This is our first child. We were planning on a cake reveal, but then I got really sick. So here's what happened...
DH tortured his family by drawing out the reveal until after the Thanksgiving meal. I wasn't able to go since I was sick. So DH called me when he was ready to tell. His mother, father and brother were all chanting and yelling....so excited to find out. I was shocked by their excitement. Once I announced boy, there was a lot of noise. Being on speakerphone, I couldn't distinctly hear everyone's reaction....it was just a lot of noise and cheering.
My family found out via Skype. We shared our screen so they could watch the ultrasound to find out. They were hoping for a girl (this is their 2nd grandchild and my brother has a boy), and let's just say their reaction to our baby being a boy left me wanting a little more excitement. I mean, they are happy, but I really thought my family would make a bigger deal out of it than DH's family. Perhaps if I could have been well enough to be in person, it would have been better. Kinda left me a little bummed.
Sorry it left you bummed I think my family is probably hoping for a boy because so far my grandma has 3 great granddaughters (including DD) and 0 great grandsons...the previous generation (the one I'm in) was mostly boys. DH's family just has DD so I'm sure they want a boy too.
I hope they come around and are excited when you see them in person!
My son is the first and only grand baby/ great grand baby on either side with him we found out the gender and everyone was excited! This time people keep saying "hoping for a girl?!?" While yes I would love a baby girl but would also love another sweet baby boy since they will be only 21 months apart! We are not finding out the gender of this one since my hubby is deployed and should make it home for the birth but not any ultrasounds. I'm kinda relieved for that reason I think it is a lot harder to be disappointed (for the extended family) if they see a beautiful baby instead of an idea. (Idea being it's a boy it's a girl ect because it's not real yet) honestly I would be super pissed if my family wasn't excited about whatever gender baby I have sorry Hun
I'm sorry they aren't more excited. For what it is worth, this is DH's first boy and the first boy in our family for 14 years. We are thrilled, but everyone is kinda driving us nuts because they are toooooo excited lol
