    I want lots and lots of boys.  Maybe one girl.

    We have one girl and one boy, and we’ll probably have one more; neither of us have a preference, though.  We both wanted a mix, and so far, it’s been really fun having both a boy and a girl!

    I have a son already and am 25 weeks pregnant with baby #2 we decided not to find out our LO’s gender so it will be a surprise. Honestly I would be thrilled either way. A girl would be alot of fun but I also love the bond I have with my son so another son would be great to.

    We’re only planning the one we’re having, and we’re Team Green so we don’t know the gender. I’m really really torn about whether I want this baby to be a boy or girl. On one hand, there hasn’t been a female McBebe born in 75 years, I’m in love with little girl clothes–tutus and ruffled butt bathing suits and big flower headbands…but cute little girls turn into teenagers…

    On the other hand, because the McK’s have had a long string of boys I’ve spent a lot of time with them. They’re high energy and like to play rough, but I also love seeing the relationships they have with their mothers…and not even just the little ones, but also the relationship that DH and his brothers have with their mom. 

    DH wants McBebe to be a girl, but he also doesn’t want to break the boy tradition. 

    I think we really will be thrilled either way!

    I’d love to experience having a boy and a girl. We’re going to have one and then see how we feel, though ;-). I think there’s advantages and disadvantages to both, parenting-wise, so it all works out in the end!

    IF we ever have kids, which is up in the air, we want one of each. My DH’s family is just him and a sister and it seems like it works out nicely.

    I would love to have one of each. I have a feeling that we’ll end up with boys though, and that’s okay, as long as one of them at least thinks mommy is cool? I’ll be a little sad, I admit, if I don’t get to have the relationship with a daughter that my mom and I have, but I’ll get over it. I really don’t want more than 2 kids.

    I would like healthy children. Don’t care about the gender.

    I really have no preference. I’m not pregnant, so this may change, but it doesn’t matter. I’m even leaning towards not finding out the gender, when/if we do have children.

    Off topic a bit, but girls run in my family and boys run in FI’s family, so I’d be interested to see which will prevail!

    I just want one of each, but FI’s mom keeps telling me to just have boys. I can’t exactly help what we end up having, but, um, she keeps telling me that “girls are hard.” I don’t know how she would know, since she only has two sons.

    Before we had our DD, I was convinced we’d have a boy. DH’s family is ALL BOYS. There hasn’t been a girl born for 78 years…so when we had a girl, I was (pleasantly) shocked!

    Deep down I always wanted a little girl, but never thought it would happen.

    I do hope we have a boy next. I really want one of each…but either way, I’ll be very happy 🙂 We’re going to stop at 2 kids!

    I have 2 girls now.  If I could be sure I’d have another girl I might want another baby.  The possibility that it might be a boy makes me think we will stop at just the two.  No boys for me!

    @Mrs Sarah McK: Eep! I think I’m hoping you have a girl just because it’s been so many years of all boys! She would have soo many protective cousins over her!

     

    DH wants only one, and doesn’t care either way what we have. If we can’t try for at least two, I don’t want any so we’ve agreed to try for two max. I’m scared I won’t know what to do with a boy since I’m such a girly girl, but will be blessed with whatever we get!

    @BetterSherm:  Well, since the male is the sole determinant of gender in baby making, if it is genetic looks like boys are likely! But I’m not even sure if it’s been officially proven that it’s genetic anyway. So interesting when you see families with so many of one- a friend of mine is one of 5 girls. They stopped trying for a boy eventually, haha.
