    I have 3 boys and with number 3 I had to find out these at the 20w scan - I felt I needed that time to process it if he was a boy. I've learnt something important about gender disappointment on the hub - you don't wish that your child was another sex, you are just mourning the experiences you will miss out on.

    I think your feelings are valid and normal - please don't feel bad. Many ladies on here have been through the same thing.

    I have 4 boys, and I cried when I found out DS4 wasn't a girl, I felt really upset by it. Now I am fine, I am glad I have my 4 boys and wouldn't change them for the world, but it is normal to feel upset. My friend just found out that she is having girl number 4, she cried for 24 hours, she is ok now though.

    Not wanting to sounds ungrateful or selfish but I am worried that when we go for the 20 weeks scan if it's another girl that I will be disappointed. Please don't judge me as I know deep down that I would be happy to have another girl but I would love a little boy. Just needed to get it off my chest. Thanks

    This isn't true actually. Your odds of having a boy or girl stay around 50% with only slight variations. In fact, after 3 girls, a study has shown you're slightly more likely to have a boy.

    Thanks for that - really interesting! I don't generally accept things like that without questioning/researching them, but that's one I had assumed was true. It seems there isn't really any other research out there, but that one certainly refutes the idea.

    OP - You're not a bad person, or selfish or anything for feeling that way. You feel how you do, and that's fine. I have a daughter, and a son (so I'm told) due shortly. This is definitely our last bub. I thought I'd be disappointed at the scan if bub was a girl...and I think I would have been...but I wasn't happy/excited about having a boy like I thought I would be. I was actually a bit sad/disappointed that I wouldn't have any more girls. It's definitey, for me, about what I won't get to experience.

    That's interesting reading sunny bambino. I guess what will be will be. I have heard that when you have had 2 girls the chance of having another girl is increased but I hadn't heard about #4.
