I'm 20 wks and having an ultrasound in a few days. But at 12 wks I'd already had people saying the old, "I hope you're having a (boy) or (girl)" and I'm starting to get a tad annoyed. I've already had a miscarriage (most people know about it) and I just want a healthy baby. It kinda of hurts my feelings that people would "wish" a gender on my baby. What are they going to do when it turns out I don't have what they want? Nothing right? Because in the end they will love the child anyway, right? So why do people feel they have to express their wishes? It doesn't doesn't make sense to me. Maybe this is more of a personal vent of mine than anything else. I would never tell someone who's pregnant that I'm hoping for one gender over another ... it just seems selfish and insensitive. Does anyone feel the same way or is anyone experiencing the same feelings I am?
