I don't want it. I hate it. Not sure how to explain why.

I have 2 girls and a boy... but I never wanted girls. Still, don't. After being told I'd never have more guess what I'm pregnant and it's another girl. I don't want it. I hate it. Not sure how to explain why.

I have a hard enough time connecting with the 2 I already have (8 & 6). My boy though is my world, my pride and joy.

Adoption is not an option... and it's too far along to abort. I feel lost and sad and very disappointed.

If it had been a boy I'd have been so very happy. Now I'm just sad wishing I had never gotten pregnant. I hate this baby. Feel not even an ounce of love or compassion for it. Just wish it would die or go away.
