Re: gender disappointment?
I just wanted to give you a hug and tell you I get it. This is #4 (and final) for us and we were ALL hoping for another boy to even things out and give DS a brother. My MIL made it very clear that THEY were hoping for a boy, my parents were hoping for a boy...
And it's another girl. I knew it was from early on. This is the first time I've gotten it right. I kept warning DS to just assume it's a girl until proven otherwise but he was still disappointed at the u/s. It took him a few days to come around and it broke my heart. I felt like I failed him.
It's not that I'm NOT excited to have another girl, I'm just sad I'll never have another son.
