SO and I found out that we're having a girl, after the scan I was like Yay! I get to buy pink stuff this time!
I went shopping the other day and there is like 5X more girl stuff than boys stuff and I just ended up feeling overwhelmed, buying some frilly socks and getting the hell out of there lol
I had this sudden realization that I dont know what to DO with a girl... I have tons of nephews and two godsons plus my own boy but this is the first girl for this generation on my side and the first for three generations on SO's side and I've never actually dealt with a girl younger than 5.
I know I'm being irrational but after all this time wanting a girl I feel like I'm scared to have her.

It's the same. Only difference is you wipe front to back.
But I will say, I only ever got peed on by my daughter. Never my son.

I got peed on by my son a lot but only once by my daughter. I love dressing my daughter up.

Relax! Don't stress over it so much. It's not good for you or the baby. Just keep in mind: you're going to have a blast with your little girl. I know I do with mine!
