Wow, Clarity - what a battle! I'm so glad you have a babe in arms now.
So, are you one of the individuals who cannot carry male fetuses? (Is that what you meant?)
I've been reading a lot more about recurring m/c and the fact that some women do not have a y chromosome to pass on to the sperm - or something like that - so their body automatically "aborts" the fetus.
My BIL is an MD and suspects this is the cause of our family's bizarre all-girl phenomena - there are now 10 granddaughters, no boys at all, and a total of 7 early miscarriages.
I hope that some day we will be able to have a boy. Not that I don't adore my girls - I do - and I guess I'm a good "girl mom". But, there's a part of me that longs for a son - the only boy in the family is my DH and he's the last in the entire family to pass on the family name (even cousins).
