Gender disappointment is very real and I don't judge women who suffer this. In most cases, once bub is born, their fears and anxieties will disappear.
What I find most offensive in the article is the mass generalization of what boys are like. My DS is the most affectionate little soul already, constantly chasing his female cousin around wanting cuddles. He also loves Little Princess & Dora
I come from a family full of girls, no experience with boys but still always wanted one first. I also wanted to give my Dad a grandson - they have an amazing bond like I knew they would. I love it. I'm also much closer with my Dad than I was/am with Mum, so maybe that was part of it too.
Bub2 arriving next week is also a boy and I couldn't be happier. Would I have liked a girl one day? Of course, but never felt anything but happiness when told it was another boy. I already look forward to Sat morning Auskick sessions (but I love sport which helps!).
