You cant blame your husband for feeling that way. Im sure he still loves you and his girls more than ever. He's propably still grieving over your son and the news of another girl instead of a boy propably just put him back into grieving. He;ll come around. Dont hold his depresseion or grieving against him. He's just trying to deal and im sure he'll love his new daughter just as much.

It could be that the first ultrasound was correct. Some men get strange about the idea of having a son. My father in law is a nutcase on the subject...he came to see me in the hospital the day after my daughter was born and ha__sled me for two hours about when we would start trying to have a son. He even told my husband that he should divorce me and try to have a son with another woman, if I wouldn't have baby after baby until I produced a son. I haven't spoken to him since then. I'm sorry about your husband's reaction, I'm sure it feels like a rejection of your daughters. He'll come around when he holds your new baby (son or daughter) in his arms.

give him time. he loves his little girls and he'll love this little girl. untill he comes around you have 3 daughters who i'm sure are very excited to share your pregnancy with. it's not the same, but you're not alone.
