US tomorrow- nervous

OK ladies, I have my ultrasound tomorrow and I am so nervous. Let me tell you why.
This is my third and we feel certain last child. I have two boys who are the best and I feel this strong yearning to have a daughter. I have been praying that this baby is a girl. I did not have a good relationship with my Mother and so I just want to have that with a daughter of my own. I am nervous because I don't want to be disappointed if they tell me it is a boy. I don't want to feel that way towards my own baby. I know that if it is a boy that it is part of God's plan. Just like it is if it is a girl. Has anyone else felt this way? Or am I just being self-fish. Ugg I don't want to feel this way.
Any advice???

Healthy is all that matters. Boy or girl is just icing on the cake, IMO.
We *so* wanted a girl with DS, but by the time they got through all the parts, checking them off as healthy and they told us he was a he, we couldn't have been any happier with a boy.
With the next baby we have, I don't even want to know the sex, because it just doesn't matter to me. All I hope for is healthy.
I hope you won't feel disappointed with another boy, if you're blessed with one! Sometimes I just marvel that I have a son! I was SO sure I was having a girl, I had dreams about my little girl and everything!! But we're blessed he's healthy, many mom's wish for such things.

Ah Kim, I'll be praying for you! Babies are blessings regardless, and you already know that! Just pray for a peace, regardless of what you find out!

Thanks and yes I know they are wonderful blessings and I really think that I will be happy with a boy but disappointed that it is not a girl. KWIM?
I did not mention that I was praying for a healthy baby in my first post- we have been from the moment we found out we were pregnant again- that to me is just goes without saying. So I really don't want people to think that I am going to resent a boy if it is another boy- besides isnt there a sayin that says somthing about There is a special place in heaven for a mother of three boys

I didn't get the idea that you wouldn't be happy with a healthy baby either way.
I think it is natural to hope for a girl after 2 boys. But maybe you were meant to raise some good men in this world? Who knows what the plan is for you!!
There sure should be a special place in heaven for mom's of 3 boys.
Be sure to let us know tomorrow! I'll have my fingers crossed for this baby to be a healthy baby girl!

Mama! I was you only backwards! I have 2 beautiful little girls and am pregnant with our third and most likely last baby as well. I was DESPERATE to have a boy. I'm not kidding either...Plus a lot of things made me think I was having a boy. My doctor knew I wanted a boy...all our family wanted a boy....and then my Big U/S..."Um, it's, um....it's....well, thats a vagina" SHOCKED!!!! I knew he was right though, I'd seen those little lines on other ultrasounds and knew what they were before he acually told me. And you know what, I am SO excited to be having another girl now. My little girls are all going to be 2 years apart and SISTERS! How lucky for them. So I'm not going to ever get to have that little boy I dreamed of....well that wasn't Gods plan I guess. NO biggie!

Believe me, if you find out you're having another boy...it may take a few, but you'll be happy in the end! No matter what you acually have it just feels great.(((HUGS)))
