I was talking with some other moms that have all the same gender for their children, and we talked about how other people tend to act like your family is incomplete, or you are a failure because you are missing out having the other gender.  

How do you confront these types of reactions?  Does it put added stress on TTC as you are swaying for gender?

I think I feel incomplete, I just get the 'are you gonna go for the girl'.  I think anyone, myself included, pictures the ideal family with both genders.
