Lilli my advice would be don't do anything permanent unless you are 100% sure you will never want another, and now whilst u are feeling so low isn't really the best time to be making these kinds of decisions....... We decided after no 3 my hubby would have 'the snip', he bottled out at the last minute, and I'm so glad he did, I'm now on #6. I love having all these kids and like you I've yearned for a little girl. Devastated isn't the word I felt on my last pregnancy when we found out he was a boy, but he is so amazing I know why I was sent him, he honestly makes me smile everyday, he's so different from my other boys, loving and gentle and a proper mummy's boy. I know I will have GD again when they tell me this ones a boy ( which I'm 100% sure they will) but I know I'll get over it, i think it may hurt abit more this time tbh as I'd been reading up on swaying and wanted to give myself the best possible chance, I'd discussed it with hubby and we decided the next month we'd start trying and swaying,.....well that next month never came cos that's when I got my bfp!!!
Anyway back to the point, if u were to decide at a later date that u actually did want another baby regardless of gender u may not be able to have the procedure reversed or u may find u can't get pregnant at all, which would then be devastating! Please lilli think carefully, give yourself time and I'm sure whatever you decide will be what's best for you. X
