How are pregnant women so ungrateful for what they have? Today a few friends of mine (on a support group page I’m a member of on Facebook), posted a link to a pregnant woman who is and I quote
“Recently found out we are pregnant with a girl. I was really hoping for another boy for my son to play with. I’m struggling with the gender disappointment. It’s going to be loved so please don’t go straight to ‘some people struggle to have kids, just be grateful’. I am grateful and do struggle with fertility, but just feeling a little low.”*
I want to rant and rave at this unknown ignorant woman. But I know I can not. She is simply ignorant of how fragile life really is. Life can be taken away in a pin point of a moment. And it doesn’t return. I doubt this woman actually realises how many babies die each year.
‘Ignorance is bliss’
fits this moment precisely. This woman, this blissfully pregnant woman can not even imagine the pain and loss of a baby. That baby she will once is born love and treasure, and probably feel guilty if any thing should ever happen to that sweet baby.
Do not get me wrong, I am completely angered by this woman, to be gender disappointed is like saying your disappointed at a child that turned out to be gay. It’s something that baby/child has no control over, and your emotions and actions can be controlled. I’ve just realised my time ranting at this woman could be better spent ranting about people who complete and utterly piss me off.
There are many people who I get angry with on social media. As I have mentioned before parent’s who complain about not going out, women who put fake “I’m pregnant” status’ on Facebook and a new one pregnant people who still act irresponsible with life, I have a certain friend who has told me that she hates being pregnant. I’m constantly angered at pregnant women who smoke during their pregnancies, and it seems now that I hate it so much I constantly see it happen. I honestly cannot believe there are people who think like this about babies/pregnancy. Especially when there are so many of us in this world struggling and who would give the world to have their precious bundles of joy here, and yet people who tend to think like this seem to have it too easy.
Welcome to the world of an indecisive, selfish mind that cannot keep from one subject to another. Welcome to a mind where seeing these post’s and comments anger, frighten and sadden me. I see and hear these daily and its a constant reminded of a mother I could have been had I not been awoken from my ignorance.
*I cannot tell you the person of the post as they have posted anonymously and I don’t want them getting hate mail as she is still pregnant. It was only posted 3 days ago.
