Another Gender Disappointment Thread

We finally (at 24 weeks) found out that baby #4 is another girl. 4 girls for us and this is it. The end of our childbearing years. I am heartbroken. DH? Not even a little. I really wanted a son, I've always wanted boys, instead I will have 4 girls. 4 girls. It hasn't sunk in totally yet. (only been 2 days since we found out).

Everyone keeps telling me that it is ok to mourn the loss of the son I'll never have.... how do I do that? How can I allow myself to be sad when I have a healthy baby girl in there?

With #3 (who was supposed to be the very last baby) we didn't find out. I suffered from PPD I think, I was just sad all of the time for weeks after her birth. Nothing about it went how I wanted.

I don't want to have that happen again. But I am really concerned that it will.
