We just left our OB office and my Dr scanned me as I hoped she would. I'm officially definitely having a little girl!!! It's been confirmed three times now. I think I can stop obsessing over it!!! I am so thrilled and over the moon that after having three wonderful boys, I'm finally getting my daughter. Everything looks good, her heart and other anatomy that Dr pointed out. I had my AFP blood test done today and next appt isn't until January 3rd and we will schedule my anatomy scan at that time.
BUT, I'm heartbroken and don't know how to deal with my Husband who is sad, disappointed, and not excited at all. I want to cry!!! When we had ds3 and I was told girl in the beginning and confirmed boy at elective scan at 18 weeks we were both devastated, although he handled it a lot better than me, but was still disappointed we were having a boy. Somedays even though I was grieving that little girl I thought I was carrying I found myself comforting him and reassuring him it was going to be ok. I have no idea why the change if heart. I've been hearing that he wants a boy for the last 4 weeks or so and I don't know what to do. At first I thought it was because he didn't want to be GD again, but today he said he wanted a brother for ds3 that was closer in age and because we already have all boy stuff a boy would've been easier. Makes me want to cry.
Any advice on how to handle a husband with GD? I seriously feel so guilty being so excited.
Thanks for listening ladies, it feels better so type it out.
