guilty. What I mean is, we have 1 boy & 2 girls and sometimes our son gets left out and plays by hisself. I don't see that as a big deal but I can understand that but he does play with his sisters. My dh keeps going on about how we need another boy. We're not financially stable at the moment and we haven't had a child in 3 years. I don't want to get pregnant and disapoint him you know.

What if you had another girl?  There's no guarantee he will get the other boy he wants.

Theres no guarantee it would be a boy, and if your not financially ready it would be really unfair to the other kids because it would take away from them.

The only guarantee to have a boy would to do In-vitro and do gender selection which is very expensive. So if that isn't done then there is always the chance of 3 girls and 1 boy. If you aren't ready for another child then tell your dh to lay off with the comments because you aren't ready.

Well don't get him wrong its something he wants I mean its not like hes trying to make me or anything its just he feels like our son is left out and needs a brother or another boy to play with. We don't know anyone who has a kid his age so thats out of the question. I tell him that we can't guarantee another boy and he agrees. Like I said, hes not forcing the issue and he understands that.

I had two brothers growing up and i did feel left out sometimes. With that being said I am very comfortable around guys ( as preteen when other girls were awkward i wasn't as much) I learned to entertain myself and compromise. Your son will learn valuable lesson from his sisters and DH should play guy dates for him.

 Even if you get pregnant again. You might have another girl and not a boy

 Why do you feel guilty? He is the one that determines the sex of the baby. Why would he want another baby if your not stable right now?

I have 2 girls and a 1 boy too,He is in the middle. He does sometimes feel left out I think but the older he gets the more he knows that he doesn't want to do "girl stuff" anyway. He used to always ask for a brother. HAHA. How old is he? If he is over 6 maybe you can get him involved in Boyscouts. It's a great place to be with boys or maybe a sport like soccer or teeball. and also some one on one time with daddy is always a great benefit to being the only boy! hth
