Hi everybody! I'm Melanie Raposo and welcome to Mommy's Minute. Well, many pregnant women may not admit it, it's perfectly normal to have a gender preference. But what happens if you're expecting a boy and we're hoping for a girl or vice versa. Some experts suggest finding out the sex of your baby so that you and your partner have time to accept the outcome. If you do find out the sex of your baby and are disappointed, don't let feelings of guilt get you down. Often gender expectations have to deal with the mother's fears of not being able to relate to her baby. For example, a woman expecting a baby boy may worry about her son will be aggressive enough or be interested in typical boy games or activities. Remember that the important thing is that your baby is healthy and above all of those, well-loved.
