  • It is based time of ovulation and age of the male. It is said that if you get pregnant in the first days of ovulation you are most likely to have a boy, and if your man is younger his male sperm are more likely to last a little longer. It is all random so I do not think you could put a mathematical stat on it

  • Some people will say there's a huge chance, but I honestly think it all has to do with you and your husband. Everyone told me I had a two in six chance of having a girl because my boyfriend has two sisters and three brothers, and that that was an "accurate way" to determine your chances. I was convinced that I was having a boy...but whattaya know, I'm having a girl xP So I don't think it has anything to do with what his family members had.

  • it depends on the sperm that hits your egg... my fathers side of the family only produces female sperm
