Just curious what other mommas are hoping for. I have 1 DS and I'm hoping this one will be a little girl! I pray for it everyday <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I've wanted a girl for as long as I can remember...<br><br>
anyway, just curious

We don't really care - though most of my family seems to want a girl (we have a ds). In fact, when we told DH's parents, MIL said she was going to go buy dresses =) We have a poll going on our baby site, and the votes so far are 6 for boy and 10 for girl.<br><br>
I would love at least one child of each gender... and I'm hoping to convince hubby we need 4 kids (he wants 3). But, really, I can't change it now, whatever baby is is fine with me... I'm just excited that s/he's coming!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I never cared either way but as soon as I got pregnant with my dd (of course didn't know she was a girl) I really wanted a girl, the same thing happened with my son only of course I really wanted a boy. I haven't gotten a strong feeling either way this time. I did have a dream the other night about a baby girl (so maybe it's a girl, usually my pregnancy dreams are right).

I voted girl, although really, I'd be ecstatic with either one. But my DH really wants a little girl (and I think that's sweet!), and the rest of the family wants a girl - MIL wants to sew fru-fru dresses, and my parents have 3 grandsons already, so it's time for a girl! And I think it'd be fun to sew girly cloth diapers for a change - boy prints are SO hard to find! And sewing cute little dresses would be great too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
But if it's another boy, I'll just enjoy dressing my "little man" again. Boys are lots of fun! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I really don't care which sex were get. I'll adore either one. I would love to get another girl someday, just so DD can have a sister. But if we only get boys from now on, I'll be happy with that too.

I think my baby is going to be a boy but I would love a girl. I think that raising a girl would be easier for some reason because I know what it is like! I would just be happy with a healthy baby. I worry about everything that could go wrong after reading stories!

It doesn't matter to me--it never did.<br><br>
Dh keeps telling me I'm having twins--(that's based on absolutely nothing, btw! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)

I feel guilty but I really would <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> a girl. I have 2 DS and of course love them to pieces but in all honesty my heart does long for a girl. I know this isn't the last babe... but it would be nice to have a girl. Although I must say there is something special about having 3 sons! As long as the babe is healthy I'm happy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I don't care, we have one dd. DH is the one that shocked me, I thought he'd be hoping for a boy this time around, but he said he wants more girls. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

We have two boys and a girl. I don't care either way. With dd's pregnancy, I started wanting a girl, then feeling terribly guilty about it, though I don't think hoping for a girl means I wouldn't like the baby if it were a boy. I think it was just pg hormones <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Before dd was conceived, ds#1 begged for a baby sister. When he found out we were having a baby, he begged for us to make it a girl. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> He prayed for a sister. Every time he had a chance to make a wish, he wished for a sister. He wasn't surprised when the baby was a girl. So lately (he doesn't know I"m pg), he has been saying he wants the next baby to be a girl, so the family will be even. We'll see what happens!

Does this mean I will get a girl <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> DS keeps telling me he wants a sister. I told him that God might want him to have another brother, he didn't like that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> We shall see! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'm feeling a bit outnumbered with all this testosterone surrounding me, so I'd quite like to have a little girl. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

<div style="font-style:italic;">having been pregnant with three boys so far my experience has been this - when asked by strangers and pediatricians and everyone else about the sex of the coming baby and my response being that it's a boy have always been met with frowns and i'm sorrys. there's not a lot that makes me more angry than sexism in utero.</div>

wow, that sucks. That is just so odd and absurd that it baffles me.<br><br>
I can't really decide what I "want" ... one day I'd love to have a girl, the next day a boy... I think my mom would love for me to have a girl so she can sew cute outfits for her. In fact just a month or so before I got pg she was sewing some skirts for her nieces and was saying, "I wish I could have some grandkids to sew for." How quickly her wish came true! In fact I think her momma blessings and wishes probably just rubbed off on me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
