The sex chromosome in human female is XX while in a male it is XY. Thus, female produces haploid gametes having all X chromosomes but male produces two types of gametes with either X or Y.  The sex of the child will be dependent on which sperm whether the one with X chromosomes or the one with Y chromosome fertilises the ovum with X chromosome.  Therefore, the sex of the baby is determined by the father's chromosomes not mother's

All human beings have 23 pairs of chromosomes.Human males have 22pairs of autosomes and contain one or two types of sex chromosome.They are either X or Y . On our contrary,human female have 22pairs of autosomes and contain only the X-chromosomes .The sex of an individual is determined by the type of male gamete (X & Y) , Which fuses with the X-chromosome of the female .If the fertilising sperm is X then the baby will be girl and if Y then the baby will be boy.

Hence , this is incorrect to blame a woman for the gender of the child .
