Hi ladies!
I have my 20 week scan next week and I'm hoping baby is perfectly healthy and growing well.
Now whilst babies health is our number 1 priority we are going to find out the sex of the baby and both me and my DH are really hoping it's a boy!
Is that bad? Does anyone else feel like that?
I just know I'll be disappointed if they tell me it's a girl, but on the complete flip side I know neither of us will care once baby arrives and as long as baby is well that's all that matters at the end of the day.
I was just curious if anyone else was hoping their baby was going to be certain sex!
I'm hoping I'm not the only one that feels like this 😬😬😬
Please don't judge me 😫 I just want other people's take on this

Once that baby pops out you won't be disappointed. There was a mixup at my labour of DC2 and for 20 seconds everyone thought the new baby was a girl. The immense relief I had that "she" was ok just flooded me. At that moment I was so happy! It was only then I looked down and saw that "she" was infact "he". Cue surprise but still v happy!!

I have 3 daughters. I have always wanted a girl and after I had one I wanted more. I’m now pregnant with baby four. I’ve suffered from secondary infertility and 6 miscarriages so my head has definitely been wobbled as a previous poster so eloquently put it. More than anything I want a baby - but if I could choose - I’d choose a girl and I’m not at all ashamed to admit it. I’ve never found out though - it’s pretty amazing waiting for your husband to tell you the sex even if it took a while with #3 because ‘her bits were all swollen!”
