I'm having a boy and already have a girl and everyone keeps telling me how amazing that is. I find it pretty insulting really. I had a miscarriage in January and I would just been happy either way so long as I get to bring this baby home.

I had a strangely opposite situation. Id have loved two girls, equally i love the fact that i am having a boy and have a 4 year old daughter.

When i told a friend at work we were having a boy, he said....oh thats great, it will be a proper family that way. Eh what does thay even mean!? I would have been over the moon with two girls, two boys, one of each i really dont care as long as they are happy and healthy.

This. Several people I've told have asked "are you hoping for a boy or a girl?" And one outright said "you guys are hoping for a girl I bet"!!!! I actually reply and tell people well I had a miscarriage in February so I just want a healthy baby I get to bring home. I know it makes people feel uncomfortable but I don't care! Hopefully they'll rethink their thoughts on baby gender and they won't make those comments to the next pregnant woman they talk to.

We find out in a couple of weeks what baby #2 is and I'm really not bothered either way what we have. I have had the whole 'you'll be hoping for a boy this time round' comment. Actually....I couldn't care less. I have PCOS so the fact I managed to conceive this LO naturally without any medication is good enough for me!
Tends to such them up

My family are all 'convinced' it's a boy (probably because that's what they all want), but what will be, will be. As long as LO is healthy, I'll be over the moon.

Congratulations on your little boy!

I have a daughter and this time im having a boy, which everyone wanted me to have. I felt abit stressed out knowing none of them was thinking girl, its rude!!! Its about a baby joining the family and either way they were very much wanted! I find people try to have an opinion on everything in my life. Names, finding out the sex, what i buy for them, how much i hold them. I still get told by my mum what she classes as being ok for me to get my daughter for presents. So bossy!! Ignore them once babies here im sure they will want to snuggle him. Plenty of women limit to 1-2 children and are happy with 2 of the same or one of each. You cant keep having babies to try get what you want. You have the number of children you want and can afford. When im pregnant i find people around me totally annoying.

Congratulations on having another beautiful boy. 2 sons will create you lots of amazing memories:-) xx

I'm dreading this! We find out what we are having on Saturday, and after already having 2 girls, I have a feeling I'll get a lot of negative comments and reactions if this one is a girl too. I'll be happy either way, as long as baby is healthy, that's all that matters to me! However, a lot of people have already made it clear to me that I should be disappointed if we don't get a boy, even more so because this is our last baby. 🙄😡

This happened to me with dd2. So many people asked if I was disappointed it was another girl. Truth be told I knew she was a girl from the moment I got my positive test, I could just tell. I was over the moon to have a sister for dd1 as they were close in age and they have an amazing bond now. There was no hint of disappointment. Of course, this time around almost everyone has said oh you will be wanting a boy this time. I feel different from my pregnancies before so maybe it is a boy but I can honestly say all I'm hoping for is a healthy baby...regardless of gender xx

I think a lot of people will be disappointed if our miracle baby is a boy as we have a son already and everyone keeps saying "they have a feeling it's a girl". They all also presume I want a girl just because we already have a boy. I keep telling everyone I dont' mind, I'm over the moon with this baby already and it doesn't matter whether it's a girl or a boy but others seem to have a better idea than me :/ I just try and ignore them, don't need any negativity.

I think people just see the ideal as one of each, which don't get me wrong, is lovely to have but then so is having 2 boys or 2 girls ect. I'm happy I have a girl coming but I would have been equally happy for a brother for my boy too. So long as baby is healthy, then things are good.
