I sympathise with you completely, and understand exactly what piggypops is saying, too!
I am now pregnant with my third, I already have one of each and it has caused me to make so many snappy remarks to others, including my own mum before I fell pregnant, I have always made it known that I wanted more then two children and that to me it doesn't matter what gender they are, however, everyone else thought I should be happy with the two I've got seeing as I had one of each, yet my brother has 2 girls and they are always being actively encouraged by the same people to have another to 'try for a boy' how bloody rude!! I don't care what I have, although I know that this one is another girl, it doesn't matter, I love my children for who they are not what they are, and my brother is the same, why should I stop at two because of their gender, in the same sense that why should he have more just because of their gender? Sorry for the rant, it makes me so cross! Especially as some of the people who pass comment are so flipping hypocritical, including my mother (4 children, I'm the eldest and only girl, my nan had 9 and only 2 girls!How come they didn't stop when they got the one of each gender they wanted?)
