    Some of the replies are just awful! Shouldnt the most important thing be that baby is healthy?

    Trust me the comments get even worse after you have a 3rd of the same gender. DS3 was a few hours old and people were asking when we were going for #4. DS2 & 3 get ignored a lot by family members, its really upsetting. I actually would of loved a chance to have a little girl as well but I wouldn't change a single hair on my boys heads, they are my world.

    We haven't gotten quite got this as we were lucky enough to have boy, girl, boy, girl. We do however get you have one of both why have more. And we also got the oh you're so lucky you have a pigeon pair.
    And now when we said we were trying for another we get comments about how crazy we are and why would we want to especially when we have 2 of both.

    It's crazy that some people put so much into the sex of children rather than just being happy that they are healthy

    Upon hearing that we were having a second girl, the reactions of most were as if we had told them something was wrong with bub. I stopped telling people.

    We got this too. I don't think people really think before they open their mouths.
    When I was pregnant with DD2 everyone said they hoped we had a boy, totally forgetting the fact that she is a natural miracle after years of trying and IVF. I remind people of this fact when they say anything to me about having a boy. I just tune them out when they say anything hurtful. I have warned DF that he will always get people commenting on how he is outnumbered etc. he says he doesn't care and wouldn't have our family any other way.
    I love being a mum to two girls.

    I've had the opposite. I was absolutely devastated when I found out this baby was a boy. I had depression and was hoping for a girl so bad it really hit me. Most people have been wonderful about it and focused on the positives. I'm sorry you all had such bad experiences. Some people are just thoughtless.

    Yes, we have 3 boys and a girl. When I found out we were having a third boy I told everyone, so they could get their nasty little comments out of their system. I didn't want the birth of my son clouded by other people's disappointments. People are heartless sometimes, they would say '3 boys.... You poor thing!' wtf??? Everyone says thank goodness I 'got my girl' finally....ummm....I just wanted a 4th baby, not a girl in particular, although it is lovely, I think our next one will be a boy

    How sad that so many of you have had such ridiculous reactions! I am preggers with number two and really hoping for another boy, I don't understand the "oh, are you hoping for a girl this time?" comments. At the end of the day I'm pretty sure people have children because they want a child, not because they need a pigeon pair or a particular gender. As other have said, at the end of the day parents are generally stoked just to have a beautiful little person in their lives and people should not make dumb assumptions

    I'm pregnant with #2 and I really don't mind what gender bub is. In a lot of ways I'd love to have another girl and DH loves the idea of having another girl too. He'd like to have at least on more child after this (will take a hell of a lot of convincing to get me to agree though!) and has said it would be awesome to have all girls. On the other hand a boy would be exciting because it'll be something new for us.

    I expect to get some thoughtless comments about how we must be hoping for a boy but I'll just tell them another girl would be great! We're not finding out before the birth so hopefully everyone will just fall in love with the baby, not the gender.

    Still can't believe people especially family can say such horrid things, I wouldnt swap any of my boys for a girl every child is individual and rightly so just ignore them and enjoy your pregnancy x x
