This is sort of a modified thread on the question but I’d like to hear about your preference for the first or only child (God willing the child will be perfectly healthy and a joy to raise no matter the gender).
I’ll go first: Before getting married I always said I prefered a boy first. But now that we are actually going to be ttc soon, in my heart of hearts I really want a girl first!

I’d have to answer those seperately…If it was an ONLY child, DEFINITELY a girl. First child would be boy…though then with the 2nd child if it was another boy, I’d have to wonder to myself how many times I’d be willing to try for a girl lol

This is such a hard question! Idk, I cant decide on either!

@soontobemrsm11: That’s the thing. Since there’s no guarantee that the second would be a girl then I want a girl first! I’d be ok wtih 2 girls rather than 2 boys (although obviously I’d love my children no matter what)

Oh man, interesting question. I just had my DS, so if I were only to have one child, of course I’d pick him! But before getting pregnant, I would have said for my first child, if I were going to have another, I’d choose a boy (I think having an older brother can be awesome, even if it wasn’t/isn’t for me), but if I were only going to have one child, I would say no preference.
That said, I am pulling for a girl next. I just can’t wait to see DH as a daddy to a little girl (he’s awesome with our son, but I think the father-daughter relationship is completely unique and special).

No preferance… I wasn’t really sure I wanted a girl just because I am not a girly type of person. Yet, I have a daughter now and I love her to bits. I am going back and forth on having another. But it won’t be because I will be trying for a boy. Two is my max, no matter what.

I have always wanted a girl, no matter the number of children. My two younger sisters have 3 girls between them (the women overtake the men in my family, even though we all know that the sperm determines the sex of the baby). FI definitely wants a boy, although he hasn’t expressed a preference on whether the first child should be a boy. To appease the both of us (if that were possible), I would say girl first, then boy. One of each, lol! Of course, we would be blessed with any baby that is healthy.

We had a girl first. I had no preference.

Definitely a girl (: I really want a girl and we only want two kids so I think having the girl first would take any girl-pressures off the second pregnancy if that makes sense 😉

ooops i clicked boy but I definitely prefer a girl. Boys are just noise and dirt.

I’ve always wanted boy girl boy, but now that I’m actually pregnant and being honest I only want two kids and I’d prefer a boy then a girl. I know it’s cliche but I really think it’d be ideal. Obviously I’d be fine with whatever happens!

I feel like I’m a traitor to my gender to say this, but if I could pick I would have all boys!

I guess boy mainly because I’ve always seen myself as a mother of at least one boy. But honestly, I’m only 55% hoping for a boy first. I’ll be happy with whatever I get first, boy or girl!

I voted girl. I grew up in a family of all girls–even my cousins were all girls– and I honestly have no idea what to do with a boy! 😉

I voted boy – I grew up with only brothers, and I swear, EVERYONE in my family has boys first, including all of my cousins! Not that I wouldn’t love a girl too – I just see myself having a boy first. Who knows! 🙂
