While you may have hoped for a boy, you must remember that you are bringing a new life into this world. A baby is a baby, regardless of gender, and a healthy child is always worth celebrating. Of course people are going to congratulate you because it is a wonderful thing to be having a baby. Most people would not automatically assume that you would be disappointed because of the gender of your baby.
I have three girls, and while I did hope for my third to be a boy, my youngest is the absolute love and joy of our lives. I could not live without her, and I thank god that she was not a boy. I truly believe that sometimes we end up with what we need, not necessarily with what we thought we want. Good luck.
