I feel really bad for saying this but I wanted to know if other women have felt the same. I am 16 weeks pregnant with my first child and had a scan at a private clinic yesterday and was told i'm having a girl and i'm completley gutted!!!! I broke down in the loo's after I left the scan!
I have always wanted a little boy and have pictured his little face since was a teenager.I have 3 brothers so have always got on well with boys,I feel likeI won't be able to relate to her at all.Im so upset I can't stop crying,I feel like everything I dreamed of has now been ruined.I don't know what to do!! it's so hard pretending to be excited around my friends and family when deep down I feel depressed. It's put me off ever having anymore children.
Has anyone else experienced this?

I think you are quite brave in writing this, I think most are just happy to know they have a healthy baby whatever the gender.
i understand you're nervousness as I guess you are just now feeling you won't know how to cope regarding to bonding with a girl. I have similar feelings in the way that I just can't imagine having children, so just hoping the natural instinct kicks in when he or she is here.
For the first 2 years of your babies life it's going to be pretty irrelevant what gender it is, by the time she is old enough to be requesting 'girl' things you will have grown a bond and unconditional love for your child. You never know, she might turn out to be a Tom boy!
Please try not to feel upset about it and enjoy it for what it is. You are a girl, can you imagine coming in to this world if your mum didn't want you?
