IF you had all children of one gender wahts the most times you would try for the other?

we found out we are hvaing our 2nd little boy.. We hoped ofr a girl but he is healthy and thats all that matters.. besides brothers will be fun! we will try one more time in about 3 years and if we end up with 3 boys we are done.. i will love my children regadless of their gender but it would nice to have a girl the last time around.. we knew we only wanted 2 or 3 anyways

  • I feel ya... I've always wanted a girl. I just had my 2nd boy feb 4th. I was upset about it for a long time because I knew I would not be able to have another child. Everyone around me had girls this year so that made it even worse. For those that are ignorant of this issue, it's called gender disappointment and it's very real. The best way to put it is, you love the children you have you just long for the child that you don't have. I hope it works out for you. :)

  • I probably wouldn't try at all unless I just wanted a child and didn't care whether it was a boy or girl. The idea of trying for a certain gender leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I would hate that my children thought I was disappointed in having them.

  • I can understand trying for a girl. But with the cost of raising children now days. I wouldn't take on more than our family can handle. But good luck with all your wishes
