    Genetically the embryo is hers and her husbands. She is Italian, and her husband Irish. When seeking the swap, I assume she worded it as donor egg/sperm as she is essentially treating it as such.

    Yeah I found the post in the article at odds with what was actually said. She talks about her genes in the article so I don’t think it’s a donor.

    I've interpreted the article as the embryo is genetically theirs.
    Surely this rings alarm bells to the fertility councillors. But in saying that, there are ppl out there with no morals and behave like entitled *********. Even if she does swap out her embryo, doesnt guarantee a take home baby. But this doesn't seem to be her focus....she just wants a girl.

    Really strange idea to me.

    I know gender preference and disappointment is real, but I see that as a sad consequence of our society’s obsession with gender. Having a child with particular genetics doesn’t guarantee any particular experience in raising them. What if they have a second son who loves dressing up, dancing and the colour pink? What if he’s gay? Or ironically, transgender?

    And since when did a child’s preference dictate their life experience? I doubt any of us had a say in how many siblings we had, where we grew up etc. I don’t think it’s healthy for anyone to make big decisions about your family based on a child’s preference. Imagine how he’d feel if he got there brother he wanted, and the family struggled to cope (personality, health, disability...whatever).

    I add if she was that adamant she wanted boys only why not just do gender selection to begin with as it’s legal in the states whether or not you have legit medical reasons

    I think that’s what she was doing but only ended up with a female embryo.
