    Only people who are not stupid. Both of my girls are IVF and MIL still said through my entire second pregnancy "oh you couldn't be lucky enough to get a boy could you", and then the comments in my post above.

    Worst part is 5yr old DS1 heard and was upset and asked me what is wrong with boys.
    Isn't that disgraceful! The mentality of 'you poor thing' sh!ts me, our children are blessings regardless of their sex.

    You know what else....I'd love a daughter one day, but if that never happened I wouldn't be devastated. However, with people often pointing out that I don't have one, it makes my heart ache a little. Also, already having three sons, and a DF who is not so keen for another child will make it a bit difficult to see whether theres a daughter waiting in the wings

    My MIL was similar and said in an ideal world we would have a boy. She obviously has no clue what it was like in our world dealing with the possibility of never having children.
    She bought a few 'neutral' things for DD2 before she was born and they are mostly blue.

    Yes, but not with this pregnancy. We found out a few weeks ago that we're expecting another boy which we're over the moon about (we would be fine with another girl too). We have 2 girls and a boy already so it even things out..but with past pregnancies I did have a few people say "oh well, better luck next time" sort of thing. As long as baby is ok and all that, then gender shouldn't really matter and people should keep their silly, unwanted comments to themselves.

    We have 3 daughters and I've had this a lot as well. My 3rd daughter, no one came to the hospital except my husband because it was just another girl
    Heartbreaking! I'm grateful to be even able to have children, so whatever I'm meant to get, is what I'm happy with. Wouldn't change my princesses for anything!
    If I get asked one more time"when are you going to try for a boy" I'll probably punch the person in the face! Hahahahaha! Enough already! Be happy with what you have

    I still get it now, we are well and truly finished having children, but almost every day I get these "poor you" type comments, "of course you'll try for a girl". Um, no - I have been blessed with 4 beautiful children - gender means nothing, absolutely nothing at all to me - I consider myself very lucky.

    People are just so strange sometimes!

I couldn't believe the reactions we were getting and wished we'd not even told them! Why not be pleased that we were able to have another baby rather than focusing solely on the sex of it??

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    When I had my DS 3 I had people ask me when they saw him, 'So are you going to try again for a girl?' No congratulations or anything. Very rude.
