My good friend, a fellow mom of two boys, recently shared the good news that she's pregnant with number three. As she leaned over her coffee cup to tell me the details, I could see that she was fighting back tears. "Is everything okay?" I

Everybody has an opinion about gender and birth order, lol. I think that it's brave for the mom in the op to express her disappointment. I think it's a natural feeling for many women. Most women who have a momentary disappointment about gender, get over it, and love their children, regardless of the gender (and those who don't would have issues anyway).

I have known several women who were diappointed in the sexes of one or two of their children.

Yeah, I've known several women who've been momentarily disappointed, but it didn't last long. I think I would have been a little disappointed if neither of mine had been girls, but I know I would have fallen in love with boys too. For me, one of the really cool things about parenting has been seeing the people your kids turn into, which isn't something you can predict.
