When someone callls you to tell you that they just found out they are having a girl the first words out of your mouth should not be "Oh, I was hoping you would have a boy".

Ooh (*winces*) so not what they should have said... Well I for one am thrilled you're having a girl (although a boy would have been wonderful as well) and all that matters is that you have a healthy and happy pregnancy. Don't let it get you down. x

We got that, too, only in reverse (with Christopher). Stupid, stupid people.
Congratulations on a healthy baby, girl OR boy!

That would seem like a no-brainer. Sheesh.

Oy. Some people just don't think before they speak.

That is insane. It reminds me of the time my friend told her coworker she was having a girl, and her coworker then said to her "I knew you were having a girl, since they take away your beauty." So to sum up: people are assy at times. I agree with Candacej; congratulations are in order for a healthy baby (either gender) and mom.

That's why you shouldn't tell people. They'll do the same when you tell them what names you've picked out.

Cases like this point out the need for proxy slappers.

I've done several postings on "What NOT to Say to a Pregnant Chick." Wait till you share names. Unfortunately, it doesn't stop there because one day you'll take him to the mall and someone will say "Shouldn't he have a hat on?" (um, inside the mall??) Anyway, you get what I'm saying...I hope

My friends were actually discussing how much they don't really want a boy during my shower for my soon to be born son. Oh how cute girl stuff is and they would just DIE if they had a boy! Bitches.
