Natural Methods to Conceive a Boy


Hi All.

My DH and I had our first in September '08. We will be ttc in July/August for a Spring baby. I am soooo excited. We have a girl, so I'm hoping for a boy to complete our family. I tried all sorts of natural methods to conceive a girl (I got her on the first shot, so I'd like to think I did something right). This time, we will be using different natural methods in hopes to get a boy.

Has anyone already purposefully tried and successfully conceived a boy? Any tips you can share? I found a bunch of things online... more suggestion than I found for a girl, but I'd like to know what people think would work best.

Thanks!

ive read online somewhere that youre suppose to hold on the sex until a day before OV so the boy sperms (they swim faster) can get up there first.

dunno if its true though =)
goodluck!

your chances are 50/50! there is talk of having sex earlier for a boy and later for a girl but given than spermies live for up to a week in there, i suspect the success stories are more coincidence. After all, half of them are likely to succeed, right? I think you just get what you get.

Hi Girls
I have a DS althou didn't try specifically for a boy....
I have a book about choosing the sex of your baby-the natural way, which I picked up when starting this ttc journey....we now really don't mind either/or....just a healthy, sticky bud is all we long for.

For a boy....
1) The man's genitals should be kept cooler in boxer shorts and loose trousers.
2) Any intercourse occuring before O must be protected.
3) Judge O by temp rise rather than by CM...have on the day of the rise and if it
goes up in two stages the day after the intial rise as well.
4) Avoid sex for the 2days prior to O.

Foods to get a boy....
As much salt as possible: salted butter, salted & smoked meats.
2eggs weekly
All Fish and Meats
White bread
Pasta, Rice
Milk-free puddings & Sauces
All fresh fruit particularly potassium rich bananas and fresh pineapple.

Forbidden foods while trying for a boy...
Milk in any form - butter, cheese, yogurt
Shellfish, molluscs
Wholemeal Bread
Nuts,
Cocoa,
Chocolate & Mustard.

Good luck girls...those of you that are serious about trying to tip the odds in favour of a Lil Prince...I hope you're successful...it would be interesting to find out if it works.

We weren't trying for either sex but we just so happened to fall in the guidelines for trying for a boy and got a boy. We had sex the day I ovulated in the morning and I believe the day after. I had an orgasm which is supposed to make it more "boy friendly" down there. My husband also drinks diet coke like it's going out of style (I guess caffeine is supposed to give boy sperm a jolt). Oh, and he wears boxers haha!
