Just gaging how common it was for parents to strongly desire one sex over the other before the sex of the baby is known??? I preferred a girl when I was pregnant; I had a boy. Sure I was a little out of it when I heard the ultrasound tech say "it's a boy," but I was over it so quickly. I soon eagerly set to the task of buying tons of powder blue baby stuff. I love my child and I can't imagine having any other in his place. I lurk on parenting forum and some post threads about their disappointment when their child is a toddler or in elementary. This is a large forum and I'm not sure how typical this is.
