Do you have gender preference for your first baby?


I have recently emigrated to India, where having a boy as a first born is a huge issue. I was wondering if the psyche of gender preference also gets to us in the Western countries, maybe just more subtle... Deep down and maybe nearly unnoticeable - have you realized a gender preference in yourself when thinking about having a baby/waiting for the result of a sex determination test or such likes? This question is not to judge anybody, but to understand underlying mechanisms in our society.

    Thank you blessedp for sharing. So you had a boy first then? Did he become a protector of the younger sibling?
