I need suggestions on how to tell my mother to back off, but in a nice way. I am 27 weeks pregnant with my second son, and she has been convinced this entire time that we are having a girl.
We recently have gone to a 3D ultrasound, and it was confirmed in 3D there was a penis on my child!
Apparently she went to a Psychic, and she has told her that there is an arrival of a girl in September (my due date is in September).
We are just happy to be able to be pregnant after three years of infertility and finally conceiving on treatments. We were hoping towards a little girl, but we are thankful to be able to have another child at all. For the first couple weeks I had struggled with knowing the gender for a couple different reasons:
1) because our first son is Autistic (Autistic rate rises in male siblings), and
2) it would have been nice to experience life with a little girl as well. Everyone in our families said it "felt" like a girl so we kinda jumped the gun with our expectations.
Now I am getting kinda perturbed. I am adjusting well to the idea of adding another energetic boy to our family, and it makes me frustrated and stressed out that she is still convinced it is a girl. I don't want to leave one shred of doubt in my mind that it is a boy. I don't want it to affect my bonding process with her trying to convince me it still could be a girl.
She is really into the whole "Horoscope/ Taro Card" thing, so I feel like this will really convince her.. and I just don't want to hear it.
How can I tell her to piss off without hurting her feelings?
Any advice will help.
