 I was just curious if there is a correlation between maternal age and gender makeup.  It seems to me that most of the families I know IRL that have all one gender had their children in their 20s, whereas 'older' mom's who conceived most of their children in their 30s are more likely to have mixed gender.  This is just something I have noticed in my area.  I was wondering if anyone else has noticed the same thing and curious if it holds true here as well.

I didn't vote because I am having a boy in October, but my 3 daughters were all conceived and born in my 20's. My son was conceived a few weeks after I turned 30.

I think it's interesting that had you stopped, you would have fit into my little theory quite well :)

 My first two boys were in my 20s and my last two boys were conceived in my 30s .. so it's 50/50 for me.

I don't have all one gender, but thought I'd throw out that I had a boy and girl 18 mos  apart in my twenties, and then a boy and girl in my thirties.  I really think gender is just ultimately 50/50 anyway you look at it.
