On last night's episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," Khloe revealed that she is expecting a baby girl! She also revealed initial disappointment in her baby's gender because she was convinced she was having a little boy.
She got over the shock and is now proud that she is expecting a little girl!!
Social media erupted with messages of hate toward the expectant mother. Many called her 'selfish' for being disappointed.
Here's the thing, Khloe isn't the first mom-to-be to be initially shocked and disappointed to find out that the gender they were hoping for isn't the one you get. I have personal experience in this:
Early on in my pregnancy, I was convinced that I was having a baby girl. I had all the "old wives tale" symptoms, and I was hoping for a girl. When I found out that I was having a boy, I was shocked. A few seconds later, the shock wore off and I found myself excited to be having a boy.
I think with out first pregnancies, we get so wrapped up in what we want, we forgot about God's plan for our lives. God wanted Khloe to be the mother of a baby girl. God wanted me to be the mother of a baby boy. There is a reason and a purpose in everything, and while we wish to have all the desires of our heart, it doesn't always end up like that. We need to be open to what God or the fates have in store for us. I think Khloe realized that when she found out the gender, and is now going with His plan for her life.
I don't normally stick up for Kardashians, but I think the hate Khloe Kardashian has been getting is just ridiculous. She is a first-time-mother, and not everyone gets it right. We learn as we go.
Khloe has been judged for holding her baby bump too much, traveling across the world while in her third trimester, exercising too much, and more.
She has also been accused of looking back at her old body, hoping to see it soon. I think all women dream of going back to their pre-pregnancy weight. I know I dream about it! I worked hard to get to a healthy weight. I've kept my pregnancy weight gain within normal limits, and I know that I have the drive in me to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight.
The point in all of this is, we need to be less judgmental, and more supportive, regardless of who the person is and what family they are from. Sure, she may have been disappointed in finding out she's having a girl, but she didn't stay disappointed. Pregnancy is a mess of emotions, and we need to cut her some slack.
