I have two boys and am dying to have a daughter. I have heard that if you have two children of the same sex, your chances of having a third child of the opposite sex decreases. Is this true?

  • Well, I don't know for sure, but I know my uncle had 4 girls trying for a boy. But my grandparents had a boy, 2 girls, and then another boy. My other grandparents had a boy, a girl, and then 3 more boys. My ex had a daughter when I met him, and we had 2 boys. Personally, I think it's probably more just a roll of the get what you get. Good luck trying though! I hope you get your girl!
