Biologists and Staticians... what's going on here? There hasn't been a female born in my husband's family in two generations. Help solve the brothers' debate about what's causing this, and what the odds of our pregnancy being male or female is.

My side of the family - I'm female, have a brother and sister. No cousins, no other kids etc. My husband's maternal half-uncle has a little girl.
Pertinent Info -
Husband's paternal side:
Nan and Pa had two girls and a boy.
Female A - no kids
Male - 4 sons
Female B - 3 sons (too young to have thier own kids)
Male's four sons have thus far had:
Son 1 - 4 sons (ID twins + 2)
Son 2 - 1 son
Son 3 - No kids
Son 4 - We're pregnant.
Statistical fluke? Stacked deck? What's happening here?
