I Take It Back, Everybody is Having Boys

By Melanie Blodgett |

photo of baby stretching A month ago I wrote a post about how every pregnant woman I knew was having a girl. I take it back, I take it all back. All eight of those women are still having girls with February and March due dates but after that, it seems to be the year of the boys.

I go to church with the same congregation every week and currently eight women are expecting close to the same time I am. Eight! And guess what? Six of them are boys the other two we’re still waiting to hear. What in the world? I guess it’s just balancing things out.

Mostly I’m excited that baby Blodgett will have so many little buddies to play with. I’m just hoping that we don’t all want to name them the same thing name.

Does/will your child have a lot of kids born close to the same time? Have you noticed waves in gender like this?

    On my husband’s side of family every single person who has had a baby in the last year or is having one had/is having a boy except us. That is 5 out of 6 babies which seems like a high percentage of boys to me.

    We are having another boy:~)

    With both my first son, and the son I’m going to have in about 6 weeks, I’ve noticed a MUCH higher percentage of boys born around the same time… I know 7 ppl who are currently pregnant, plus two more who recently had babies. The two babies already born are girls, everyone still pregnant is having boys except 1. That’s 66% boys..

    We are expecting our first child, a boy, this January of 2012. He will have 4 male cousins all within a year apart! Not to mention out of the 3 girls at my work that are expecting, all pregnant with boys! I don’t know one person out of 8 or so, that isn’t having a 2012 boy!
