Ive heard that boys are more common because the blast from a scientific pov looks better and so is more likely to be picked for implantation.

I however got a girl

First pregnancy was IVF ICSI Identical Twin Boys - Now in heaven.
Second pregnancy was IVF ICSI Frozen Boy
Third pregnancy was IVF ICSI Frozen Boy from same egg collection as second pregnancy.
