If you wanted to have a girl or boy but had the opposite would you try again?


What if you had all of one gender but wanted to have one of another would you try even if you already had 2 or more kids???

How many kids do you want to have?

  • I am in the exact same position. I have two boys and REALLY want a little girl. I am 35 years old and really do not want to wait too much longer so I am pretty sure we are going to try at the end of summer for that girl. I even went as far as buying two books and the various things you can do to up your chances of the gender you desire. We shall see....

  • I have one boy.. and I will not stop until I have a girl. Even if that means 50 kids LOL no but I want between 4-6 kids. if I have 5 kids and they are all boys I will adopt a little girl so I have my daughter!

  • I have one DD and I'm only going to have one more. I would have more if I had A LOT more money.

  • I've always wanted a boy and a girl, but I got two boys and you know I don't mind being the only girl in the house, I would like to have one more baby and I want it to be a boy

  • I would've been happy having either, as long as my child was healthy.
    But, I really really wanted a girl and I lucked out by not only having a girl, but the best behaved girl I could even imagine. Even at a month old she was perfect! She has been an unbelievably easy child. To the point that one day I decided I didn't want to buy diapers anymore so I took her to the store to pick out what undies she wanted and has been potty trained ever since, she wasn't even 2 1/2 yet!
    So just the fact that my child is so easy.... I'm deathly afraid of having another because my friend had an evil lil baby that not only had colic as a small infant, but cried 12 hours a day until she was like a year and a half. Her second daughter is the best behaved child, she reminds me of my daughter when she was an infant!
    So I think I'll wait until my daughter is a lot older to try for another. And it would be nice to have a boy when that day comes!

  • I have a son, which is what I wanted, so I'm good. My SO && I have discussed having one more, but if we do it will be awhile. I would prefer another boy, but if I got a girl then I would still stop. Then again I might be done now, who knows, it's still completely up in the air.

  • We have 4 children. We were blessed with 3 girls first. We were not trying for a boy. I had it in my mind that all we would have were girls. Well we ended up being blessed with a Son. Our girls love him so much and they spoil him rotten! We all do! We love all our children.
