I feel embarrassed to even post this here and I hope that nobody will rip my head off, but I found out yesterday that we are having a boy and I admit to feeling a sense of disappointment, even of loss. This is only our first baby and we plan to have two, so I hopefully have another chance for a little girl, but I never imagined myself being the mother of a boy and I'm finding it quite hard to come to terms with.
I am happy and thankful that he is healthy and that we were even able to get pregnant at all, but am just disappointed that he is a he. DH is happy that it's a boy and he's quite offended that I am disappointed. He asked me what was so wrong with boys and it was very hard to answer! I don't think I even have an answer and I know in my head that I'm being silly, but my heart was set on a little girl.
Has anyone else felt this? And will I feel better after I let it sink in? I feel totally deflated now. Please tell me what is great about little boys to warm me up to the idea!
