Gender - Your first born....

We all hope and pray that no matter what, our babies are born happy and healthy and that's all that matters, but do any of you ladies ever think about what order you would "ideally" like to have your kids? 


I know there's not much you can do about it, and no matter what the gender, each child is a blessing, but DH and I often talk about how we would like to have a boy first, and then try for a little girl.  We're not sure why, it's just the way we envision it in our heads.  Anyone else do this?

I guess I haven't given it that much thought about what I would prefer, I guess.  I am just assuming that we are gonna have a boy because that is ALL anyone in DH's family has.  He has a brother, 2 nephews, a couple of boy cousins, and like 5 uncles.  All the women in the family are married in.  :)


Supposedly there is a method based when you have sex in relation to ovulation that determines whether you will have a boy or girl, but I think we will just be happy with the first one and then if we have a second one, we may try that out.  Of course we wouldn't be too disappointed if it didn't work and we ended up with either two boys or two girls.

I always thought I wanted a girl first because I'm a girl and I know girls iykwim.. and tbh I was a little upset when we found out that DS would be coming but once he arrived that was it- I wouldn't change him for a little girl ever!!


I do however hope that our next bundle is a girl!!  But if it turns out to be a boy I'm sure he's be as great a surprise as DS :)

I used to want a girl first, because I am the first born and a girl. My friend had a boy and I saw how cute and fun they can be too. I honestly do not have a preference. My husband wants a boy! Ideally, I'd love at least 1 boy and 1 girl, don't care which order!
