Gender Selection

I was wondering if anyone would share their story if they used gender selection as a means for family balancing. I am pregnant with my second boy and really want to have third child- a girl. We are talking about PGD or Microsort with artificial insemination.

  • I think God gives you a "balanced" family, I wouldn't ever pick the sex but I hope it works out for you.

  • its a shame people are starting to pick babies like picking fruit at the grocery store. Does it matter will you not love your child if its not a girl?

  • I know with a IUI treatment that you can choose the sex its not 100 % but can give you good odds. Good Luck.

  • If you really want a girl why don't you adopt one? There are lots of girls in foster care, and it's virtually free to adopt from the system.

  • i know how you feel i have to sons already and this baby is possibly another boy they arent sure and wouldnt trade them for anything but i want a daughter and yes i think god gives you what you are supposed to have but i also look at it in the way that you have to do your part also god just isnt going to hand you everything you want on a silver platter. "Two men prayed for God to send the rain but only one man prepared his field to accept the rain from God" you have to do your part and prepare you field to accept what god has for you.

  • WELL WE ARE TTC AND I HAVE TWO SONS AND WE WANT A GIRL, I BEEN READING ALOT ON HOW TO DO IT THERE ARE ALOT OF WEBSITES THAT CAN HELP, IN-GENDER.COM IS ONE AND GOOGLE THE SHETTLES METHOD. DONT PAY ATTENTION TO NEGATIVE COMMENTS! OF COURSE WE WOULD LOVE OUR BABIES NO MATTER WHAT SEX BUT IF THERE IS SOMETHING WE COULD DO NATURALLY TO SWAY THE OUTCOME THEN WHY NOT TRY!

  • Thanks for all your posts. I appreciate everyone's advice and all different opions. Yes, I do already love the baby I am pregannt with and will love him forever. I just can't help feeling that if I don't have a girl at some pint, I iwll spend my whole life chasing that dream. I think I am going to read the book : "Chasing the gender dream"...a true story!
