Ultimately there will be male & female sperm there either way so it is luck of the draw, but certain things can apparently increase the nber of one or the other type meaning the odds are slightly in their favour. It must make such a tiny difference though that it's still really down to luck- you'll never have all girl or all boy swimmers so although I'm on the cranberry juice & low choc/cheese I don really think it'll make any difference! Lol
Jeez no O? How do you do that? Kind of reminds me of Christian Grey telling Anastasia when to O and when not to?
After reading your replies, seems like I have lot of homework to do to have that little girl. Lol
Do you guys believe in the Chinese Gender predictor? It was true for my son back in 06.
The diet is the LE diet...... Low everything. It basically means low fat, protein and sticking to 1500- 1800 cals a day, depending on your weight/height. No meat, fish or eggs.
There are tons of other tips so have a look at the genderdreaming website, it's fab. It's a bit confusing at first, but there is a wealth of info on there, when you have a read through it all, it will make sense.
You ladies are right, I don't know if the diet actually works, but there are a lot of ladies on genderdreaming that got their little pink bundles after sticking to the diet and using repheresh/ silk lube to lower PH.
They say timing doesn't work now (DTD 3 days before OV to get a girl) and to DTD at first positive OPK.
I really don't know if it will work for us, but I am willing to give it a try.
I've been on the diet for 9 weeks now and lost a stone (they say loosing weight will help sway pink) and using the rephresh. Also there are tips on there for DH. My DH is also taking licorice root to lower sperm count and frequent release every day and just DTD once when we get my positive on the clearblue fertility monitor/ OPK.
I know all that matters is that we have a healthy baby, but this is our last baby and we are really hoping for a Girl to complete our lovely little family.
We will wait and see then!!!......... I'm due to ovulate around the 15th so fingers crossed!!.
Good luck xx
My story is a little similar. I am a former BNB member that saw me through coming off the pill, getting pregnant, and a few months after. Great support on this site! My son is now 13 months old.
My DH and I are ready for #2! I'm secretly wanting a girl but will be happy with either one. I had the Mirena IUD removed on Nov 27 and started what seemed like a period on the 29th. Just had another cycle on Jan 2 and it just ended. I believe I'm on CD 7. One question, I spotted brown discharge 2 days before a red flow do I count those days? I feel like a newbie again, haha. Anyways, I will be using OPK's soon to see when I ovulate. When I used to be on birth control pills my cycles were pretty regular 28-30 days but this last cycle was 34 days! I hope everything has regulated and can get pregnant soon!
Heya me and oh are ttc number two properly now i'm no longer breastfeeding. We tried for 4 months with no luck but my local nurse told me I might not have been ovulating I'm hoping now I've stopped for a week so far I will catch next month! x
