I’ve noticed this and it makes me a little sad. Since I’m now huge and very obviously pregnant, I get the usual, ooo you’re so big. Ok…really, I’m NOT, I think in the natural scheme of things I’m pretty average. Then they go, you’re so round… I don’t really know how else a pregnant lady is suppose to look? Square? Pointy? Uh?
But this.. this is the sad part. Is it a boy or a girl? So I grin and go GIRL! Most faces fall. WTF? Most of these people are women, seriously? You don’t think your own gender is good enough? Then I go, I want a girl and they go “Oh okay, will you have a second one?” Argh. When I did dream about a child… not wanting one just you know, a dream and in the dream you just happen to have a kid… it’s always been a girl. I don’t know why, it just has. Boy or girl, it frankly didn’t matter to me but in the grand scheme of things if I were to have 2 kids, I’d like a girl first and I’m happy that’s what I got. I think it’s dreadful when women make that face like our own gender is just not good enough. Sigh.
