Omg, that's my SIL!! She has the only girl in the lot of grandchildren.

So she's pregnant ....


Surprise! It's spontaneous triplets!


Surprise again! All three are girls
Lol! That cracked me up! We have 3 girls, 1 boy and really were hoping for another boy. Lo and behold, we are expecting twin girls! I'm just glad we aren't having triplets, twins totally blows my mind!
Congratulations on baby girl! Love those girls!

My mom was the first girl in her family and she was #8. She has 10 brothers and 1 sister. I have been told that I am very much like my grandma but I stopped after 4 boys.

Congrats

We have two boys and then went for one more. I was soo sure the whole time that #3 was another boy that I asked the dr. if she was sure it was a girl. LOL!!!!

DH has 3 sisters and 10 cousins--all girls. Two of his sisters and us have kids (one doesn't yet) and there were 5 boys first before our DD was born.

My grandma (dad's side) there were 8 boys and then her and my aunt.

Re: I HAVE 5 GIRLS AND THE 6TH ONE IS...........drum roll

I have 3 girls and then one boy. I actually looked up statistics quite a bit when we had our fourth (a surprise) to see what our chances of a boy would be. Its actually not as cut and dry as 50/50 each time. It was actually more common to have 4 boys than 4 girls. The percentages go way down for families of girls after 3 in a row. 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.

Hearing everyone's gender succession family history has been great. DOES ANYONE KNOW THE RECORD FOR SAME SEX IN SUCCESSION? I'm just curious and haven't been able to find it.
