A GIRL! What are the chances right? Well I looked them up and apparently the chances of the 6th being a girl after 5 in a row are 3 percent.


Family Size Same-Gender Mixed-Gender
2 Children 50% 50%
3 Children 25% 75%
4 Children 12.5% 87.5%
5 Children 6%. 94%
6 Children 3% 97%
7 Children 1.6% 98.4%

IM GOING FOR THE RECORD MAMAS.....I CAN'T BE STOPPED! Lolololol

congratulations

Funny story to make feel better.... Friend of mine had four girls and her husband begged her to have one more just to see if they would have a boy. This went on for a year until she gave in.

So she's pregnant ....


Surprise! It's spontaneous triplets!


Surprise again! All three are girls

Aw, way to shake up the stats! We have some friends with 6 girls, it provides a good comeback to the "dontcha know how that happens?" comment. She'll say, "well, we sure know how to do it for a girl, but if you could tell me how to do it for a boy, that'd be great.".

I had hear the opposite...that the more you have if a certain gender the higher the chance to have another. I like your stats better. I have 3 boys and we are only having one more baby...I really love a girl!
