So according the stats, once we had a 3rd girl, we should go ahead and have a 4th because the chances of having yet another girl was very slim. and those stats were right for us. its not the same though if you had 3 boys and then tried for a 4th. there is still a significant chance that in that case, you would still have a boy.
First off, congratulations OP! Second, interesting. We have 3 girls and are thinking about a forth. Dh wants a boy simply so that if we go to adopt later, people don't think we adopted 'just to get a boy.' I want a girl because I know how to do girls but would have no idea what to do with a boy at this point! I know there are biological and physiological reasons for gender runs, and I was thinking that we fit the bill for girls to begin with (DH is older and overweight) and since we already had 3 it seems he may just be more biologically prone to produce girlies. But now, maybe DH will get his boy, eh?

First of all congrats!!

DH told me about a Korean family that lived down the road where he grew up. They really wanted a boy and ended stopping after 8 girls. Everyone bugged the dad that they should have one more and he could have his own ball team. :-)

A girl I know had two boys. Then spontaneous triplets, all boys. Then a few month back I seen the birth announcement for boy #6.

Haha the triplet thing would happen to us for sure but to my hubs at me pleading to try for one more boy (really I'm ok with either but use the 'one more boy' ploy to convince him to at least consider)

The one more try ended us up with twins (both girls) already.

Our son asks me all the time why he's the only boy. Too cute.

Congratulations! I had 7 boys in a row, and then 2 baby girls. Part of me wonders if I would have gone on to have more girls...but we are not going to find out
