You know, I think that some people just get it into their heads that they’ll have a boy or a girl first. In my head, I’ve always imagined boy then girl. But I know I’ll be just as happy with a girl! At least he apologized for being whiny. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Mia’s a really pretty name, by the way!

i think it a basic instinct for men to want a son but im glad he since apologized to you because that really could have put you in an emotional spot at the time.

when my brothers wife was pregnant the entire side of our family was willing it to be a girl because we already had alot of boys by that time and thankfully she was.

me – im kinda old fashion, i like the idea of not finding out until after the baby is born

usually im not patient but i like the idea of it being a surprised.  same with names, i believe you need to look at the baby first to decide on the name although having a list of preferred names is good

my only niece was suppose to be stephanie (i was uggghhh because of our last name) and i get to the hospital and i get handed a child and im told here is rebecca.  fabulous i thought but where is stephanie and they said she didnt look like a stephanie, she looked like a rebecca and they were right

Haha, Bee wanted a girl and so I was actually rooting for a girl because she would have been so happy.  We even had a genetic test done in Chinatown (never again), and they said the baby was a girl!  But it turned out that doctor was a quack and the test was wrong.

When we found out we were having a boy, I was excited because if we had two girls…  I’d be outnumbered (even our two cats are girls). But most of all, I just wanted a healthy baby… I didn’t really care about the gender.

Since we had Charlie, I’ve learned that it’s easier to change boy’s diapers since there’s less chance anything can go back inside.  So now I’m all for two boys!  Just kidding honey… a boy and a girl would be perfect. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think Mr. DG secretly wanted a boy.  Before our CVS I told him that boys usually are more attached to their mamas while girls are usually daddy’s little girls, and he was instantly more than happy with the outcome!

Now he’s talking about when we adopt and how it should be another girl!  This one’s already got her dad wrapped around her little finger!

heheheeh – Mr Bee rooting for a girl… ummm, rooting down here means something very different to the aussies Mr Bee ๐Ÿ™‚

as an aunt, yeah – much easier with boys.  i can have 3 boys fed, cleaned, dressed and in the car in the time it took me to get negotiations happening with the only niece on what tutu and handbag was required for the days outing.  in my head, if we ever have children i always imagine a boy

Mr Bee, Mr T has a fate different than yours — he KNEW it would be a girl specifically because it’s his destiny to be outnumbered!  In addition to wife and now daughter, we have a female dog and 3 female cats.  He has to make do with our one weird boy cat.  I’ve promised that our next dog, at least, can be a boy….

I don’t have kids yet, but this reminded me of my cousin. Her husband told her from the moment that they found out that she was pregnant that it was a boy. She kept telling him that there was a 50/50 shot and he was just so certain that it was a boy. Eventually he actually convinced her it was a boy. So when she found out she was having a girl, she cried (though to be honest in the first and 2nd trimester her hormones hit her hard and if anyone looked at her cross she broke out in tears) And her hubs was sad. It took him (and her) about a week for it soak in. My aunt (her mom) went out and bought the baby it’s first item of clothing, the cutest green and pink baby bathing suit she could find and then it’s like my cousin was ok. Her hubs wrote a note to the baby and tacked it up on her door from about 16wks on (they found out at 15wks due to the fact that her collegues stuck her up under a US any chance they got- she worked Labor&Delivery in a hospital at the time) it said that even though he thought that she was a boy to begin with that he was glad that she was coming and couldn’t wait to meet her and how she already had him wrapped around her pinky before she even got here. It was really sweet and now she’s the biggest daddies girl you can find for a 10month old and he would no doubt do anything in the world for that little girl.

We haven’t found out the gender yet but are hoping to within the next 2 weeks. I also think that at some point, the man is wishing for a baby boy. Heck, my hubs seriously thinks we are having a boy. While we were dating he would say, the Roddys only make boys.

What makes his statement so interesting is that the last Roddy girl was created over 50 years ago. Talk about the odds. This is why his comments makes sense. He always says to me he hopes I am not disappointed if we have a baby girl which honestly I am not. I think he may be trying to convince himself.

I am OK with whatever gender our babies will be now and in the future. However, I would like to have at least 1 girl because Mr. Bee, I am the reverse situation. I am surrounded by males, my hubs, my live-in Father-In-Law and our male poochie. If I am blessed with all boys, I told my hubs that he must allow me to “freak out” once in a while since I will have no one who from the female perspective. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope to have all boys, and everyone keeps saying that the more I say that the more I am destined to have girls.  Boys are so much easier than girls, and as long as I can keep having girl dogs, I would be ok with it
