Even though my boy and girl get along very well and seem to really adore each other... I think there is something so special about same-sex siblings. I hope you get that second little boy!

and though i love my son as the joy of my days, and his brother before him, my heart longs for a girl. always has.

so i get it. and i hope you get your one more thing. i will say, though, if it doesn't turn out that way, adjusting your expectations may not be so painful as you might think.

will you tell us once you know?

I really wanted a boy the 2nd time around and ended up with a girl. I think they wrestle even more than two boys would. ;) Have funat your ultrasound in two weeks.

I know what you mean. I was giddy when I found out I'd have two of the same gender, even though I'd maintained up to that point that I didn't care. Because deep down, I really did care.

I hope you get what you want, but I bet you end up wanting what you get, no matter what it is.

I remember that feeling with my second, too. I thought, "I can do this if it's another girl...I know girls." The herculean task of managing two tiny beings seemed a little more manageable if they were both heading down the fairy princess/Barbie/twirly dress road...not so much if one of them was taking a detour to play in the mud with monster trucks and tractors. Funny thing is...I think my second daughter would be just as happy in that environment as she would in her big sister's dress up clothes. In the end you adjust the mental picture you had of what your future was going to look like. It always looks great, it just might be a different kind of great than you expected!

I am so with mothergoosemouse on this one. I, too, convinced myself that I didn't care about gender the second time around, but when I found out that my son will have a brother, I cried and cried because I was so happy and relieved. This was odd for me because I really wanted a girl the first time around. I hope you get what you want. I can't wait to find out. And if it's a girl, I would be just as thrilled for you.
