View Full Version : Do you think this would effect our boy in some way?
Hi all! My self and my fiance have a two year old boy(fiance is not his biological dad), he has a six year old step sister and he has a baby sister due in ten weeks, we are planning on having one more after dd is born and my fiance has been told by his doctor he produces more x sperm and has a higher chance of producing female babies then producing males. This doesnt really bother him too much. But we are concerned that if we do happen to have another girl that it will effect our boy in some way we are worried he might feel alone being the only boy.
Why don't you ask him how he'd feel having only sisters.
I would seriously doubt it. I had three brothers, unfortunately one passed away but I'm still the only girl and I loved it. It would have made no difference to me what 'bits' they have between their legs, they're my brothers... I love them!
A lot of people in this world are the only sister/brother and we're fine :)
My DH is the only boy in his family and has 3 sisters - they are all very close and it has not had a negative effect on him at all (in fact i think he quite likes being the only boy ;)).
I was the only girl with 2 brothers (have a sister but she was born when i was a teenager so grew up the only girl) and i loved it. I always got my own room :laughing:

how did the dr determine this? i smell bullpoo
I don't think so..... especially cos he's not going to be the youngest. My brother is the youngest with 3 older sisters. He's been babied his whole life. I don't this is necessarily cos of the 3 sisters though.
My brother is the only boy of 4 and he's the youngest and it hasn't negatively effected him. I wouldn't worry too much.
My bro is the only boy in the fam. Actually with a similar age gap's that you have. 5 yrs between my oldest sister and him, my bro, 2 years on and I am here and 5 years after that my sis is born. He's not affected by having 3 sis- except he is rather protective. :o But I think my Dad did place too much pressure on him to be the 'man'.
I reckon it'd be fine. Normal for children is whatever is normal for them. He won't know what it's like to not have baby sisters.
Only thing is if he's anything like my brother when they become teenagers he'll be just as stressed as daddy ;)
In a way that he's eldest it would be 'easier' I dunno, cos you hear about boys who get dressed up as a girl by a gabble of older sisters. But even those guys reflect on that time with humour and affection.
