My friend was the same way when she found out she was having another boy. She was devastated for about a week or 2, then she became happy he's healthy. Now she's excited.



Give it time, and allow yourself to be disappointed and upset.

Why does this have to be your last baby?

lol it's normal to be upset. Had my daughter not been a girl I would have been upset also. It's very possible that todays tech could be completely wrong. Can you schedule a u/s youself?

Just try to remember, that God gave you little boys for a reason! Maybe they made a mistake. It could happen. But, above all, just be glad the baby is healthy! Good luck!!

I know my feelings are intense right now.. I just found out two hours ago.. And I am trying to think of all of the positives I really am. I just feel awful even feeling like this. I was so excited to find out I was having a boy last time. But then I think I am going to be in a house full of boys the rest of my life, I want to go nuts now, now add another one.
My husband has had two "serious" talks with me as if we don't have to have this baby if this isn't what I don't want. That isn't it at all.. I will love this baby regardless, we tried for this baby, this baby was a miracle. I guess I'd like more support from him..so I came on here.

The same exact thing happened to me. I SWORE this baby was a girl. The symptoms were identical to my pregnancy with my daughter (and complete opposite of the pregnancy with my first son). My gut said girl. I had a scan done at 16 weeks, the tech checked 4 times and all 4 times said girl. At my 20 week scan they checked and lo and behold there was a big old p***s staring me in the face.



At first I was upset. I was really excited about having another little girl, but once the shock wore off I got really excited, and now I'm thrilled to be having another boy.

My husband didn't even want another baby but he compromised one more. He has a child with someone else, although she isnt in our lives full time, financially we will have three children and that is enough for our family.

I have a redo of last weeks ultrasound because baby wasn't very cooperative for photos, the tech said we could come back for free to get better shots.
We have that next Wednesday and that one was in 3D
We had my sons 3D at 16 weeks also and he was VERY obvious, we saw his the sickles and everything.. Today we saw a nub, but it was in 2D so there wasn't much to it

Honestly I didn't even want to find out the gender going into the pregnancy.. But then at my six week ultrasound the baby was on the left side (according to Ramzis theory that means girls) .. Then at my thirteen week Scan the tech got a great shot and asked if I wanted to know what she thought.. So I figured I already knew subconsciously what the baby was.. Why not do a 3D gender scan and it just so happened to be the week our family was in town for Thanksgiving (we live out of state).
Now I am wishing I had stuck to my original plan.. I was just in over my head excited thinking it was a girl. I haven't even thought of a boys name.. Everything boy is just so blah to me from the bedrooms to the clothing. I was so looking forward to something different.
I know my feelings will change after time, but I have my husband in my ear telling me he doesn't want me to regret this decision years down the road.

I understand. I was really excited to be able to do bows and dresses again. Boys don't have quite as many options, but I'm excited about getting to match my boys for holidays and stuff (lame, I know, but still fun, lol).

It's still early, it could still be a girl.



HOWEVER, you know how happy and thrilled I am with 4 boys and I had wanted a girl since I was pregnant with my FIRST! I don't even want a girl anymore (good thing because I'm fixed anyway). I love having all boys, I promise you. There's something so sweet about being a mom to all boys! Promise!!

We have the redo next Wednesday, but mentally I am preparing myself that it's a boy.
I'm just so very confused as to what we ALL saw last week, I mean the ultrasound was an hour long, we got a photo of a girl shot.
I remember you were disappointed you didn't get a girl, it is so crazy out of four babies you got blessed with all boys! I keep telling myself God wanted me to have all boys for a reason..
Today I feel much better about everything, yesterday I was completely taken off guard and I feel like I went through a grieving period.. We were actually told we were having a girl, I almost felt like I had lost my baby all together.
But now I keep reminding myself of all of the positives, and I really do love having my mamas boy. I did wake up in the middle of the night so upset thinking about never having a little girl, I never thought I cared this much.. How did you get over the reality of it I guess?

Honestly, when I saw Jackson and Zackory (after birth of course) I fell in love with them instantly and never wanted a girl again. I felt complete and haven't felt like anything was missing since then. It sounds cheesy I know, but that's seriously how it happened.
