Hello everyone!!!

I went for my 20 week scan yesterday and found out that I am having a girl!!! Just what I wanted!!! Am so happy!

The pressure was on though so am relieved its over, everyone in my family wanted me to have a girl and everyone in my dp's family wanted a girl so I was under a significant amount of pressure to produce a girl!!

Job done anyway so wahey to me!!

Ah Congratulations!!!

Although you shouldn't have been feeling pressurised from anyone. Your families sound more than a bit hmm.

Any names chosen for your lil lady?

Why was it so important to everyone that it was a girl? Bit worrying!

Well no it wasnt like that, like they wouldnt have been devastated if it were a boy, its just my mum wanted a girl so she had 3 granddaughters to match her 3 grandsons.

My dp preferred a girl but would have been absolutely fine if it were a boy and my dp's mum wanted a girl cos she already has a grandson from one of her sons, she herself has 3 boys and there just isnt many females in the family, so you know it wasnt really bad pressure, but you know what its like, I would have felt like everyone would have been thinkin oh well, at least its healthy had it turned out to be a boy!

They certainly wouldnt have been angry if it had been a boy!!

Also my daughter wanted a sister!

The only person who wanted a boy was my son, he wanted a little brother, so hes a bit upset, but as I pointed out, I didnt want another little man, he is my one and only little man! He seemed to accept that!!

I'm calling her Brooke. grin
