  • not totally insane :) at least if you don't mind if it's a girl

    it could be possible that your hubby does not carry the sperm required to make a boy. it's all up to his sperm's genetic make up as to if it's a boy or girl.

  • That's perfectly okay if you know you can handle another little munchkin or if your okay with the chance of having girl #4. Me though? Ha! I'm fearing a #2!

  • To try to have a baby is not insane if you are able to support it :-) I have three girls and my youngest is a boy, but I didn't try it that way... just happened. I have a friend that has three girls, is on IUD till they're more stable to try for a fourth... they're hoping for a boy too. I have a different friend that has four boys and her youngest is a girl, and she did try for that. So no I don't think you're insane, but I do think you shouldn't get too upset if you end up with another girl... I had a girl name picked out for my son in all anticipation that he'd be a she, hehe.

  • I know one family that has had 6 girls. Every time after the first they were hoping for a boy, but it just doesn't look like they can have one. They love their little girls though! Good luck!

  • People can not answer this in total because they are not aware of your whole story. Because of your financial situation and living situation, I would say it would be very foolish to be trying for a child right now. But ultimately, no matter what the world thinks, that is between you two.

  • I don't think your insane at all! I have 3 kiddos (2 boys and a girl) and we are trying for a fourth. Good luck with what ever you decide!
