If you could pick what gender would you want the baby you are ttc to be? Obviously we all want the baby to be healthy but does anyone have a preference? What about your SO/DH?

I don't have a consistent preference. Some days I would like a boy because we already have a girl but other days I think about how much girl clothing we have that was hardly worn...then I think about how it would be fun to buy boy stuff...lol. I truly would be happy with either sex...DH says "as long as the baby is healthy" too but I think he secretly wants a boy.

A girl. We are trying to sway for a girl. We have 3 boys and while we love boys, both of us feel that little pinch that our family needs a girl. Silly? Probably. Either way, if we are given another boy, we would love him just as much as our other 3.

But my husband draws the line at dressing them up. I can get away with the long hair, but no dresses

I don't think that's silly! What are you doing to sway for a girl?

I go back and forth, but my DH wants a girl! I would also love a girl because I have 8 nephews and she'd be the first grand daughter talk about spoiled!!
A boy would be fine too..my husband would love teaching him how to hunt, fish, and play soccer... But I guess you can do all those things with a girl too!

We are hoping for a boy. We have a little girl already, and DH wants a boy to play football with. I selfishly would like another girl, BUT since DH wants a boy I want one too because I know how having that little mini-me is so special.

We are just doing timing. I've looked into the diets, but that is far more than I want to put into it haha. I don't want to alter what I've done for myself this past year.

I used to think I wanted a girl since we have 2 boys but now I don't really care anymore. We only have about a 50% chance to conceive without IVF so I will be so thankful for any baby.

First and foremost I want a sticky that leads to a healthy baby But as far as gender goes GIRL all the way DH is an only child and his parents never had a baby girl to spoil They always say that I am the daughter they wanted but was never blessed to give birth to

DH wants a girl but he thinks with his genes a boy is in order for us. His father's family is ALL BOYS... and his mother's side has about even. My family is pretty much a mixture as well. It seems that it skips a generation. My Dad's generation was all boys and those boys had all girls. Now all their girls are having boys... and so forth...

Me I just got whacked with the infertility stick up and down lol I just want to have a nice long healthy pregnancy
