Re: Boy vs Girl

It's true... the more sex you have, the lower the sperm count thus leaving the "stronger" female sperm. To conceive a boy, you're supposed to do it only once that cycle... and that means he cannot, um, masturbate either! You gotta save those boy spermies!

Re: Boy vs Girl

I read the book mentioned by Dr.Shettles~

We have a boy

I also used egg white to help the spermies swim better

When it boils down to a baby though I would say that if you are set on having a certain sex it is best to wait until you reach the point when either sex would be just grand~ All the tricks in the world don't mean that you will end up having what you desire

Oh, i'd be so happy to have a healthy baby, no matter what the sex.

We just thought that it might be fun to try.

You could also use fertilityfriend.com, very helpful for charting! When I charted I would set my cell phone alarm for same time every morning and take my temp, chart it on paper and go back to sleep! Then later add it to FF.

We have 3 boys, possibly cooking #4! And we have a very healthy sex life! I personally think the more sex you have the more likely you are to have a boy because you are more likely to have sex closer to ovulation. Sperm can live in a sperm friendly environment for up to 5 days. Having sex at least 2 days before or more is a better chance for a girl because boy sperm is faster and expends its energy to get to the egg first and dies off faster. So if you have sex and all the boys try to get ahead of the line, and the little eggie hasn't even come out yet, they will die off while girlies are waiting patiently to fertilize!

I was wondering if you would read this Ginafer and what your response would be. We have a healthy sex life with 2 of each gender with everyone in the house thinking #5 is a boy. We actually conceived our 2 girls when hubby was working 72 hours shifts, that would make sense, he went to work on Thursday morning and got home Sunday morning, I bet they were from Wed night.

Re: Boy vs Girl

There is a site that is nothing other then choosing your gender In-gender
there is some intersting things on there but also some sort of scary to be honest

Also there is a women named Kimmie on here that does lunar charts & she is really really good & nice search "lunar fertility charts"

I think the best thing to do is to FIGURE out your cycle 1st go get the Free Fertility friend & just start charting. I would chart for a month or two to see where you are at

We are also hoping for some girl dust

Re: Boy vs Girl

I did mine based on the theory "boy sperm swim faster but girls last longer". I was right all 3 times:-)

Baby Dance A LOT 2 to 3 days before you think you will ovulate for a girl. Do NOT baby dance a day close to ovulation.

There is a book about Choosing Your Baby's Sex {I think that is the name of it? } anyway.. it has LOTS of great pointers. No boxers {underwear} just briefs ~ unless you want a boy.
You can look on Amazon or at your local library or bookstore. They should have it there.


Good Luck!

Re: Boy vs Girl

The one time we got a girl was the time we weren't DTD very often. Every other time we were doing it frequently and 3 boys are the result. We are hoping for a girl next time.
