I have spent too much time in recent weeks researching gender selection, and I'm feeling an heavy sense of sadness. We have the most beautiful boy in the entire world, and we want another child - boy or girl - but I can't forget how I felt the first time around. It wasn't until the u/s that I realized I'd only conceived of life with girls. Now that I've had a boy, I realize how clueless and foolish I was - I can't imagine life without the energy, curiosity, spunk and sweetness of this beautiful boy.

But here I am, thinking about the 2nd child, and I fear the same reaction except worse, if this is our last child. I'm researching PGD but don't even know where to start, how to find the right doctor to even consider it. And I'm not young, so it isn't like I can spend months pondering this.

Should I really look into PGD, or wait until the 3rd child if needed? From your experiences ladies, did GD get worse after boy or girl #2 - and did you regret not going HT?
