I'm having boy #2, and have had a few "are you hoping its a girl?" comments. I'm actually super happy it's another boy, I've always wanted 2 boys.
So I just come back with something ridiculous like "I'm just hoping it's a baby and I haven't just been eating too many donuts!".
People just seem to be obsessed by this idea of having the pigeon pair. When really there are soooo many benefits of having all the same sex - its cheaper for one thing! Gotta love being able to hand down all the clothes!
We are 12w with #3. I've had 9 MC and praying all is ok and we get a healthy baby at the end. Paranoid we are tempting fate, being greedy, asking for more than we deserve by having a third.
Harmony results back today are low risk thank heavens. And we didn't find out the gender because it's irrelevant. Everyone is so shocked we didnt find out.
Funnily enough i think a third girl would fit jn easier and have 9000 items of shoes and clothes to inherit lol.
I have two girls and frequently have people say "oh wouldn't your husband like a boy?". If we went for a third I wouldn't care what the sex would be, although I'd secretly love another girl lol, but it wouldn't worry me, and it doesn't worry my husband as our eldest is pretty much a tomboy and goes surfing with him, building and everything.
Yes, why do people always assume that the DH/DP wants a boy when they actually don't care. When a boy is born you always hear people saying 'oh, the dad must be so proud'. What wrong with a girl? Why don't thy say 'oh the mum must be so proud when a girl is born'?
I have a DD and am 10wks pregnant and we will not be finding out the gender. I am not fussed either way (I did want a girl first) and I know DH will be just as happy with another girl or a boy. Me too!
I hate to go against the grain but I think people often want to make conversation and don't mean to offend. Unless you are dealing with people who usually are rude??
