mrspopo- that's why i find my GD so hard to deal with because most women want daughters. There is no one that i can talk to about this that would understand because it seems everyone has a son(s). I wish I were one of those women on these sites that have 3 or 4 sons. I would be SO Happy!!
It's so odd for me to see that side of the equation, so thanks for sharing. If it's any comfort, I wanted "one of each" so I now have some GD about not having a girl - well, hearing about women like you who prefer all boys actually makes me feel better. Why? Because I tend to project my feelings onto all women, those feelings being that never having a girl is a failure for a woman. Kwim?
I do know 3 or 4 women IRL who, if they could only have one gender, would prefer boys. I was actually very surprised when they told me and was also surprised to read on here about you gals who prefer boys! I send you all my blue dust!! Actually, I would love to know you gals IRL - we could swap kids for a day once in a while - you could do boy things with my boys and I could do girly things with your girls!!
As for HT, I would also like to know where Luisa had it done for 3,000 euros! I don't believe in at-home swaying much so if we were to try for a third, we would need a guarantee of a girl. If someone could guarantee me the live birth of one healthy girl after just one HT cycle (not twins - single embryo transfer), I would do it without much hesitation, even though my ideal family was only two kids and even though just one cycle is already expensive. What makes me hesitate the most is of course the failure rate of HT. Right now, my GD is getting better and I'm sure it will be even better once DS2 actually arrives (except for maybe a few relapses if I get insensitive comments about his gender or when I see baby girls). So if we decide to go for HT afterwards, it will sort of re-trigger the whole girl obsession and if HT fails, well, not only don't you have your DG, but you also parted with a LOT of money. Kwim?
