Re: Whatever happened to "Congratulations"?
I agree completely. I, too, am pregnant with #5 and the reactions are similar to yours. I think that people assume that once you have "your boy and girl", etc. that a person is "done". We had 3 girls in a row then a boy for #4 and people were like (and still are for that matter) "oh, you FINALLY got your boy" as if I wasn't happy with just my girls ro would have been disapointed with another girl. Unfortunately we live in a very selfish society...at least that's the only explanation I can come up with. If they are not the ones who will be paying for and raising the child(ren) why should they care how many we have!
CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU!!!! EVERY child is a blessing!
