  • No. I just wanted a healthy baby and I was blessed with healthy babies with all three pregnancies.

  • I'm ashamed to say that I really wasn't quite so secret about it. I thought I had wanted a boy and did the gender determination test (which is crap BTW), and everything told me boy. Until the ultrasound. I wouldn't trade my beautiful princess for anything in the world, and I couldn't even imagine anything differently or be any happier. I think it's okay to wish for something, especially in this case, because you won't be disappointed no matter what you get!!

  • I wanted another girl, but was blessed with an amazing little boy! Truthfully, I was a bit disappointed when I found out he was a boy, but that sure didn't last long! :)

  • i've wanted a boy with all of my pregnancies and I'm pregnant again (makes my 4th baby & last pregnancy) and i think this is my chance to get my boy! I love my girls to death don't get me wrong, but I grew up with just a sister and i always wanted a brother so i guess that carried on to me wanting a brother for my kids!

  • A boy, because I didn't think I would know what to do with a girly-girl. I got a girly-girl, and I don't know what to do with her. LOL
