i haven't....yeah i thought it would have been nice had Helena been a boy...but I was happy that she was a girl too..i dont think women should be looked upon negatively...I dont think it can be helped....because in the end you love your baby no matter what
I will say it bothers me when someone is overwrought with grief at finding out that they are having a perfectly healthy baby of the "wrong" sex. I recently read someone who wrote that their pregnancy was a waste. A WASTE! She got over it and loves her kid like crazy, but it was hard to read her posts for a while. I think it is particularly hard to read when you spend YEARS wondering if you would EVER be a mom. I did not care what was or wasn't between my baby's legs as long as I got to me a mom and have a baby of my own.
I was slightly disappointed when my third turned out to be another boy because we knew he was it and so we'd never get the chance to raise a daughter.
However, by the next morning I was cool with it all.
I think its ugly when someone gets overly upset and basically grieves that they didnt get whatever gender they wanted. I can understand being disappointed especially if its your last child but there is a line that can be crossed where I think it becomes extremely ridiculous to be so overwrought. And ya, Ive seen it and had friends who witnessed it. Even had a friends husband tell her to shove it back in til she could produce a boy(this was girl #2).
