I haven’t even found out the sex of my baby but already I am feeling gender disappointment.
I DESPERATELY want a little boy.
In this video I try and open up about my feelings and explain why I feel the way I do.
Has anyone else experienced this? Please tell me I’m not alone!
How did you cope when you didn’t get the news you wanted?? Help!

Thank you Rebecca. Its such a difficult thing to talk about as not many people do! xx

It’s totally real! I found out both times and helped me get my head around it I suppose. But I know people that don’t find out as they know they won’t care when the baby is in their arms, if that makes sense? Good luck x

It’s defo real. I desperately wanted a boy and had pretty much convinced myself I was having one. I’m glad I found out as both hubby and I were able to get our heads around the facts that we were having another girl. Now I wouldn’t change her for the world xx

Oh I feel like you are exactly the same as us! Thank you so much for commenting. We’ve known since started and already it feels like she is meant to be, I already can’t imagine anyhting else xxxx

It’s real for sure…i desperately wanted a little girl the second time around but i knew from the start he was a boy…i just had a gut feeling and actually i didn’t feel disappointed by that at all in the end. I wast just grateful he was healthy and growing well. Everyone is different though, there’s never a right or wrong way to feel about something! xx
Sarah28th November 2016 at 5:25 PM
I felt the same. It’s so funny as when I found it it was like I had always known and that it was meant to be xx

It’s definitely real! It’s such a hard situation as it’s difficult not to dream about your future kids and who they’ll be. But I agree I think finding out the gender early on helps you come to terms with things and prepares you! Congratulations on your pregnancy 🙂 xxx

Thank you Georgina. Im so pleased that you understand xxx

I know gender disappointment is a genuine thing, so don’t feel guilty for feeling this way as sometimes you can’t help the way you feel. I’m sure once you’ve got your head around it and once she’s finally here, it won’t matter at all 🙂 xx
Sarah28th November 2016 at 5:09 PM
It already doesn’t matter. It’s so funny but once you find out for real, its like you’ve always known and like its meant to be. xxx

I remember the first time I was pregnant with my first. We came out of the ultra sound department and were like “f*** sake” lol because we really wanted a girl. Now we have one each
Sarah5th December 2016 at 10:22 AM
he he! so funny, It’s such a funny thing isn’t it. We were definitely like ‘oh well’. Poor baby. Now I have come to terms with it I am rather excited for this new girlie adventure xx

With my first I desperately wanted a girl and I’d made myself believe that was what I was having so I was really quite upset in the scan hen I was told it was a boy. But it gave me 20 weeks to get used to it being a he. Now he’s here I wouldn’t want it any other way. With baby 2 now I’m not really bothered. I love the idea of having two boys but also would love to have that girl one day.

Are you going to find out this time lovely? I worked myself up in to such a state before hand and it was silly really. I am really looking forward to this new adventure with two girlies xx
