I just want a baby girl
So much so, that it never even occurred to her that she could end up with either all sons or all daughters. Having grown up in small, tight-knit families, Laura and her husband knew they wanted four kids. They started off with twin boys , so, naturally, hoped their third would be a girl. However, number three also turned out to be a boy. The last child, they figured, would definitely be a girl.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Bryce Vine - Baby Girl (Lyrics)

Wanting a baby girl so bad it hurts--advice?
Hello--I am hoping someone has experienced some of the same feelings I am experiencing. I would like some advice about how to deal with a great longing for a baby girl.
I have 3 healthy and rambuncious boys ages 5, 3, and 1. Although I dearly love my boys, I guess I have always wanted a girl. The past year I have been dealing with these feelings and thought I had come to terms with them. Recently the hormones in my BC made my body feel pregnant and now I am back to square one with all the feelings of sadness and loss. My head tells me to just get over it, but my heart won't. It sounds silly writing all this down, but has anyone else been at this place?
Will I always feel this way? DH is very supportive and understanding. He is open to trying again, but I am not sure. However, DH has 2 grown daughters, so having a girl is not such an issue for him. I know I should just be thankful for 1 having children, and 2 having healthy children--please understand I realize this. I just need to hear how other people have dealt with wanting a girl--or a boy--so bad it hurts.
Thanks for your responses. I also wanted a girl after my sons were born. Not to the extent you seem to be having, but wanted her nonetheless. She was born when my boys were 10 and I loved dressing her in those frilly little dresses, bows in her hair, cute little shoes By the time she hit 3rd grade, she became the biggest tomboy you'd ever want to see, and still is somewhat at almost I blame her brothers, who taught her to bite, kick, spit, shoot hoops and slide into homeplate.
I always wondered why "Sarah" has all girls or "Susie" has 1 of each. I realized that god gives you what you need. Maybe a girl is in your future with another pregnancy or maybe your path is to adopt. I hope you are blessed with grand-daughters : : : : And don't forget those daughter in laws, if they are in the cards!!!!!!!
I can understand your longing for a girl, its nice to have a female in the house, just like you, to chat to, to go shopping with, to buy pretty things. I think you will get over feeling like that as you focus on your life with your boys. You will, one day have 3 daughters-in-law and that will be nice for you. Something to look forward to.
You never know how your life will turn out. As one poster says above, her daughter turned into a tomboy! Across the road from me is a house with 4 daughters and next door is a house with 4 boys. Its curious how some people have so many of the one sex!
My father was one of 8 children, 5 girls and 3 boys. I guess you will get a girl sooner or later, if you keep going, but you might end up with a very large family! Thanks for all your replies. I'm not sure why having a little girl seems to be so important to me. Just one of those long seated desires. I enjoy my little boys--they are exciting, adventuresome, and fun loving. I guess part of the desire is the frilly dresses, the curly red hair that I don't have to cut short at least I would assume since all 3 boys have red hair , and then later on hopefully the chance to help my daughter with her children.
I may be wrong but it seems to me that daughters have closer relationships with their parents than sons at least it is that way in my family. Who knows, we could end up with a daughter that doesn't like us at all!! Maybe we will try again later. I need to get my head screwed on straight before I decide that--get those darned BC hormones out of my body so I can think rationally. Funny how things like the size of your vehicle can partly determine how many kids to have!
Thanks, I am feeling better today. You are right, God has his reasons for me having 3 boys, I just get sad about it sometimes. Here is a link that might be useful: XSort. I just went thru this with my niece. She was pregnant with her third after already having two boys.
She felt so bad for wanting a girl; almost as if she thought she was being ungrateful for the children she had.
If she had girls, she would have wanted a boy. It's perfectly normal. Yes, God gives us what we need, but he will also give us our hearts' desires too!! Guess what? She gave birth to a baby girl last Wednesday! She use a method that I really think works. I never used it intentionally, but when I look back, it seemed to be a pattern for me. Do a search for the Shettles Method.
Here is one link. Basically, if you want a girl, you should have intercourse several days before you ovulate. Here is a link that might be useful: Shettles Method. When the 5th child was born, the doctor came in the room and said, "You have another one.
He said, "I mean you have another girl". She was quite upset but had no choice but to get over it. After the 5th one, they gave up. No one can predict the gender of a child. If you keep going, you MAY end you with a girl, but, you could also have another boy. To this day, I wished I really had a brother, as all of us girls are a PITA to be around all at once and a brother would have been a great referee.
I think there is something to that Shettles method, reflecting on when my children were conceived. I have 2 boys, a girl, then 1 more boy.
I know she was conceived early in my cycle than the boys. If I could wish a girl for you I would. I do understand the gratitude for what you have, but still a void for a girl. It's just nice to experience both sides of parenting.
I don't know if I'd go so far as to use medical science to get my way. It must be expensive, too. But if a little scheduling really does help As long as you are emotionally prepared if a girl is just not to be.
I am glad y'all brought up Shettles. If and when we try again 5 children!?!? I think he is in California If it's any consolation, my sister also had 3 boys. She then went on to have 4 girls in a row! So you never know! Best of luck in your decision. If nothing else, you can hope for girl grandbabies! We are expecting number 3 in July and after 2 girls a boy would be nice but a girl is fine with us. There is a family where they just had their 6th girl.
If I was the mom in that family I would tell the dad that 6 is enough Baby was 10 lbs 12 oz. Here is a link that might be useful: Chinese Birth Calender. Thanks everyone for your replies. Thanks also for understanding. I have heard of the Shettles method. Maybe we will give it a try. Haven't decided yet.
I really need to make sure it is a good thing for the whole family and not just me. Thanks again. I totally understand your desire for a girl.
Sex selection: Getting the baby you want
Little girls might not really be made of sugar and spice and everything nice, but there are plenty of reasons to rejoice in your mini-me. From the great clothes to the fact that she'll be modeling herself on you and more, little girls are the best. The beautiful dresses, the varied patterns, the cheery colors, plus ruffles and lace: no doubt about it, baby girl clothes are adorable. More options and a wider selection than you'll find in the boys' department makes outfitting your girl the best game of dress-up ever. Your little girl might start out bald, but soon she's sure to have a head full of hair that just begs to be styled and decorated.
Your heart was set on having a girl or a boy , but genetics decided otherwise. It's perfectly normal to feel disappointed. Here's what to expect if you're currently suffering from gender-reveal blues. Right around your week appointment, people will inevitably ask, "Are you hoping for a boy or a girl?
How to Deal with Gender Disappointment
We sit around a glass coffee table. The room is clean and modern, the furnishings are that chicken soup colour favoured by architects — and expensive private clinics. Which is just where they are heading. The Gunns want a baby girl. The couple seem slightly bemused. Not so much because they are travelling halfway round the world for a fantastically expensive and invasive treatment. But because they can't quite understand how they ended up having three boys in the first place. No red wine, no red meat, no coffee, and you had to have white rice and fish and chicken. It was quite bizarre. My friend was on it, too.
