    I would really like a girl this time. I have 3 gorgeous boys and I wouldnt change any of them. We have took the risk and went for our last baby. I am really hoping for a girl this time. But in saying that I knew it was a risk so would be just as happy with another boy. Im well looked after by my boys so another wouldnt be all that bad. I just want the change.
    I have a confession, I have been buying the old girl clothes when I see them on sale. Im hoping they will be used by me. If not Im sure I will know someone who will have a girl who could use them.
    My youngest sister is pregnant too and is about 10 weeks aswell. This will be her first. We have7 boys between me and my other two sisters. I know that I will get another boy and my sister will have a girl haha!!! Might have to swap haha...joking.
    I went for a the early sexing scan with all my pregnancies and would like to do it again this time around. Not sure how I will feel if it is another boy until it happens I suppose. Im just think pink vibes...... I do hate feeling this way i should feel blessed with whatever sex the baby is but I just cant help it.

    Sorry yes I always forget the tickers don't show in here. I did want a girl, but am having another boy. 35 weeks today. I've had some hard times but for the most part I am happy and now I'm used to the idea and feel I have bonded with a boy I wouldn't swap him.

    Wishing you luck! I too shopped for girl clothes for fun, mostly giving them away. But I saved one little dress I bought even before my first son was born...and was finally able to use it ten years later! :)

    Good luck! I know exactly how you feel as I have 4 boys and am now expecting our little girl. Anything is possible but I know how agonizing it is to wait and wonder and then when they tell you to either be in disbelief or disappointment. I will pray for you! :)

    those who finally got girls, did you do anything differently? I've just had my 4th boy 11 days ago, and I know that IF we had another, then another boy would be fine, because I'm so happy with my baby boy. He is perfect and most definitely who we were meant to have. But I am always interested to see if people 'just got lucky' or if they actively tried for a gender and got what they wanted.


    Good luck for your gender scan proud mummy

    I guess I was one of those that 'just got lucky'. We didn't do anything differently except I was charting, which I had not previously done with my boys. But we DTD two days before, the day before, the day of and the day after O so we didn't time anything. Not sure if I really believe in all that timing crap anyways.. I think its pretty much luck of the draw each time. I am thinking we got our chance because DH is older now (he was 35 when we conceived) and he has already produced 3 boys so maybe it was just his body changing.

    Thanks CountryMomma, I guess in a way I want there to be something I can do, but at the same time I want it to be a case of just getting lucky. Probably makes very little sense LOL
    I know, as well as I can with out charting, when I conceived my oldest 3. We only DTD the day I worked out to be O, going by my standard 28 day cycle at the time, with DS1. DS2 I used OPKs and DTD when I got the positive and that was it. DS3 was 3 days before O. DS4 I was charting and we DTD the day before and the day after O.
    DH is an older Dad anyway, he will be 45 next month. He has no other children so can't say if its something to do with his body changing. His family is very male dominated until you get to his generation, all his male cousins have only girls LOL

    Makes perfect sense. :) I tried the timing and the diet and all that jazz and never got a BFP so I just said what the hell and just DTD when I knew I was fertile and prayed everyday that this baby would be a girl. I don't know how religious you are or anything so I mean no offense but I'll tell you what I have never prayed so hard for anything in my life and if I wasn't a true believer before I am now..

    In response to doing something different for a different gender I did. I had 3 amazing little boys but really wanted a girl as well. I charted and dtd 4 days before O in shallow penetration only. I also drank a lot of cranberry juice. OH also gave up all alcohol. We went on to have a little girl two years ago. We decided to have another and tried the same thing and we are expecting another girl. Im not sure if the changes really did anything at all but I figured it couldnt hurt. I really hope you get to hear girl at your scan, but if it is a boy you will be just as blessed. Boys are awesome.
