It's a ...... G I R L !!!!!! Our Sway worked!!!!!!! ***IMPORTANT***** If you are reading this journal to learn more information about swaying PLEASE read it the entire way through. I changed some things as far as timing and vitamins and minerals go towards the end. I dont want anyone to get the wrong information, so please read this in its entirety. Also, check out the nuts and bolts of my sway at the Gender Dreaming site found here: http://genderdreaming.com/forum/add-your-girl-sway/27586-falling2grace-ttc-girl-sway-attempt.html ******** UPDATE: I got my at 3+4 (10DPOs) on Dec. 18th, 2012 with FMU. Gender Guesses....early u/s March 16th at noon! Blueberri henrysmumkaz BlueHadeda maybebaby3 motherofboys dollych nearlythere38 So Im swaying (or so long as i get at least one !) Dont know if it will work or not but im going to try whatever i can since this will be my last pregnancy! Background for me is that i have 2 boys. My first baby resulted in an MC. I have two beautiful and healthy boys 17 months apart (DS1 is 25M and DS2 is 8M). I have ALWAYS wanted a girl and with each pregnancy I just got more upset that I didn't have her. I love my boys, dont get me wrong but i just long so badly for a mother-daughter relationship. For me, this goes far beyond the frills of dresses and lots of pink. The most important people in my life are females and i cant imagine life with out that. The GD the first time around was hard, but i knew we would have more children, so i coped just fine and got on well. The second time around, however, was totally different. It took me a long time to become attached. I love my boys so very much, i have to admit the attachment was quite the challenge until a couple of weeks after the birth of my second I am currently 8 months PP but still breastfeeding however due to this i am not having cycles nor ovulating. I suffer from a condition called Insufficient Glandular Tissue (IGT) so i dont even produce half of what my baby needs each day. It's important to me that I BF my son until he is 1 year old. Ideally i would go longer than that, but i have some risks to waiting for TTC#3 that long (i'll get to that in a minute). So anyways, im currently trying to get my cycles going by taking soy. Today is my first dose and im taking 200mg of Soy Isoflavones. Heres to hoping it does the trick! If it doesn't work by Decemeber, then I will start weaning in Jan/February (DS2 turns 1 Feb 12th). The reason why we are TTC our last baby is because I have multiple issues going on that need address but cant be during my child bearing years. (started ttc July 2012) First off I have severe pelvic organ prolapse (POP). I have 3rd degree bladder prolapse, 2nd degree rectal prolapse, and 2nd degree uterine prolapse (3rd degree is the most severe form). Any POP over 1st degree generally will not get better with exercise alone, or time. With the severity and the symptoms and implications on my life it will require surgery to fix. But they wont do surgery until im done having babies (makes sense). Thats one reason why we are TTC with a close age gap. The other reason is because i have rapidly progressing Endometriosis. I am 24 yrs old. Been told that i am lucky to have had my babies so young bc had i waited even a few more yrs, i may not have been blessed with them. So im at increased risk of infertility (which i do have issues with my cycle as it is, when i am having them). I do want to disclose that for whatever reason, many endo moms seem to produce more than They speculate it has something to do with the estrogen dominance. So my sway may not even matter but im going to try anyways. So in light of these learnings, its been advised to have our last baby sooner, rather than later. Quite honestly we would have been done at 2 if DS2 would have been (we love him but just being honest here!). Once we are done having the last, then we can get on with our lives and i can get the treatments i need. With that said, DH and I have decided that having or even would be awesome, especially given that we cant have more kids after this. So we are gender swaying and also doing things to increase our odds of having twins....dont know if any of this will work or not, but we have nothing to lose! Heres to hoping this works! We've got nothing to lose!
