    I SOOOOOOOOOOOOO do!

    We all thought LO was a girl and hubby and I just called it Squiggle. I didn't mind what it was gonna be, but I'll admit that I did have it in my head that it was a girl.

    Anyhoo, so we're having a little boy and I'm so happy! :happydance:

    I just feel so much closer to the lil man in my bump - I can't wait to meet my baby boy. I sit at home in the evening trying to picture his little face and hoping that he'll be a little clone of daddy, and imagining what he'll look like when he's older. I just feel so maternal! My son will one day grow into a man and I'm so in love with him already!:cloud9:

    I felt alot closer to her when I knew she was a girl. I was 110% sure she was a boy previous to my 4D scan!

    Yes. I do, loads closer. :D It's like she's already here - Cause we don't have a nickname for her, we just call her by her name. So I think that's one reason why I feel closer to her. I just can't wait to hold her now. I'm getting giddy now i've only got 9 weeks left. :lol:

    I need a name and sex to feel closer I think, it makes it more real. But i have been rubbing bumb and talking to it. its still kicking daddy when I hug him so he is getting closer to.

    See I wonder...I have a yellow bump even though I wanted to find out before I had my scan. My OH really didnt though and the more I thought about it the more I thought it would be nice to wait. However, its is werid consitantly saying baby or she/he and not being able to use 'its' name. Ahhh well, only 7 weeks left to wait!

    Like Carries we left it yellow. I can imagine how it will help bond knowing the sex though as you can imagine your life a bit after the baby is born. I find it hard to relate to my moving living bump as a real baby, maybe knowing the sex would help?

    I do! Its so nice being able to call her a 'her' too rather than 'it'!
     
  14. I think it will definitely seem more real once we know. I will be able to call it by its name. Instead of referring to it as it, it will be he or she.

    Yes. And because I thought I was having a boy, I'm so thankful I can now bond with my little girl before she's here.

    totally. I love knowing that my little boy is in there and refering to him as "he" instead of it. I just love him that little bit more. :D
