Hellow ladies - so as soon as AF has gone, I have got the green flag for ttc!! Woot! Thing is hubby is very keen on trying for a girl. He knows there is no guarantee but would like to increase our chances. Has anyone done/doing this? Know much about what I can do to increase my chances?

hi snugglenush i dont know if this works but i have a app on my phone to see when you ovulate and it also said that if you want a girl that when your doing the baby dance sorry but (tmi) is to not have a orgasem for a girl and to have a orgasem for a boy i had a boy last year and i had the big O lol good luck.x

I posted this on baby and preg too and it seems that for a girl we have to dtd before OV and not orgasm and shallow positions like missionary. For a boy dtd on the day of ov, orgasm and deep positions like doggy style lol!! I had a boy in 2010 and he was conceived exactly this way hahaha!!!
Just waiting for AF to bugger off now lol I am CD4. I think this could take a bit longer than last time but I am not in a huge rush! Soooo excited to be ttc again!!!

Hello snugglenush . Iv read that you have to eat things to make your cm more acidic so male sperm dont survive. Magnesium an calcium apparently they favour the female sperm. Your not supposed to orgasm. You have to BD a few days before ovulation so the male sperm die and the female sperm have a better chance to penetrate the egg. Im trying for a boy as i already have 3 little girls plus its a bit of fun while we are ttc. Im so excited. Good luck on ttc a girl . Xx

Well tis going OK so far!! Except I think I have ov'd early (I do that quite often got quie irregular periods). Think I am ov today or tomorrow - last BDd on Sat so hopefully this wasn't too close.
Trying not to orgasm has been very difficult!! I read to have lots of dairy, caffeine and processed food!! SOunds good to me lol!!
I'm not really expecting it to work and expect i'll have a boy again next time, but I am quite happy with that and it focuses me on something else for a while anyway!

Well thats good to know. I will cross my fingers for you that its worked . Are you doin ov tests? I am but im gettin anxious lol. I have irregular periods too its annoying aint it. Lol im lucky im allowed to have 1.
Lol lucky you. I have to eat crappy green food haha its worth a try though. If i dont get a boy i will still be happy. Well even if you do get a boy you could still try for a girl in the future if you do have anymore. Xx

Jackincourtney - can you believe this is the first month that I actually don't know if I have ov'd or not!! Normally it's really obvious I get pains and everything - but this month I got EWCM then nothing. Think we may have dtd too close to OV - but I haven't orgasmed lol and been drinking plenty of dairy and tea!! To be honest - I think I am built for a boy everything we do seems to favour a boy more!!
But I am not too bothered - we want 3 anyway so could always try again after!!

Lol well it sounds like cause you are trying for a girl your body doesnt want you to know when your OVing so that you dont know when you should BD. Its sods law aint it. Only time will tell if you do get a bfp.
Thats like me but its been really hard trying to change things. I would rather not eat all them green things lol.
Anyway hopefully if u are pregnant its a girl and then you wont have to go through all this again lol. Xx

well i think i am getting the signs that i will b ov tomorrow or day after - possibly tonight. last dtd last night so poss a bit late but like you said - time will tell!!
Im not convinced diet makes that much difference jacki - I got a boy by dtd doggy style on da of ov haha. an i enjoyed it alot

Be interested to see if this works as I think we are more likely to have boys (if we do eventually get pg!!!)
Good luck ladies

I have to say - that I think that in general all of us hardcore ttcers must be more likely to get a boy because we are mre inclined to want to dtd as close to ov as poss and in as deep a position as poss.
That reminds me - when I ttc first time round I always put pillow under my bum lol - dya think I should still do that fo a girl??
05/06/2012 at 22:45
Hopefully if you ov tonight or tomorrow an you dtd sat you may have still conceived a girl if you are pg because female sperm can live up to 5 days i think it is and by then the male sperm will have died so fingers crossed .
Well i think it might of made some difference because before i started i tested my CM ph levels and they were very low then a few weeks later after eating the green food i tested again and it had gone up. Iv been doing ov tests but nothings happend yet. Iv been testing since the 1st which was the day after af ended. Im getting impatiant now cause i just want to get things going lol. Xx
