IVF - did you/are you having boy or girl?
VillageFete · 17/05/2017 09:54
I have secondary infertility and after 3 years ttc naturally we are now hoping to move on to IVF. We have a beautiful almost 8 year old DD (natural conception) and my DP is getting carried away with himself saying IVF (without ICSI) is more likely to produce boys, and how exciting it will be for him to experience having a son etc.. I would like to think it's all genuinely down to chance and we'll have a wonderful surprise at the end (if it works)
Just out of interest, if you had standard IVF, did you have a girl or boy? What day was your transfer?

We had ICSI and I am 25 weeks pregnant with a baby boy. We are delighted to have had a successful cycle as it is a gruelling process. The chance of having a boy with ivf may be higher but there is still the chance of having a girl so you will still have a surprise if successful. Good luck.

Thank you all for taking the time to reply. I've told him to calm down! To be honest i'd be happy with an alien after all this heartache of secondary infertility. It's just nice to know it's not massively skewed and there's an (almost) equal chance of either.
Kizzle Congratulations! You're having a girl, aren't you? Hope it all goes well for you. x
