We found out about 3 weeks ago that we are having a third boy and everyone, including my two older boys who are 5 and 9, is totally bummed about it.
My husband, who wasn't particularly thrilled about the pregnancy, has stopped mentioning the baby altogether and no one wants to even consider talking about names. If I say something they're like, let's talk about it later.
This week, the boys are spending the week at my mom's house (as they do every summer) so I was doing my annual "clean up" of their room and the playroom and I put a whole bunch of "baby" toys and books in the room that will become the baby's room. So my husband and I were in the room sorting things out and we couldn't even decide on a color or a theme for the nursery - not because we had too many "good" ideas -- but because we just didn't even want to think about it.
Has anyone else felt this way? How did you snap out of it? I feel so guilty for thinking and acting the way we've been acting.
