DS3 completely disproves this

We DTD 5 days PRE-O (i am positive - i had a 9mo old baby and "adult time" was few and far between.... i was still EBF but was charting my fertility - so is possible i O'd a day earlier, it wouldn't be any earlier than that.....)

OP i hope you get your girl if that's what you want....

The average is 72 hours in the female reproductive tract, but they can and do live up to 5 days under ideal conditions - fertile time per cycle.

I think sperm can live up to 5 days in the ideal conditions. GIRL spermies! Boy sperm swim fast/dye fast. Girl sperm swim slow, but live longer! If you get preggers, you're likely gonna have a girl

My kids should have been switched. I got pregnant with my daughter DTD daily often multiple times a daily. And my son was a once a week thing.
I think timing ups your chances a little but I do think that some men are just girl makers and some are boy makers

FX for a girl for ya!
