Hello lovelies All my MIL has gone on about since I became pregnant is how much she hopes it's a girl and how 'over the moon' she'd be with a granddaughter. She has 2 sons and I think she's got it into her head that girls have a special bond with their mums, more than she has ever had with her boys. I have tried to tell her that this isn't always the case - I for one have always been a daddy's girl!! But anyway maybe she's hoping that she can share in some special girly bond as a grandmother to a little girl. At first I didn't mind, and was pleased she was excited. But the nearer I get to my due date, and the more she goes on about it, the more uncomfortable I'm starting to feel! She reminds me every time we speak that she's really hoping for a girl, and says it to friends and family members in front of me, and to DH. It seems like a boy would be a disappointment to her! It's our first baby, and we have absolutely no preference - but all this talk is making me feel that I myself might feel a twinge of disappointment if a boy appears, just because he's not quite the 'perfect' first grandchild my MIL was hoping for!
