I think it's safe to say that we all would be happy with a healthy baby regardless of sex, but if given the choice would you prefer having a boy or girl first? Which do you prefer to have first?GirlBoy

Now that there are a few responses, what made you choose boy or girl first? Does you family makeup or your birth order have anything to do with it?

I voted for a girl first. I already have my girl's name picked out and it's a family name so I don't want anyone taking it! :smileysurprised: I always thought I wanted a boy first because I secretly wanted a big brother growing up. lol

I chose boy first. I always said I wanted a girl more than anything and I still do but I'd love a son too. I'd like to have a boy first to be the big brother, and I just think boys seem to bond a little more with their moms. I also think it would be so cute to see DH with a son being able to pass on his love of sports and taking him to games. My DH's family is all boys so I have a fear that I might never get a girl but you never know! I will be happy with whatever I have. It changes weekly so who knows if the survey showed up next week I might have said girl lol!

Confession here - I used to say If I don't have a girl for my first I will cry.

lol I definitely have to laugh at some of the things we've tried just to get pg in general, but I have a feeling DH would think I'd completely lost it if we tried for a certain sex. But I hear you about having the girl first...I just gotta claim that name!

I have always wanted a boy first because I grew up with all girls!! I always wanted a brother. Also I have 2 stepkids and my stepson it much easier that stepdaughter lol. I also had foster kids and my favorite were 2 twin boys that I just fell in love with!
