But I really, really want a girl this time... I have 3 boys (identical twin boys, and another singleton boy), and I'm now 6+2 pregnant again. Everyone keeps asking me if I hope it's a girl and I keep smiling and saying 'no I don't mind' - I can't even admit it to my partner, but I actually do really want it to be a girl I honestly didn't mind with my last baby as he was with a new partner and there was a big age gap between him and my twins - plus my partner wanted a boy, so I hoped it would be a boy for his sake. We found out the gender at 16 weeks and were both very happy. This time, already all I keep thinking about is finding out the gender ASAP - I've been obsessively researching the Ramzi Theory and desperately want to have a private Early scan to try and get some sort of indication using that. I don't know if we can afford one though I'm no good at the nub theory or the skull theory, but when I do have my 12 week scan I will be seeking out those on these forums who are better at it, to help me out! I know none of them are guaranteed or fool proof but I'm just clinging onto everything at the moment (including Chinese gender charts and such-like). This pregnancy wasn't planned - we planned to TTC again next year and I had planned to follow the Shettles Method to increase our chances of having a girl, but obviously didn't get that opportunity as I fell pregnant without us even trying...! So now im even more I'm convinced it's going to be another boy. Its only family that we've told so far about the pregnancy, but whenever I'm asked by them about gender I'm already telling people 'Oh it'll be another boy' and laughing - to cover myself if it IS; it's like I'm already laying the foundations to cover up my disappointment. I'm dreading all the 'ooh I bet you're hoping it's a girl' type comments when more people know about it, as then I'll have to lie to even more people! How can I get over this?! It won't be the end of my world if it's another boy (and of course it will be cheaper as I still have everything from the last one) - but I think this may be our last baby so I desperately want a girl and literally feel like I can't tell anyone incase it's not, like it's some sort of shameful secret.
