I'm a young expectant mother, newly married and just moved out of my mother's house. As if the stress of all of that wasn't enough, I had high hopes for a girl. Someone I could relate to, someone I could talk to about things, watch chick flicks with and everything my mum and I share. I had a deep feeling inside of me (maybe put there with thanks to my mother, but not in a mean way) that it was a boy as soon as I found out I was pregnant. I had to wait until 24 weeks to find out, and I told the ultrasound tech I didn't want to know, I wanted my husband to tell me. So as she was looking for it my husband watched intently, and I just looked at his face. He wanted a girl just like me, and I could see the sadness just wash over his face when the tech found the sex, and his mothers face as well, who also wanted a girl. As soon as they all left I didn't even have to ask him, I just said "It's a boy. I already know." and he nodded in agreement. That little tic tac on the print outs they gave us couldn't lie. I poked fun, making little jokes about just "Cutting it off" , in a joking manner of course. When I got home though I cried the entire night. And the next day. And I still cry to this day every now and then because the stress is just so much. My marriage is less than ideal, he and I are both young so we are still learning how to cope, and my financial stress on top of the stress of trying to figure out how I'm going to deal with having another boy. I try to talk to him about these things as well, but he just asks me "Really? You're REALLY this upset that it's a boy? That's messed up." And it makes me feel ten times worse. His mother isn't of any help either, she really wanted a granddaughter for a first grandchild. My mother is a little more...hardened I guess you could say? So it's a little hard to talk to her as well. It's just getting harder as I progress through this pregnancy. I find myself crying at least once a day. I will probably bring up my depression at my next appointment, next week, but until then does anyone have any words of wisdom for me? I would really appreciate anything you have to offer. Thankyou.
