My little man arrived just a couple of days ago and I am head over heals, utterly in love with him.
I have a photo of me and my 3 boys and it makes me burst with pride, I can't put into words how happy I am (and obviously hormonal haha!)
I juts keeping thinking how strange it is that I thought I wanted a girl when he is so utterly perfect and can not for a second imagine that him being a girl could make me a single ounce happier.
I wish I had never found out I was having a boy, I feel like I spent months thinking I wouldn't have this level of happiness and I am just bowled ove with love for him.
Honestly, I wish they could bottle up that moment your baby is born and handed to you as its the most amazing feeling in the world
I wanted to post this as during my pregnancy there were quite a few of us coming to terms with our last pregnancy and knowing we'd never have the daughters we'd always wanted. Who knows, I say I regret finding out but maybe it helped make ds3's birth so positive?? I know some of us looked for inspiration for those that had managed to rise above gender disappointment so I just hope this post helps some one. When I read through my first few posts here I don't recognise those feelings of desperation...I'm just so happy with how things have turned out. We didn't tell anyone ds3 was a boy whilst I was pg and I'm glad we didn't as I find no one dares to say "never mind" once your little one is here, although in the final weeks I did find peoples comments of hoping I'd have a girl, frustrating by I guess totally expected.
Right now, I'm struggling with accepting I will never go through this baby-moon period ever again...I truly feel blessed to have been lucky enough to have this amazing time of my life 3 x over, my "baby-making" years have to have been the happiest of my life and I can't imagine anything can top this.
So, just want to wish you all the best with coming to terms with what ever family unit you end up with...the 2 quotes that got me through the last 9 months were "don't waste time on what could've been" and "happiness is not having what you want but wanting what you have" so true and I am one happy bunny!
Proud mummy of 2 wonderful boys and now a 3rd one one the way
