I know from experience that even a baby that isn't healthy is still an amazing blessing...in some ways even more special than the healthy ones...
Perfect! I love this!

Re: We don't even care if it's healthy

We're expecting our fourth boy, and get those annoying comments all.the.time. It's especially annoying when people say things like aw, another boy?! or you were hoping for a girl, though, right? in front of my boys.

But congrats on your baby girl, mama!!

Re: We don't even care if it's healthy

Luckily my girls aren't old enough to get hurt feelings from the 'oh, you want a boy this time' comments but still, I just wish people would stop cheapening our little girls! No, we do not love her any less or wish to change her into a boy! I'm glad you all understand, it's just hard not to come back with sarcastically rude comments when people insist that we must have wanted/been trying for a boy!

Re: We don't even care if it's healthy

I am getting this like crazy lately. We have twin girls so the two comments we always get from family, friends and strangers are "Are you hoping for a boy?" and "Are you sure there is only ONE in there?" I am getting SO sick of it. I finally just posted on Facebook a month ago, "We would love another girl and the doc checked several times, there is ONE baby in mama!" That stopped my friends and family for now but I got the boy comments twice in one shopping trip today.

Re: We don't even care if it's healthy

I got this alot too. I had 2 girls then "got my boy" So everyone wanted to know if we were done. Nope I'm due here real soon with another girl
Now I did really want a boy so I was thrilled when we had him, but that does not mean my girls are loved less or that we are done. DH and I are already talking about #5

Re: We don't even care if it's healthy

Congrats! We have 3 girls too and I can't go anywhere without someone asking if we were "gonna try for a boy". At first I kind of laughed it off but now I usually say. "why would we, the in a row is a jackpot". It really bothers me when they say something in front of the kids, I grew up in a 3 girl household too and remember my parents being asked all the time as well.

Re: We don't even care if it's healthy

I'm sick of that too. Right now all I want is a live baby, forget whatever gender! Oh and people telling me that this baby *HAS* to be a girl? Yeah, well, I've heard that before and 5 boys says no. I love my kids, all boys is fine, a girl is fine too, just stop assuming my life can't be complete if I don't have one of each!

Okay, rant over, congrats on your baby girl 3 sisters is magical and awesome and I hope they become the best of friends.

Congrats on your baby girl! We have had 5 girls and I am THRILLED we have all girls and I don't care if we ever have a boy (DH says we are done though). We get the boy comment ALL THE TIME. And if we are done or having more. It's annoying.
