I actually had to talk to DH about this a couple weeks ago. I was realizing I wanted a boy just so that he'd be happy, because he'd always make comments here or there about wanting a boy. It really made me sad and guilty, thinking that if we had a little girl she wouldn't be as wanted or something. I know that's not the case, but that's how it made me feel. I demonstrated the ways that he said these things so that he could hear them from my perspective - i don't think he realized he was doing it. He listened and replied thoughtfully and I know now in my heart he won't make these comments again. He hasn't. And that it's ok to want a boy, or a girl, but to not be disparaging about it - it's natural to have a preference!
