If you could choose the sex of your baby, would you do it?

I went with my aunt who is trying to conceive to her latest appointment. She's about to go through IVF and needed to have a final checkup. Anyway, she'd been really nervous about the IVF coming up so, to allay her fears about IVF, the doctor said, "Don't worry. We have everything down to such a science now that you can choose the color of your baby's eyes and the sex of the baby!" He's such a kidder that she immediately started laughing. He sat there looking at her with such a straight face for so long, however, that she asked, "Really?" The doctor lost it then, laughed and said, "No, but we're getting there. Now, feet up." LOL

If you had the ability to choose whether you'd have a boy or a girl, would you made the choice? What would you choose and why?

Well first I would choose a boy (which I got). Then I'd choose a girl. I don't care about eye color or anything else like that.

I wouldn't pick the gender. Dh and I disagree so it wouldn't be fair.

Im not gonna lie.  Yes i would have all girls.  I have 2 girls now, they are twins.  I was SO happy when i found out.  I just dont "feel" like a mom of boys.  Ive felt that way my whole life.

I would have with my 2nd but now that he is here I know I would have made a huge mistake... I had 3 boys trying for a girl but my boys are my world now!

Yes I would, no question. I wanted a girl, I would be trying my hardest to get pregnant again if I was guaranteed a girl. Don't get me wrong, I love my boy more than anything in this world and I would not trade him for anything. But if I had a second child, hands down I would want a girl, and I would deliberately pick it if the opportunity was given to me.
