I feel bad for thinking this way...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
A few weeks ago I was told I was having another boy. I already have one son and would love to have a girl. When I found out, I was kinda disappointed but I got over it after a few days. I went to my 19 wk sonogram Wednesday and now we don't know what it is. I'm going back in 4 wks to specify the gender again and deep down I'm getting hope that it is a girl. I'd love my children no matter the gender but I can't help feeling this way sometimes, especially seeing all my nieces I have and the cute baby girl stuff at stores. :(

Op don't google the stuff suggested. You don't need to worry yourself reading about birth defects just because you may have gender disappointment.

I don't think so mommies(including myself ) that I know irl got gender @ 14 weeks. All accurate.

Quoting mommy74146:

It's not that accurate at 14 weeks. It's best to wait til 19-20 weeks.




Quoting 1stpreggers:

I'm confused they said boy and now they aren't sure? They can tell gender @14 weeks.

I do ultrasounds for a living. They are not THAT accurate, as in they can be right but at the same time can be wrong so early in pregnancy.

 I cried like a baby when they told me I was having a girl.  I really wanted a boy. 

I am so SO glad I have a girl I just know she is the perfect child for me!!  I will pray you get what you want.

I know that feeling. I literally went into a deep depression with all 3 of my boys. My first I cried immediately when the U/S tech said boy. My 4th is my girl and I asked every time at my weekly U/S after 20 weeks if she was a girl and then again at her birth.

Seeing post like this makes me wonder why ppl are given the choice to know what gender the baby is before it is born. Does it really matter as long as the baby is healthy?

 It's normal to feel that way
