a boy or a girl for your first child? i heard some of the guys prefer a boy for their first child, but for women they want a girl. for me, a boy or a girl will do, as long as my baby is healthy and okey.. how about you? do you have any reason for having a boy or a girlas your first child?

At first we wanted a boy to carry on my husbands last name (he is the only one left besides his 13 year old brother). But we found out we were having a girl and know i am happy it was a girl. Maybe we will have a boy next time.

Either or is fine with me, I'd like to have a daughter (which I do currently) so I can do girly things with her like shopping, play with makeup etc. I would like to have a son cause he can grow up to be the strong one or head of the family and also carry on the next generation.

For me it doesn't matter if my first child be a boy or a girl as far as it is healthy.Both are the symbol of my and my husband's love.He/she will be our life.It is the gods gift to us and we need to recieve it with both hands.

I don't really know because I have 2 boys and I had my first when I was 19 so I didn't really think that much about it before I had him. I thought he was going to be a girl but I was kind of glad he was a boy. then when my second came along, I wanted him to be a boy because I already had a boy. I think I would still want to have boys because I have heard that they are easier!

any gender should do for me as long as the baby is healthy, and they are gifts from God after all.Though my husband prefered to have a boy, which we had when i gave birth. He was so happy then. hehehe He said why he likes to have a boy as a first baby so that when we have a girl the big brother could take care of his little sister. Well, makes sense to me. =)

For me also, as long as the baby is healthy and fit it's enough. My elder brother is a patiant of Cerebral Palacy and I have seen my parets pain for having a abnormal child. So I always pray to god that my child should be born normal. Ipersonally would prefer my first child to be girl because we didnt have any sisters in our generation.

i think i want to have a baby boy..but as you said..a girl will do too..as long as they're in good shape..^_^ but i really think that having a baby boy will be more fun for a first timer..because its like having an extreme exercise..so when you get to have a baby girl for you second child..you will be used to it and it wont be as tiring as is was..^_^
