"Why would I try for a girl?" Or just a cold look, with warm bean dip.
That is the reason one episode of Home Improvement infuriated me! Jill was longing for a girl and had even made and bought some pink stuff when she was pregnant with the youngest boy. I guess some women feel like that, it seems to be what some people expect, but it goes against the norm of all the people I know.
Our nephew's wife was pregnant with their fourth child after 3 girls, and I did ask Nephew if he was looking for a boy - not in a pitying, longing way, but just teasing. He said that he wouldn't know what to do with a boy, and we had a good laugh. I did have a boy quilt and a girl quilt ready for them (they didn't have or want an ultrasound). The pink one got sent. (But of course, gender neutral would have been fine.)
This conversation has been plaguing couples for centuries. We have a girl and a boy, and honestly, if they had been the same gender, it wouldn't have mattered, and it doesn't make me a superior or happier human being that I have one of each.
