View Full Version : Can some people just not carry a certain gender?
So I have heard this a couple of times but I'm just wondering if anyone else knows anyone or if there is medical info out there about it.
This is my 5th pg. I had a boy then mc then another boy then mc now I'm having another boy. It always makes me wonder if those little angles could of been my girls. So then people turn around and say maybe u just can't carry girls. Obviously I will never know but just wondering if this actually can happen???
I don't believe so, no. But I've been on a gender swaying forum reading up for #3 recently ;) PM me if you want the name :D
I worked with a lady who had 5 girls and had miscarried 3 boys (or possibly more). She was told by her doc that she couldn't carry boys.
However, MCs are unfortunately very common. Yours may also have been boys. Perhaps discuss possibility with your OB?
Thanks for the reply's. Not sure if Df will let us try again. I guess we just need to wait and see how well behaved this little bub will be and take it from there.
It's probably more to do with your dh. He probably has a low female sperm count (X) and lots of male sperm (XY).The gender is determined by his sperm.. I don't really see how a body couldn't carry a certain gender, it was probably more just a bad coincidence with someone miscarrying all boys or all girls.
Yes but it's to do with the father cause he makes the swimmers.
DH's step uncle has a 5% chance of having boys. They stopped trying for a boy after 7 girls.
Men have equal boy/girl sperm so I don't think so no.
I think what CAN happen is that you may carry certain dna/genes that may prevent a certain gender being born, like serious genetic disorders etc.
I have 4 girls and won't let it stop me having more ;)
One of THOSE mums!
I don't think there is medical proof, BUT my mum would say otherwise.
She had 3 girls and miscarried with 7 boys.
Ithink its possible. One of my friends from high school, his mum had four boys and miscarried two girls, one unknown sex.
medically no specific explanation but a friends mum had 5 boys her eldest a little older than me youngest born around time DS was. She couldn't carry girls had at least 8 miscarriages that I could gather from chats with her, far enough along to know none of them boys.
chicken and eggs mum
i had a friend who couldnt carry girls - she had lots of mc around the 12 week mark, all girls. the only two she carried to term were boys.
It is absolutly a possibility! This is why IVF clinics do genetic testing to some peoples embryos. Multiple MC can be caused by mutated embryos, which are sometimes caused by dodgy sperm.
I know a few ladies who had genetic testing done to their embryos and 2 ladies had a gender problem.
I think this is one of thoes questions that are very hard to answer, there are so many reason's why one sex is concieved over the other, the acidity of our mucus, the amount of sperm, how close to ovulation you concieved, for all we know, you have miscarried boys as well
I remember after I lost my first boy DS1, everyone would say to me that maybe I couldn't carry boys to term, and they kept saying that after a early miscarrage with my next pregnancy, but with pregnancy #3, I ended up with a healthy little boy at term, so who knows, i've lost 2 DS's and have had 4 early mc's, my last pregnancy resulted in a girl, was a touch and go pregnancy, but I managed to carry her to half way though the 3rd trimester, I can't say why I lost the others wether it was because they were one sex or the other, as no testing was done, its just one of thoes unfortunate things, that some women have to endure,
((HUGS)) :hugs: for you anyways, sorry to hear about your losses and good luck with the rest of this pregnancy, and you never know, trying again may result in a girl
It is possible, not that you can't carry a certain gender, but that you and your partner are carriers for a sex-linked genetic disorder that is causing all babies of that sex to not be viable. I have only ever heard of this happening with boys though, I don't think there are any sex linked disorders expressed only in girls.
I would say it could be a possibility
I've got 3 boys and I had had 2 M/C's
1 between DS2 and DS3 and another was DS3 's twin
I think they may have been girls? but I don't know
My Nan (my Dads mum) had 7 boys and I believe lost a girl (not really talked about)
I was the 1st girl on my Dads Dad side for over 3 generations
WOW thanks heaps for all the reply's.
And thanks for sharing all the stories. Some of them are really sad xxx
Do you think if we were to try again to maybe see if df's X swimmers are just as strong as the Y's? Or do u think it's just pot luck?
dp n I seen a antenatal/genetic gyno as we had had several m/c's.. My dr thought maybe we couldn't carry girls as we have a ds.. Im currently almost 12 weeks pregnant and am very curious as to this baby genders. The results from the tests we had fine from the gyno come back all good and dp n i's genetic's come back normal..
