Umm WTF?

Okay so i'm a proud momma to a darling little almost 17 month old daughter and ready to pop in 4 weeks or less with a darling little son. :) My first has been an amazingly easy going little one, slept through the night early, not picky and rarely fussy, she's a very good girl and i do feel blessed with her. But the comments i've been getting from my friends and family and mostly my mother are driving me crazy. Basically damming me with a satan child in a matter of words. "count on him never sleeping though the night." "count on him being the opposite of your daughter." "be prepared for a tantrum thrower because he's a boy. " "I guarentee you he'll be your worst nightmare since you had such an easy first." Like WTF? I think my easy going personality might have a chance to rub off on my son like it has my daughter but i'm not just ASSUMING that he's going to be perfect, but i also am not just ASSUMING for the worst. A little balance please, sheesh! anyone else delt with these obnoxious kind of comments?

I had quite a few before our baby girl was born. Essentially her birthday was turning by some into a dooms-day. It turned out to be quite the opposite. We do get bad days, but they are rare and far apart (about 3-4so far) and I think a 4 week old is entitled to those just as much as grown ups. I suggested that all those panic merchants go to hell :-)

My mother has made the same predictions for both of my boys, after my daughter was a super-easy baby. My boys have both been fairy easy babies as well. Every kiddo is different, but having had an easy baby doesn't guarantee the next one (or any future ones) will be difficult babies.

LOL YES!! I had that all the time when I was pregnant with my second! People were telling me my son was a "sucker baby" because he was so good, he suckered me into having more and my daughter would be a devil baby or something.

Just for what it's worth...she slept through the night at 6 weeks and was extremely easygoing as well. I just had my third (and final!) baby 4 months ago and she is sleeping through the night and mostly easygoing as well, so...you probably already know this, but ignore those people!

And for the record, I have NO idea how I lucked out because I am very high anxiety and NOT easygoing (but I'm working on it)!

People need to mind their own business. Why pregnancy is a state where people feel the need to say something and that something is usually negative I have no idea. This is why I think three times before saying anything to my pregnant friends.
