Hi Ladies

I have 3 little boys, and would love nothing more then to give them a sister.
I went in to TTC this time around to try for just a girl!! Bought the shettles book & the Hazel Philips book. After reading that you need AT LEAST 6 months worth of charting etc it put me off lol im too impaitent!!
You have to do everything by the book otherwise it wont work. Boys are alot easier to concieve, where as with girls you have to know when you O and not BD any closer then 2 days before that!! So it could take forever!! There are alot of sucess storys. I guess its just how badly you want a certain sex. I really really really want a girl, but the more i've thought about it i just want a baby. Hopefully i get my girl

I was going to use only 0+12 only, than I changed my mind to doing both, and now I'm just thanking about BD every other day which we would be BD through O. There is some ladies that have BD through O and they have conceive their girls. The timing was just getting a little stressful for me and I have troubles with my cycles. I'm also TTC after having a tubal reversal so getting pregnant would be a miracle in its self! Are you using any of the douches? I used a store bought vinger douche last month a hour before we BD. I'm not sure if I 'm going to use one this month or not. Some ladies says it kills the sperm.I'm not sure if it does. I'm using sylk,fans,lavender,going outside,and a girl dress under the bed. I'm going to have hubby take a hot shower before BD.

mmmmmmmmmm Ive not used douche's as Im unsure about them-I mean how to make them when it use them (how to use them etc) I know you can make vinegar or lime ones. I dont think we can buy them in a shop here.

I think Im going to BD once 2 days before OV then also at ov+12 to give me the chance of both practices. With DS I BD every day. Im also getting hubby to have very hot baths before it and abstain for 7 days before BD xxx

I know people say as long as the baby is healthy, it shouldn`t matter, but I don`t think theres any harm in trying for a certain gender. My OH and I have 2 beautiful boys, and I would really like someone I could dress up in pink, so I`m hoping for a girl. I`ve actually read about this method called the shuttle method. It says that the girl swimmers are slower, but stronger, and the boy swimmers are faster, but weaker. The girl swimmer survive longer than the boys. And if you have intercourse days before ovulation, your girl swimmer would still be alive to hit the egg when it drops, whereas your boy swimmer would have died off. They recommend this because if you have intercourse during ovulation, your boy swimmer would most likely be the one to penetrate the egg first because they are much faster than the girls. These are according to the shuttles method. I`m not sure how accurate it is, but people have claimed success from it.

Hi mommyno3 thats the shettles method your talking about. We are trying that along with another lesser known method called o+12 and also change my diet and using supplements to create the right PH for girly

Also dh is having hot baths and we are abstaining from until 2 days before ov and then again until 0+12 to give us the best chance.

Funny I was thinking about it today and I would really love another wee boy too for my other baby to have a brother but I cant resist the thought of pink dresses and dancing lessons xxx

ladies I hope you are all aware that it is your oh's sperm that decides the sex of a baby so i would think it better for him to try the suppliments

I am 4w 3d preggo with #3. We already have two girls so I thought I would try and sway my chances more to a boy this time. Of course, like you said the most important thing to me is just having a baby and having it be healthy boy or girl. But I dont see any harm in trying some "boy methods". We BD very close to ovulation as possible without actually me already ovulating(there is an O+12 method where you are more likely to have a girl), so I think we BD several hours to a day before ovulation and just one time. We used egg whites which are very alkaline(you want it to be 9.0-9.9 ph) and mixed it with a little preseed to get the perfect alkaline as my egg whites were about 10 ph. I bought ph strips off of indigo.com which were easy to read. I had heard of also changing your diet to alkaline foods but it is very restrictive, but that is just to change your vaginal ph which the egg white did for me anyway, but Im sure both would be even better. Also I had an O right before BD which changes your PH to more alkaline. Doggy style too. Made sure DH didnt take hot showers. Also its best for him not ejaculate 3-4 days before you BD that way there is a higher concentration of Y sperm. Any more days than that there is a higher concentration of X sperm. We only managed 2 days since I ovulated earlier than I thought I would. I think thats about it. Oh, and eating more potassium and sodium. I didnt do great on that but I did increase my intake overall.

And yes Ladygecko it is the sperm that decides the gender, but once its in your vagina, if you are too acidic you will kill of the male sperm. Also, your egg when released has some kind of chemical make up to it and when you eat alot of calcium and magnesium then it attracts the female sperm, if you eat a lot of potassium and sodium it attracts the male sperm. Also timing of intercourse is very important. For a girl you want to BD 4-5 days before ov, for a boy you want to 12-24 hours before. Girl sperm are slower but live longer, boy sperm are faster but die quicker. Also there is the O+12 method for a girl. When it comes to sperm there is a small number of female sperm that are the fastest(thus the O+12), just after that there is the large amount of male sperm which are fast. After that there is the rest of the slow female sperm(majority of X sperm are slow) which take the longest to get there.
