I made our announcement about the pregnancy and that he was a boy at the same time to everyone except family.
The way I did it no one could say anything negative because I had DS1 holding a sign with a huge grin saying he was going to have a little brother. It was adorable.
I still get asked if we are going to have any more but it's more out of curiosity than because they think we should try for a girl. As much as I'd love one I am happy for now with my boys.

I have a DS and hubby and I aren't finding out the sex of the new baby until it's born.
When I told my mum I was pregnant she said "oh, I hope you have a girl." I thought wtf? I don't give a $hit as long as the baby is healthy.
- My actual verbal response to mum : "what? I hope I have a boy because boys rock!".

We have 3 boys. Over the years some of the comments have been quite hurtful. The most recent one was from a service cashier "Gee, you really drew the short straw, didn't you?". Me, "Actually, no! My boys are so much fun". I wish I'd told her where to jam her opinion, but I walked away instead.
We didn't find out the sex of any of our babes. During my pregnancy with DS3, FIL would constantly refer to him as his grand-daughter. The thing for me was, there was no way I was going to let any one else's comments about their disappointment get to me.

Wow, people are ***.holes!!
I don't get it at all, has anyone ever had two boys or two girls that are the same anyway?! It's not like if you have two boys you get the same kid twice, they're still likely to be completely opposite, so why is there an attitude like it's repeating history??

we didn't find out the sex of either child prior to birth, but both MIL and her sister said comments along the lines of "oh what a shame you didn't get a boy". When my SIL had a girl then a boy my MIL called her clever for having a "pigeon pair". I wanted to slap her.

People are stupid. On the flip side I have a boy and a girl, I get told I shouldn't have any more children because I've got one of each.

Awwww that's terrible.
I have 2g 2b & bub is a boy. Maybe it's just my girls but seriously give me a house of boys any day, which is a bit weird coz I'm very much a girly girl.
I think it's the sooking, the drama, the cattiness that I don't cope well with.

Worst part is 5yr old DS1 heard and was upset and asked me what is wrong with boys.

Perhaps one of the only silver linings of ivf. People that know we have been through it are so damn happy that we finally have two beautiful girls they couldn't care less about their gender.
