!! Keep us posted.

Good luck!! I hope you hear girl.  It's a little surreal at first.  I don't think I will believe it until I see the goods for myself.
