    Facebook research

    Hi Friends,

    I am due in August and wanted to join the chat. Hoping for a blue bean!

    I have 2 dds and was tired of overhearing people say that if you have 2 of one gender, you are 75% likely to have the same. I know that isn't true based on the Chance/ingender article. SO, I went through all of my facebook friends who have 2 dds and then took note of their third, and after 45 samples (which is a lot, when you think about it), and it was a very slight lean towards GGB, vs GGG. I am sure there are similar results when you look at 2DS followed by DS or DD.

    I was wondering if anyone else wanted to see what results they get. Hoping that swaying gives me an edge over the 50/50 chance.

    I have one younger brother and I've had 6 boys! I read that the chances of having 6 of one gender is only 3% though and 7 is 1.7% so were still hoping for a DD!

    Thank you for sharing this!!! We should start a Facebook research project - all of us have tons of friends and family members we can quickly add up, and while it's true that some of us do know a disproportionate number of people who are all boy/all girl moms and swayers/HT, I still think we could get a pretty good representation to finally put that "75%" bull crap number to rest!

    I can tell ya right now, my mom has GGB, my great grandma had GGGGGGBB, and I know a girl from IG who had GGGGGGGGBB!!!
    !!! Questions?? Check out the NEW and improved Complete Index !!!

    Is it sad if I say I've already done similar FB research?! I have a list on my phone all ready to go (maybe I need to find a new hobby!!!) 7 GGB's and 6 GGG's.
    My mum is included in that, she had GGB.

    haha. Love it. But, even though that is a small sample size, it is basically 50% (with a little lean towards GGB, which is what I saw too). Everytime I hear of another GGG family, a GGB family is made known to me too. Not 75% My list had around 45 families and it was close to 50%, leaning GGB.
