I read an article in a free magazine I received from our pedicatrician's office. It stated that 80% of parents (or mothers, I can't remember) were upset with the gender of their babies. Eighty percent?!? Not just disappointed - I think I read upset/angry.
I'm not trying to be judgmental here, but perhaps these people haven't had any difficulty in pregnancies. Perhaps they didn't have any issues conceiving, never miscarried, never saw their three-pound baby hooked up to machines and getting an early morning NICU call saying, "Houston, we have a problem." Because I think if they had, I don't think they would be upset about the gender of their babies. They would just be happy to have the privilege of having a healthy baby.
