What are the chances of me having a baby girl??
 
Hi ladies

I have just moved over from 1st tri. Im 14wk 4 days pregnant.

I already have a little boy and he is the best thing since sliced bread. We really wanted a little boy for our 1st and we got him but now im wondering if i will ever get a little girl?

The only reason i think its not likely is because i am the only girl in my family, so im 24 so no girls in 24 years, also i have 2 brothers and 4 male cousins. No other girls

On OH's side of the family there hasnt been a girl in over 40 years! he has 1 brother and 2 male cousins

So when we had our little boy we carried on the tradition as such. His cousin has also just had a boy.

Can you ladies share any stories you might have or is it likely that i will have another boy?

It doesnt matter either way but im just curious and i would love a little girl just so i have 1 of each. Either way though, just thought id ask

xx

Honestly, the odds are still 50/50.

Really?? so there is still a chance?

Like we have said would like a girl this time and OH thinks its a girl but i just keep thinking how likely is it that were gonna break the 40 years and have a girl? I hope it is 50/50 liek you say.

Is it possible for a man toonly carry an x or y sperm? not both? x

I've read that the girl and boy sperm have different charicteristics (sp) and depending on alot of factors on which gets to the egg first and gets in there.

Do you know how close to your ov day that you concieved? boy sperm are faster but dont survive as long so if you BD on the day you ov then more likely that the boy sperm got there. If you BD a few days before ov then the girl sperm which are slower but live longer wll get to the egg on the day of ov.

Thats as much as i know and im not an expert...x

Im not really 100% sure as i came off the pill on the 3rd of may and had a bleed and then i think i conceived on the 20 may? i have a normal 28 day cycle. I have also read what you have but to be honest im not all that sure on these ovulation dates etc. haha x

I think there would be fertility issues if that were the case. you could always try to do some research online to see if you can find anything about chromosome abnormalities (because if would definatly be an abnormality to only carry either x or y ONLY... and that I would imagine would be EXTREMLY RARE) But as far as 40 years, and no girls... ehh... it happens. Just the luck of the draw so to say. BUT, if you had no issues getting pregnant, then yes, your odds are still 50/50. My son was the first son in 20 years (taking into account all other cousins on my husband's side of the family). All girls on my side (I know that doesn't matter though).
BUT, I did read a study that said mother's intuition is accurate 71% of the time. So, if you really think you're having a girl, chances are you will. There's also a 'iridology' thread on here that talks about the 'fish hook' vein in your eyes. That thread was very interesting. Seems to have a very high success rate of determining gender.
Best of luck hun, hope you get your girl, LOL :flower:

Yea you make sense! haha. I try to say these things to myself and i think i say the opposite to what i want to hear, like its not possible.

We had no problems getting pregnant at all. Happened very quick (excuse the pun)

Ive read about the fish hook thing, i might go and look now!ha ha x

Its the sperm that determines the sex so I guess fact no girls for 24 years on your side is irrelevant? I think it is 50/50. Looking through my family history people have less children these days so less chance of a mixture of gender. I have 4 children , a lot compared to my sisters and cousins. I had 3 girls then boy, . I do think a mums instinct regarding gender is strong. I just knew my 4th baby was a boy. Good luck

Now, with the vein test... it can also look like a 'Y' instead of a fishhook. If it's in your right eye, or BOTH eyes, it's a little girl ;)
Just remember, it's not science (or I should say, it hasn't been 'proven'). Take your findings with a grain of salt!!! LOL
