The first few weeks of my pregnancy, I was obsessed with the idea of having a girl. I googled whether there was really a correlation with the location of the yolk sac on the first ultrasound and the sex of the baby (verdict: maaaaybe?). I looked at the Chinese calendar and did all kinds of other research, hoping the answer would be that I was having a girl. It’s not that I didn’t want a boy, it’s that I grew up in a family of almost all girls so little boys were outside of my comfort zone.
But as my pregnancy progressed, I began to feel more like I was having a boy and before long, I was head over heels in love with the idea of having a son. And from the day we found out it was a boy until now (and I assume for a long time yet to come), I have been so tremendously glad that we had a boy. Someday I would still love to have a daughter, but for me, for now, having a boy has been just perfect.

Why are you glad you had a boy or a girl?
