Need help:TTC a Girl

Postby daniela » Sun May 08, 2005 12:52 am


Please don't think that I am crazy for asking this but I am starting to think about ttc again after 3 years of dealing with severe p/c and emergency c-section at 34 weeks. I have been diagnosed with MTHFR mutation(heterygious or whatever its called)and a blood clot disorder.I have a beautiful healthy 3 year old son and I always saw myself with 3 boys(which I adore) and 1 girl to be close to like I am to my mom. Considering the * that I went through with my first pregnancy, my high-risk doctor told me that I'd be lucky to have just 2 children, so now I have become much more demanding to what I want: a girl to balance our family and that is it, no more children.
Crazy question is: A close freind who just got pregnant with a girl has extra clomid pills she's offering me to take which she swears would guarantee a girl. I have never taken any medication before and would be embarrased to talk about it(the reason of taking it) with my high-risk doctor. Would any of you take this risk? Thanks for your replies!
