    I'm interested too!! My OH told me if I orgasm during sex then it will be a girl I don't know if that is true or not. I also heard that girl sperm is slower and that if you do it two days before ovulation than you have a better chance of having a girl and if you do it on the day of ovulation you get a boy. Its all just theory i read online not really sure!

    I believe it is called the Shettles method. Since boy sperm are quicker but die sooner, and girl sperm are slower and live longer, the Shettles method says to babydance a few days before ovulation to have a girl...and to babydance the night before/day of ovulation to have a boy. Its something like that...i havent read up on it, I just have friends that have tried it.

    Im reading that book at the moment, its quite an intense read but really interesting. its all to do with the cm and the acidity, girl sperm last longer and are bigger but slower than that of the male sperm. but ye supposedly they say if u want a girl u need to know exactly when ur due to ovulate, and stop having :sex: 3 days before, they say to do it from the time u finish AF all the way up to 3 days before. over 3 days u stand a chance of conceiving a boy. boys r usually conceived on day of ovulation.

    there is way to much info to put on here so I advise if u are really serious about it then buy the book.
    Of course there is no 100% guarantee it will work but supposedly it increases ur chance by 75%?

    Good luck either way! as long as the baby is healthy then thats the main thing :)
