Have any of you wished for a specific gender, only to be disappointed? What made you think differently or come around to accepting what your son/daughter? Now I know there are many women here that have suffered infertility and pregnancy loss, myself included. I know that a HEALTHY baby, either gender, was desired. I'd like to make this a pleasant, non-judgemental conversation please. I've read about women who have suffered depression because they did not give birth to the girl or boy they desired. It's my hope that maybe this thread will help in a therepuetic kind of way knowing there are other moms who felt the same way.
As for me, when I learned I was having a son I was estatic! I would have equally have been thrilled with a girl as well. A healthy baby was all I wanted.
