Hopfuly he gets it all out of his system before the teen years, i dont think he'll get away with much having four sisters keeping a eye on him.

LOL I see.  My mom had 3 girls and then my brother...she constantly tells me girls are better (actually, she says girls are the best!) and boys are much harder. LOL  I get a little nervous thinking about having a boy some day now after all these girls...what would I do with a boy? I think I've forgotten how to take care of boys (I used to do it all the time cuz I worked in daycares), but hopefully it would come back to me if I had one of my own. ;)

LOL well i guess it was a change of sperm donar,i had the girls with my ex hubby and a boy with my partner. Yep the age gap is pretty big and it was like starting all over again minus the energy i used to have nine years ago.I must say he is very demanding but i guess thats the male in him lol,i'm really enjoying him though, but must say the girls were so much easier.

Angela....a 5 month old son! That gives me some hope, I guess. Hubby wants a son some day. ;)  Pretty big gap in the last 2 kids. Any reason? Just curious.

My husband and i always wanted a boy... but now that we're done for sure... we've discussed it and he says he really doesn't think he'd know what he'd do with a boy now if we had one... hehehe

HI!  I have four girls of my own.  They range in ages from 15,12,9, and 6.  They keep me really busy.  I am enjoying reading everyone else's posts.

LOL Everyone tells me my girls are energetic and loud, but honestly I'm just so used to chaos. I worked in daycares and preschools for the longest time, so anything less than that would bore me. haha  My girls LOVE wearing dresses. I actually use it to bribe them sometimes...if they do such and such, I'll let them wear a dress. hehee My oldest is probably the girliest so far though and her sisters are more or less just following her lead since they are all so close in age.  I was a real tomboy as a kid though...I HATED dresses! I climbed fences and trees and even inside my closet. None of my girls are even close to how un-girly I was as a kid. Thank goodness. LOL  I don't mind having 4 girls, but since we want MORE kids, I think I would just feel "weird" if we ended up with 7 girls or something crazy like that. LOL

LOL... Well even though 3 out of 4 were not loud...I had two that loved to dress up.. and 2 that don't. The two older girls now do the opposite the did as children. The one that wore dresses is very casual now.. LL Bean look.. The other that never wore a dress or the color pink until 11th grade..Now loves all the feminine styles.. That's why I love girls.. We love to change our mind and that's our prerogative. LOL

i just enjoy the fact that while they love wearing jeans.... if something comes along that they need to dress up i can put them in dresses and they are just as happy! :)

Hi There,
I have 4 girls... 25,19, 9,and 8.. We decided after ten years we wanted more... I am thankful that they are all girls... I thought at one time I wanted a boy but watching my nephews and my friends boys that I don't think I could have handled it.. I think boys are born thinking they can fly... They are very active and loud... I love doing crafts with the girls, shopping, baking ect.. I know a boy can do all that too, and a girl can be loud. My youngest is pretty loud and bouncy too.... but I just love little girls....

Hi,  I have 5 girls, Genevieve is 8, Trinity 6, Sabrina 4, Zaida 3 and Ariana is 5 months,



 I wouldn't have it any other way. Growing up My family had 5 also, but there is a 10 year gap  between my little sister & I, and a and a 16 year gap between my brother and I. I want my kids to all grow up close together.



I love that there are other people out there who are living the same "life" as me LOL 



 



ya, the hair, bathrooms, and  a few years down the road the PMS~ing!! ugh, but it keeps life fun, and with all girls, how fun is it going to be for them to be able to share clothes as teenagers?  My older sister and I were never the same size, and I never fit in to anything she had. I know there are time they can't stand each other, and I know there will be MANY more! lol But if I had 4 other sisters who were that close to me in my life now i would love it! :-)



As for a boy, at this point I'm not sure what we would do with one!! ha ha



A whole new wardrobe, new set of toys, new bath time after a few years..and so on. I was kind of relieved when we found out #5 was a girl, at least we know what we are doing !:-)

we have spent many long hrs discussing the what ifs of the future.. we figured there are going  to be things he is going to have to know if (lord help us if i ever should) anything were ever to happen to me.. my family are all in the US and his parents are older... so he needed to know just in case..



 



he does alot.. i think the only thing he really doesn't do.. (but still can) is the laundry...

The public restrooms here are terrible. Most don't even have handicap stalls and many time the handicap restroom is locked and we don't have time to wait around for a mall employee to come open it. My hubby has tried taking them many times, but the men's rooms are nasty and there aren't many place with unisex toilets here. Also, in most cases, you have to bring your own toilet paper with you and obviously it's not as easy for dh to carry some around in his pocket as it is for me to stick some in my purse or the diaper bag.  My hubby WILL take them if he can though. He's not the type to be embarrassed about lugging a diaper bag around...no matter how pink and flowery it is. LOL

My girls can get into cars and transformers for a very short time, but they usually end up back at princesses and barbies before too long. LOL My husband has tried to get them interested in basketball and superheroes, but they only humor him from time to time. LOL

My husband knows so little about PMS and such that I'm either gonna need to educate him or deal with it myself. He already has a cow if the girls mention boys from school (they are 6 and 4 1/2!!!!) I'm gonna have my hands full with daddy as much as the girls when we get to the teenage years. HELP! LOL

all girls is something that's pretty common in my family.. my mom's mom only had 1 girl (my mom).. my parents only had 2 girls ( me and my sister) my sister had 2 girls and i have 4 girls.. on my husbands side its i bit different.. everyone has at least one boy except us.



