I believer both mother and father love them children. They look after them children. But when it comes to father, he likes to have daughter. And he loves daughter than son. Mother likes to have son and she loves son than daughter. As well as son likes his mother than father. Daughter loves his father than mother. In my case i like to have daughter first, being a male. What is your idea, if you are male or female? Is there relation with parent love with gender?

Even when I was still young, I always wanted to have a daughter as a child. I don't know why I feel that way. Maybe it is because me and my siblings are all females and that to have a son, a male in the family would be new thing for us. Thank God that now, He had given me a daughter. She is very lovable because she is such a charming baby who immediately gives her smile whenever someone talks to her. She is such my wonderful blessing!

I also need to know whether your daughter is in the picture?. we need to be satisfied what we have. Otherwise it will make problem. I like your way of thinking.

Whatever God will give me I will accept. It doesn't matter what gender your child is. What is important is that you teach them good values and they will be great children.

I am lucky enough to have both. I dont recall ever really wanting either one more than the other. After I had my 1st son and got pregnant I was hoping it was a girl but it wasnt. We were ok with that. But then there was the 3rd time and I again hoped it was a girl and it was. I have the mommas boys and the little miss and both are great. As far as which one is easier...neither! lol.

I have a baby girl who is 18 months old and I am due to have a son in August. I only ever wanted a healthy baby. Gender did not matter to me. I would feel blessed no matter what and their is no love like being a parent and holding your child. It is truly amazing.

I don't think it matters when your child is actually born. When I hasd my first child I wanted a girl but when I had a boy instead I didn't care. Now I have one of each and I love them both the same. So does my husband. I think it depends more on personality than gender.

Most couples that plan to have two children would like a boy and a girl in whichever order. If a couple is Chinese they would like one boy and in India the couple would like their first born to be a boy. I always wanted a girl and then a boy but I got a boy who is now a teenager and another boy who is a toddler son. I am currently 24 weeks pregnant and am expecting I will have a girl because that I found out during an ultrasound scan. I think that each person just wants a healthy baby. A man would be pleased if his wife has a boy and a lady would be pleased with either gender.

When I was pregnant for the first time, I prayed for a little boy with blue eyes. I knew I wanted three children. I wanted two boys and a little girl. I wanted my oldest to be a boy, my youngest to be a boy and I wanted my middle child to be a girl. I did get a boy as my oldest, a boy as my youngest, but then I also ended up with four girls in the middle. Oh yes, my oldest boy was the only one that was born with blue eyes just like mine.

Now we are living at the twentith - century, and we still discuss which gender we prefer to be our children. Don't you find it ridiculous? Didn't we always taught that women are equal to men. So, what is the big deal whether we have daughter or son for our next generation or not? Best option, we all have one son, and one daughter, make the number even.

With my first pregnancy I really wanted a girl. I figured that a girl would be so much more fun than a boy to dress up and buy pretty clothes for, and out all my girlhood wants and desires that my parents wouldn't let me do. Haha. I did get my girl! And I lived it up with her! That girl has so many barbies, and girlie clothes, she has whatever is the lastest for kids to like nowdays (for her its all about highschool musical!) Haha, then with my second pregnancy I wanted a boy. I was obsessed with wanting a boy. A lady stopped me one day and she asked me what I was having. I said that I didn't know yet. 'You want a boy, don't you?' I said yes. She smiled 'Women in love always want a boy.' She walked on leaving me to ponder that thought... but I think it's true! Women tend to not have that much faith in men, because we get trampled on and screwed over by them time and time again. But, as soon as we fall in love it's like if we have a good guy and have a son by him, we are insuring that there is another good guy in the future for some lucky girl! Haha. I ended up having another girl, which was okay by me. Her daddy was obbsessed with her. Haha, he had huge plans for making a mechanic out of her and her sister. They were to get grubby all week and go to town on the weekend being the bells of the balls. Haha. When I got pregnant the 3rd time, I of course still wanted a boy, but I kind of figured it would be another girl. It was okay, I had all of Patsy's baby girl clothes in her closet to be reused again. When they told me it was a boy, I about fell off the ultrasound table! I happily took the picture to Mark (it said 'I'm a boy' on it with an arrow pointing to the vital clue. Haha)He looked at it puzzled and was like 'what's this?' I frowned and pulled out the baby boy sleeper I had bought that day. 'What did you buy that for?' Ugg! 'I'm having a boy, you idiot!' He shrugged his shoulders and smiled 'good'. He loves his son, but he isn't as obsessed by him as I am. Course I'm head over heels in love with all my children! Clara makes me smile with her smarts and her expressive ways. Patsy has a delayed speech problem so every time she speaks a new word I jump up and down with joy as is she just spoke her first word. Marcus is so manly and handsome that I just marvel over his handsomeness constantly! Haha. I guess all that to say, that if the man and woman are in love, they probably do yearn for a child of the opposite gender as themselves. They probably both figure that if the person they are with is so awesome then having a child of that gender is automatically going to duplicate it (and some of this could be subconsiously and they not really realize that they think this) But, if they aren't so in love with their partner and the pregnancy just happens they may think that they can live vicariously through the child of the same gender as them. Maybe even going so far as to think that they can train the child to have their guard up about members of the opposite gender. Hmmm. That's just my 2 cents.

i love having a son so much. i always wanted to have a boy. if i had to choose i would always pick a boy because i just relate to them so well. he has been a real joy in my life. i am sure i would love a daughter just the same but i got what i wanted and i am so grateful.

i have already had my son for the first and i know before we have a child there are thoughts of this kind and we would like to have a son or a daughter. when i was expecting for the first i was scared as some of my family members wants a male baby and some female and i was like in a big confusion but i had a male baby and now i think when i am expecting i would like to have a female baby but all this is not in our hands and i would just like to have a healthy baby.

Just think of God and not what you like. Just forget to think that a daughter is better than having a son, or vise versa. Think of God and the gift he will give you. No matter what happen, accept the gift. We are only instrument by God to deliver babies in this world. Soon they will have thier own life and have thier own baby too. Expect that you wont get what you really want, God has a plan and god is wise in giving gift. Truth is i like son or daughter, its no matter to me. I think they are cute.Or probably i will have a twin, haha happy mylotting! Thanks !

well for me God gave me all boys. we dont have the rights to choose cause God has a perfect plan for everything and he will give u what he knows what is best for you. I will lie if i didn't pray that my last baby will be a girl but it turns out that its still a boy. its my last baby cause i will never conceive anymore. but its ok for me boys is sweeter and caring to a mother. you're right girls is spoiled to their dad. but im so happy with my kids i know someday they will be there for me. I thank God for giving 3 boys to me and all i wish is that they will grow up as a good citizen and good health. it doesn't matter what child gave you what matters most is how you take care God's gift to you. How you would guide them to their respective lives.

My wife and I hoped to have two daughters when we got to know we will have two babies after a medical examination. But later she gave birth to two sons beyond our expectation. My wife always says that people usually have babies of the opposite gender against their expectation. Anyway, my two twin sons are so lovely,healthy. Though sometimes they are naughty enough to get you frustrated,it is really a great comfort to see my sons after a tough day of hard work. Have a nice day and good luck!
