    old wives tale: if your male partner eats fish it will be a girl

    I have three girls born September and Oct. 2 boys April and Feb. I guess trying in December for a baby increases the chances of having a girl.

    Statistically not true, considering the natural ratio of male births vs female births is about 105:100. And that is the *natural* ratio for humans, it doesn't take into account parts of the world where parents abort/kill/abandon female babies. In those parts of the world the unnaturally influenced birth disparity can be as high as 118:100.

    Overall statistics across a large population show generally about 105 boys born for every 100 girls.

    You are probably considering your own experience with 3 or 4 births, most of which were girls, and possibly those of close friends or close relatives.  A sample of just 10 or 20 births is not mathematically significant.

    Note the next question on the list. It askes about too many daughters!

    I don't think that it does. Can you provide a source for your assertion?
