You have four sons; do you play the genetic lottery again, hoping to finally get a girl this time? One couple took their chances, and found out they were having another boy. What else can you do but be grateful for a healthy baby -- and then stage a totally cheeky pregnancy announcement?

Have you ever experienced gender disappointment?

I'm super worried about gender disappointment this time. I want a little boy so badly, and each of my other pregnancies I got the gender I wanted, but this time I feel I won't get that and I'm worried I'll be selfish and disappointed instead of excited for a healthy girl.

I can totally understand, Cheyenne!  I have three boys myself so I know what it feels like to have a bit of gender disappointment.  I was so close to just not finding out with my third because I didn't want to have any of those feelings.  However, we found out and I must say that I wasn't nearly as disappointed as I worried I would be.  

I'm excited to find out what you'll be having!  Be sure to update us when you know!
