How annoying for you!! Actually my sister (who has 2 little boys) said to me the other day that she is definitely not having any more kids (she can't really anyway cause she's had heart problems recently that she's only recovering from) "and besides, I really want a little girl and I know that if I got pregnant again it would be another boy".
Yeah, what's your point? Her 2 little boys are incredible little boys, I really don't see what the problem would be with having another one!! Oh well, each to their own I suppose!!
I have a DD and DS, people were so excited for me when I had my son, tho I actually wanted another girl. But am happy now of course.
I made it no secret that I wanted a girl this time and told people we were trying for a girl etc, got pregnant and am having TWIN BOYS!
We havent told anyone the sex but of course they are all saying that they hope we are having one of each... Sorry to disappoint but nope! And I am now really happy and have already named my boys and have bought their little clothes etc, and of course my DH is over the moon.
So annoying isn't it!! Everyone seemed dissapointed when we found out we were having another boy! We wanted another boy!! We thought it was a girl though so when we found out it was even more exciting for us because we wanted 2 little boys to be able to do things together and everyone was like 'aw maybe next time' or 'bet you wanted a girl' well no actually we didn't! I wouldn't have a clue what to do with a girl lol x
I get this too. We have a 3yr old DD and were expecting our 2nd girl. We were over the moon, we wanted another girl (obviously would have been thrilled with a boy too but I wanted DD to have a sister) and everyone has been 'aw are you trying again then for a boy?' NO!!! We're happy with our girls!!!
My uncles partner actually said "oh, what a shame, never mind you can try again" WHAT!?!?!?! I flipped! How date they assume you're dissapointed with two children of the same sex! Feel for you ladies gone through this too!
It is disgusting really. How dare they have a right to feel sorry for you? oh your only having two of one gender, what a sad dissapointing thing...what!
Having two boys/girls means that they will have a great sister/brother bond which means they have a friend for life. Why do you need to have one of each? does it really matter? no its just stupid people thoughts
People are stupid!! This is our first and we're expecting a boy and every one acted like we should be disappointed because my OH's brother has had 2 boys so all I've heard is "It would have been nice to of had a girl in the family" SO RUDE.
Actually a post above reminds me of me If I knew for certain my next pregnancy would be a girl, I would go through it one more time. If not, then I wouldn't. Pregnancy is hard on my 4'10", 40kg non-pg frame and while I have loved every minute of it and am so grateful for my two boys, I would have loved the chance to be Mum to a girl as well one day. If I know I won't get that option, I don't want to try again.
Hope that makes sense!
