Hi all, I'm new here, just looking for some conception tips, help and support. I am 22, working mom. Im married to a wonderful man! I have a son who is nearly 2 who is not my husbands biological son. He treats him as such, however, and his bio dad is not much of a dad to him. Recently, my husband and I decided to begin trying for our first child together. We are both really hoping for a girl- any tips? I looked it up, and it seems like the best tip is to have sex 3-4 days before ovulation and avoid orgasm . Anything else anyone here would recommend? Additionally, I was seeking peoples experiences regarding conceiving after birth control. I quit my birth control mid-May. Ive kind of had my eye on a February due date (no third trimester in summer- that was miserable- son was born late August). But its only recently my husband decided he wanted to try, and so only recently I quit, but Id love to conceive this month and have that February due date (though I know its not likely). What have been your experiences conceiving after quitting daily hormonal birth control? Thanks everyone!
