"Odds of Having a Girl After 1, 2, or 3 Boys

The odds of having a girl seem decrease after having each boy, but only very slightly. Even after 3 boys, you are only 6.4% more likely to have a 4th boy than a girl."

When I was little, I used to think boys came from one bollock and girls from the other. I was never very good at science.

at the age of (about) 43 after a failure to conceive naturally, she paid for IVF treatment in a last attempt to birth a son ..

IVF was so successful that she became pregnant with quads, no messing there, not twins, not triplets, 'kin quads .. birth time .. out they came .. number 1 .. a girl .. number 2 .... a girl ... number 3 ... a girl .. desperate times .. number 4 ? .. go on guess

boy !!!! .. so eight girls and one lil boy ((:>) .. and she insisted it was all worth it .. one of those 'you could NOT make it up' stories

not even a thought in her head about that ..

Sponsored links:Therefore if the couple had "relations" at the time of ovulation it is likelier to have sex 1. The further back you go before ovulation increases the chances of the baby being sex 2.

Science.

If so, it's a 1/3.

Sponsored links:The answer is 1/3 or 33.333% change of being a boy - that's the only correct answer (although I like the thinking of some posters!)

Other than that 50%
