I watched this programme on TV this week, It was about families having only 1 gender kids and desperatly wanting the other gender. In this case the main story was about family with 8 boys and they were still trying to have a girl.
Apparently it is a psychological condition called 'gender disappointment'.
There was 1 woman with 4 boys and she was pregnant again and when they went for the scan and found out it was another boy she actually cried.
I understand it is a psychological condition but I just think about the kids who will all their lives know they are only there because their mum wanted a girl and they are not.....
I really didn't care what gender child I would have as long as the baby was happy and healthy I really didn't care. I can understand that maybe if you have 4 boys you would like a girl but if it is not going to happen it is not going to happen.
What do you all think? do you care? would you keep trying?
