Is anyone hoping for a specific gender?

I know that the most important thing to wish for is a healthy baby, but that doesn't mean a girl can't dream, lol!  I'd like to have a boy this time around, we have a dd.  I feel stupid or ashmaned to say this IRL though.  People tend to be pretty critical if you have a choice.   What would you like to have?

There is nothing wrong with having a preference! I have one friend who has 3 girls and REALLY wanted a boy, and she IS having a boy! I have another friend with 3 boys who has REALLY REALLY wanted a girl for a while, well baby number 4 is another boy!  I'm pretty sure it's the last for both of them. And they will both love theri babies regardless :)

I have a DD and a DS, so I can honestly say I do not have a preference.

We are honestly really hoping for boy this time. I think we have had our minds set on the fact that we would just have a boy, so if we do have a girl we will be a little sad, but healthy is what is most important
