New Addition in AZ

This entry was posted by on Monday, 13 December, 2010 at

The AZ Gentes family is happy to announce that we are expecting an addition to the family. As experienced parents, with 3 daughters, we were surprised and excited to find out that Heidie is pregnant.

We went to an early ultra-sound (at 9 weeks), to find out if we will be having multiples or a single baby. Already having the twins gives us a higher possibility for more multiples. Results show that there was a single heart beat….we were happy with those results 😉  A picture of the ultra sound is on the right.

Everyone that has given an opinion on the sex of the baby, has sided with the Boy. Many people saying that’s their *gut* feeling.  We are planning on finding out, which can happen at around 18-20 weeks into the pregnancy. Feel free to let me know if you have some *revelation* as to a girl or boy.

We were talking around the dinner table the other night, and I had a question that remained unanswered: What is the percentages of having a boy/girl if the first 3 children have been girls (I mean based on history of cases similar to ours) ?  Anyone know the answer? If so, let me know.

Blessings to everyone this Christmas….I hope to send an update on this topic once we have gotten word of whether we will have a boy or a girl.

  1. The chances don’t change for gender, no matter how many you have of each kind already. It’s always 50-50. However, I read a study recently, that showed that really feminine women (who have an abundance or over-abundance of estrogen) give birth to girls at a statistically improbable high rate. Same with masculine women (who have more than average testosterone) — they give birth to more boys.

  2. While generically, for any given birth at any time, the rate does stay close to even, the actual real percentages are always higher (globally) for men (about 51.4%) than women (48.6%). Using the UN Data report on births by gender ( for the years 1953-2008, the detailed stats from births across that time period are:
    Recorded World Population Births 1,505,239,736.57
    Female Births 731,072,331.83 48.57%
    Male Births 774,167,404.73 51.43%
    (these stats don’t include all births, only those recorded by governments).

    Additionally, though the stats are actually true for all births in general, specific odds of gender actually do change with each couple. The most often quoted “science” about gender relates to the studies that were thought to indicate that ovulation timing and intercourse could work together to help allow for gender selection. This was due to the notion that Y chromosome carrying sperm (for males) might not live as long as X chromosome carrying sperm (for females). The general ideas of theory (widely known, but still of some use) can be seen here .

    While those theories haven’t been discounted, the application of them by timing pregnancy has not scientifically proven to produce a specific gender, according to Mayo doctors. You can see their thoughts in a summary article here:

    MOST SURPRISING of all is a study saying that WOMEN EATING BREAKFAST CEREAL have boys. Literally, here is the quote from Mayo : “A 2008 study found that women who ate breakfast cereal daily around the time of conception were more likely to conceive boys, but some scientists question the study’s method of analysis.”

    Go figure 🙂

    That is the broad info out there anywhere…
