Re: Gender Disappointment
It's perfectly normal. I chose to not find out the sex of our baby, just because I wanted to avoid this sort of stress and disappointment. Because despite what I kept telling my family and friends, deep down in my heart, I had a preference. And then we had a big health scare at about 24 weeks and I had a kick-in-the-pants reminder that what I *really* wanted was a healthy baby. Once that scare was over, I found that my anxiety over boy vs. girl was mostly gone... although it did creep back again in the last week or so before I gave birth. This is all to say, you shouldn't feel bad. Most everyone has a preference.
