    Of course it's a girl! It couldn't not be.

    I actually cried when I read fake headlines about it being a girl a year ago (postpartum hormones) and made a post about how ridiculous I felt about that.

    What stings the most is how much MORE excited everyone is over a little princess. I mean, people were openly disappointed about her first being a prince! Imagine if she had a second boy? The media would openly express disappointment, as if it was a huge letdown. Don't tell me gender disappointment isn't externally influenced. (Sorry, feeling bitter.)

    I think she swayed. Remember how skinny she got before getting the BFP? I also bet she could influence gender based on diet- she has cooks and doctors to have all the resources for a fab sway! I say it's awesome! She has a terrible time in early pregnancy and she won't have to go at it again!

    Slightly bitter though. At least there are plenty of rich people who don't have the perfect pigeon pair we can console with! Gwen Stefani, Shakira, Elle Macpherson, Naomi Watts, Cate Blanchett, Sheryl Crowe, Amy Poehler, Melissa Joan Hart (Bless her heart- she has three boys!!), Usher, Russell Crowe, and of course Prince William's mum Princess Diana.

    A long list makes me feel better

    This is exactly why I hoped for a boy for them (plus I thought George would be less likely to be lonely with a brother).

    Oh, well.

    I think I read somewhere that she was eating steamed fish and vegs every night (maybe this site even?!) I totally think she would have had a lot of help on the diet front. I didn't think anyone was disappointed their first was a boy were they? Maybe a missed something? Seems very perfect, a boy then a girl, I was secretly hoping they had a boy just for some more boy families in the spotlight!

    Of course it's a girl. How could it not be. I was like a witch all day yesterday! I remember when she was pg on George and was so sick, I really commiserated with her as I had Hyperemesis on my two boys. I remember finding out my second DS was a boy and being like "OMG I have to do this again to try have a daughter!" I wasn't the only one either, my own family and my in laws have all been so verbal about how my wish for more children (mainly a daughter!) is selfish as my Hyperemesis takes control of everyone's lives

    Very upsetting that Kate got her PP, and my almost bitterness makes me feel awful! I hate feeling this way. DH was sat on the sofa with the boys last night and said how he can't wait for the days when he can sit down and watch football with them. I asked what would I do when the 3 of them do that and he goes "Sure go on the laptop or read a book" I got so upset that he has "his boys" and I am pegged to be forever left out in the cold. The birth of the Princess yesterday set me off so it didn't take much to upset me. I hate being so sensitive!!

    I do not think she swayed. I don't think that's how their minds work in that universe.

    Like I mentioned in another thread, I'm happy for them but I do feel a bit bitter whenever I see a young successful couple get a pigeon pair easily. I even go so far as to wonder sometimes if there is something "magic" that makes it happen that way. Like if you're blissfully happy and satisfied then your body somehow makes PP and then the rest of us are either all boys or all girls (but that is my inner green-eyed monster talking.)

    Hopper, with my two older boys my husband has always complained "you three are like a club and I am left out". So it can go a different way too.

    Someone said Kate smokes....so a girl makes sense, still feels unfair for those of us who diet for years, gain/lose tons of weight, and struggle with GD for ages.

    Always irks me when someone gets a boy and smokes...but I have known plenty of people who smoke and get boys.

    Are you my long lost twin sister? Do we have the same family? This is so spot on for me as well! I get hyperemesis with every pregnancy, I would vomit constantly. And SPD to cripple me. The first thing in my mind with both boy pregnancies: oh no I must go through this again for a girl! And my husband is now watching transformers downstairs with the boys and I'm cleaning upstairs (ok and occasionally looking on the laptop to check the forum ) We have to work so hard to 'even things out' and others just get it. I'm happy for Kate, I bet she was hoping for a girl. But somehow people with a PP are so smug!
