    Well Ladies, we had another Ultrasound today.

    And these babies showed everything for the cameras.

    We're having 2 baby boys. Heartbeats are synchronized at 154 bpm.

    I'm not going to lie... We were all very sad that we won't have at least one daughter. And I feel immense guilt over it. but it physically hurt to realize that I will never have a daughter. That I won't be able to pass on the one tradition that my family has (mn for first born daughters), that my in-laws get what they want (boys.)

    I know that I will love these boys as much as I love our son, but its more of a missing piece than anything else. I hope this makes sense. I feel so selfish and guilty....

    But, we're still doing the big gender reveal with my family this weekend. And I did some retail therapy...that helps.

    Greci; Do not feel guilty. You're grieving that you won't have a girl, that is perfectly understandable. I would've done the same if I didn't have my girl(s), there's nothing wrong with that at all. Of course you will love your boys and when they're here you wouldn't want to trade them for a girl, but the sense of loss at not having a daughter is something you should allow yourself to feel now. My husband said (after I gave birth to my daughter) that he was relieved we had a girl the first time as he didn't have to worry about my longing for a little girl with every pregnancy. I'm glad you did some retail therapy! You should treat yourself a lot now, do girlie stuff. And I'm sure your two little boys will be absolutely precious! I cast my vote for Sebastian and Archer, or Griffin and Archer (they would make a smashing threesome!).

    Grecianern - same here, was SO disappointed when I found out our first wasn't a girl. We had a girl name picked out that was perfect and we were referring to the baby as 'her.' Just like saracita said, I was sad about not having a girl, but not sad I had my boy of course! Boys are so so surprisingly cuddly - mine is 3 and asks to snuggle with me all the time. I totally get how you feel though. I felt tearful about it for a while. This is why I feel if you really have a strong wish for 1 gender that you need to find out at the ultrasound to adjust your expectations in case it doesn't turn out the way you want. That way you are 100% happy at the birth with no thought in your head about how much you had wanted X.

    PS - Griffin is #1 on my list too if it's a boy this time around. It's about all I got but my husband isn't 100% on board yet. We will find out in just over a week whether we are fighting over a girl name (Amelia vs Violet) or a boy name (Griffin vs Wyatt).

    thanks Ladies. I'm still disappointed in not having a daughter, but we keep joking that I am now 3/4 of the way to my Olympic 4-man relay swim team in 2032!

    It was funny, we went through names again this weekend and found out that Griffin isn't sitting too well with us, and that Archer/Asher are very confusing for some of my family. But we've added to the list, which is always helpful.

    Their favorites: Weston, Keagan and Landon.

    We've got time, and we'll see. My friends keep joking that I can try for #4 later. Um, no. We're too old for that.

    Their is a little confusion over one of the genders... Baby B, based on the picture. but their heartbeats are the same at 154bpm. We'll get another confirmation at the Anatomy Scan on 9/6, but I'm still guessing that they are both boys.

    Our son is pretty happy with 2 brothers. And that's really important.
