  • No, I don't think it works like that. I'm Catholic and I just don't think that God micromanages all that much.

  • Yes, I do! very much so! I was meant to only have 1 child and a boy at that. I'm not emotional enough to have a girl. My mom had my sister at 16 and had me at 18. She got pregnant with a boy & lost him when she was 20. My dad said he would be too hard on a boy as well. I'm not religious at all, but I do believe you had what you are meant to have.

  • Me personally.

    No,I do not believe that.  Sperm dictates the gender of a child. So I believe we get whatever gender we get based on what chromosome the little spremie that could was carrying..

  • no, i think the sperm decides that, and only the sperm. and i am a religious person.

  • I'm an atheist and I know it all depends on what chromosome the lucky sperm is carrying.

  • No I don't. It depends on the sperm plain and simple.

  • I'm not a religious person, but I think sometimes it is "fate". I have wanted boys so bad from my first pregnancy, and we are currently on our third it makes me wonder how different things would have been if I had boys or if I would be able to handle boys as I have been able to handle my girls.

  • I believe God chooses the gender. If God created us and the act of sex then yes. I'm Christian though, so that's my opinion.
