Are pregnant women being honest when they say they could care less if they have a boy or a girl?
Momlogic's Momstrosity: I was at my amnio and the technician was showing me the needle he was about to plunge into my belly to determine if my over-40 bod was harboring a genetic abnormality. I started to cry. "Don't worry," he said encouragingly, "it's not going to hurt that much." But that's not why I was weeping. It was because the sonogram that accompanied this office visit revealed I was having a girl. I was devastated. I wanted a boy sooooo badly.
A recent poll says that almost 70 percent of women could care less if they had a boy or a girl. That seems mighty high to me ... and not entirely honest. To say you don't have a preference seems unrealistic -- how can you imagine yourself with a baby if you're not going to, in your head, picture a specific sex?
Did YOU have a gender preference when you were expecting?
