Unfortunately my SON had all HIS giblets right out for display!
I cried when I found it he was a boy. I cried for days. I didn't get excited at all. At that point it was just, oh, gee I'm having a baby!
But, boy, I will tell you, the minute I pulled that baby up to my chest after the longest, worst labor I think I'll ever go through, it was pure love!!!!!!!
And I've been in love with him ever since!!!!
It'll be fine momma!
My story is almost just like yours. I was sure he was a girl so was my Dh. When I found out I came home and cried. This seemed to cure me for the most part. I wasn't so happy he was a boy but I was happy to be having a baby. It wasn't that I didn't ever want a boy, I just wanted a girl first.
Let me tell you the moment the MW put his warm wiggly body on my chest I have never looked back. I can't imagine having anything other then my beautiful ds, He is the love of my life.
Now I am pregnant again and the doc thinks it looks like a girl. I'm excited but not in the way I thought I would be. I guess since I already have a boy I know they are just as wonderful as a girl. And that no matter what we end up with we are gonna love them more then anything. You will love your daughter more then you can imagine, don't worry.
Also, You can get lots of cute clothes etc second hand. Babies hardly wear their clothes out they grow so fast and aren't eating solids yet or getting into messy stuff. Do you have craigslist? I see people offering whole boxes of clothes for cheap all the time. Is any of your newborn stuff in neutral colors? You could use mostly neutrals and if you care if people know she's a girl just get a couple of pink accents.
