Thanks Im 100% aware of how it works thanks. The studies we are talking about have shown girl sperm favour an acidic enviroment and boy sperm favour a alkaline enviroment. Therefore the supplements are to create a more hospitable enviroment for your desired gender sperm. My oh does also take cranberry supplements and has changed his diet as he eats the same as me.

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.
oooooo good luck hunny, I hope you got that wee boy in there. Will be interesting to know. Will you find out the sex?

Hi there, I have a 9 month old son who is an absolute joy. We are starting to try this month and although I really don't mind which we have (as long as he/she is healthy) I thought it would be lovely to have one of each. I have been reading up on all this but have got sooo confused. One site says almonds and orange juice for the girl diet and another site says the opposite. Also have read that acidic foods and acid forming foods are different and some highly acidic foods can make you more alkaline once processed by the body (sorry I'm rambling now).
Anyway have decided to up my calcium and fruit intake and leave it at that. Will be interesting to see if any of this works.
Good luck everyone hope you all get the pink or blue you are hoping for. Xxx

Gash02 - where did you get the PH strips from? I had a quick look on ebay without any luck, though I don't know if I was searching for the right thing.
Also just wondering what type of things you & OH are eating in your diet?

BTW - your wedding dress looks stunning

I'm trying for my first, but, like others have said, I'd secretly love to have a girl, but would be happy just to have a little bundle of either colour. So I'm not going 'all out' on ttc a girl, but...

I'm limiting red meat, esp in run up to ov, and thus eating more fish;
I'm trying to keep up a good intake of dairy/calcium;
Not 'encouraging' the big 'O';
Not really bothering so much with dtd after ov for the fast swimmers.

Can someone explain how the O+12 works as I figure 12 days after ov the egg is long since gone or fertilized.

Nice to see someone else on here ttc #1 as most seem to already have boys and now wanting a girl so I was beginning to feel a bit bad and alone wanting a girl when I don't even have any children yet.

The O+12 method is one that advices sex 12 hours after ovulation

helloI bought my ph strips on amazon. they have loads. I also got my ov sticks and pregnancy tests on there plus a book called how to chose the sex of your baby- the natural way and a gendermaker so when I do get pregnant I can do a fun test to see the sex before my scan lol- need to be pregnant first
sal365 I think oj is a definate no no for ttc girls
sizzles o+12 is quite difficult it was created by an australian lady who had 6 boys and used it to get her girl on number 7. you need to know exactly when you ov and then dtd between 12-20 hours after for impact xxx
