Encouraging Signatures (Siggies)

When I see the siggies at the bottom of people's posts I like to compare them to my family make-up. 95% of you ladies know I wanted either an only-child boy, or two boys. Currently we have an 11 month dd and are up in the air about whether or not to have another one, or skip straight to adoption.

 

Anyways, I know your  G  ---> B make-up may not be what you wanted, but I just wanted to post that it is encouraging to see the G ---> B siggies on posts from Disneybride13, AlphaCentauri82, Chickfromaus, Twoperfectmiracles, Quigs227, meghan12, and blondhaley. I know there are more, and I'm not dissing anyone else's familes. Period. I just find seeing the "proof" that we could still have a boy after a girl to maybe push us to possibly try again.

 

Anyone else examine siggies?

Natalie Gayle is here (7-6-11) She is amazing, but I wish I could have broken the girl "streak" for our families (last male was born 27 years ago).

Possibly TTC boy again in 2015, but saving for adoption. The baby Jensen T. account!

Thank You God and Our Lady!

I always look at them too, and I was hoping I would have gotten the BBBG, like I see so often on here..  but I got BBBB. 

So, no G at the end for me..  Happy Wink

Good luck!!   Hope you get your SON!

hey sad dad!!!

i just wanted to take the time to write to you.  reading your post it sounded like my husband could have written it.  From the moment we found out we were pregnant with our first, my DH let me know he wanted a boy badly.  He wouldn't even let me talk about having a girl because he thought it would "jinx" it.  When we found out our daughter was indeed a girl, the look on my DH's face was one of sheer disappointment.  I felt horrible because I didn't know what to say or do to make him feel better.  Long story short, he obviously loves our daughter to pieces.  We unexpectedly found out we were pregnant again and are having a boy.  We just found out the other day.  The tear of joy that went down his cheek was one I will remember forever.  It is possible to have a boy! we didn't sway or anything this baby was a total suprise so there is hope, I promise!

SWEET im a rockstar!!!!! Lol I have OCD, I think much of my problem with a boy after girl is that I convinced myself I was having another girl based on the same exact pregnancy symptoms. The OCD took over from there Before falling pregnant, while knowing a sister would be great, I had not preference either way I even recall at an earlier scan being asked by the tech what I "wanted" and I replied "well, I already have my girl! So either way is fine!"

Almost everyone I know in real life who has one of each had a girl and then a boy. I can only think of a handful of people who have had a boy and then a girl. This is not to discourage those people who have boys and want a girl. I have seen it happen esp with my friends who have 3 BBG. It may just be coincidence in my life but I see it all the time. Have you considered hi-tech since you are so desperate for a boy? I realize it is expensive but so is adoption.

Hi SadDad,

It seems I see a lot of pp in here and in real life so it's very possible to have a girl then a boy!  I swayed girl for my daughter and got her.  With the 2nd I didn't sway but a lot of the things at that moment in my life naturally/unintentially swayed me boy.  Sex right at ovulation, boy diet friendly foods, my husband hadn't "released" for a while....and lots of other things.  I ended up with a boy and I will never know if I got my kids from swaying or just that happened to be the sperm that made it first!  Whatever the case the intentional girl sway and unintential boy sway gave me the gender of that sway.  I would love to see the same thing happen for you!

I really want to see you get your son!  I can't wait to read about your continuing journey. Good Luck Clover

Almost everyone in my family who had a girl first has had a boy second.  My parents, my sister, my cousin, etc....  There are a few with girl/girl, but mostly girl/boy.  I am the only one in my family with more than 2 kids of the same gender.

 Hi Sad Dad,

I totally understand how you are feeling. I was a mum desperate for a boy or 2 boys so needless to say when i found out it was a DD i was slightly upset but fell in love with my daughter whilst being pregnant and once she was hear she took my breathe away. I then thought about a 2nd child and was desperate to have a boy, but i also found confort in the fact that should i have another girl my DD would have a sister and they would grow up thick as theives. And there is nothing sweeter than seeing two little girls pottering around together getting into mischeif. Anyway as you can see we did get lucky and we got a boy so it can happen. I think when you have one sex and are desperate for another you automatically think you wont get the gender you desire. However you may just get your boy like i did. I wish you luck in whatever you decide to do.

also, I just wanted to add that when I got home from work today I talked to my husband and he admitted that he had resigned himself to the fact that he would have all girls after having our daughter.  he said that after we found out we were having another baby, he had just assumed in his head it would be a girl, and look at how wrong he was!  he also told me that now that he knows hes having a son, it makes him appreciate all things "girly girl" a million times more...not sure if that makes any sense or not, but there is hope! 

i think if i were you, i would go for it and try for another baby when you and your wife are ready because the odds are at least 50% that you will have a boy.  I think the statistic is actually somewhere between 53-56% that women who have a daughter first have a son second, I believe I read that on here somewhere.

Agreeing with a lot of pp, I too find the most common family pattern of gender to be a girl first then a boy.  I was friends with a lot of girls who were the oldest child then had a little brother, and now most of my friends and acquaintances and FB friends (who aren't from this site that is) who are having kids have a girl first, then have a boy.  And just seeing kids in real life all around the place it seems like everyone has a girl then a boy.  Is your wife breastfeeding still?  If you guys ttc right now, I think you'd have an increased chance of having a boy, as it also seems like if people have a kid 16 to 22 months after their previous kid usually have a boy.  I'd say do a little bit of swaying and try for a boy.  Just the world in general seems to be proof that you've got a great chance!

Me too. I almost feel guilty for having two of each.

Sad Dad -I know you have been pessimistic about being able to conceive a boy, but I think you have an excellent chance, as I conceived BGBG and seem to have an opposites pattern going. :)
