If you could choose the sex of your next child.....would you?

Have you ever wanted a boy/girl, and got the opposite? If it was offered to you for FREE to choose the sex of the baby, would you?

  • I would have to say if given the choice I would want a girl. Only because I have three charming little boys and am tired of hotwheels.

  • Yes, but not because of any personal reason for me or my DH. We already have one of each and my son is 14 and my daughter is 10. Because of the age differences involved at this point, I would want it to be a girl, rather than have two sons 14 (actually if I were pregnant now 15) years apart.

  • Yes, because my husband really wants a son.

  • NO!! I love the surprise, I'm happy with either...I already have 1 boy and we're TTC, and I don't care what gender we have next :)

  • NOPE! We have 3 boys all ready, and we are glad for each of them. We are ttc # 4 and will be happy with whatever we have. All children are a blessing and it doesn't matter what sex they are.

  • I feel the same way anon 28 does. I wanted a girl I got a boy and didn't think I would know what to do with him. But now we're ttc #2 and I want another boy! But I wouldn't choose if I could I like the suprise. There's nothing like that 16 to 20 week u/s that tells you what you're having (if you decide you wanna know that is)
