were you upset when you found out the sex of your baby?

I was upset when I found out I was having a boy after only having girls-so upset I cried...
Once the shock wore off I was fine.. but I know there has to be other women that felt this way? they wanted one sex and got the other..

  • i went through that. i wasnt upset-more shocked than anything. i thought for sure i was having a girl. so sure that i went and bought pink girlie stuff (it was my first pregnacy) and then i found out he was a boy and i cried. but im so happy that hes a boy. i wouldnt change him for the world. luckily my best friend was having a girl so she got all my girl stuff

  • I actually cried when I found out with my second that it was a boy. There are a lot of behavioral and emotional and ADHD problems in many of my hubby's family in boys. I was upset b/c I did not want to have a child that was going to have such a rough life. But after about a day I got over it and now he is 2.5 years old and I can't imagine not having my little mama's boy. I love him so much.

  • With my first pregnancy I wanted a boy and got a boy and with my second pregnancy I wanted a girl and got a girl. SO I was pretty darn happy, but I can tell you I probably would have been upset if the second pregnancy was a boy again.

  • nope, it didnt matter to me. We had been trying for 2 years so I was glad that I was pregnant and I just want a healthy baby.

  • I admit I cried when I found out my youngest was a boy. My oldest son has always been a lot more high-needs than my daughter and I just didn't feel up to that again. He's really mellow like his sister though so I was wrong about it being any one way because he's a boy. I'd never admit to either of my boys that I was disappointed though.

  • I will cry and be more disappointed if my next one is a girl...I already have one. I need a boy now.
