Is there a gender that you didn't want? Like you only wanted boys, or only wanted girls?
Is it wrong to only want one particular sex? And if you did only want a certain sex, and you had one of the other, how was it?

I didn't want a girl at all. I got my wish and had both boys. ^_^ I don't think it's wrong as long as you aren't all upset or aborting because you didn't get the gender you want.

I wanted girls. I Cried when they said my first was a boy. I was 17 I doubt I'd cry now lol. I don't think it's wrong to prefer one sex over the other. I don't treat my son different or love him any less than my daughters.

DH and I wanted a girl for our first but would have been happy with a boy none the less.



We're at 5 girls and 1 boy now and don't care about gender what so ever at this point. The only thing that I can say I'd be a little happier having a boy about is so that Charlie isn't the only boy, and because we've had another boy name picked out forever but have serious trouble with girl names.

I always wanted a boy, but before I had DS I didn't really care so much. The older DS gets the less and less I want a girl. Like I really really don't want a girl. I wouldn't abort or anything but I'd probably consider adoption (TOTALLY KIDDING). I just don't know what I would do with a girl lol. Luckily same sex siblings run in my family so , fingers crossed!

I wanted a girl so bad with my first. When they told me he was a boy..I cried and cried because I just wanted a girl and felt like I wouldn't know what to do with a boy. Then I had him at 25 weeks and looking back I sometimes feel guilty for feeling that way when he fought so hard to live being born so early. Once I held him and seen him though..all those feeling's of not wanting a boy were gone. I loved him so much. With my second I still really wanted a girl, but was just hoping for a healthy baby. I did get my girl..and I love them both the same and I'm excited to have one of each gender. They are so close. I don't think it's "wrong" to want a certain gender..it's normal for some people to feel that way.
