If you have all of one sex are you wanting/trying for the other sex?

I have several friends that have either all girls or all boys and they keep trying for the other sex that they don't have. One of them ended up with 8 boys the other ended up with 5 girls.

I don't think it would be that big of a deal. We have 2 girls and i know hubby would like a boy but he's all for more girls if we have more girls but we certainly aren't going to keep trying until we get a boy because we would end up like the Duggars knowing us!! LOL

  • I have two boys. I frequently get asked if we are going to try for a girl. I tell them no, my sister has two girls who have been practicing PMS since they are toddlers and now they have it perfected, so I'll keep my boys.

  • we've already decided that if we end up with 3 girls it's not worth trying for a 4th and getting another girl just because we want a girl. poor husband would be too outnumbered! lol

  • When we had one boy, we tried for another boy. I didn't want girls.

  • We have three daughters and then had my tubes tied. When I was pregnant the third time we agreed that even if we didn't have a son we were stopping. Three children are perfect for us no matter what gender God chose to bless us with.
    Can you imagine being born as child number 4 out of 6 and being told that you weren't the gender they (your parents) were trying for so they kept on trying? Parents need to consider their reasons for having children and the impact their decisions will have on the children they bring into their family.

  • I'd like a boy eventually. But whenever we decide to try again, I'd be happy with another girl :)

  • I have two boys... I'm pregnant with our last child and I told my DH if it's not a girl, he better learn to run! lol All I wanted was a girl... I got all boys...
