    If one more person tells me that it would be lovely for me to have a girl, then i will go mad! I have a 2 yr old boy already and i love the bones of him. He is a right character and I truly don't mind what I have. I feel like people think i am trying to convince myself that another boy would be ok but I really don't mind whether it's a boy or girl.

    I want a healthy baby and that's it!

    Anyone else had this from people??

    mummyx2 what is it with people??? I really love the idea of having another boy... i am not finding out but i find it weird that people suggest you must be disappointed if its not the opposite sex! I think its great either way!

    yeah for some reason everyone thinks we want a boy. I got a call from my husband's grandmother because she wanted to assure me that since I am having a girl I would love it just as much as a boy. Then I get comments like 'Oh I bet your husband is upset he is having a girl and not telling you'. For real? Right because they know my husband more than me. We are happy to be having a beautiful healthy baby and my husband has been thrilled and we never said anything otherwise. It is so annoying.

    Ive had three boys and people did that to me too. Now pregnant with number 4 baby I feel like I'm under some pressure to have a girl. Lol. I get comments from " we r gonna cry for u if u have another boy" to " poor u if it's another boy" .
    I can just imagine everyones reaction if I have a boy .. Lol.
    I would love to have a girl and I'm hoping it will be BUT I love my boys to death ... And I'm not gonna cry or love it less or feel like I'm less fortunate if I have a boy.
    A baby is a gift in my eyes and I'll love it no matter what !

    I just don't get how people can even think like that. You have obviously experienced the worst and a healthy baby is all anyone should wish for. People are just absurd when it comes to this xx

    I'm getting this from people too. It doesn't bother me in the slightest whether baby is boy or girl. I feel like they don't believe me! xx

    My friend has just given birth to her 4th boy.....and was getting annoyed with all the "oh you MUST want a girl with all those boys". She kept telling them that she didnt mind - no one listened, comments still coming now for her and he's 4 months!!

    (Secretly she only ever wanted boys, so she's completely over the moon ;) )
