    I would love love love a boy first, because I know that Darling Husband really wants a boy. So I’d like to have one first, just so we can have our boy, and then whatever the rest of our children are is fine (as long as their healthy!). But I’d be fine with a girl first too, as long as she was followed at some point by a boy ๐Ÿ™‚

    It doesn’t matter to me but secretly I would want a girl first because Darling Husband wants boys.

    Darling Husband and I both want a girl first! Ideally, we would like one boy and one girl, but we have concluded that we definitely MUST have a girl. It would be nice to “get it done” first, lol.

    Also, I’ve always wanted a baby brother. I think it’s cute when the girl is the first born.

    I used to want a girl first, just to make sure I got one. But then I quickly realized that I don’t have a choice in what we have, and no matter what I’d be happy and excited.

    But I’m currently pregnant with my first, a girl.

    It truly does not matter as long as the baby is healthy.

    Although a tiny part of me wants to give my husband the first boy of his generation on his side of the family.

    There was just a thread started by Mrs Cheese last night with a ton of responses already. Although the poll on this one is nice.

    That’s the thing… I have kind of a paradox going on with that. I want my first baby to be a girl, but I also want my family to go boy first, then girls. So obviously that means I’d have to have a boy first… but I want my first child to be a girl! It doesn’t make any sense, but oh well.

    @PrncssDva:  I want a girl first because Darling Husband doesn’t want girls.  DH’s reasoning is because our baby will be a mixed baby, half asian-half white, and he’s seen a bunch of mix babies and that they are really attractive, and so he doesn’t want to worry about our girls.

    When we TTC our first child, we are not going to try anything to get a certain gender, so I’ll be happy with whatever.  But if we have a girl first, the Darling Husband will probably want to try techniques to get a boy next.  If we have a boy first, I’m not sure if the Darling Husband will want to try techniques to get a girl.

    I’m back and forth on it lol. I’ve always wanted a boy first, for the same reason that you have OP. Fiance wants a boy first for the same reason.
     
    However….FI’s family has had only boys for a long time. His dad is one of 8 and only 1 of his siblings is a girl. Fiance has all brothers (one stepsister but she’s not blood related). He has 1 girl cousin out of a lot of cousins and she is 17 and the last girl born in the family. There have been a lot of children born in the last few years and every single one has been a boy. So now I have this selfish desire to provide the first girl haha. Everyone is dying for a girl and I want it to be ours that breaks the cycle!! Our first child will also be my parent’s first grandchild and I know both of my parents would love it to be a girl.
     
    So we’ll see what happens and I’m sure we’ll be happy either way (once we start TTC….in like a year and a half lol).

    I want a boy first for the same reasons you posted but also, if I can only ending having one baby, I would kind of prefer a boy. I’ve always wanted a little dude ๐Ÿ™‚

    If I knew I would have one of each, boy then girl for the same reason.  We didn’t really care, though, since we want one of each…we got a boy, though.  Sometimes I really hope we have a girl next and other times I think it would just be so much easier to not have to buy new clothes, etc.   ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have always wanted a boy first, because I loved having a big brother. However, I also want a girl, so I would kind of want to have a girl first, just to “make sure I got one” like the previous poster said. My husband (who I thought would want all boys) said that he’d want a girl first. So now I don’t know what I want first!! But oh well… I pretty much have no say and will be happy with either a girl OR a boy… but it’s fun to discuss!
