Re: Pressure to have a baby girl

I have honestly NEVER met a man or woman who was TRULY disappointed with the fact they ended up having a healthry baby boy or girl regardless of what they thought they 'wanted' .........

Please don't let this stress you out Chat Icon

Okay, this is going to get me flamed... I know it.... but I just had to comment... no one would tell you if they were TRULEY dissapointed, because it is so frowned upon in society, and it is an emotion you are not allowed to have. The truth is when I found out I was having my 4th boy... it hurt. This will be my last child and the thought of NEVER having a girl.... well... its hard for me to deal with. Of course, I realise how truly blessed I am to be able to have 4 healthy dc at all... and OF COURSE we all want a healthy DC... that comes first. But, the heart wants what the heart wants... and my heart wanted a DD.... I am not dissapointed in having a healthy DS, but I am sad that I will not have a healthy dd.... and while I will not pressure my DIL to have dd... so I OBVIOUSLY know it is not in her control, I have to be honest, I hope at least ONE of my ds have a dd. I don't know.

ETA: I only responded to this because I know gender sissapointment is a very real thing and I don't want anyone to feel like they are alone in these feelings. I am really not trying to stir up anything.

Tell her she can blame her son if its a boy since he is the one that determines the sex Chat Icon
