    I think before I had kids I would have seriously considered it because I really wanted to have a girl but my son is so darn amazing that I don’t think I would.

    Hmm … maybe. Like if we had a third, I think it would be fun to have a girl. I’d be thrilled with another boy, too, but sometimes I’m not wild about being the only girl in the house. ;) I’m so not used to that, and I really never pictured myself as an all-boy mom.

    No. If I picked by sex and the kid ended up a total terror, I’d wonder for the rest of my life what the kid I would have gotten if I hadn’t intervened would have been like. I’d rather just have to worry about nurture and have nature taken out of my hands.

    Nope. I always really wanted a son and I have him already. If we are lucky enough to have another, I truly wouldn’t care about the gender. A boy would be familiar and easier in terms of room sharing and hand me downs. I adore my boy and certainly wouldn’t mind having another. On the other hand, the girls at Ethan’s school are adorable and always win me over with their social skills, so a girl would be nice, too, of course.

    I don’t think I’d want that. I like the nice surprise. HOWEVER, since we already have three girls, IF I could/wanted to pick, I’d go with twin boys next. ;)

    No, I sort of agree with embra. I would always wonder what would have been if I had picked the other. I couldn’t handle that much power!

    NO never I would never choose the sex of my child for me whether a boy or a girl does not make any difference for me .I have two sons .When they are to born I never thought whether I will give birth to a baby girl or a baby boy .

    No, I want whatever I am destined to have. My husband really wants a boy this time around and I just can’t understand his way of thinking. We have one of each already. Any baby, no matter what will be a blessing. He is such a sucker for our DD though so I am thinking he is terrified of what 2 girls will do to him. Haha!

    I love my 3 girls, but if I could choose the sex of this last baby, I would. I have always wanted a boy and so has my husband. Now I know this last kiddo will probably be a girl, and I am just fine with that. If choosing was an option, I would opt out on kids 1 and 2. They could be a surprise. Kids 3 and 4 I would like to hand pick.

    Yes i too believe that we have no authority to choose the sex of our child, as its a god gifted things, which needs to be cherished with whatever result comes out.

    I want a baby with sound health. I have no problem with sex.

    Well i believe more then choosing the sex of the baby, it is far more better to deliver a healthy baby. We need to rejoice what god has given us instead of blaming each other.
