    We have a boy already, so it would be nice if this one is a girl, to have one of each.  But I am okay either way.  I think my husband is scared to have a girl lol.

    DH says he is slightly leaning towards a boy first, since he thinks like you it would be great to have a boy and then a girl.

    I WAS leaning toward girl slightly, but the further I get the less I care. All the little kids I like are boys anyway, but girls would be super fun! I am good with either!

    No preference! Though I’ve been “feeling” boy from the start and we seem to have an easier time thinking of boy’s names. I will be thrilled with either and we are firmly Team Green, waiting until we meet the baby for the first time to find out the sex.

    No preference here, but I had weird girl vibes from the beginning!

    @SweetMelissa429:  DH has never had a preference. I always wanted a boy first. Then I got pregnant, and we all thought it was a girl so I warmed up to the idea to having a girl. I was in love with girl clothes, toys, everything.

    Then my 20 week u/s came, and surprise! It was a boy! So I guess it is safe to say we would have been happy either way. Boy is what I initially wanted before I even got pregnant and then I wanted a girl because that’s what I thought I was having, and now it is back to boy.

    Ultimately I wouldn’t have made a big stink about either gender. I just wanted a health ybaby, and this kid is so that’s all that matters 🙂

    I have always dreamed of having a little girl, but now that I’m preggo and it’s actually baking in there, the more I think about it…a little boy would be SO much fun! Like you, as long as it’s healthy I will be over the moon with either!

    DH on the other hand really wants a boy, and is sure it will be. But I know if it’s a little girl then he is going to fall head over heels with the quickness!!

    We didn’t care, but it’s funny… alongside all the excitement and happiness, I did feel this little sense of something akin to grief, right after we found out the gender. Like, my thought process was, “It’s a girl! I’m going to have a daughter! Now I know that that will be one of the things that happens to me before I die… but I also wanted to have a son. What if this is my only baby!? What if I never have a son!?” And then I sort of mourned this hypothetical son I might hypothetically never have, lol. Hormones, I tell ya…

    We’re hoping for a boy but we wouldn’t be disappointed with a girl.  I have all sisters and I am not a girly girl so it would be nice to raise a rough and tumble boy.  The thought of princesses and frilly dresses and such terrify me a bit.

    With the first pregnancy, we really didn’t have a preference.  I kind of thought it would be cool to have a boy, no prom dresses or high heels or drama.  Since we didn’t have any strong opinions either way, we decided not to find out until birth.

    BabyDane is a girl!

    Now I’m expecting another baby, and while it would be cool to have one of each, not having to buy anything new would be cool too.

    We don’t have a preference this time either, and we haven’t decided if we’ll be finding out the gender or not.

    Hubby and both sets of parents are firmly team girl. I am the only one thats team boy. Just cause my male dog is my little one and I want a non-furry version of him!

    @SweetMelissa429:  I felt this same way after we got pregnant, that I could go either way, and I tried hard to stay neutral.

    And then we found out it was a boy, and I was excited, but I had a realization that subconsciously even though I was preparing myself for either, I was still imagining girl things in my future without really realizing it.

    We will love our little boy to death and I’m starting to love him more and more every day, especially the more he wiggles around, but it took some gettig used to the idea when we found out it REALLY Is a boy

    I really really wanted a boy first, and was kind of disappointed when we found out we were having a girl, TBH. Then my SIL had a girl three months before our daughter was born and I LOVE that they get to grow up together. For the second, I thought I really wanted a boy again, but I would love to see two little girls growing up together. Plus, we have so many adorable girl clothes that I’d love to use them again. 😉 So either. Hope to have 3 or 4, and now seeing how much I adore my baby, I really don’t care anymore!
