If this were on a TV show I would accuse it of jumping the shark. Crazy! My friend wanted 3 kids and her husband wanted just two, so he kept saying that after she gets pregnant with #2 he would go get snipped. She ended up getting pregnant with twins. Guess you can't stop a determined woman!

And the way you get to 3% is assuming that every time you get pregnant there is a 50/50 chance for either sex, like a coin toss. But I don't think that's necessarily the case, since some men produce more of one kind of sperm than another, and the woman's body can influence which sperm make it to fertilize the egg. So I'm with a PP who said you might be more likely to have more of a certain sex if you already have many, because it might indicate biological factors helping to select for that sex. KWIM?

Congratulations on another beautiful daughter OP!

I have heard that too. Like if you have 2 boys, you are more likely to have a third boy than a girl. That is why my sis is not having a third kid. She has 2 boys and is convinced she'll have a third if they try!

DH and I had 6 boys in a row before we got a girl.

DH's mom had 2 boys then 8 girls in a row before getting another boy. We used to tell everyone that because he had so many girls, we had to have boys to even things out.

Lol! Nobody has ever made the "don't you know how that happens" comment to me, but now I sort of hope they do so I can use that response! We have three boys and a fourth boy coming in May/June.

Congrats mama! I always thought I would have girls, but ended up having 1 girl followed by 4 boys! We are hoping for one more baby to complete our family and have just assumed it would be another boy. I would be so shocked if we actually got another girl. We joke that our dd was probably dh's one and only X swimmer
