It's a girlie!
I just found out that I'll be having a girl in October, which is great news, but I was sorta hoping for a boy. All the blueish stuff I've started to knit in an effort to convince bub to be a boy is gonna have to be overdyed with red to make them purplish colours! But oh well! I can't be too disappointed, everything looks great on the scan, so at this stage she's looking healthy which is all one could hope for really!

DD is thrilled she's getting a sister though and at least i won't have to buy new clothes for the little one.

Just wanted to update everyone is all...

Congratulations! I have a sister, and it's just the two of us. I can't imagine having had a brother (although I do have a son, and I absolutely adore him).

Congratulations! I know exactly how you feel - I was sort of hoping for a boy the second time, but now I couldn't imagine it any other way.

Congratulations!! And I agree with Jan - girls are more fun to knit for! I knit for my girls all the time, but have only managed a sweater for my son - and I never even put the thing together at that - (brown homespun makes icky sweaters !) And I love blue on girls!

Congtatulations!!

I have a brother and a sister and I get along waaaaayyy better with my brother than my sister.

I have 2 boys and 2 girls. The girls always wanted/want to wear boy clothes... they don't do "girly."

yeah, I have a brother and he is like my best friend. And I guess I have a terribly weird reason for wanting a boy really... I seem to be under the misguided impression that it will be the only man in my life that will be there forever, that i can tell what to do, etc

But I suppose that is an awful lot of pressure to have put on the little tyke if he did come along - maybe that's why I got another girl, it was too scared to be a boy! LOL!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes - she's kicking up a storm in there, I think she can't wait to come out and play.
