The Choice between a Boy or Girl
Submitted by sclj116310
After I had my first son and got pregnant again I was sure (and wishing) it to be a girl. I thought I couldn't love another boy too. Then the doctor scheduled a routine ultrasound and I was just going back and forth in my head about how I might react if it was a girl or a boy. I was sure I would be so disappointed. So, I go to my ultrasound and the lady asks me "do you want to know the gender?" I said, "yes!". She says "congratulations you are having a little boy!".
Then I said "are you sure?" She pointed to his proof on the screen. My eyes filled with tears. I was so disappointed. As we walked out of the medical center, I thought to myself, hey, I don't have much baby shopping to do (I had tons of stuff left over from my first son). I just told myself that I wasn't ready for a girl because they are high maintenance. A few months later I gave birth and modern technology proved itself once again. I had a baby boy.
I was not disappointed with him at all. I loved him. I loved him a lot more than I thought I could or would. 7 months later, if I had a choice when I was pregnant with my second son, between him or a girl, I would definitely choose him. I wouldn't even have to think about it.
