Gender Disappointment

While most pregnant women may not admit it, itís quite normal to have a gender preference. But what happens if you find out itís a boy and you were hoping for a girl or vise versa. Some experts suggest finding out the sex of the baby so that you or your partner will have time to accept the outcome. If you do find out your babyís gender and feel disappointed, donít let feelings of guilt get you down.

Often, gender expectations have to due with the pregnant womanís fears of whether or not she will be able to relate to her baby. For example A woman expecting a baby boy may worry about whether her son will be aggressive enough, or become interested in typical boy games and activities, Remember that whether youíre expecting a boy or girl the important thing is that your baby is healthy and above all else, well loved.
