I have yet to talk to my mom. I was just too upset today and she didn't call again. I will do that this weekend. I did, however, tell my sister that I was really hurt that no one in the family

was excited for me. She apologized and then said she would start looking up some boy crochet projects to start working on.

I am feeling better tonight. To heck with them I am excited. I even told Gabriel I had a baby brother in my belly and he looked at my stomach very confused lol.

Thank you guys, you really have helped, just to feel justified

And Karry, thank you! I agree my son is pretty cute, lol but hey, I am a tad partial!

Hugs those are awfully insensitive things to say in the light of a brand new baby coming to the family no matter what the sex is. Im sorry about the way they are reacting, like they or you or anyone but God had a say in this. I hope they will come around once they meet your sweet new one and if they dont its their loss, the world needs great men just like it needs great woman.

Wow, super rude! I really don't understand why it's such a disappointment to people that not every family out there will be a balanced mix of boys and girls. Every family is a blessing, as is every child. My mom is one of five girls that were born in a row (my grandma got a boy at the end of it though, LOL) and I think it's really cool to see them all grown up now and super close to one another. On the flipside, I have one brother and one sister, but since our sister is severely disabled it is really just me and my brother that have a "sibling relationship" and I couldn't imagine things any other way. He doesn't need to have girl parts to be one of my best friends. Your kids are going to love another, and everyone is going to love them, regardless of what's in between their legs. And anyone who can't do that has a serious problem!

Wow, just wow. I cannot believe they were so rude to you. I am so mad for you. I have a daughter and I would be overjoyed to have another girl. If I do, and anyone says something like that I swear I will flip out on them. I am so so sorry that people were so rude to you!! I am glad you talked to your sister. I think you need to express to everyone how excited you are, maybe they thought you were disappointed and so they felt they could say those things. Either way it was very rude and disrespectful.

I am so sorry they reacted that way!! Especially since they are family. They should be excited that you are giving them the opportunity to be grandparents/aunt again no matter the gender. I'm glad your sister apologized though. Hopefully everyone else will come around too. I'm afraid we'll get similar comments from friends if we end up with a third girl. I know our family will be happy regardless but now that we've announced to everyone, I've heard several hopes that we finally get a boy.

wow, excuse my language but that is f^cked up!! I am so upset for you omg...

CONGRATULATIONS on your AMAZING baby boy!! <3 I am sure Alex is just as thrilled as you and you two can shop and be excited together! I hope things get better with your family.. they need to buck up and be more supportive. See, if it were me I'd be so hurt I wouldn't respond to anything anyone had to say unless there was an apology involved.... Good luck- Keep your head high!
