I’m not pregnant but if I were, I’d want a girl. Nothing against boy babies, it just seems like a girl would be more fun. After the first child, I would have no preference either way. I just really want the first to be a girl!

My Fiance said the same thing about a girl growing up to be promiscuous. He’s also convinced our future daughter will get knocked up at 15. I can’t understand the thought process behind that.

ETA: I like when people state their hope for the baby’s gender. It’s not like you’re saying you wouldn’t love the baby if it were a boy or that you’d abandon it somewhere. You’d just prefer a girl. Nothing wrong with that.

I think it’s OK to say you prefer one over the other for whatever reason.

To be completely honest we are both TRULY happy if we have a baby that’s healthy.

But. I can’t say I’m not 60/40 leaning towards boys because my husband’s side has not had a single boy yet. So I would love to give his side their first boy of this generation. ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S. Having been blessed five times as a aunt, 3 of whom are girls I have to say baby girl stuff are sooooo much cuter!!

My husband wanted a boy too but as soon as he saw her during the ultrasound he stopped caring and just got very sappy over having a baby at all. On a side note I read somewhere that mother nature knows men have a harder time connecting with baby girls so they often share more physical features so daddy can see himself in her and bond with her easier.

I wanted a girl.  When we had our 19 week ultrasound and were told it was a boy, before I could say anything, my husband leaned into my vision and said “I’m sorry.  I know you really wanted a girl.”  I thought it was sweet that he cared so much about what I wanted even though he wanted a boy.  Now that I have my LO, I wouldn’t change a thing but I needed those months to wrap my mind around having a boy so I was prepared.  I didn’t want to be disappointed and I just needed the adjustment period.

Haha, do all men use that, “Girls will be difficult when they are teenagers” bit? Mine is using it too! He actually had me pretty nervous for a while, but I know ultimately, I don’t really care. I’d honestly like at least one of each. I can’t wait to find out either, but I think we get our 16 week ultrasound next week, hopefully, they haven’t done an ultrasound yet, so they better do one this time! Have fun!

Eh, I said I didn’t care, but it turns out that when they told us we were having a boy, I realized I’d been hoping for a girl ๐Ÿ™‚   (DH wanted a girl too- he’s from an extended family of ALL boys and said if he could pick, he’d probably want two daughters. Oh well!)

They have a nice take on the whole “I don’t care what it is, as long as it’s healthy!” line. ๐Ÿ™‚

YES! I totally want a girl, have my entire life.  To balance that out I am trying to only plan boy names (mind you I’m not actually PG yet).

I’m not preggers yet but I hope my first is a boy.  Both my husband and I come from the exact same family dynamic: two kids, older brother, younger sister.  So I’m just used to the idea of a boy being the oldest.  My ideal line up would be two boys then a girl.  Hubs and I have kind of decided if our first two are one of each then we’ll stop, and if they are two of the same we’ll try one more time.

both me and hubs really want a girl. i’m a little worried how we’ll feel if its ends up a boy and i feel guilty for even having a preference. and all the old wives tales so far as pointing toward boy. of course i really want  happy, healthy baby but my brother already has 3 boys and my entire family is wanting a girl. also, my hubs is asian and there are certain duties and expectations if the first born is a boy and we’d kinda prefer our baby not having to deal with that.

I’m not 100% sure what LO means but I read it as “little one”

I’m not pregnant but I want a little girl sooo bad when we decide to have kids. So does my honey…probably bc we’re destined for boys (our families are pretty male dominant). If I found out I was having a boy though I think all of a sudden my mind would probably shift, and start thinking about all the wonderful boy things, and I’d wonder why I even wanted a girl in the first place lol.

Oh my…I’m not even pregnant yet, and I think that I would CRY if I found out I was having a boy. FH and I want a girl SO BAD. (And we only want one child, and he doesn’t want to adopt, and his family is all boys…ahh!)

Besides, boys grow up to be assholes — I’d rather have a “sexually-empowered” daughter than a jerk son any day. (ETA: I know that a lot of it is in the parenting, but gah, I do not want a boy!)
