Is there anything riskier than a third pregnancy that may result in a third son? Anything!? I can’t think of one.
A friend of mine is pregnant for the third time (and when I say “friend” I mean my sister. But, you know, sensitive to her anonymity etc.)
As soon as she announced it, she started getting The Comments.
“Ooh, maybe a girl this time?”
“Are you hoping for a girl?”
“Crossing fingers for a girl!”
Because (as you’ve probably guessed) she has already been cursed with TWO BOYS.
I know. Thank you for your heartfelt condolences. My family is dealing with this as best we can.
It is, by societal standards, incredibly challenging, exhausting and rather unfortunate to have Too Many Boys.
