The grandsons were outnumbering the granddaughters by about three to one and it's evening out.  Interesting coincidence that the pregnancies were so predominantly boys and now girls.

Streaky, much like JB and M’s family.

I found out that I had a morphine intolerance after recovering from fibroid surgery in the hospital back in 2009.  I spray-paint vomited the wall and felt bad for the nurse because she was upset about cleaning it and made it known to me.  🤣  Well, I had a six or seven inch incision, and vomiting felt like a living hell, so she could probably have felt better if she thought about it that way.

My father had a reaction like that to morphine.For me,morphine makes me itch.The most intense awful itch ever.I feel like I could scratch my skin off.

I had a partial hysterectomy in 2005,they had me on a morphine pump.I did not have any pain,but later I woke up,itching.My OB-Gyn changed my pain reliever.

On my side, the first 5 born were girls. Since then, there was a boy, a girl, three boys, and the final girl.

On my husband's side, we have four girls, then three boys, another girl and then another three boys.

Me too. I always refuse it after that experience.

Here’s my parents’ grandkids: girl, 6 boys. 1 GG daughter ( in that order)

In my previous life as someone who worked in a public school, I know some years the overall class skewed strongly female, and other years, strongly male. This was a school with two classes of each grade level.

I know someone who is a pilot that names his first daughter Skye. So there's an idea. 

Plus their last name makes her sound like a discount airline. But that won't be a problem for the Jabbie baby.

So I have a bit of a weird question. In John and Abbie's gender sex reveal, all that confetti ended on the grass. Do they clean it up off the grass, or is it biodegradeable, or do they wait for water to break it up? How would you clean it up?

My husband is one of five, one girl and four boys.

Grandkids are girl, boy, girl, girl, girl, girl, girl, boy, girl, girl. 8 girls and 2 boys. Such a huge swing from lots of brothers. With one brother yet to have kids.

We just did a similar one for our second child and it was biodegradable... I think most onbthe market are

As a pilot JD is more likely to have girls than boys.

For the Duggar girls, given that there is research that indicates the blood pressure may play a part in the sex of the child perhaps the Duggar daughters have a higher blood pressure?

On my dad's side the cousins go 2 boys and 1 girl, ending with 2 boys, 20 cousins total. So far the great grandkids on that side have been 1 boy, 1 girl, 2 boys, 2 girls, 3 boys, 3 girls and now 1 boy and 1 girl. Kinda interested to see if the pattern continues.

@Someone Out There what is this research?? The sex of the child is determined by whether the sperm carries an X or Y sex chromosome. It is decided as soon as one sperm fertilizes the egg.*

*excepting those intersex people who have additional influences on their sexual organ and sex hormone development.

@Someone Out There @theotherelise I think it's only true for fighter pilots, not regular pilots. But there have been studies showing that fighter pilots have daughters more often than sons.

I think it has to do with the G-forces. I wonder if the same effect could be achieved by extreme roller coasters. If you send your male SO out roller-coastering all day, are you more likely to conceive a girl?

@SorenaJ yeah, sorry, I've seen the pilot thing. It was this that I thought was confusing:

"For the Duggar girls, given that there is research that indicates the blood pressure may play a part in the sex of the child perhaps the Duggar daughters have a higher blood pressure?"

I googled it and it looks like what @Someone Out There might have gotten confused by was that blood pressure of a pregnant mom can sometimes correlate with the sex of the gestating fetus. But blood pressure is not determinative of sex.

On my dad’s side it goes:

Dad’s generation (his paternal side only) - Boy, Girl, Boy (Uncle), Boy (Dad), Girl

My Generation - Girl, Girl (Sister), Girl (Me), Boy (Brother)

Next Gen - Boy, Boy (nephew), Girl (my daughter), Boy (nephew), Boy (my son)

Not sure about the exact order on mom’s side since she has a lot of cousins, but the breakdown is like this:

Mom’s generation (paternal and maternal sides) - 9 boys (including my two uncles), 6 girls (including my mom and Aunt)

My Generation (no maternal first cousins for us) - Girl, Girl, Boy

Next Gen - Boy, Girl, Boy, Boy

It’s cool to see how they can differ between generations, but I’m pretty sure those breakdowns are just random chance.

Submarines have more girls than boys. Wolf boy had a boy, but they were thinking girl before the ultrasound because of that.

I do not have my school external hard drive of research papers handy... but there is evidence of more girls being born to women in hardships/war/famines.. with the hypothesis being that the X chromosome-d sperm/XX zygotes/fetuses are hardier and more able to withstand the hardships, such as the mother starving. Keyword there is *born,* XY and XX fetuses were conceived about equally, but the ones surviving to be born into viable babies were statistically skewed toward female. 

