Anyone Have Two Boys and a Girl, or Two Girls and a Boy?

I am pregs with number three, as most know I think! Anyhoo, I was wondering what the stats out there are for two of the same gender and then a third of the opposing gender. I have a few friends that have this, but most have the same! I have two fabulous boys and would love a girl, but I am getting that familiar boy "sense" and my hubs is just sure it's a boy. But I have come up with the most awesome name, so if it is a boy, I will get to use a name I just love :D Anyway, just curious, do you think it is more common to have all the same gender? Just for clarification, I will not be disappointed if it is a boy, a girl would be great bc I haven't experienced raising one, but a boy will be fab also. Just curious what some of you think about this!

What can I do next?

So What Happened?™

In answer to 3princes.. I will find out in about 9 wks I guess, I am 11 now so around 20 wks or so. I am eager to find out but I also enjoy the time of mystery :D My oldest son informs me regularly that he doesn't need a baby brother because he already has one! So that will be interesting if it is a boy ;)
update: probably no one will read this now but I did find out and it is another baby boy! I saw little boy parts immediately and he was showing them off the whole ultrasound ;) We are very happy :D

You have 50% chance that this baby is a girl, 50% its a boy. Don't let people tell you that you have a greater chance of it being another boy....I saw a study once that disproves this. And it just doesn't make sense scientifically.

Three boys are so much fun, as would be adding a girl. WHen do you find out?

Well, the stat are different for boys than girl...
Boys are 75%, while girls are 73% likelihood of the 3rd child being the same gender as long as it is the same mother and father. Change dad's and the stats are 50% either way.

I have heard from people that with each child (for some reason) your chances of a different gender decrease. I'm one of 3 girls from my parents (my dad had three girls then one boy with his first wife). I have three boys of my own. My brother-in-law (sister's hubby) is one of 4 boys, and my best female friend, who is one of three girls, is married to one of four boys.

My youngest is less than two months old, so blessings on all of you if you have another boy (or even if you don't). It is AWESOME!! (But insane.)

I had three boys then a girl. Have you heard the old wives tale about predicting the sex of the baby with a string and your wedding ring?

I did this and it was right every time.
It is just for fun and even funnier when it comes true!!
Good luck and God Bless!!

Well, we chose to be surprised with every pregnancy (finding out gender that is!) And after two boys I was so convinced that I was having a third boy that when they said "it's a girl" I asked, are you sure??? Like you I wasn't hoping for a boy or girl, happy with what God gave but I was excited to have a baby girl! My fourth was a boy so my daughter will forever be the princess. :)

I have an 8yr old boy, and then 4yr & 1yr old girls!
All of my cousins have had all of the same gender babies-mostly boys! My SIL has girl, boy, girl. I guess it really is unpredictable!
Congrats with baby #3!!

I know a lot of people with 3 or 4 kids (all the same sex). However, there are nearly just as many with a mix (I personally have a mix). Really, it could go either way. I'm one of 3 and we are a mix. My husband is one of 3 and it's a mix in his family too. Only time will tell. :) You could humor yourself and get one of those over the counter tests if the waiting is absolutely torturing you! :) Not real accurate, from what I hear but why not. I don't know how people can stand the wait (not wanting to find out until the delivery). I always wanted to know, as soon as I could, what our future would look like. :) How exciting! Congrats.

My boys are 22 and 10, my girls are 13, and 15.

The little one wore pink a lot until he was about 2.

My best friend has 5 boys.

I have two boys (9&7), and just added a baby girl to the mix! My boys both wanted a baby sister, so I did what I could to please them, heehee.
Congrats to you and your family!!

I have 2 boys (ages 7 & 5) then a girl (age 3)...I had a 'sense' the 3rd was a boy too...but whoala! Girl!

Congrats either way!

~For the record, I always thought the idea of 3 brothers was wonderful...but 2 boys and a girl is just as wonderful!

My mom had me, then two boys. My mother-in-law had two boys, then a girl, then two other boys. My grandmother-in-law had two girls, then a boy (my father-in-law), then two girls. Very interesting. We have one of each; it'll be interesting to see which gender we have next (and when, since we're not ready for another one yet). Congratulations on your new baby!

My cousins are 2 boys and then a girl. My father is the oldest of 2 boys and then a girl.

I went 1 boy, 2 girls, 2 boys.

But my mom is the oldest of 3 girls and I'm the oldest of 3 girls.

Well in my "circle":
I have two older brothers. I am the third (and obviously am female).
But, my brother has 3 girls and then a boy. I have a friend with 3 girls. 2 friends who each have 3 boys. And a friend with 4 girls and a boy. All the rest of our friends seemed to have stopped before they reached number 3. As did we. We have one of each and consider ourselves done.

I did it! Two boys and a girl... and then another boy. :) We had been hoping #4 would be a girl so she would have a sister, but now that he's here I wouldn't change a thing!

my brother in law had girl then 2 boys. My sister has 2 girls and then a boy. Then theres some people that have all boys and all girls.

1 mom found this helpful

I have two boys, 18 and 16.

And 1 GIRL, 14!

So, yeah, I know what the stats say, but it could happen, right? Easy to say that since we don't REALLY care one way or the other, there's a lot of cool things about having THREE BOYS that I now don't have!

Congrats!

:)
