    Not pregnant or ttc at the moment, but I’d quite like to have a boy next. We’ve already got two girls, and I’d like to have at least one of the other gender, just to have the full experience. If we ended up with another girl, though, it would be handy for the hand-me-downs!

    Darling Husband and I both REALLY want a girl. Like bad. I’ll be honest and say we will definitely have some gender disappointment if we have a boy. But I’ve also been trying to really get used to the idea that we might have a boy since there’s a 50% chance we will. And it doesn’t seem as terrible as it used to. They do say there’s nothing like a relationship between boys and their mamas!

    I have always pictured myself having a girl and I superstitiously think I will have a girl (I got my BFP on 1/1, which was my grandmother’s birthday, and my EDD is either 9/13 or 9/17 and in my family all the girls were born on odd days and the boys on even days…) I am trying so hard to force myself to think that there’s a 50% chance it will be a boy, but I know I will be *slightly* disappointed.

    That said, my husband and I were tossing around hypotheticals and he asked me if I’d rather have 4 girls or 4 boys (there’s no way we’re having 4 kids) and I said 4 boys. A pack of boys would be awfully fun. I just want one girl in there ๐Ÿ™‚

    Not pregnant yet, but Darling Husband wants our first to be a girl. I honestly don’t have a preference- though boy names have been much easier to agree on than girl names thus far.

    @SweetMelissa429:  I really (really, really, really) want a girl. Darling Husband says he would prefer a boy but I don’t think he really cares. We even tried Shettles Method for a girl as well. That being said his family is very strong with the boys so if we end up with a boy I wouldn’t be too shocked. I would have some gender disappointment but really it wouldn’t be a big deal. I am more excited that our baby is healthy and incredibly low risk for any issues (found out today).

    We had our NT U/S today and the lady thought she might have seen boy parts but then recanted and said she couldn’t be at all sure what she saw thanks to crossed legs, bouncing baby and the cord. So my fingers are still crossed!

    @SweetMelissa429:  I used to REALLY wants boys (i’ve got lots of brothers and boy cousins and just feel I relate better to them) however in the last few years i’ve grown really fond of the idea of having a girl.. i’m really close with my mum and i’d love to experience that with my own daughter (plus i’m a really girly girl so id love to have another girl around!). I’d definitely like one of each, but I don’t mind in which order!

    My Fiance says he doesn’t mind either way but I think he’d secretly love a boy ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have 3 boys in my house (husband and two dogs) so I’d like a little girl but would be completely content with a boy.

    @SweetMelissa429:  We already have a boy so I wanted a girl. Fiance wanted another boy. We are having a boy :P.

    Darling Husband and I are both rooting for our own gender/sex (I hope it’s a girl, he hopes it’s a boy). I think we’ll both be happy no matter what, but I did tell him to be prepared if I am disappointed for a few days if it turns out to be a boy. Hey, it happens! And we’re only planning for the one baby total, so whichever way it goes, one of us will not get a mini-me.

    Although if it is a boy, I’m imagining a boy just like Darling Husband, and I think that kid would be awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

    We already know what we are having (a girl!!) but honestly all we care about is whether we have a living breathing baby or not.  I would be just as ecstatic if it was a boy as I am knowing it’s a girl.  lol

    I used to be REALLY into having a girl. I would still love a girl.

    But every since my nephew was born (who looks just like my Darling Husband by the way, and is ADORABLE) I have experienced how sweet little boys are too!

    So I’ll be OK with either…

    The only thing that keeps me itching for a girl a little more is that I would love to name her after my Mom.

    Not TTC until next year, but Fiance and I want both so that’s not really an issue. I want a boy first desperately, my PARENTS want a girl first, and I don’t think Fiance cares. Well… maybe he would like a boy first.

    My husband gave the typical “as long as it’s healthy” answer but I know he would love a boy. He’s very into sports so he would love to have a son. I would love a girl because I can dress her up and play with Barbies and makeup and then she can turn around and throw a football with dad. It’s the best of both worlds. I can’t really put makeup and dresses on a boy lol.

    But I’m sure I’ll be happy either way ๐Ÿ™‚
