Anyone else worried about family gender biases?

I think that most of our family (with the exception of my dad who told my sis and I that we were only ever going to have girls and is right so far) is probably hoping for a boy but no one has mentioned their bias to me yet. For dh and I whatever shows up will be perfect, we have 2 girls so another girl will be easy and a boy would be a new and interesting challenge.

My husband and I have two biological children together (both boys) he also adopted my daughter (now 14 yrs old) from my previous marriage...I also have 2 sons from that same previous marriage who are older (21 and 19) whom he did not yes, I have 5 children, 4 boys, 1 say I don't want a girl this go around would be a lie. This will be it for us either way, and truly the most important thing is that we have a healthy baby, but a girl sure would be nice too :)

I have one girl and would love one of each, and I just don't know about doing this again. I would love a boy and I think DH wants a boy but I will be happy either way. A healthy baby is all I want. :smileyhappy:
