Why do soon-to-be-dads always want a boy first,I don't understand. At least all the guys that I know, including my bf. My brother in law wanted a boy since the beggining and now he has 3 girls and no boys and he says no matter what it takes he is going to have a boy...why? Does this happens to any of you girs?

Not all guys, but I must admit many are. My husband really wanted a girl so badly as a first child - we just found out a few weeks ago after the ultrasound that it's a boy & he was a little disapointed. But many of my friends who had girls first had disapointed husbands.

 

whatever u want - March 17

It's for the name, boys carry the last names, and girls take their husbands names ( although it is possible now to keep our maiden name even after we're married if we want ), but it is mainly why. And also proabably for their ego, they got to teach their sons how/ what it is like to be a man.

Well my boyfriend is the opersit he wanted a baby girl, i thought it was strange because all the boys i know want boys.. ive been told you aint a "man" until you have a baby girl lol my boyfriend is footy mad so i thought he'd want a boy to share that with but obviously not lol and i found out i was having a baby girl, shes Due April 22nd and we are naming her Caprice April :)

I think generally speaking, having a boy first is ideal because he can "protect" his little sister. However, when I was pregnant with my first, I wanted it to be a girl (and it was) so bad I couldn't stand it. With my second we wanted a boy,(and it was) and with our 3rd, I want another girl (we don't know what this one is) for no other reason than the clothes are so much cuter and more fun to pick out. Until I had my son I had no idea girls clothes out numbered boys by a long shot. On the other hand, I think my son would handle a brother better than my daughter would handle a siste. We'll see in October. :o)

I have to agree with Tiffani - I personally want a boy first (although I will be happy to just have a healthy baby, boy or girl), just to be the big brother to "protect" his little sister. My bf feels the same way. Not to mention alot of men are scared at the idea of having a girl because they won't know how to bond with a girl like they would a boy - I mean, when you picture girl, you don't picture fishing, beer and race cars when they grow up...Just my opinion though. Leslie - what would you like?

hi missy, I don't know..like you say as long as its healthy..I guess I want a girl but I think its going to be a boy..its funny!

Leslie - I want a boy but my gut (and mom) tell me it's a girl. I have to wait another 8 weeks to see. How is your family situation? Every good? Seems like your bf has been behaving - is he getting used to the idea of the little one being around? How have you been feeling? Sickness and yucky stuff wearing off? I have been feeling much better, I go in 2 weeks to have the doppler done so I can hear the heartbeat - I am sooo excited.

hey Missy..well my family knows that I live with my bf and that we are getting married..what they don't know yet is that I am pregnant and they have asked me and I said no..I am just soo afraid that they are going to be very upset..My bf has been behaving a little bit more, he knows that we are having this baby no matter what..I had a doc. appt like 4 days ago!! I can see the baby's feet and hands and head and everything!!! It was soo exiting I could also see the little heart moving I don't know why I didn't got to hear it I guess on my next appt. in 2 weeks too. So how is your bf behaving? ohh and I am still nautious (sp) how about you?

 

Missy - March 17

You are at 10 weeks now right? I think you are one week behind me - they ususally won't do the doppler thing until you are at 12 or 13 weeks because alot of the time they can't hear the HB before then and people get all freaked out - I know I would!! My bf is being good, for now LOL. We are going on vacation next week to get away and have some fun. Just a short one, we are just taking the train about 1 1/2 hrs away. We were going to go back to Mexico like we did last year (we went to Acapulco) but we don't want to be so far if something (god forbid) should happen, ya know? So we are just going to San Diego to go to the zoo and stuff there. I am feeling much better, I still have a little bit of nausea, but it's pretty much gone now. I have had a stuff nose for about a week, but I hear that is normal. I really think you should talk to your family, I think that since they know you guys are going to be married they may not be angry over the pregnancy - just tell them you got started on the honeymoon early!! Did the Dr give you the printout from the US? I got one at 7.5 weeks and my bf carried it around in his pocket for 2 weeks until it was getting wrinkly....

this is sooooo funny!!!! I a going to MEXICO TOO!!!!!!!!! I live on Monday. I am going to Guadalajara, you know where is Puerto Vallarta..well the same state. .wow even that we have in common lol!! I am like 11 weeks and 3 days now... well at least my mood swings are not so bad like the beggining.

 

Missy - March 17

OK, so we are right at the same time then - I am due 10/2 - you must be due a day or two after me. We were going to go to Cancun but sometime I really want to go to Puerto Vallarta. My bf is Mexican, born in Jalisco, so he has been pretty much all over Mexico by this time.

My boyfriend wants a boy cos he says he would worry too much about a daughter when she reached her teens since he's knows how young men's minds work and hates the idea of having his daughter led astray! he really has too much time on his hands he he! but I guess i know where he's coming from. Myself, Iwouldn't mind either way. Weird thing is, he has plenty of girls' names picked out but none for a little boy. And we're not even pregnant yet!!! Lol xxxx

 

LESLIE - March 17

LESLIE - March 17

Missy - March 17

I am due 10/2 But for some reason I think I will have the baby 9/30 - I don't know why, but that date keeps coming to mind...strange huh? Funny that we have so much in common Leslie. Where did you live before going to FL?

 

leslie - March 17

I was in colorado for 9 years then I moved to Miami Beach for modeling and then I guess I ended up pregnant and engaged...I hope I can do modeling after the baby but i DOUBT IT plus who knows if those strech marks are g;oing to be kind to me.
