Quoting veggiehugger:" First off, I'm so grateful for this pregnancy and know I will love my child whether it's a boy or a girl. ... [snip!] ... a boy and that my reaction will be bad.... Is this irrational? I feel like such a terrible person when I think about it.
With my first pregnancy i wouldnt even accept the thought of a boy and went as far as to pick out girl clothes around 14 weeks. I did end up having a girl. With this pregnancy I was even more worried about the thought of having a boy. I had always imagined having two little girls, so a boy was just not an option. About a week before my gender revealing sono something happened and I decided I should pick out some boy names and two days before the sono I was convinced I was having a boy (but still hoping and praying for a girl) the ultrasound was incredibly stressful as i waited for them to tell me the sex. "its definitely a little boy!" all i could say was okay and force a smile. Now i am about 26 weeks and I am completely happy with having a boy, and i think part of it is because of how excited my husband is to have a son. I remember being in tears at the thought of a boy. dont feel bad about it, it happens to all of us and as long as you accept it before the little bundle of joy comes your a great mommy!
