I wouldn't trade any of my boys for all the girls in the world but it doesn't stop me feeling sad for what might have been. As an aside, three boys are awesome
    I definitely agree that 3 boys is awesome, I adore watching my boys grow up together, they're best buds.

    I hope the ache goes away one day, it has certainly eased off a bit since we found out DS3 was a boy but I still get a pang every time someone announces they're having a girl, or when I walk through the baby girl sections at the shops... I'd love to not feel that every time!

    We had 2 boys. Both times my DH had really wanted a girl. I know if we had a 3rd, I think both of us would be hoping for a girl, it be our last and it be nice to help even out the household.

    During the time my DH did become a little withdrawn, but he became excited again once we started talking names and talking about whether he would look like him or me, and he cane around.
    In the end I was just happy I was having a baby.

    I so agree! I find the girls department hard to walk through and lately I've been taking more notice of families that have both genders and it still stings a bit. Mind you I have drama queen nieces who make me feel slightly better about not having a daughter 😜

    I haven't gone through gender disappointment. With DD2 I thought for sure she was a boy. But I love my two girls especially as they are so close in age.

    if we go back for a third I really hope it'll be a boy just so I can have both and know my family is complete. I think I will have a prang of disappointment if bub 3 is a girl only because I won't go back for a forth.

    im sure your hubby will be excited either way
