I wished for a girl with my first. I wanted a cute little girl to dress in pink frilly clothes and do girlie things with. But i ended up with three boys. I am happy they are healthy because really thats all that matters in life.

I was wanting a baby girl really bad. I didn't find out till I had him what I had and I can tell you no matter how bad I wanted a girl all that dissapearred as soon as I seen my little boy...I wouldn't trade him for anything. Three babies later and I still haven't had my girl and now I can't have no more kids due to medical problems, which is really sad, but I wouldn't trade any of my boys for the world!

there is always a hope for you to hold on. you dont have to feel sad about what is going onto you. that kids you are taking care are one of kind gifts that you ever receive and i do believe. if you can have a baby girl perhaps your baby boys can gave it soon. there is always a hope.

My fiance and I don't have any children. But we want children. However they are not in the cards for us right now. But when the time does come we just hope and wish that we have a healthy. It really doesn't matter if it is a girl or a boy. However the fiance would like to have a boy first. I just hope whatever it is we have is healthy.

We are not rushing in to having a baby right now. Because it not being in our cards right now is because of medical reasons.

When I was pregnant, I wanted to have a girl, I had chosen only a girls name and I had not even considered having a boy. I didn’t buy anything pink or any girly things, I mainly bought white/yellow/green clothes for my baby just in case I was wrong. When people asked me what I wanted my baby to be, I answered honestly with this “I would prefer a girl, but I don’t care really as long as it is happy and healthy. I gave birth to my SON on 28th August 1998, he was a happy and healthy child and so I was a happy mother, regardless that he wasn’t a girl.

we always made a choice about having a first baby but in the end we take it back and then replace to " no matter what, either girl or boy as long as it is healthy i will be thankful and that was a parents pray". as i said earlier boy was born talented from the birth you take care of him and teach him the best that you can and he will be your strength.

When I was pregnant for the first time I didn't mind if I had a boy or a girl. The hospital had the policy not to tell the gender. I had a boy and now he is 13 years old. I had a long gap and then got pregnant for the second time. I really hoped I was having a girl and went for a gender scan at 16 weeks pregnancy. I was so sad when I was told I was having a boy. I got used to the idea and then I found out at 36 weeks pregnancy he has spina bifida. He is now 18 months old. I would dearly love to have a daughter one day.

maybe if can have a girl perhaps your son can gave some but lets not lost your faith you can still have and i wished for that you wished would be granted. spina bifida have no idea? anyway i wished for your family's happiness.

I always wanted to have a little baby boy and I guess I got what I wished for. Anyway, had my baby been a girl, I would still love her as much as I love my baby boy. As parents, we should never discriminate when it comes to our children. Children are blessings from God and they deserved to be loved. :)

I just "knew" as soon as i'd found out i was pregant with my first that she was going to be a girl. my second I hoped for a boy to have one of each. no luck a girl -- my husband knew as soon as we found out i was pregant she'd be a girl. no complaints first and foremost they were heathly and secondly beautiful.I wouldn't change them in the world.

For my fiance and I who comes first really doesn't matter to us. So long as we have one boy and one girl we'll be dandy. The most kids we will have is 3 because I personally just don't want to go through that more than once. I do however want to know what it is ahead of time so that babyshower gifts can be bought accordingly and so I can spend some of my maternity leave decorating according to gender

When people were asking me this question when I was pregnant, I always answered that it didn't matter to me so long as the baby's healthy. Secretly though, I was hoping for a girl. Well, that's what we got and we were over the moon. In retrospect though, had we gotten a boy, I wouldn't have felt disappointed at all. I'd still have been over the moon. :)

a gift can never tell until it was been open. you know what, when i got my first baby i didn't know it was a boy or girl because the position of my baby was unable to determine by the scan but i am happy because my baby was alive and healthy.

When I first conceived 34 years ago, I didnt remember that I ever wishes for a girl or a boy, what i wished then was for my baby to be healthy and normal. I think all parents, though mostly have their own gender preferences, in general wish for a healthy child without deformities.

i do wish also for their baby's healthy then the second was their prepare gender that it would be granted.

In my place having a boy is a priority because the boy will be carry family name, take care the house, involve in social community. it is usual that some family have until six girl until have a boy.But some family have until five boy until they get a girl. For me for my first baby i will accept what ever it would be given to me, just like you of course as long as the baby is normal,healthy. For second child, depend on the first if the first a boy then i wish a girl.
• Philippines

yup you are right that boy is the one that carry the family name. but no matter who what it could be we should be thankful. hope that you can have both a girl and a boy as you wish for.

Well I want a baby girl first just because everyone wants baby boy. why is it so? why does everyone want a baby boy. are daughters just so unwanted that they have to second. are girls of no importance here?

Having a baby is very importance for humankind to keep they existed,Boy and girl is same importance, but it will different if you born in some place that the culture need the boy to become most important, like in my place, Even how high the girl achieve education or career. Her must under her husband, to take care child, family.

I must admit that I wanted a boy when we found out that we were pregnant. My spouse and I wanted a boy. Our wish too was granted a healthy baby boy. Then we wanted a girl next and that would have been it. We were blessed with another boy and the 3rd was a baby girl. That is it for us. We wanted the boy first because we wanted someone to be able to look out for the rest of them. The little girl looks like she is going to be the one to look out for the both of them. LOL

When I was having my first born, I just knew somehow that it would be a boy even before the ultrasound results came out. I don't know but I just think that it would be ideal for the first born to be a boy so that he is the big brother and he will take care of the younger kids, sort of look out for them and stuff. My second also is a boy, he is now three and I can say that sometimes they get along well and there are times I know that he (the older one is 6) gets impatient or irritated by the younger one which I think is only natural as they are both boys and boys do tend to fight a lot. I also just recently gave birth to a baby girl (thank GOD!) who I know is dearly loved by her older brothers. Sorry to go way off topic but I can't help but talk about my little angels!

Hmmmm.. I'm not yet married and I have really not thought on these lines. But then I need a minimum of dozen around me I like girl babies. I've always felt so proud being a gal. And one true reason why I like gal babies is that we can dress them up beautifully Anyways,babies are always cute be it a boy or gal. Anything is god's gift and will accept it happily

about having a child and that you choose girl. you know is know as the sweetest angel in the family

I am no parent yet but I would love to be one soon. My husband and I was once discussing about what child we'd like to have first. Well as for me I would like it to be a boy so that he will be the big brother whol would protect his younger siblings. But my husband would like a baby girl. Its quite hard to agreed though but after a while, we just realized that we cant just pick a child its with the good Lord to decide. Its funny but ist really true that we husband and wife sometimes argued about this thing not knowing that we cant really decide for it. Its like a gift which you dont know unless you unwrap it.

you were right it is a gift. but often on a gift that was given to us we do guess what's inside and sometimes wish for what was inside. no matter whats inside of and when you do settle and have a family i wish you a happy and strong bonding family.
