Congratulations on your new little one. I know how you feel and so do most of the ladies on this board. You are not selfish just experiencing GENDER DESIRE. I had terrible gd when I found out we were having DS3. I really thought we were done with that 3rd pregnancy and felt so distraught, depressed, hopeless that we were having another boy. Once he was born, it was love at first site too. However, even in the hospital, I thought about how we can do this again. Crazy horomones lol.
Why couldnt I be happy with my son? Should I try again? Should I just be grateful? Help!!
I'm sure you are happy with your son. If you're like me, you just wish he came with a sister too. To answer your question, yes you should be grateful (an you sound like you are). I keep telling myself I'm thankful for my healthy boys (it helps keep me in check sometimes). Tying again? Give yourself a little time to make this decision. Some people say you shouldn't have another if you only want a certain gender. I don't know if that's true or not. I can tell myself over and over that I'll be okay if we have a 4th boy but will I really? We're not going to ttc for at least a year so I still have some time to think things over. Although I think the possibility of having a 4th baby is enough to keep my hope alive and maybe that's all you need right now.
Hope this helps alittle. Realize you're not alone. Hugs
