I have a boy, 15 months, and just had a BFP. A few people have already said that it would be a girl, not sure why! Is there a myth that if you have a boy first then a girl follows or is this just nonsense?
Not in my family - my sister and stepsister have both had two boys. I am convinced that if I ever have another one it'll be another boy!
It's nonsense. I've got two boys.
People say that because they think it is what you want to hear, ie a boy and a girlThere are loads and loads of families with 2 boys / 2 girls.Surely you must know loads yourself?
Nonsense. I know loads of people who have two of the same gender, myself included, currently pg with DS2.
i think people assume (rightly or wrongly) that if you have a boy you must want a girl second time around so say it on this basis?i am PG with DC2 and no idea what i am having - DS thinks it is a girl!
Two boys here as well
i know slightly more people with a boy then a girl, but lots with two of the same gender people have got 50 % chance of being right !
It is a myth. Apparently it is "easier" to have children of the same gender.
