    I mean I was hoping for a girl, but I’m dealing with a lot less gender disappointment this time. With my second son I could barely look at his ultrasound pictures, I put them all away. Which is awful because he’s the sweetest loveliest baby.

    I actually think it’s because of him that I’m doing as well as I am. He showed me that every boy is completely different, and he’s just so snuggly and calm - I could have 100 more of him haha.

    We were planning on this being our last though. Now I’m not sure. It’s hard to give up on the idea of a girl. I was already struggling when I imagined being done with babies, but I figured if this was a girl it would be easier to call it quits. Now I’m feeling like we’d like to take a break for a couple years - these 3 boys will be 2.5 years apart total. Maybe when this littlest one is two we’d think about a 4th

    I know what you mean, I want ready to be done either but thought I could suck it up if I had a girl obviously I didn't and that made being done so much harder.
    I'm glad you're feeling ok with it all though.

    we've decided to give swaying a go so that when we have another boy we can say at least we tried all we could

    I'm not sure if I'm kidding myself, if its just because I've been feeling pretty good lately, or if I've truly accepted my fate and made peace with it, but lately I've been feeling perfectly content with the idea of 6 boys. I know once I actually get pregnant and my hormones kick in I could feel very differently, but at the moment when I think of another baby I just can not see a girl. When I picture a baby I see a boy and when I think about a baby I think "he"

    The certainty that I'll have another boy hasn't put me off either so I must actually want another baby rather than just a girl :haha: probably helps that Reuben is just amazing and the other boys dote on him.

    Thank you, I'll be sure to update.
    Any attempt at swaying fell by the wayside. I don't feel like a girl is on the cards for us and right now I'm OK with that for the most part.

    Why do you say that? How are you swaying?? You should give it a go as you might regret not even trying to sway

    I was doing the gender dreaming girl sway, diet and exercise, but it all just gradually fell away.
    We did get ds2 an exercise bike to help him keep fit as all his sports are cancelled so I could try again on that I suppose
