I am eight months pregnant and do not want a baby girl. In ultrasound at 20 weeks I was told it is a girl. I really cannot explain this feeling to anyone. I have tried to explain this to a close friend and to my husband. Neither could understand. I refrained from discussing this with anyone else because it is embarrassing. My reason for not having a girl has nothing to do with the traditional values and beliefs that girls are inferior etc. I always wanted and pictured myself with a baby boy. Even before we were trying to conceive. I never in my wildest dreams imagined I would be having a girl. The though never struck me, I know it sounds odd that it never struck me, cause its always 50/50, but that is the truth, I never though it could be a girl. My husband is overjoyed that it is a girl but I don’t feel anything. The days are just going by and I am not excited at all. Could this be pre natal depression and not simply gender disappointment? That will make me feel less guilty. Also I can then consult somebody and take anti-depressants. Has anyone gone through such depression without much basis and come out of it? I am scared I may not bond with the baby due to this.
