    Sending you a big hug, I don't know why people think it is ok to make such awful comments! I know just what you mean about wanting the baby to be special regardless, that has been one of my biggest fears too and I have been pleasantly surprised by some people since we announced we were having another boy but of course I have still had hurtful comments too.
    All of our children are a blessing regardless of gender, and regardless of whether we dream of one gender or another. It doesn't mean our babies are any less loved or precious to us.

    I have my fingers firmly crossed that you hear girl but I have a feeling the comments will wind you up regardless and you will probably get oh thank goodness it is a girl etc.

    Ignore the nasty comments, these people aren't worth spending any of your time thinking about. xx

    Lassie, can't wait to hear what you are having...but I agree, people can be so insensitive!!!

    It amazed me just moments ago I brought some new professional pics in to to work to change out my pics, and all the pics are lying on my desk, some really cute ones of DS1 and 2 hugging...(omg it is so cute, I can't wait to show ya'll!) but anyway, so a student picks up my pile of pictures, without asking, and flips through them quickly, bypassing my sons hurriedly. When she gets to the pic of my daughter in her lavish dress, she says "Oh I bet you are so glad you got the girl."

    This comment makes me see RED! Obviously I am very happy I got "the girl", but getting her takes nothing away from my sons....sorry for the vent, but even if you do hear girl, Lassie, be prepared for people trying to undermine your son in favor of your girl.

    Good luck!!! I still hope you hear girl, but you know if you hear boy, we will all be here to support and celebrate his amazing little life with you!!

    and cravingsalt, as I read thru your first post I skipped down for some reason to the quoation and I honestly thought to myself "hmmm that sounds so familiar...where I have read that before?" ROFL it's my own words...and I had to go back up to the top of your post and when I read my name...I was like "duh, you dummy...you said that" haha! Ahh, but it warms my heart that the things that I say on here help or offer any insight...I really love all of ya'll so much and I get warm and fuzzy being here with everyone.

    Hahahaa! Yup, I'm quoting you. Certain things really stick and that one was one of them. One day, if I ever get pregnant, I'm going to have the little auroara nugget of wisdom in the back of my head keeping things in perspective.

    Thought I'd give you all an update

    I bit the bullet and decided to tell my co workers.

    I figured why should I hide his gender like some shameful secret just because they are ignorant and hurtful. He is my son. I love him. And I'm ferociously protective of him already. So I told them all its a boy, and then the "oh dears" and "I'm sorry's" started rolling in. So I just told them I was actually overjoyed, that there was nothing to be sorry for because I am so proud of the fact that I have another son growing inside me, I have a happy, healthy baby growing inside of me, and anyone who can't see the joy in that needs to be sorry for themselves, not for me.
    I really don't know where that came from, because I am the quiet submissive type, but not only did they believe it, but it put an end to all their commentary. One of them even apologised!
    So my advice to anyone having trouble with comments is to stick it to them firmly, let them see that you are proud and in love (fake it till you make it if you have to) and it shuts them up.

    all in all I think I am doing ok. I am truly head over heels in love, he is mine, a creation that me and the man that I love made together, I wouldn't swap him, even though he is still in utero, I wouldn't swap him. This little soul chose us, and I'm embracing the miracle of life. I can't change that he has a penis, the only thing I can change is how I react to it. It's entirely my choice wether I choose to be sad and disappointed, or wether I choose to accept it and love him for who he is, my son. I keep playing that in my head, and it honestly makes it so much easier to smile, and so much easier to push to the back of my mind the desire for pink. All this little man wants is to be loved, just love, and I can give him that, I might not be able to give him the best toys, the best books, the best gadgets, but I can give him the best of my love, and I will do exactly that.
