I'll take what I can get, lol. I've always thought about a boy first though. I have no boys in my immediate family. I wasn't around little boys growing up. Hubby would love either gender, but a son to play tonka trucks, legos, and superman with would really touch his heart.

I think I would be very happy with either but I would prefer a girl first. There's honestly no reason why I've just always felt my first born would be a girl.

I was thinking about this the other day... I want a girl but really either would be great. I figured that it's like the difference between winning a million dollars or winning 1.25 million dollars. ;)

The only real reason I'd like a girl first is because my sister has a son and is pregnant with another boy and my brother has two boys and they are having another (don't know which yet) and it would be kind of nice to have the first granddaughter!

I always thought it would be nice to have a boy first, then a girl. Right now though I just want a healthy baby. I know for sure that I want 2 boys and 2 girls. Most likely will not happen, but with God's help I would like to at least have my set-1 boy, 1 girl. And then dh and I can adopt another boy and another girl :) And then I'll be satisfied. :mrgreen:

Baby girl, allll the way!

Don't get me wrong - I'll be grateful for any real, live, take-home baby we're fortunate to get, but I want a girl. DH wants to name a boy after him, but I've never liked juniors. He and I have been around and around about it. In the interest of keeping the peace, a girl would be easier. ;)

I really want either.. doesnt matter as long as I have my BFP!!!!

But I think secretly I want a girl.. Everytime I have a dream about having a baby its always a girl.. and it took me the loooooongest time to even think up a name for a boy
Ive always had Amelia Mae picked out as a name for a girl for years and years but I could never think up a boy name
But last year after my favorite comedian (George Carlin) died.. it came to me in a dream that I should name my baby boy "Carlin"
I swear I wasnt even thinking about the subject but this voice just told me in a dream that "You should name him Carlin" plain as day. So weird but I LOVE that name for a boy after I thought about it

So I guess it doesnt matter, as long as I have a healthy baby we will be happy as pie!!

To tell the truth I've never decided if I'd want a boy or girl first. The ONLY reason(s) I would prefer to have a girl first is because if I had a boy I'd be dreading the circumsion thing because if I do have a boy I want him to be circumcized. Also, my MIL says my DH says Dennis the Menace doesn't have anything on my Dh! LOL But right now I'd say a little girl would be nice since DH's sister had her DD in October...I'd probably get those cute hand me downs lol or if my brothers wife has a boy I'd get her stuff.

We would be happy with either but we're kind of hoping to have a boy first. No freinds or family has had a boy yet and it would be pretty cool to be the first. Plus I have older brothers who looked out for me growing up and DH is an older brother to a younger sister as well so we want to carry on the tradition, lol.

DH wants a boy and is always saying that he's "putting in his order" for a boy. I have to remind him that his little spermies determine the gender so it's all on him. LoL

I always wanted a boy first if I had to choose. But I have a neice that is amazing and it makes me think a girl would be super nice too!
