Your Husband and your kids... - Page 5

post #81 of 102
My husband is the oldest of four boys. I thought for sure I was only getting boys out of that guy. We now have two girls and a boy. The girls were "oops" babies and the boy we were trying for and made sure to have plenty of s*x right around ovulation. As a result I kind of buy into that whole "boy sperm swim faster but die quickly and girls swim slower and last longer" thing. But, then my sister who had IVF and has a girl would seem a direct contradiction of my scientific studies so what the heck do I know?

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!

I think most of you have pretty small sample sizes. My DH is one of 14 kids (no multiple births, all the same mother and father).

They are B (stillborn), G, B, B, B, B, B, G, G, G, B, B (accidental death as a toddler), G, B

If they'd stopped having kids sooner, the percentages could vary hugely depending on where they stopped. I'm sure glad they didn't stop sooner--my DH is number 14.

The total ratio is almost 2 boys to 1 girl, but since 2 of the boys died it's closer to half and half of the living children.

Of the around 55 (so far) grandchildren, the ratio is around 2 boys to 1 girl--about the same as it is for DH's parents' kids.

I'm one of 3 girls, no boys.

DH and I have 3 girls, no boys.

The statistics that are really disconcerting to me are that there is a much higher incidence of stillbirths and SIDS in the family than normal, and lots of miscarriages.

11 of the 12 living siblings have children . . . I think almost all of those 11 families lost our first child to either stillbirth or miscarriage.

I'm not sure of the ratios of my DH's parents' families. But my dad is one of 6 kids B, B, G, G, (the girls were twins), B, B. All healthy uneventful pregnancies, I think.

My mom is one of 3, all born prematurely: B, B, G . . . my mom is the only one who survived, most likely because she was a girl and girl preemies are supposedly stronger than boys born at the same stage of development. My mom didn't have any miscarriages or stillbirths, though she had a threatened miscarriage or early labor with her first child (me).

I miscarried my first, then threatened to miscarry and/or go into early labor with all three of my living children, who all ended up being full-term and just fine.

FIL is estranged from his family of origin. I know he has at least one brother.
DH is the oldest, with 2 younger sisters.
We have two boys.

I don't think there is any correlation between the father's family and the sex of the baby....
FIL-1 brother, 1 sister who died in infancy
Husband- 2 brothers, 4 sisters
We have 3 girls, 1 boy

One thing to note, my sister and I had our kids in the same order, girl, girl, boy, girl.
