I could use a little support. We just found out we are having a baby boy. And I am beyond freaking out. I am so nervous. I am excited and happy that everything looks like the baby is healthy, but I am just really nervous about the boy aspect. I never felt like this when I was pregnant with my daughter. I am so worried about the societal expectations. I feel like for the most part all of my AP ways were accepted by family and society as a whole because I had a little girl. But I am really nervous about how people are going to react to a boy. It seems like the pressure for boys to be tough, and independent is so strong I am just nervous about the pressures. I know they won't change how I parent, but I also worry I might flip out on someone and I don't want to model that behavior to my children. I'm also really nervous about the relationship with a little boy. I have such a strong bond with my daughter. I worry about my relationship with a boy. My husband doesn't have a good relationship with his mom, she's a little nuts. But I just worry about having the same thing happen with this child. Anyone have any wonderful mom experiences to share about being AP with their little boys and what their relationships are like?
