My wife and I are due our third child in August. We went for a routine scan yesterday to make sure the baby was developing ok, and it was, everything perfect, they even do a test on the heart where the scan can distinguish between oxygenated and deoxygenated blood, all very cool. Then we asked the lady performing the scan if she could tell gender, so she checked and she was 90% certain it was a girl, and my wife was delighted. This will be our last child ( we are both in our late thirties) and she was hoping she would finally get to have a daughter. I was hoping it would be a boy as we have two boys already and at least he would have big brothers and share their toys where as a girl would never have any sisters or even any female cousins of the same age. I asked the lady to check again as my wife was planning on buying a pink pram on the way home if we got this result and I wanted to be sure before we bought something non-returnable, and on the second pass it turned out to be definately a boy. My wife is quite disappointed but happy the baby was healthy and developing well. I was happy to see it was a boy, but had the good sense to keep that to myself, and although I am pleased it is a boy, I feel sorry for my wife as she wanted a girl and wont be going out shopping for pink now. We also only had girl names we liked, havent agreed on a boy name for this one yet

Not at all, each child is a gift. Congratulations to you both!

Not at all. For a name, I suggest Agamemnon.

Congratulations!! I second Agamemnon, not enough of them about :-)

Just becuase it's a boy doesn't mean your wife can't dress him in pink
At the end of the day I have a boy and a girl and they are both cool in different ways. I can understand your wife wanting a daughter to go shopping with though.

I doubt I would get away with Agamemnon, although I had my wife agreeing to Freya for a girl so

I'd say name him "Sue" so your wife can still have that daughter she's always wanted.

A boy named Sue? I wonder if he could somehow "Cash" in on it.

No nothing wrong at all. If the impending birth of a child that seems healthy is not the happiest moment in anyone's life, I can't imagine what else could be! (well, actually I can, but that's in the area of recovery from disease).

Congratulations. As the Dad of a spina bifida child,
all I ever wanted 'next' were healthy kids ! (The others
were all fine).

The force is in balance – this wargamer has three daughters.

War Minister Crittumbo says Sholo is a cool name
I how ever vote for Angus!
Though Angus Agamemnon has a certain ring to it!
