My DH and I have a DS who is almost two and when I was pregnant with him my parents said they didn't want to know the gender. We wanted to find out.....this meant that we had to keep the gender a secret from everybody. It was so annoying last time that we have already told them that this time we are telling them and everyone else.
I am currently pregnant and my Dad is still going on about not wanting to know. I have told him we are telling him and everyone else. He thinks he can just not be there when I tell my mum and that he won't find out. I would rather have the opportunity to tell him myself than for him to hear it from some other family member or family friend. It is so frustrating, I got upset last night as I feel like he is sucking the joy out of us being able to announce the news....
My sister sent me a text the other day telling me not to tell her the gender either as she doesn't want to know as she wants the surprise. I told her too bad we are telling and the reason why and all her response was, fair enough....
Anyone else been in this same situation that can offer some advice?
I had major drama with my sister last pregnancy as I got pregnant not long after her (our bubs were 3 weeks apart) she stopped speaking to me as I stole her thunder announcing that I was pregnant too a few weeks after we found out...sorry but both of us had been trying for a while...she had been trying for two years and I had been trying for over 18 months...hardly did it on purpose I thought she would have been excited about going through pregnancy together but nope! It needed to be all about her!
I told my mum last night I don't need the drama after last time!
Not sure what to do 😩
