I've decided that I won't be having a daughter

if I don't get pregnant again by the time I'm 40. No more trying after that. I will go on birth control of some sort and just accept it isn't going to happen. I need some sort of closure and I'm just going to put it on a number to help my brain deal with it. I couldn't love my 5 boys more, but I always wanted a little girl, too. I may always wonder what she would have been like, but I will accept it as the way it was meant to be.

Hopefully, I will be gifted a granddaughter someday.

I am showing signs of fertility, so I have about 16 months or so for it to happen, but we aren't actively trying. What will be, will be.

I would hold out for grandchildren honestly. I've heard that they are so much more fun. LOL

I think that's a good idea, the closure will definitely help. Dh jokes that he only makes boys lol, we still have a couple months before we know what this baby is.

Oh and btw now that the craziness of the holidays are winding down, you owe me a billy Vanilly date! :P

Even if you never get a daughter, I bet one day you'll have tons of grand daughters :)

I think that's wise. 40+ is too old.

I feel for you. I believe you'll be blessed with granddaughters. I wouldn't want to be pregnant after 40 either. Heck, I'm 30 and I'm preggers with #3 and I am DONE after this. I started at 22, so I figure I've earned my late 40s to travel, etc. I have two boys now and this is finally a girl, so I know how you feel...I really wanted my little girl. I hope you do get yours before you close up shop.
