    Hiya ladies!

    If you are pregnant with a baby girl or have had a baby girl, please could you tell me whether you conceived before you ovulated, on ovulation or after ovulation. The more exact you can be he better.

    If interested in researching whether there is any correlation between timing of BD and conceiving a baby girl.

    Let's see what you all think x x

    Hey I'm carrying a girl and I conceived around ovulation. Cant be too exact with dates but it was around the usual time to fall pregnant.
    Isn't it just sort of like a coin toss? I didnt know you could try for a gender. x

    Apparently all sorts of things can affect which gender you conceive including timing of BD, BD positions, whether the lady OG's or not, diet etc etc. Some interesting info can be found at www.ingender.com if you are interested.

    Thanks for your post x

    I find this interesting, my MW told me that new reasearch suggests that some womens bodies are just predisposed to carry boys (I guess giving the little fishies an easy passage) or girls (the reverse) I had a succession of 4 boys, then after my last I was told my uterus had rotated and conception would be more unlikely ( believe me it wasnt!!) BUT my next baby was a girl, which is interesting. She was concieved just before ovulation I think too, by about 3 days.

    Hi Tinkerbell

    try googling the "Shettles Method". From what I understand the closer you BD to the actual date of ovulation the more likely you are to conceive a boy. So the opposite applies to conceive a girl - ie. BD a few days before the actual day of ovulation and avoid BD'ing on the day of ovulation. The theory is that female sperm is tougher and survives longer given the right conditions (esp lots of fertile quality CM) and boy sperm is less hardy but swims faster.

    DH and I BD'ed exactly on the day of ovulation and conceived a boy - so in my case it seemed to have worked (we wanted a boy).

    Posted this on your other gender thread, but here it is again :winkwink::

    My last period started 24/5/09 and I conceived (did the deed) on 7/6/09. I was however taking the pill (not sure whether this altered my ovulation or not as it obviously didnt work). It was the one and only time that I could have possibly have fallen pregnant that month and IM HAVING A GIRL :cloud9:. XX

    After my ds we deliberately tried for a girl. We would have been happy with either but thought it couldnt hurt. I took an extra calcium supplement on top of my prenatal and also went on a bit of a diet as I read that increasing calories = boy so figured opposite for girl! Anyhoo, we bd just like normal around O which was pretty much everyday. We conceived Anja-jo that first month!
    Good luck:flower:

    The day I got ewcm we bd'd twice, which was a Sunday. Then every other day for the rest of the week. So I'm going to have to say before and during ovulation.
