I would have a serious talk with him to find out to what
extent his GD would be if this next baby was a boy. If your OH is serious when he says he only
wants girls, maybe HT or adoption (if you can swing either) might be best. Or be one and done (?). The other thing I can think of is how many
kids you want. Would he (and you) be
willing to go for three if this baby is a boy, to try for another girl. It’s a matter of what he wants/doesn’t want. Does he want 2 girls? Or does he just not want boys? This can also help you decide.
Point out cute little boys in the malls, parks, etc. Point out how they are just as cute as girls. And caution him that many of the qualities he thinks he doesn't want in a boy (love of sports, roughness, etc) can very well show up in girls. Find out the root of why he only wants a daughter (relationship with his dad, etc). Talking about these things may help...
After being on this board over two years, I will say I am
genuinely happy for him that he did get at least one of his DG. I have a good friend who is suffering from GD
(and perhaps EGD). He has two boys,
always wanted a daughter, and his wife went out and had Essure done. He is my daughter’s God Father, and he always
says how she is the only thing close to a daughter that he will have. So again, I am happy for you and OH that you
did at least get the DG for one child.
Its tough, I know.
Hang in there, and good luck!
