We have a son and a baby on the way, but its too early to determine sex. Both my brother and sister have had a boy first, then girls. Because of this, they have all assumed I am having a girl. They also keep saying stuff about how I am carrying ( I'm barely even showing!!!) how the fact that I have more morning sickness this time around means its a girl, and all the other old wives tales. Then, if we do tell everyone it IS a girl, they are all going to crow "We were right, we were right!!" as if I had somehow disagreed with them when I said that the conditions of the pregnancy mean absolutely NOTHING! Every pregnancy is different, the conditions don't mean squat! I almost hope we are having a boy, just to make them eat their words and prove them all wrong about the old wives tales (even though we would really like a girl this time around). Does this drive anyone else crazy?

I agree with you. When I became pregnant the second time, my Dad kept pestering me & saying loudly in front of relatives & friends that I better name the baby after him since he knows it's going to be a boy! I would cringe because I felt bad for my DH about naming the child after my Dad & not his. So I figured I would choose another name altogether as not to offend anyone. I got so nervous about this It was actually causing me unnecessary stress! Well low & behold! It's going to be a girl!!! YEA!! So I get to actually choose the name I want & my dad stops pestering me. Whew! Relatives can be a real pain! Oh BTW it's NOT your hormones, it's your relatives! LOL!

No, I think its fun. You are pregnant for such a short time, although it doesn't seem like it when its happening, lol, that any of that type of attention was fun for me. I loved it all. I agree with the first poster, I think you are hormonal, or have much bigger problems with these people than you are stating here. I mean, to wish you were having a boy just so you can say they were wrong is a bit odd, no? Let them have fun and be GRATEFUL that they care about you and the new baby.
