Do you see many women who battle with gender disappointment and what advise is there besides counselling. I found out the sex of my child and I am devastated. I can''t bring myself to plan for this baby. I have no desire to think about it and I am not enjoying the pregnancy at all. I am hoping once the baby is born I will come around. I have never in my life felt so out of control. Just looking for some reassurance that I will accept and be ok with this baby once it is born. Do you find mothers in this predicament and do they cope?
I don't know how many other children you have, but your reaction seems a bit extreme. Counselling is probably a good idea.
