    Thankyou Netti for that. I don't really understand all of it, but it's such good news that there is a loophole and that there are DR's out there supportive. When I suffered GD during my pregnancies I was in a really bad place, and I struggled to find someone who specialised in it. When I finally opened up to get help I was made to feel like I was the only one on the planet who felt like this and it was not normal, a criminal even.

    When I hear about these Dr's who are supportive I get a warm fuzzy feeling inside . I really hope that he can help you.

    Let us know how you go emshe.

    Thanks Kawazza. I was in a bad place with pregnancies 5 and this current one. We really hoped and prayed and i asked so much of DH even having more kids. Ive made a peace now this is what it is yet i have good days and bad days. It was so hard to have the hope build up and then be disappointed and guilty all at the same time.

    DH has said he doesn't want more regardless of what the Dr says but Ive told him Im at least speaking to him. I said I wouldn't ask any more of him only if we could guarantee just one time. But ill see how my phone call goes.

    Its well and truly normal. Thats like trying to tell a gay person that how they feel isn't normal in my opinion. Theres so many people that don't talk about it due to the prejudice and judgements and its so sad.

    I will update you when I have spoken with him. I also contacted Genea, however I won't hear until next week sometime.

    Hi! I tried calling Dr Malloy today but no answer. Will try again tomorrow. I currently have 2 boys and would love a girl. Have considering going to the USA but DH isnt 100%, if a locally was an option it would totally put the odds in my favour trying to convince hubby!

    Try this number (07) 30153130. I believe this is the number for his rooms.

    He is back next week but they may be able to schedule something.

    Great thanks! Ill try that number tomorrow. So do you have a phone consult scheduled? Where r you located? Im in Melbourne. Do you know what will be discussed during the phone consult? Is gender selection actually going to be an option or is he still investigating?

    I was never swaying hardcore but made some minor changes this time round.

    Iíve been following your story here but didnít know it had been so long in your family - wow! Do you know if that means itís a genetic problem somehow? I really dont know how it works but just noticed Throwawy Panther I think it was gone to HT and had confirmation (I think) that the reason she gets all girls is a genetic problem with the males ... I just skim through so not positive but thatís how it read... so interesting..

    I honestly think if the US is doing it, Australia will have to catch up before too long. We copy them, companies want to make money.. itís surely inevitable, just not sure how long...

    I have an early phone consult scheduled on the 23rd Jan. Im in Sydney. As per my phone call with the receptionist, they haven't gotten far with the legal side of things and to not get my hopes up.

    Im pretty sure thats what he will say too and he may give a timeline regarding the legal side of things etc and maybe when to expect an answer. I am wondering if he will probe my history and if theres any basis there to have any treatment done. My brother inlaw has one child, also a boy.

    I agree. We will have to play catch up with them. The guidelines are actually interesting to read as they also try to support the reasons for family balancing which are pointed out as further discussion topics (but when these will be discussed it did not say).

    It kind of makes me wonder if there is something going on with genetics. Particularly with a still birth of a girl too. I believe there was only the 1 sister born in that generation aswell. In all honesty, if i was to conceive naturally and it was a girl, Id probably be on the edge awaiting delivery to ensure all was safe. My brother in law has one boy. My mother in law 3 boys (she had a termination for her first due to getting measles when pregnant) and we have 6. I was sure out of 6 somewhere we would get out girl

    Ok just found the family tree from that generation. There were 9 children. 3 boys, 1 of which died in the same year or ? At birth.

    6 girls, 1 of which also died in the same year.

    I have a sister. She has 2 girls. My mum is one of 3 girls in her family.

    Strange dynamics
