Re: Gender Disappointment

All I cared about was alive this pregnancy, and with 5 previous pregnancies as "boy" we were sort of in the mindset that they're always going to be boys, and he a boy (he's still cooking) and I'm very good with it.

However, I know my husband had to grieve a bit at not having a girl and that was hard. He agrees that alive is all that matters, but I think he'd have really liked to have a little girl. I am sad for him, even though I'm not sad for myself if that makes any sense? Sometimes I think our grief can also be part of knowing that our spouse wants a specific gender
