    I just found out today that I'm having another boy. I knew it, and I just had this gut feeling that it was another boy. It was confirmed via ultrasound and I'm so gutted.

    My husband and I can only financially afford to have two children, so this one is our last. I'm so sad that I'll never had a daughter and nobody around me seems to understand or show any sympathy. I suppose they think I'm being ridiculous :(

    Sorry you didn't hear girl.
    I felt the same when I found out with my DS2. I wasn't sad that he was a boy cause I love boys it was just that we only wanted two kids and I had really hoped for at least one of each.
    We decided to have another baby and I'm 7 weeks 4 days, and hoping this one is a girl cause its our absolute last.
    You'll love your new little guy to pieces but I guess that feeling would never really go away. :hugs:

    Sorry you didn't hear girl honey, you're not being ridiculous, although you love your baby, there's a small grieving process going on for the daughter you won't have. At least it was for me, I definitely grieved over this little girl I'd created in my head, and I was sad I wouldn't get to meet her, but I was also over the moon that my baby looked healthy and happy, gender disappointment can be a very difficult times with many conflicting emotions :hugs:

    If it means anything at all I know exactly how you feel. I had a sixteen week scan and they said boy. This is my third and final it will make three boys :(. I am getting to old to have more children after this. It's so depressing and a feeling I might never shake as well. I'm sorry for what your feeling. Feel free to vent to me because I feel the same exact way. I feel cheated :(. I know I will love this baby. God forgive me for saying this but if someone said you will have a third boy I wouldn't have had more children at all.
