I'm in my 20's and everyone around me is having babies. I love it. Its exciting, i get excited for them. I'll even jokingly guess what the baby might be based on old wives tales, sick all the time it's a girl, round belly its a boy, crave sweets its a girl, you know.

I've noticed sometimes people are offended when you guess it to be a girl, because they want a boy!

The only people ive noticed who actually hope for girls are people who already have one or more boys.

Whats the deal?

Personally i didn't care what my first was, although i sort of wanted a boy because i had a big brother and well i wanted my kids to have a big brother too. I told hubby if we had a boy first i want a girl second, and if we have a girl first i want a girl second.... we have a girl, and i want another. but I've heard on more than one occasion "Are you going to try for a boy!?"Really.... try for a boy... like i didn't get it right the first time??? If i have another girl are you going to ask me the same question?

Have you noticed this too?

Whats the reasoning ladies? why did you only want boys? or rather why DONT you want girls?

I wanted a boy but i'm glad i got  a girl. Little boys and little girls are so diffrent from eachother.

I've always wanted a girl, i was thrilled when they told me it was a boy because at that point i did not care of the sex of my baby, i just wanted him to be healthy and come fast so i could cuddle him crazy!!
Boys,girls,twins, alien who cares a baby is precious regardless of the sex.

I have 3 boys and never preferred one sex or the other. We were told it was a girl on ultrasound with our third and when we got a surprise boy at delivery everyone thought I would be disappointed....the doctor and nurses even pushed for my to change my mind about the tubal ligation they were doing during my c section so we could "try again" ....that always irritated me. We planned 3 kids and we got 3 kids. The fact that they were all boys is not an issue and we were not about to alter our life plans because of it.

They don't want to raise girls because they know they'll be little bitches just like them. I don't have to worry about that lol. I was never a mean girl and the only reason my mom and I fought was because she didn't like my independence and that I could think for myself.

I wanted a boy first. I got him. Then I wanted a girl. Had another boy. I wanted a girl for the third time. Got another boy. So we quit trying & I got fixed.

Most people I know wanted a boy first to watch out for his little sister then wanted their girl.
