I wish people would understand its my choice to tell them what im having when I want!! My mom knows that i know, she calls me every day and asks what im having. I tell her the same thing. I will tell you when im ready. I wanted it to be a surprise but people are starting to take the fun out of surprising them. Gah i might as well post it on FB. Then they would be pissed that i didnt tell them first... Can i just em and move on lol
We're waiting until birth to find out the sex, and it's making me crabby all the prodding by people. They act like I'm doing them a personal disservice. Really, it just pisses me off. My baby. My choice. I'm starting to get a devious glee from hearing them whine though.
Nothing will change once they know the sex. So why the big deal? It'll still be a baby!

I know exactly how you feel. It's like everyone thinks they have some sort of ownership and investment in the details of your pregnancy, the gender and the name of your kid!! It drives me batty. My SIL in particular acts like my part in my own kids doesn't exist. When she's around my DD she talks non-stop about how her every feature is from her side of the family. "She has my laugh." "Her hair is the same color as mine." "She has the same eyes as me and grandpa." Sometimes I just want to jump on her and strangle her. DH doesn't even understand my frustrations with it.
Sorry I kinda went off there. I was going to go even further, but I'll hold the rest for another time, since I could go on for days! I do wish that other people would realize and accept that when it all comes down to it, it's non of their business!!
Shew, didn't mean to go off like that! They just really get to me.
As for the gender revealing, that would really annoy me if people kept doing that. I would think they would be real excited for the anticipation of finding out! Honestly, part of me wants to wait til birth to find out but DH said no lol. Only because supposedly this is our last one and it would be nice to be a surprise. But at the same time I'm soooo excited to find out because so many people ask me ha ha. If we already had one of each I think I would wait.
My mom is excited and wanting to know (probably to shop lol) but it's funny because my Grandma isn't sure she wants to know! When I told her we were planning on finding out the sex of the baby she goes "Really? I wouldn't want to know!" ha ha. But then again both of her kids were surprises as were my siblings and me (4 of us!)
Some people are different. I know this one couple who were going to find out the sex and they put it on FB and they seriously had like 50 people comment "Team blue or pink? Boy or girl? Did you find out? Tell us! Don't keep us hanging!" and all I could think about was "What if they don't want to tell you?" Ha ha. Same thing happened with another friend of mine who wouldn't tell the name of the baby. People were upset they didn't know until he was born!
I dunno, it's annoying that a bunch of people think it's their business I guess. Hopefully your mom will stop bothering you and just be excited that another grandbaby (girl!) is joining the family!

That is annoying. Especially when it makes it no fun anymore.
I'm gearing up for people doing the non stop prodding about not finding out the sex.

Geez... that is soo frustrating!! I can understand needing to come here and let off some steam.
We are lucky that here you have to have a private ultrasound and pay approx. 300$ to find out the gender, so we aren't the minority not finding out, and have a good excuse (I wouldn't find out even if it were free...)
