Anyone use shettles for a girl and it actually work?

Just curious!

I have two boys and really want a girl so I tried!

I took cranberry and calcium supps (along with a vitamin and folic acid)

DTD 2 or so days before O (dtd Sunday afternoon, O'd late late on Tuesday)

What do ya'll think? Do you think I swayed ok? If you got a girl, tell me how you did it! LOL I'm getting nervous and I'm only gunna be 5 weeks tomorrow! LOL

Re: Any use shettles for a girl and it actually work?

I have a girl.

I used anonymous frozen donor sperm and had an IUI (done by my OB) done 24.5 hours after a +OPK. It was the day that I ovulated.

I took Vitex and Royal Jelly (both recommended herbal/supplements by my acupuncturist and in multiple books that I had read for egg quality). Both said to be "girl" supplements (I did not learn that 'til after my daughter was born).

To give you an indication - the donor that we used has 18 known children born from his donation and the majority of them are boys (12 boys, 6 girls).

I did cranberry and calcium plus Shettles timing. Twice. We're expecting our third little boy.

Re: Anyone use shettles for a girl and it actually work?

Inadvertantly. DD1 and DD2 were more of a timing thing. DD2 had some of a dietary slant as well (we were in the process of going vegetarian and the only foods that made me feel ok were acidic ones). This time around we shall see (won't know til August). Though it all lines up with timing and diet again. Both just happen to be what I naturally am pulled to (my peak libido is actually a couple days before o and I live on acidic stuff). I'll be very surprised if it turns out to be a boy honestly.

Re: Anyone use shettles for a girl and it actually work?

We were going to use Shettles, but my mom was in the hospital and I wasn't with dh. We ended up doing (accidently kind of) the 0 +12 from ingender and we got our girl . I didn't do any supplements or anything though.

Re: Anyone use shettles for a girl and it actually work?

FirSt I want to give the credit to God, Buuut I had 6 boys and was dying for a girl. I did the O+12 method, took sudifed, cranberries and got my girl. My next one did the O+12 and sudifed got another girl. IDK I also BEGGED GOD FOR A GIRL

LOL trust me, I've been BEGGING God too! LOL I tried 0+12 the month before I got pregnant and it didn't work for me for some reason. I dont think I waited to long either, I actually thought I might have done it a little early! FF ended up making that day my O day when it gave me crosshairs!

I didn't try sudafed It was my first day of fertile cm and it was watery, not ew, so hopefully that'll be ok!!

OH PLEASE GOD!!!!!! lol I wont be able to have 8 like you as my dh said this is our last so this is my only chance

Re: Anyone use shettles for a girl and it actually work?

We DTD 2-3 days before O to get a girl three times. We have 3 girls. The boys, we DTD the day of O and they were all boys. I think it works great!!

Re: Anyone use shettles for a girl and it actually work?

I hope it works for you hun!! I know there's lots of people on here that swayed for a girl and still got a boy, and I know begging for one from God doesnt work honestly. He's not a wish fairy unfortunately, if he was my father would still be alive. DH wants a girl but I draw my line at 4. I wouldnt mind one, but i'm sure you feel the same way, I'd take a healthy baby of any gender If you have 3 boys you are very blessed!
We did the deed 3-4 days before O this time and so far the pregnancy feels the same as the boys so I'm not sure, we'll see!