I don't influence any decsion (bad spelling) made by any of our girls. there are some things i don't allow them to do of course but the little things like clothes, toys hobbies and etc i don't worry about.



My husband is lovely with "girly" conversations.. in the 8 yrs we've been together and married he has asked questions about certain things like PMS, bras and etc.. for the future and the what-if situations.

[deleted account]

Yeah I have a just turned 6yr old who is a huge tomboy!! Not our influence at all, but she has always loved spiderman, superman, refuses to wear dresses or skirts (even to prep) and loves all boy toys...hates anything pink or girlie. So we get to venture out of the girl section frequently!! I have started to try and sway her choices to the less girlie-girl clothes in the girls section...I hate people thinking she must be a pretty boy! But I still let her wear the spiderman undies under her girl clothes!! lol



My youngest is almost 3 now and the desire for a boy is pretty much gone...I love having all girls and the fact that we really stand out as different! I don't think I would have it any other way.

Hi ladies, I am 43 and the mother of four beautiful girls, ages 12, 16,17 & 19. I love reading your posts and listening to you all talk about issue that I had when mine were little. I can't even imagine having a boy now, although we were trying for a boy when I got pregnant with number 4. I love having girls and my husband says he'll always have someone to take care of him in his old age. Sometimes he feels left out, or would prefer to be left out, depending on the conversation. LOL My girls and I have some pretty in-depth conversations at the dinner table and daddy sometimes has a hard time dealing with the issues we discuss. It can be pretty funny sometimes to see him trying to act normal when the girls are discussing PMS, bras, boys, etc. Wait till yours are that age. I love every minute of it.



Enjoy them now, they grow up so fast!

My hubby takes our girls to eiether the little toilet in the parents room in the shopping centre or to the disabled toilet.. he gets a lot of shitty looks of the old women who come in there.. but sometimes mom just can't take them while we're shopping..



I'm not always in the girly sections in stores.. i dunno maybe i'm lucky.. My 5 yr old is a tomboy and likes cars, bikes etc as well as barbies, and babies..etc..

[deleted account]

I had had weird bleeding during my last two labours. After each contraction comes a huge gush of blood, also has me in the labour room a lot longer than normal. Dr's have no idea why it happens but I lose a LOT of blood.



I take all 5 girls into the disabled toilet, heaps more room in there!



I desperately wanted a boy too...no particular reason, I have just always wanted a boy...but maybe I had so many girls because I probably would have stopped trying if I had a boy early on...I am just meant to have a large family!!

Don't get me wrong...I LOVE having my house full of girls. But they reasons I want a boy are not so we can pass on the family name or anything like that...I'd just like it if there was one head of hair that didn't need to be done by mom, or if dad could take someone to the bathroom (the stall gets pretty crowded with me and 3 little ones..don't know what we'll do when the baby needs to come in too..LOL), or maybe we could venture out of the girly section of the stores for once. LOL Of course, I tease my husband that the reason we don't have a boy is because we can't agree on a boy name.



 



My ob was giving me "tips" for conceiving a boy. LOL I have a friend who is trying to get pregnant and wants a girl and she read up on tricks on having a girl and there are some pretty crazy suggestions out there. ..Think we'll just rely on good ol' fashion praying and timing. LOL



 



Sorry about the complications. I had some heavy bleeding after this last one according to my ob, so I had to wait a little longer to be moved to the postpartum room, but thankfully nothing too serious. Just some clotting issues that she was prepared for since I had a birrage of tests due to mysterious rash on my hands during the entire pregnancy.

I know i'm different then most ppl around where i live.. but then i like it that way too... i wanted a boy.. i cannot lie... but then having all girls makes it easier for the fact that if i can't explain something down the track.. their sisters can!

[deleted account]

Must admit that now I actually have 5 girls I do really like it! It is kind of rare these days here in Australia to have 5 kids...let alone all 5 being girls...I like not just being normal like everyone else...ya know...

[deleted account]

For my last 4 girls I tried every trick in the book including boy diet, supplements, environment change, timing, positions, moon charts...you name it and we tried it...nothing worked for me!

yeah  i was told by everyone that some ppl are just breeders for girls... my mid-wive told me that ppl like me have a low chance of having a boy... but there's always a chance....

after birth i felt very very weak.. and my uterus was cramping very badly as if i were going to have twins... then it all stopped well except the tiredness and being weak...so they suggested a shower... while showering i began to hemorage.. and bleed out... so i sat down..just inside my room and started to pass out as i started to hemorage a 2nd time.. at this stage they had to lift me to my bed and give me shots to cause my uterus to contract as it hadn't closed as normal... i lost enough blood that i was so low on blood it was very dangerous.... i also had a bad case of diabeties... i also have an unstable pelvis (which causes your joints to move more then normal and uncomtrollablly..)

We're trying to wait awhile before having more. My ob said my body needs a break. :(  I think when we try again though, I'll look for tips on having a boy...like waiting until later in my cycle to bd or something. LOL 

[deleted account]

When I only had 4 girls my OB told me that there was an 85% chance that #5 would be a girl as well!! Not sure if we will go for #6 to make it even yet or not???

My hubby is Filipino.  We might have #5 some day, but I'm trying to wait at least 3 years. LOL What sort of complications did you have?  Actually, I'm hoping we don't have another girl, but we'll have to wait and see, I guess. ;)
