Dealing with comments?

Carolyn

I was hoping to have a girl my second pregnancy as I don’t think we will be able to have another and I have a 2 year old son.

I’m having a second son and I’m a little sad but obviously happy to have my baby boy.

Struggling with other people’s attitude though. Already having the “oh never mind” type comments even though I didn’t tell people I had a preference. Things like “oh well maybe you will get your girl next time” next time? Not everyone can have it afford lots of babies. Nobody seems excited for another boy which doesn’t help, even my parents 😔 Like, he’s going to be a brand new person and just as important as if he was a girl?

Im also getting comments like “oh yeah I knew it would be a boy” and “at least you don’t have to buy any clothes” ..sounds stupid but I was actually looking forward to the chance to buy little girl clothes.

Just wish I knew what to say to make people think about the comments they are making as I was a little sad already and this is making me feel worse.
