I also got the statement of I hope its a boy.
It seemed strange to me why people would say this. Yes we already have a little girl but the perfect family isn't always one boy and one girl. You don't have to have one of each.
Don't get me wrong if bubba is a boy we would be over the moon but if bubba is a girl we would be equally as happy. I think that for Paige to have a little sister would be amazing. Just as amazing as her having a little brother. The fact that she will get to grow up with a sibling close in age is amazing in itself!
Surely it shouldn't matter the sex of the baby. All that matters is that bubba is healthy and growing well. And we are very thankful that he/she is doing well so far.
During the first few weeks the statement used to really annoy me and it still does to be honest. Fair enough if people think the baby will be a boy that's fine just don't say that your hoping its a boy because we already have a little girl. I'm hoping the baby is healthy and that's all you should hope too!
We honestly don't have a preferred sex and never did with Paige. Both me and Mark would love a boy or a girl for different reasons. A boy would be a different experience and it would mean that we get to do so much more shopping and go blue crazy. But a girl would mean that Paige has a sister close in age, something neither me or Mark had. It would also mean that we could reuse a lot of Paige's things which would save us a lot of money.
The sex of the baby was decided at conception, weeks and weeks ago. That's set in stone now although no one yet knows.
We probably will find out the gender if baby lets us. But we may still keep it a secret from everyone else, we aren't sure what we want to do yet. Although I have some pretty fun ideas on how to announce the sex if we do find out and decide to tell all.
Did you get statements on the sex of your baby?
