I am ready to find out the baby's gender. Not because I am feeling impatient (because I am oddly not which is so rare for me) but because I am already sick of people's comments. "Oh I bet you want a boy" to which I usually reply that I think it is going to be a girl (which I do). Now I keep getting asked, "Oh does that mean you are having #3 then?" or "oh your DH is going to want a 3rd."
I don't know why this irritates me so but it does. First, let me have this baby before we talk 3, second, DH does want a boy but has said numerous times he will be just as excited to have another girl and third, if we have a third child it will be because we want a third child, not because we want a boy.
Is it really that hard to believe it is possible to be happy with all the same sex children? I happen to adore my duaghter and while I would be just as excited to have a boy I am also very content with 2 girls. Don't get me wrong, I think it is fine to hope one way or the other (and DH does hope for a boy) I just get tired of the implication that we can't be done/happy if we do not have one of each.
*Sigh* I guess it’s time to go back and hide in my pregnancy cave where I cannot unleash my hormones on the unsuspecting population.
I don't blame you for being mad. I have three of each sex, so people have been asking what I want, well I want a healthy baby that's it Boy or Girl it doesn't matter to me. Then they well go on to say that I need another after this one so I can have even number's again lol. Maybe I like the number 7 or I might go for 8 right at this moment though I do think 7 is enough and unless I change my mind I will be doing the tubal after the birth. But it's no one's business but mine and the DH and the same for you. The world would be a much better place if people would just shut up and keep some of there opinions to themselves...... I might should go hide in that cave too lmao my hormone's are raging.....
Totally understand! We had two girls then everyone just assumed we were "trying for our boy" but we just wanted a third!! Him being a boy was a bonus!! My SIL said "oh I didn't feel the need for a third because I got a girl and boy so I was lucky" errr that isn't why we are trying for a third! Anyhow now that we are pregnant with number 4 I get "bet you are hoping for a boy so you have two of each" lol!!! So no matter how many you have you will always get someone saying something!!
I remember DH saying to me when he found out his sibling's second was a boy: "I'm glad. Now they have one of each." It struck as the most bizarre response. One of each? Like a nice pair of shoes -- one to go with each kind of outfit? Yes, with one of each, now their life is set in contentment and happiness.
I'd say let the pregnancy hormones rage on at the unsuspecting strangers. Perhaps they won't accost the next pregnant lady with their theories.
I get that all the time. I honestly can't say I wasn't hoping for a girl. But I totally feel that this baby is going to be a Jacob. DH says he doesn't care either way but we have agreed this is our last baby.
Can't wait for you to find out so everyone can stop bugging you about it!
Im in the same boat. Some of you girls put it perfectly the whole "one of each crap so they stop" Hmm even if I had some of each, I still want more children. People are so strange, that being said, we are hoping for a little testosterone this time around, my DH would love a son, but if it doesnt happen were fine with another little girl, she would fit in perfectly. Im just SO sick of people saying "OMG if you have 3 girls, OMG" I just want to find out the sex.
I just LOVE the comments! It drives me nuts. With our first dd, we heard "well, now you've got to try for a boy so you'll have one of each." Then after dd#2 came I got, "is your husband disappointed?" or "wow! 2 girls! your husband is in trouble!" "when are you going to try for a boy?" "you better hope you get a boy next so you can be done."
Done? Who said we have to stop at 3? And since when does having a boy make my family complete?
Now that we know this baby is a boy I get, "oh, I bet your husband is just THRILLED!" Well, yes, he is but, mostly he's happy we are having another baby. I'M the one who really wanted a boy but would have happily welcomed a 3rd daughter. I've also gotten the comment that we have to have another boy so it'll be even. No stranger is ever happy with how my family is turning out!
i remember my mom telling me my grandparents told my dad how disappointed he must have been when my sister was born, so he didnt have his boy.
my dad didnt care.
everyone thinks we are crazy for having #4, but everyone is commenting how we must want a girl to even things out...heck im just happy to be pregnant! and if its a girl yay, if its a boy yay. Ill be happy with a baby!!
