I went the opposite way and i told everyone what we are having once i got over the crying part. I figured i would rather have all the comments now than when he is born and i am pushing him around in his pram. Have people coming up and saying 'so what did you have? , oh another boy!' I think i may have punched them in the head i often wonder why i didnt get a daughter, why so many people i know who dont even want to look after their kids get a daughter. I know i could have been a good mum to a girl plus its only a 25% chance of having 3 of the same gender in a row!! trust me to be in that 25% its not bloody fair! On the other hand i know that the world needs good men in it and i am responsible for bringing up 3 now which is an honour in itself. I dont think i will ever get over that feeling that something is missing from my life but i need to accept it. I am now a boy mum and thats it! i need to be happy with my lovely boys.
