pregnant with fourth boy! Mourning the girl I was hoping for.

I found out yesterday that we are pregnant with our fourth boy. I LOVE my boys and love being a boy mom, but I have ALWAYS dreamed of having a little girl. Each time I find out its a boy it has gotten harder and harder not to feel sad. This time I am having a hard time mourning the little girl I thought SURELY was on her way. I know I am blessed to be able to have children, and so many others are still wishing for that, and I know that boys are so wonderful and special too, which makes me feel guilt for being so sad. Does anyone have anything to help me feel better? Or maybe just boy moms who can relate to these feelings?

My best friend always wanted a girl... she gave birth to 3 boys (now 9, 7, and 5). About a year ago she adopted a teenage girl out of foster care. ♥

Personally speaking... I never wanted a girl. The fact that my first pregnancy was TWIN girls... is my personal proof that God has an awesome sense of humor and gives us what we need over what we think we want. lol

I am just a boy mom...but I never really had my heart set on either gender. I know another gal who was determined to have a girl...5 boys later, she decided to adopt.
