I'm not going to lie, I am beyond scared to be raising a little girl.
I guess I'm so used to my son and him being tougher than I picture girls being.
For those of you who have both boy and girls, how different was the change for you?
like, diaper changes, bathing.. etc.

I intend to raise them the same. Girls aren't delicate wimps. And this baby is far stronger and feistier than her big brothers were in utero, so I figure she'll be ruling the house and have him wrapped around her tiny fingers in no time.

As far as infants go, it's literally just a color change. You wipe the same areas, wash the same areas, etc.



Clothing, you just buy more dresses, tutus, bows, headbands. You get to dress her up. :D But that's really about it. They don't get different until they're older and you can't exactly prepare for that.

I went from having 3 boys to having a girl. Seriously the weirdest thing in the world for me. Changing her diaper for the first few months was :shock: I just expected to see a wiener every time I changed her. As far as being rough...well shes 3 and she beats the shit out of the boys who are 7, 9 and 11....shes such a damn tom boy

My four year old daughter is tougher than her 6 year old boy cousin. But, she loves dresses and bows lol. She's a tough girl, but also pretty girly at the same time. Definitely no more delicate than any other child. Lol

That's how I was...play with wild snakes in a party dress and beat up boys who disrespected me in middle school...



Hope she's just like me ;)

My weight problems were (and are) my own doing, not genetics. I just plan to get skinny and stay there after she comes so she never sees fat me and neve sees me feel awful about myself. I lost 30 pre pregnancy and felt great, just another 15-20 (plus baby weight, but so far that's 2 lbs)
