Someone else posted this today but the post didn't work out and some people could not see/comment on it so reposting.

Study finds obese men are up to 27% more likely to father a son | Daily Mail Online (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-3246948/If-want-girl-hubby-watch-weight.html)

This is a bogus study IMO. It is done in people undergoing fertility treatments which tell us nothing about real world results.

I can guarantee ya based on my observations that obese guys make more girls. By far and away. Super skinny guys can also make a lot of girls, but most guys in the middle make boys.

as someone with 2 girls with an ex that was really skinny when i got pregnant, and a husband who is on the heavy/obese end and also had 2 girls i would say i agree with you atomic. Another observation about 'men in the middle' so to speak is ex's brother...extremely fit and healthy...so id say thats a middle type situation..hes 100% not skinny but all his bulk is muscle and he works out and eats 'gym food' all the time...had 2 boys with his wife.

I'm trying not to get too excited about my DH's weight gain then! He is only 5lbs away from being considered obese. He is a full 20-25lbs heavier than he has ever been!

:agree: My husband had to be at least 50 lbs more when we got our girl than 3 of our 4 boys.

My DH has 2 boys
and we are having our first son together.
He has always been underweight and skinny.

Likewise my own father was extremely skinny and bony when he and my mom had my 2 brothers...and had started putting weight on when they got pregnant with me.
