Hi there any one of you out there have any baby girls ? just wondering if any of you can give advice on trying to conceive a girl as i have 5 boys ..ive read that if you have 3 days prior to ovulation your chances are higher ? has it worked for any1 ? i think all my boys were conceived on or aroung the time of ovulation because i always timed when ovulation was due to happen ..any info pls ??
Yes they do say that if you only BD several days before ovulation then you have a higher chance of conceiving a girl as the 'girl' sperms are slower but can live longer than the 'boy' sperm.
I also heard that if you are eating less then you are perhaps more likely to have a girl, something to do with the egg being selective over which sperm it allows to penetrate - some remnant of when times were hard and more females born would result in more future births. Though I think this theory is to be taken with a pinch of salt.
It's interesting though, that when I conceived my daughter we BDed 4 days before I usually ovulate (I cannot confirm on which CD I ovulated on that cycle though)
and also I was on a pretty stupidily restrictive diet back then.
I also read that female sperm favour a more acidic environment. But that seems a bit daft to me because I also read that an acidic environment will kill all the sperm. There's a lot of conflicting info out there, but there are some theories about eating different foods which will alter the PH of the vagina making conceiving a particular gender more likely.
Hey Donner! I am also TTC a girl. You should Be bddng on CD 10, 11 and 12. Ph level needs to be between 4-5.5 you van buy diagnostic Ph test strips on amazon. Also eat a lot of corn, beans, broccoli, salmon, blueberries, cranberries, orange juice, cheese especially American and cottage cheese, wheat bread, brown rice, leafy greens, Greek yogurt (Chobani brand best) and you want to avoid pretty much everything else. Look online for a list of acidic foods those u want to eat. You also want to purchase a saliva OPK these are best for conceiving a girl. And last but not least sex positions! You will want to do it missionary as this will deposit sperm closer to the lower part of the cervix where it's more acidic. Female
Sperm can live for up to 4 days in an acidic environment, where as male sperm cannot. And the sad part u don't want to have an O. Sorry it will cause the vagina to be more alkaline which favors the male sperm. Hope this helps u!! Also u will want to start your girl diet at least 6 weeks before trying. I have read a lot about conceiving a girl!
Hey jacobandmaty you should also bd CD12. Make sure to eat an acidic diet and check your Ph level. Test with urine strips can be purchased at amazon. Also get fertile focus microscope this will help tell u when u are 3-2 days from O. It will start to form crystals. The strong Fremont pattern will show ovulation day and this is the day u want to avoid along with the 2-3 days past O. I reccomend watching the video also on you tube on proper way to use the saliva OPK microscope. Also this can be purchased on amazon and can be reused forever! It's only about $36 dollars. You can also purchase Ashley Spencer's ebook on gender selection she has done all the research she had 3 boys and finally got her girl! The diet and sex Positions are also crucial. No positions other than missionary and no orgasms! I hope this helps u!!
Purchase the Fertile Focus Microscope. It's a saliva based OPK. It's very important when conceiving a girl. It shows a distinct ferning pattern on O. When u are close to O u will look through the microscope and see crystal patterns begginging to form. This should be 3-2 days before O. BD CD 10, 11 and 12. No BD day before O , day of O and 2 days after. Make sure u are eating an acidic diet full of chicken, corn, beans, broccoli, cranberries, blueberries, chic peas, orange juice, cheese and Greek yogurts, eat a light breakfast and no carve in the morning. Also drink raspberry lemonade crystal light. Everyday until O. Your ph level needs tO be about 5.5 at highest. You need oh testing strips also. U can get them on amazon along with the fertile focus microscope. If you have any other questions please feel free to message me. I have studied this for 2 years
I concieved a girl by ttc three days prior to ovulation. This gives time for girl sperm to make it to the egg. Boy sperm swim faster but die sooner. Girl sperm swim slower but live longer. Look up shettles method. I mean there really is no way we can predict what we make. However, we can improve our chances and have fun trying. Best of luck on those BFP's! I saw in a post about the great sperm race... You should watch it on Youtube it consists of 6 parts 10 mins each.
