I found out my third and probably last is another boy today it's hard for me because it's not me and my spouse that don't want more it's my parents who are not supportive. They don't understand my need to raise a daughter. I love this baby he is welcomed but I am having a little trouble getting over it.

Thanks again and blessings!
Hehehe! I used to tell my husband it was our job to repopulate the Earth with good men!! We have a very important job to do!

Re: Coming to grips with never having a daughter:(

My sister-in-law has six boys, and each time she became (or becomes!) pregnant she hopes for a girl. She has admitted to me on occasion that she was somewhat disappointed upon finding out... but like so many other things, it grows on you and then you can't imagine life without this precious little boy.

When I had my first baby... it was a girl! I felt so guilty! My second was a boy, and people would tell me I could stop having children because I had one of each - it doesn't work that way!

I love each of my children, but oftentimes find myself clashing with my daughter, and sometimes I think the reason why my sister-in-law kept having kids is because boys can be easier and she never had a daughter to clash with! We are all blessed with different things and for different reasons and I hope you can be content with the children God has given you... just like I hope I can be content with mine, despite how crazy they drive me at times!

You can look forward to your sons having girlfriends, one day having daughters-in-law and possibly granddaughters. Even though you may not have a girl of your own, one day there will be a girl in your family.

Lol. You can stop any time

Just kidding, but we did joke that a bunch of women went to see "Courageous" together and we are experiencing the prayer fallout. Honestly we may not be done after all. I am excited about our 4th boy now, but I am not ready to give up on the idea of having a daughter. May have to make a Microsort baby in a couple of years

Re: Coming to grips with never having a daughter:(

We just had our anatomy scan today, and it's another boy. He looks healthy, which is great. I'm still not excited, though. It's so hard for me not to get my hopes up, and each time it's another boy just gets harder and harder emotionally. At this point I don't know if we'll have any more children, we haven't decided, but just knowing this could possibly be our last is a HUGE disappointment.

Re: Coming to grips with never having a daughter:(

I can totally relate. My 4th boy turns one next month and I'm still trying to come to terms with never having a daughter of my own. For all the reasons you mentioned. It's been particularly hard this past week because my SIL found out she's having a girl, the first in our kids' generation on both sides. She's pretty clueless that it's a sensitive subject for me so I've had to listen all about what a hassle it's going to be buying a whole new wardrobe...yeah, no sympathy here.

Hugs.
