  • Some people may just be mean spirited people, others may mean know harm in saying it.....but unless you call them out on it, they'll just keep saying it. Even if it's difficult to say it, just speak up for yourself and say "I want a baby girl, but if it's another boy I will be just as happy. But to throw it in my face hurts my feelings"

  • People are mean. Once you get past this you will live great in the world. Everyone told me I would never have a boy but I have a boy. Don't listen to what these ppl have to say especially now that your trying to get pregnant. Hugs. Keep trying You will get your girl.

  • Only God (or whatever higher power you believe in) knows what you will have next. Dont let the others burst your bubble. Hope you get your girl tho! :)

  • I think they might just be joking around with you...when I got pregnant again everyone asked me what I wanted...when I said a boy they told me I was having a girl...I would HOPE people arent that mean-spirited....try not to let it get you down mama only God can say what your going to have

  • I don't think they are meaning to be mean.. they are just joking around. I say it to people too and I joke about it when it comes to myself. I'm 31 weeks pregnant and have people ask me all the time if I'm having a boy or girl. they always get " Ugh, it's another BOY.. this will be number TWO.. *eye roll*" with a smile. It's really not that big of a deal with people to say that kinda stuff. Don't take it so hard.
