Good luck, Nokt.
I refuse to re-open the abortion debate, but any doctor who GUARANTEES a boy or girl is foolish. What they may be doing, which I don't approve of and is a sad waste of medical resources, would indeed be expensive, and not only in terms of moeny. They'd use a form of IVF, creating a form of test-tube baby or, rather, babies, then check the tiny early foetuses, select one of the sex you want, and discard the others. I don't like that idea at all. I think it's far better to hope, and leave it to nature.
