We already have an adorable, smart, funny and intelligent little girl and are desperate for a little boy this time round. I know DH was slightly disappointed when our daughter was born as he wanted a son, and I know he will be disappointed again if we have another daughter. We only plan on having 2 kids and so I also want a little son and will be disappointed if they tell me it's a girl. I hate feeling like this but can't help it. I know that once the baby arrives we will love it whatever the gender. Additionally in Asian families, boys are celebrated whereas when girls are born people almost give their condolences. It's all to do with boys carrying on the family name and girls will eventually get married and leave the family home. When my little daughter was born, the first thing my mum said to me was "never mind I had a girl first as well" - DH was livid with her. MIL is bit more relaxed but secretly I know she is also praying for a first grandson. I feel all this pressure is causing more me more anxiety as the big day approaches, when I should be relaxing and resting. Thanks for reading this rant.
