Wanting a baby girl so bad it hurts--advice?
Hello--I am hoping someone has experienced some of the same feelings I am experiencing. I would like some advice about how to deal with a great longing for a baby girl. I have 3 healthy and rambuncious boys (ages 5, 3, and 1). Although I dearly love my boys, I guess I have always wanted a girl. The past year I have been dealing with these feelings and thought I had come to terms with them. Recently the hormones in my BC made my body feel pregnant and now I am back to square one with all the feelings of sadness and loss. My head tells me to just get over it, but my heart won't. It sounds silly writing all this down, but has anyone else been at this place? Will I always feel this way? DH is very supportive and understanding. He is open to trying again, but I am not sure. However, DH has 2 grown daughters, so having a girl is not such an issue for him.
I know I should just be thankful for 1) having children, and 2) having healthy children--please understand I realize this. I just need to hear how other people have dealt with wanting a girl--or a boy--so bad it hurts.
Thanks for your responses.
