I JUST announced my pregnancy at church today and at least half a dozen people said they hope/are praying we're having a girl (our first is a boy). One person actually said because "then you'll have the perfect family".
My family will be perfect if the child is a boy too, thank you very much!
People aren't saying much about "was it planned". I wish they would so I could give them the correct answer, but they're assuming this pregnancy was an "oops" because DS is only 3 months old. We weren't preventing and were open to having another little one at any time God thought best, including immediately if that happened. After trying 3 years for DS, I'm thrilled to have another on the way without any waiting.
I agree that people need to stop talking to pregnant women.
BTW, it made me happy to see this post. I told DH how annoying all the comments are and he thought I was being silly. He isn't bothered by that stuff so it's nice to "talk" to other people who understand.
