  • I think we all have that idea of what would be the "perfect family" for some it's the "One of each" idea for others they just want a girl. If I could have picked I would have had all girls, but I couldn't and we had boys... Doesn't mean I love them less, just means it wasn't what I wanted...

  • So if I have 3 boys already, which I do, and I want a daughter it would be selfish to "try" for one? In my opinion it's not.

  • theyre messed up !

    to me , i know that we all have thought at one point or the other "oh ! i want a boy " oh ! id like to have a baby girl " etc , but to me is all about being able to have a baby of my own (because not every woman can so im lucky to say , that i am : ) ) and a baby that is healthy and happy will do it for me :) so thats all it matters !

  • I think it's ridiculous! I have a little boy and I have heard other moms say to me that they don't want a boy.. they only want girls and I think that is REALLY REALLY sad and pathetic! I would love my child no matter what!

  • In my case I have 2 boys and this next baby will be my last so I am gonna try for a girl if it comes out to be a boy that will be ok too I don't think it is selfish at all.

  • We're under a lot of pressure from my husband's family to have a boy to carry on the family name since there aren't any boys yet. I just found out I'm finally pregnant after more than 2 years of trying and I will be very happy either way. It would be great to have a boy, but it would also be great to have a third little girl in our family.

  • Why so wrong to wish for one sex over another?
