I have 3 kids. #1 is a girl, #2 is a boy & #3 is a week old baby girl. My sister has 2 kids & #3 due in Sept. When she was pregnant with #1 she wanted a girl but got a boy, #2 she wanted a girl but got a boy again, last month she had a u/s and found out that #3 is a boy too. She really wants a girl but planned on gettin a tubal after #3. Last week I had my 3rd and I chose not to find out the sex. She was in the delivery room as she was with my first 2 kids. When the DR said "Its a girl" she started crying & walked out. Its been a week & she still isn't talkin to me. I talked to my mom earlier & she said my sister said she changed her mind about gettin a tubal as she wants a 4th child to try for a girl & "its not fair I got 2"
I'm worried she is gettin in over her head havin kids (& might be disappointed a 4th time) but more worried she wont talk to me again until she gets a girl! I dunno what to do..any ideas?

Its not your fault that you are having girls. If she wants to be positive then she can do sperm separation which is very expensive. She should not be mad at you, you cant help what sex baby she has. Just call her and talk it out. Let her know that she shouldn't be taking it out on you about the sex of the baby. I know a woman who is trying for a girl and now has 6 boys, and will keep trying...which I think is outrageous! I don't care what sex of baby I get, as long as the baby is a happy and healthy. Maybe she just isn't supposed to have girls. Tell her to pour all her love into your girls. Tell her to be happy with what she has, little boys love their mommies!
