Re: Should I choose my next baby to be a boy or girl?

I would go with the best looking embryo instead of worrying about gender.

How interesting. That would feel odd. I would probably do girl but that's probably just because I have a sister. I have two sons and we are done. I don't know, I'd maybe pick the one the drs think looks most viable and donate the others for embryo adoption.

Re: Should I choose my next baby to be a boy or girl?

I go back and forth. Every time I feel I've decided on one path, I change my mind. I know I should be just grateful I have options, but I didn't anticipate this issue

Re: Should I choose my next baby to be a boy or girl?

This is an interesting scenario. I think if it were me I would tell them to take the best looking embryo and to please not tell me which one it was. Then I would try to wait until the anatomy scan to find out.

Re: Should I choose my next baby to be a boy or girl?

I would go with the healthiest looking embryo. If 2 are equally healthy looking I would ask the Dr to choose randomly and not tell me

I would take the best looking embryo and have them not tell you what the sex is

Re: Should I choose my next baby to be a boy or girl?

If it were me, I'd probably want to have one of each planted and leave it to God, but I'd be ok with the possibility they'd both take.

If I was making a gender choice solely for myself, I'd choose a boy. My boys are all mamas buddies and the girls are daddy's girls. I love my girls, too, but my relationship with my sons is unique.

If the choice was for my daughter, I'd choose a girl. I grew up with sisters and brothers and I was so much closer to my sisters. Girl talk, sharing clothes, shoes and makeup, doing each other's hair, shared interests, secrets, etc. Friends were satisfying, too, but a sister was constant and forever. I took having sisters for granted. Nearly all of my sisters-in-laws never had a sister and they refer to me and each other as their sisters. Each one has said they'd always wished for a sister and seem to cherish this late sisterhood.

I don't know if I could choose. That's something I'd rather leave to God's plan. That's why I said I'd implant one of each and just see what happened!

I would implant one of each. I just had my 2nd girl & am so happy to have 2 girls though but still feel like I need a son eventually. Ask your DH if in 10 yrs will not having a boy matter then? What will you do with the extra embryos that are not used?

Re: Should I choose my next baby to be a boy or girl?

Wow what an interesting situation. IDK for sure what I would do. But I think I would do one of two options

1. Tell the Dr. to pick the best looking one and not tell me what the gender is
2. Pick one boy and one girl. I would be okay with twins.

I would either have them pick the best without telling me gender or I would do one of each and still leave it to chance even if that meant having twins. I would have loved boy/girl twins!!!! I would never be able to choose a gender!
