OK, poppy, at first I was worried that you were talking about babies with gender identity disorder, which would be kinda hard to diagnose !
The answer would be no, not at this stage --- neither has science found a way to do this ( which would be borderline cloning ) and if such a technique was discovered, there are strong ethical problems it would give rise to, which might lead to such a technique being banned anyway. And een if the technique were discovered and the obstacles removed, it'd be a long time before it became clear whether it was safe or wise to use it, without endangering the health of the child.
You're not quite clear in your message whether you are male or female, and whether your husband is a woman who had a sex-change to become a man, or a man who had a sex-change to become a woman. In either case, either he would have had his testicles removed, or would never have had any in the first place.
In such a situation, in my experience, most couples would seek to adopt a child.
