    It's just postpartum depression due to hormonal swings...feel happy and blessed to have a sweet healthy and normal baby boy...don't worry this phase will pass and you will feel happier soon. Your naughty boys will keep you too busy to brood!

    Aww.. I can understand your feelings. Many parents feel this when their expectations are not met. Just in a few days, you will get over this feeling as your hormones stabilize and your little prince will win you over. Congratulations:thumbup:

    @Ishaan10,

    Why don't you visualize adopting a beautiful girl baby? This will get you out of depression. Think about it while you second son is growing. 3-5 years later try to materialize your visualization. You will be a happy mother with two boys and a girl.

    If you are unable to overcome your feelings please talk your doctor about post-partum depression. They will be able to help you or direct you to the right resources such as a therapist, counselor or other suitable medical professionals.

    You are having Post Partum Depression. You can take treatment for it.Next time you feel sad about not having a baby girl, give a thought for people like me who are desperate to have any baby(we are struggling to conceive). It will make you feel better. You are blessed!

    Boy or girl each child is precious...Don't think like that...When you feel low just look into the face of your little one...Think how that baby would feel if he knows his mother didn't want him...It maybe postpartum blues..
    Stay strong... Congratulations on your little bundle of joy... Definitely both your boys are going to make you proud and happy
