  • here's the link for The Shettles Method -
    my mom used it and had a boy after 2 girls and she was almost 35. May have just been luck, but might help.

    aren't there drugs that can cause multiple births? I don't know if I'd try it, I hear that a lot of that has to do with multiple births running in the family. but my SIL has a family with LOTS of multiple births and has had 2 single pregnancies. no one that I know of has had multiple births in my family and I got pregnant with twins when I was about 20 - so you never know!
    but I do hope that you get what you want!

    but most of all, I hope for a healthy baby and a easy pregnancy for you! :)

  • There could be a chance, with that, but you might also not. I was suppose to have a chance to have twins myself and I didn't . then we thought my huaband brothers might, but no niether of them did either. I have a teen daughter and pre-teen son one of my brother has a little girl, and my other brother has a daughter as well. and both their wife can't have anymore kids . B ut the chances are there though. :)
