    Hey Girls,
    I'm really not sure what to do right now - currently cd8 and finished clomid on Saturday. Me and Hubby really really want a baby girl although i'm sure neither of us would mind if our baby was a boy but it leaves me thinking do i ttc normally 5/6 days before O and 5/6 days after or just 5/6 days before and on O to catch a girl?!
    I'm really confused :hissy:

    I would love a baby girl to, but a boy would be wonderful i just want bubs to be healthy. I did wander all that when we first started, but now i'm more desperate and i don't worry anymore, so basically i wouldn't worry to much. Good luck on ur 1st round of clomid. XXX

    Plus i would't worry about BD so many days after O cos the egg only lives for like 12 hours. XXX

    I'm not sure honey! They claim that female sperm swim slower!!! So i'd suggest TTC before ovulation so there are more female sperms @!!
    I conceived on Clomid!! And we are having a Girl!

    The shettles method states that you stop BD'ing 2 days before OV for a girl. And start BD'ing the day before OV and the day of OV for a boy. The boy sperm get there fast, but don't live as long. The girl sperm take their time getting there, but live longer.

    In theory. Good Luck!

    I can't help as #1 I don't buy into believing that bd'ing a certain way will give you X sex. Secondly, i've never cared about the sex, all i've ever wanted was a healthy baby. I've never felt so strong about that as I do now, given our journey so far...

    If I was allowed to choose the sex, I couldn't do it. I would feel so incredibly blessed just to be pregnant.

    I'm starting to feel the same way - i think the reason i really wanted a girl is because the boys in my mums and my nan's life have both screwed them around and walked out of their lives and i was a little scared it run in the family but if it's gonna happen it's gonna happen i guess i just want to be a good mum and be happy.
