I was reading someone's post about this topic last night on another site.
She currently has 3 boys, 1 girl and found out shes pregnant with a healthy baby boy. She was extremely disappointed. She expressed how she felt cheated and simply did not want another boy. She even said "I'm tired of boys...the sports, rough housing, messiness etc." She wasnt happy at all.
Though I understand gender disappointment and do not judge anyone who has or will experience it. I felt sad and honestly a little angry with her statement. Not all girls are into being pretty, pink and fluffy. Just as not all boys are loud, messy and rough. Type casting an unborn child, a child who did not ask to be born, is so unfair! This boy doesn't have the fair chance with a mom like that which is really sad.
I also read about a different woman who found out she was having a boy, she was so distraught she went into therapy!
I know nothing about boys! I'm such a girly girl who grew up just knowing my first child was going to be a girl but God has blessed me with a boy. & I am so in love with him already I cant imagine having anything else right now.
