I think your “unique situation” has nothing to do with which sex most women would want their child to be. I think most women just want a healthy baby and if there is a preference, it isn’t so that they can have all the attention of having “the first grandson”. I find it pretty sad that someone would be disappointed to have a girl over some sort of family competition.
I’m a woman expecting my first child. I guess I’ve always pictured myself having a boy first because I always wanted an older brother growing up. That said, I’ll be ecstatic no matter what sex our baby ends up being.

I don’t know how other women would feel, but for me I didn’t really care either way. We have all girls in our family, so naturally my family was leaning towards wanting a boy when my pregnancy was announced, but I don’t really give a shit what my family wants or doesn’t want so my preference (or lack there of) wasn’t impacted.
We found out at around 16 weeks that I am having a HEALTHY baby girl and I couldn’t be more excited! When I was first pregnant I was carrying twins, but one of them never developed. The fact that Baby A is healthy and striving was (and still is) my main concern, ESPECIALLY after loosing Baby B. The sex of the baby really seems trivial.

the only social pressure i could see when it comes to the first born is wanting to carry on a last name, so yeah i could see boys being slightly more favored in that sense. When i got pregnant, i was just thrilled to be pregnant after 2 years of trying, i truly didnt care what sex it was.
