When people see a pregnant woman who's just found out that she's having another boy or girl, is it so hard to say, "That's wonderful! Congratulations and I hope you have a healthy baby!"
Then how come when I tell people I'm having another girl, I get a look of sympathy? Or I'm told that we're "in for it" because we'll have two teenage girls with raging hormones. Or THEY were hoping we'd have a boy.
I'm sorry our sperm and egg's uniting did not result in an opposite gender sibling of the child we already have. I'm sorry some may think it "cliche" to say we really just want healthy children, regardless of gender?
Guess I'm a little grumpy because it has not only been friends and family, but perfect strangers who seem displeased with the results of our sonogram. Displeased with this precious gift from God!
So, I'm making a mental note (I know, making a mental anything during pregnancy is dangerous) to have a more sensitive reaction to women during pregnancy. Unless they are smoking. Then it is ON.
