Women that predominately have boys under circumstances like you have said usually have high acidic levels in their cm. It kills the sperm to quickly thus the girls never survive. This is something that can be altered with diet changes in some cases.

If You personally wanted to try for a girl, I would suggest as you find out for sure what your O day is then dtd 4 or 3 days before O and no more until a few days after you O. (if you have time to spare 4 days out is a better first start) If you do not get preggo move it up a day to 3days and if not again 2days, etc. If you are not getting preggo on the day 4 and/or 3 dtd then you prolly have high acidic levels in cm. You can still get a girl at day 2 but its more of a toss =)

BTW I did A LOT of research when I kept having girls- 3 in a row. Applying said methods I planned the next 2 boy babies. Then had 2 more boy babies after that both while breastfeeding so I wasn't really paying attention to when I was O'ing lol.

As an aside, does anyone know if you get o pains or confirmed o is it too late to try?

Re: Do you remember..

I'm going to go with Holly and say that as much as someone might or might not try to sway gender - in the end its still 50/50

DS1 and DS2 were right around O..... however with DS3 i am POSITIVE about the date of his conception and when I O'd..... we DTD 5 days prior to O and now we have M Going by what you said, I should have a daughter - and I assure you i don't!

did you dtd after you o'd? 5 days is on the long side for sperm surviving?

it is jus a theory but everyone i know who knows for sure when they o'd that month and tried to gender sway has had sucess

Very true - so imagine my shock when i peed on a stick 2 weeks later! And no - I am super positive there was no other BD'ing that month.... i still had a nursing 9mo old and poor DH was lucky to get it bi-monthly

I think there is a 12-24 hours period after o that the egg is viable. However, I've read that it's best for the swimmers to already be there waiting. But then again, if you search FF charts there are plenty of conceptions at O+1....
