When you tell friends and family that you are expecting again, sometimes their reaction can be predictable, while other times some mums can be left feeling pretty shocked.
 
Here are 11 things you are likely to hear when you announce you are expecting again:
 
"Wow, you’ll have two kids to handle"
Just in case you couldn’t add, or that you forgot you already had a child.
 
"You might finally have a boy/girl"
Why are other people hoping that you are having a boy/girl? 
 
"It will be so much harder with two kids"
This is probably the last thing you want to hear, but people will say it to you. Just to reiterate the fact that two kids are more work than one – as if you hadn’t already guessed that.
 
"Nobody will want to babysit two kids"
Probably, not but being told you have to say goodbye to your social life, just because you ae having another child doesn’t seem fair, right?
 
"But you just lost your baby weight from your last pregnancy"
Hopefully, no one outside your family will say this to you.
 
"Was it planned?"
This is usually said if it is your third child. Are they after a detailed report of your sex life?