I kept the research because in my spare, nerdy time I wanted to work out if this data could be applied to women now; for example, with the rise of the keto diet are we seeing more females born because mom is being "starved" of carbohydrates? Or women with actual eating disorders - do they have more girls if they remain fertile? With the current political climate and immense stressors and terrorism and gun violence, similar to war times, are we having more females? Again, never got around to my own data collection and correlation does not always equal causation but it was interesting food for thought. Figured I'd share.

Yes, I was talking about the correlation between sex and blood pressure.  The X/Y sperm would determine the sex, however there could be a correlation between what 'sticks' and the sex of the children.  Hence my comments about blood pressure.

      I am beyond angry at Mr. Briefly's mother. My daughter posted a comment on her own facebook page that discussed parellels between nazi Germany and what is happening today as far as immigrants, detention camps, etc. My MIL left one of the rudest, meanest things I have ever seen. She told me daughter not to post things like that on her own page, she said horrible things. I just posed a long comment to my MIL, and told her that she has destroyed her relationship with her granddaughter and probably any hope of one in the future. My daughter is so hurt, and she is angry. And so am I. I try to be forgiving, but I'm not really inclined to forgive this one. Maybe I will be, but my daughter probably won't ever forgive her for this one. OK, rant over - and thank you for listening.

      Did another photo shoot this morning (strictly trade for prints, because it's a fun hobby), this one for Paul McCartney/Another Day.  one of those incredibly pretty little songs that hides just devastating lyrics behind beautiful harmony:  As she posts another letter to the sound of five People gather 'round her and she finds it hard to stay alive It's just another day.  There's a furniture shop near where I live that sells second hand and "unique" furniture/decor.  They had a neat little vanity someone built out of a Singer sewing machine table so we did the photos there, trying to convey the world weariness of the lyrics in a single photo.  It felt good.  We'll see how the prints turn out.
      It always surprises me how well Neptune and I work in these kinds of situations.  We'd had one conversation about this shoot, ten days or a couple weeks ago.  A few key words, couple props that he specifically wanted, not much else.  We walked into the building and started setting up without needing to really talk very much.  Just feels easy and in sync in a really comfortable way.

      I went to get a snack and ran into someone someone who asked if I went outside for the two fire drills today. What fire drills? This is the third time fire alarms went off everywhere in a building except where I was. Why does this keep happening to me?

      Has anybody else had issues with the latest Windows update?  Windows 10 has screwed up a lot of computers, mine included. Apparently,.Microsoft knew that it was going to cause problems and released it anyway. Now they talk like they are working on a problem.  OK, so I guess they are going to pay for the repairs to my laptop since I had to take it in to be fixed?  Due to their stupidity in releasing a known problem and not having a patch ready, but still they should not have released it knowing it was going to do this!!

      Peanut likes sitting on her hidey-house! She’s eating a bit of honeydew melon which the pigs have never had before (although they have had watermelon). 

      There is still a bit of an abscess left; it’s reduced a bit in size but not completely. Our nearest vet clinic is mainly cat/dog related although the woman we’ve been seeing does have an interest/knowledge about small animals. We’re going to contact another clinic who are an exotics centre; our vet said that she could do a slightly more invasive procedure but that it’d be best if we took Peanut to a specialist place. 
      The vet also said today that we can reunite her with Cinnamon and Grace; there was no evidence of a bite mark but we’ll still have to be careful because of where the abscess is. The main reason we kept her separate was so she could recover post-sedation when the drainage site needed to properly heal. 
      I’m not worried about her health-wise in any major sense, but it’ll be a relief when it’s dealt with!

      Received news (from my dermatologist) that I tested positive for ANA, which indicates I have some type of auto-immune problem. But I can't see a rheumatologist until my primary care refers me, and I don't have an appointment with primary care until the 28th. And who knows how long it's going to take me to get into a specialist. So now I just get to sit around thinking about what's potentially wrong with me and being scared shitless about it.

      The substitute pastor dislikes me and my candor and forthrightness. As he was giving pre-worship announcements, I needed to blow my nose. Did it so quietly! — but he interrupted himself with “gesundheit!” — and I felt embarrassed and in retaliation rolled my eyes or scowled every time he looked my way during sermon. Also held subsequent nose-clearings for when HE spoke during service. It felt snarky--right at first, now I’m just mad that these patriarchal bozos foul up the peace of music and hymns and prayers with their attitudes and actions. Thanks to FJ for providing this little forum-ette. I feel better for venting.
