Re: oh no! another girl???? you must be so upset!

CONGRATS on the girl!!! I grew up in a family of 4 girls and LOVED it!! We're going to TTC #5 sooner than later and right now we have 1 dd and 3 ds's and everyone is like "Oh you're going to go for another girl, right? " I'm like "No... we're going for a baby!" Sure I'ld love for dd to have a sister but I love my boys just as much... it really doesn't matter to us!

Re: oh no! another girl???? you must be so upset!

Not too many people gave me grief about #2 being a girl, but this is my fear for #3 (when and if it happens). Children are blessings, no matter what the gender! I wish I had a witty comeback for you!

Re: oh no! another girl???? you must be so upset!

I'm so glad that people KNOW better than to say this to me! Some did ask me what I wanted, boy or girl. I always looked at them and said, "We're hoping for healthy" and that usually shut them up. We take NOTHING for granted over here and we'd gladly accept ANY BABY God gives us!!!

I'm sorry you are having to endure such stupidity!!

Maybe get a shirt that says, "Pink and proud" or "Mama of girly girls" or something like that.

Re: oh no! another girl???? you must be so upset!

I have 3 girls and I will admit I was a little disheartened when I found out #3 was a girl. I wanted a boy after 2 girls. Doesn't mean I love her any less. I just had #4 and he is the light of my life. The comment that pissed me off worse than that is "are you going to try for a boy?" We are given what we can handle and so be it, it was 3 girls all 15 months apart!

Just take everything with a grain of salt. People are apathetic to others feelings. You are happy and that is all that matters.

Re: oh no! another girl???? you must be so upset!

I got this a lot with having 4 boys. I still get it now that I have twin girls. People always make comments like "You must be so happy to have girls now". I AM happy, but I would have been just as thrilled with 2 more boys!! My boys hear these comments and I can only imagine what they feel. It feels like such a put-down, even though I know that isn't the intention.

Hugs to you! YOU know how much you love your babies, and that's all that matters.

Re: oh no! another girl???? you must be so upset!

After I had Bryton, practically the NEXT DAY people were asking me if we were going to "try for a girl." Okay, first of all, I JUST GAVE BIRTH...I'm not "trying" for anything, thank you. Secondly, can you just be happy that we just had a healthy baby boy instead of talking about us "trying for a girl" in the future? Seriously.

The things people say are just unbelievable sometimes.

The other one I hate is "are you done now?" Is it really anyones concern whether I have 20 kids?

Re: oh no! another girl???? you must be so upset!

I totally understand. I'm pregnant with my 4th (I have 3 girls), and I keep getting "trying for a boy, aye?" Um no, we are having a baby. We don't care if it's a boy or a girl. Above all else, we are hoping for healthy. I'm with you. I don't know what I do with a boy!

I'm sorry, mama! We had 4 girls and then a boy, and people just assumed we'd "quit" now that we got a boy! Lame....
