TTC Using the Shuttles Method?

I have three beautiful boys and want to start trying for #4. I have read a few books on the Shuttles, but was wondering if anyone else is trying it out. I have never tracked my cycle so I have been stocking you ladies for advice!

Re: TTC Using the Shuttles Method?

We followed it to try and get our little girl. We had a little boy first and wanted a girl the second time, so I read up on it and we followed it and ended up conceiving a girl. I can't exactly say if it was the method that gave us our daughter or not. Ultimately it was God, but I like to think that the science behind the Shuttles method is believable and could be accurate. We've followed it this time too, to see if we can conceive another boy. We'll see if it worked again if we're pregnant this month!

We used the Shettles method to conceive our boy but ultimately God decided of course

After three boys, we followed Shettles Method loosely. It's wasn't THAT important and we figured if we don't have a girl, we have another boy. Right?

I isn't do diet change to alter ph. We did time intercourse for 3 days before ovulation (which was guessed at because I don't chart), an we used missionary during those times. We also didn't dtd for a week after I suspected ovulation. We were successful the first month. Dd is 18 months now.

I've done it twice to get boys after having 2 girls. It worked both times. I think it's easier to use it making boys, but I've had 2 friends get their girls so its worth a shot.

Diet change is only important if the women has a high ph which only having boys is an indicator if that. The sperm can't live long enough for the girlies. So if u have a history of boy making a diet change is good.
Girl sperm slow and strong
Boy fast and weak

For a girl dtd 3 days before o
Boy abstain until the day of o

U MUST know ur o date!!
