i have 3 boys aged 10 8 and 3 and would love a girl but i know a 4th would be my last and know i would be disapointed if i had another boy which makes me feel bad because ive only just started really wanting a girl each time ive been pregnant has been because ive been broody and just wanted a baby not matter what sex . Im gettin pulled in a direcrtion of wanting a baby because i want a girl but then pulled in the other direction thinking it could be a boy how would i feel is four kids alot plus my partner just beeen layed off so not so good money wise not sure what to do but i do know if i got told it would be a girl i wouldnt hesatate

If your partner is layed off, and money is tight, you need to not think about adding another child to that mix. Later on, if you still want a girl, adopt one.

I think if you want a baby because you want a child then go for it but if your going to end up disappointed your having a child because its the wrong sex then don't bother, I've watched program's were people go on to have 12 boys just trying for that girl.

My dad always wanted a boy I know I was their last try and I've never felt truly wanted, my sisters went on to have loads of boys and my dad is really close to my nephews so in the end he got his boys but these ones are better for him because he doesn't have to do all the hard work ;)

thanku for ur reply i may be something that will happen in the future when my partner finds work again but i have told him think girl sperm till then lol. I do feel really blessed to have 3 beautiful healthy boys i couldnt ask for more but a little girl would be the icing on the cake but im also ready to accept this may not happen .

If you can't afford another baby (boy or girl as they cost the same as newborns) then don't bring another life into this world just yet. You should be able to provide for the children you have already before straining the family budget even further by adding another one.

In regards to the original question, no 4 isn't a lot. I know families that my boys go to to school with and they have 4 or more. One of my close friends just had #6 and my cousin is pregnant with #7.

If you can afford it, by all means have another child but be warned, the possibility of another boy is HUGE!!!!!!! I know a family that had 7 boys because they kept trying for the girl and she never eventuated. Just as well they owned a farm so had plenty of children to take over.

It's all up to your husband as to what sex the baby is. I had to change husband's to get my girl :-P
