Quoting NurseLindsey:" LOL DH wants a girl. IUI goes against shettles method for a girl. Boo. "


which is why I have DS...



ETA: That didn't quite sound right. I love that baby boy with all that I am. I just knew that with that method having a DS is probably slightly more likely.

Quoting brodyzmom:" I read the percentage is a lot higher in picking girls than boys..."

Lucky me.. if we end up with a place to do this. I am dying to have a girl here... To be frank I would settle for a healthy boy too. But if I could pick.... :-)

I'm not sure. I've always assumed it had something to do with girls' advantage of being hardier sperm not mattering when they're all just thrown in a petri dish. It's just by a small percentage though.

Fortunately for me, my hubby does not care whether it is a girl or a boy. He actually is not crazy about this idea of having one more kid. But I really want one and he is OK with it since he knows I want one more child. We only have one so far. and he has agreed to three before we got married.
I also appreciate that he is OK with us spending money on it provided he doesn't really want it in the fist place. I stopped working when I got pregnant with our son. So it is only him working now. How crazy it is that insurance does not consider infertility to be an issue.

Random question, but how is it working w/ your DH?! I give you lots of credit! Don't get me wrong... love my DH, but I feel like I'd lose my shit if I worked side by side with him full time! Especially during all of the infertility crap. God love you! Lol

Well, I'll say it's 50/50 for us. Half the time it's great, mainly bc he can never have an employee that will care as much about the growth/profitability of the practice. I work hard to make sure we are successful. The other half of the time, we bring personal issues in and we both want to rip each other's heads off. This was one of those mornings...

I refuse to go back to hospital nursing for that reason, EVERYONE who isnt a part of the staff gives the nurses a terrible time, I started off in a hospital and refuse to ever go back, I rather work for red cross and make less.

That makes sense. 50/50 is a good balance! It sounds like your DH appreciates what you do. Time w/ your girlfriends or relaxing alone must feel extra nice at times though!

Mine does too. Can't blame him. Poor guy is surrounded by girls with our 9 month old and 2 teenage foster girls.

Well, my house is full of testosterone but DH wants someone to carry on his name. He has 2 sisters, so it's him or nothing...

I know it's stupid. My body is broken and need to be fixed. Last time I check my uterus and ovaries were organs in my body. You can live without a gallbladder or appendix but insurance covers that if you need surgery to remove it.
