I am pregant with my 4th son

I am pregant with my 4th son. I just found out a montha ago that the baby I am caring is another boy. Don't get me wrong i love my boys, but really wanted a girl this time. My husband really don't want anymore kids. And I can't help it that i need to try again for that girl. What is your opion, would you try again or just give up. have anyone else been through this? What was the out come?

  • I haven't been in your position, but my SIL was. She has 3 boys and just decided that she was going to be happy with having healthy sons, and when she gets a yearning to do something girlie, she comes and picks up my daughter or one of her other nieces and has a girls day.

  • Only right reason to have more children is if you AND hubby want more children......If your hubby is done, then it's done

  • im only on baby number 1 but i kinda wanted a girl since i grew up around all boys but my best friend has two girls under 2 and one is going to be 5 months older than my baby so i think that takes care of my want for a girl for now but my mom had a friend who wanted a boy sooooo bad and she ended up having 4 girls and gave them all names that could have boy nicknames....sam for samantha chris for christina bobbie for bobbie jean and jessie for jessica....she wanted a boy so bad and never got one but i heard her first grandchild was a boy

  • My husband hasnt really made up his mind, sometimes he says he doesnt wnat anymore then sometimes he says we might have another one. he is really unsure. I think he would only hav another one because I want one. But I wouldnt have another one unless we both agreed 100%.

  • I have 2 boys 5 and 10mths and will not feel ok with not trying one more time for a girl, we are in the same position, he says maybe, i say hell yes, he wants to wait til our son is 2 but i am olddd already and can't wait too much longer, it's hard, i REALLY want a girl, but ya never know,, just see what happens maybe you will get to try 1 last time? Good luck!

  • I wouldn't keep trying for a girl but that is a decision for you and your spouse to make.
