Straight up...

I’m not going to lie to you. I want a girl. I want a girl BADLY.

Tomorrow, I will find out if we are going to ever be blessed with a princess or not. At 11:00 EST, I have a 3D ultrasound scheduled, wherein I will pay $125.00 for someone to do a five minute ultrasound and say the words, “It’s a insert gender here!”

It’s no secret that I have wanted a girl since I knew the difference between boys and girls, probably when I was 3 years old. I just feel that I am MEANT to have a daughter. When strangers ask, “So you want a girl this time?”, assuming this because I already have two boys, my answer is a resounding, “YES! OF COURSE!!!”

When expecting their first child, most pregnant moms state, “I just want a healthy baby.” When having their second child, most pregnant moms are a little more honest: “I really want a girl/boy, but health is most important.” By the time you have your third child, if the first two are of the same sex, you tend to be even MORE honest, “Yes. I definitely want a boy/girl this time. With every ounce of my being, I want a boy/girl.” Some will end with “But of course, health is most important.” See, this is where I get confused.

Do women say the “health disclaimer” because of embarrassment? OF COURSE we all want healthy babies. It’s ridiculous. You’re not going to hear a mom of even 10 boys, who is pregnant with her 11th child say, “I want a girl desperately. I don’t care if she is sick, deformed and handicapped, I just want a girl. Keep your healthy boy, I want a girl, healthy or not!” No one wants that. So why do we feel the need to use the health disclaimer???

So today, the day before my 3D ultrasound, I am going to be straight up…I want a girl. I want a girl badly. I want a HEALTHY girl. Damn…I did it. I used the disclaimer.

Think Pink for me will ya? I could use all the help I can get. Pin It
