  • no its not bad. thats just what you want. as long as you will love your baby no matter what gender it is there is nothing wrong with you wanting a boy.

  • I wanted a boy. I got a girl, and I couldn't be happier!

    The day I found out, I realized that i was suppose to have a little girl :)

  • It's probably normal to have a preference. It's just not politically correct to say so. If you are a good mom you will fall in love with your baby no matter what his/her genitalia! None of that matters anymore when you meet your little one and no matter which one you have, you wouldn't trade him/her for anything or anybody. Plus, you can always try again for baby number 2!! :)

  • No, it's not bad at all. I think it's natural to want one sex more than the other. I wanted another son, but ended up with twin girls, lol. So I guess that's what I was meant to have. I was disappointed at first, but feel totally blessed now, and I'm sure you will too!

  • I think many times people have a preference, I did with my ds. I wanted a little girl but after I found out he was a boy I didn't care anymore and I can't imagine having it any other way!

  • I think it's normal . My husband and I really wanted a girl more than a boy and we lucked out to be preggy with a girl. But if it were a boy, I know we wouldn't have gotten over it rather quickly :)

  • No it's not bad. So long as you love your baby no matter whether it's a boy or girl in the end that's all that matters.

    Also if you add a year to your age and do the chinese gender predictor for that age then it's pretty accurate. Mine said I was having a boy and I am (:

  • I think it's completely normal to want one over the other but I know when you see the baby no matter which gender they are you'll love him or her. I think it's fun to try to figure out the gender. I can't wait to find out.
