Your Husband and your kids...

post #1 of 102
Thread Starter 
Mods i am Not sure where this would go so please move this where it can go (but please let me know where..) thanks so much.

So my mom has told me all my life that if you marry a guy and he has say..4 brothers, that means you will most likely have all boys. And vise versa. I am guessing she is wrong but I want to do this anyway. So if you could PLEASE participate in this & fill this out i would be So thankful!

What are the genders of your Dh's Father's Siblings? (if you don't know you can skip):

How Many Siblings does your DH have and what are their genders?:

How many kids do you have and what are their genders?:

thanks

FIL has one brother, 2 sisters.
DP has one brother.
We have a daughter.

Its really too small of a sample to tell, in most cases. If my DP had 9 siblings that were all boys, that would be indicative of something interesting going on with my ILs. The chances of having two children of the same sex when you have two children total is 50%. The chances of having ten children be all boys are substantially lower.

I feel like we are a boy family.

I have 2 brothers.

DH has 2 brothers.

We have 1 girl and 3 boys.

I read something recently that said women who ate breakfast were more likely to have boys. Weird. It was on the yahoo news page.

FIL has 3 brothers and 2 sisters
DH has 3 sisters and 1 brother from his father (both MIL and FIL have remarried several times; there are 9 total, I think. So confusing...)
We have one daughter together.

My ex-DH had 3 sisters, he was the only boy. Not sure what his father had...I never met him and they had no contact. We had one daughter together, and I found out after he passed away last year that he also has another daughter that I didn't know about.

I think I remember learning in school that men produce an equal number of X and Y sperm, though. Which would mean that it's just coincidence if the father's sibling's genders match up with what you're having.

I've been trying to find something about it online, but I'm not searching right or something. I'll keep looking.

My dh has 2 brothers.
My FIL had a very large family (I think 10 or 12 kids) and most of them were boys, I think 2 or 3 were girls?
We have three sons so far.

My DP's dad has one sister.

My DP has one brother.

We have one daughter and one son . . . and DP's brother has two daughters and a son (born in the order of girl, boy, girl).

Not a whole lot of rhyme or reason here, IMO.

You could just tell her that her theory is genetically asinine :
