I worked it out
I'm very sorry if my comment today offended anyone, it's very hard to tell through words alone if I have, but was just sharing a thought
BUT I can tell that your thoughts are around people who are absolutely gutted & go on and on about it. I have a friend who grieved and then accepted - I don't get those who can not get over it...ever.....
Oh no, Channy, I don't think you could have possibly offended anyone with that. I was just trying to share what I had also noticed recently and ourselves as I think a lot of the disappointment comes from preconceived ideas and dreams/mindset which is difficult to change right away when they find out. It is hard to see people who openly dislike/despise that they are having a particular gender after they have had time to readjust though. Any baby is precious, it is a shame that some people don't prepare themselves for the chance that it could be the other when it is ultimately down to a lot of chance.
Definitely not offended Channy!
Not offended at all Channy. I agree with you. It's one thing to be a bit bummed for whatever reason then to get over it. I can understand that. It's quite another to be really vocal about it. My SIL and BIL found out the gender with my niece. They were hoping for a boy and got a girl. They were really disappointed at first but now couldn't imagine their lives any different. Yet, I can't help but think, "What happens if someone slips around my niece or says something like 'well, she's acting like the boy you wanted'" when she gets older. How is she going to feel? Going to the step of abortion though, not ok.
Feel free to voice a thought. I think we're all friends in here.
Rainbow: Yay for babyshower. Thats my bro's birthday.
Channy: Don't think anyone would get offended you were just voicing your opinion.
MissX: With the PPL even though you have done it online you still need to fill out the paperwork you get in hospital, you just get to skip a heap of questions. I didn't realise and had to fill it out at the office.
LittleTed: Thank-you. Yes I am really close with all my family which is why I struggle with them so far away.
I just wanted to add in my 2 cents on the comment channy was talking about even though I'm not usually here.
I'm in the same dig as you channy and I saw the comment you are talking about. I couldn't believe it and just had to walk away from fb for a while. Considering how hard some people struggle to have a baby I think it was a bit uncalled for.
