    We have stopped the swaying and got pregnant within two months with a sticky one.
    Im sorry for your loss congrats on your sticky babe.



    We got our boys by dtd day before, day of and day after 0 so maybe stopping 2-4 days prior to O might do it?

    No it's not as Shettles has since been "debunked"

    I believe diet is most important

    Oh really, fascinating. So i assume the diet is both the man and woman? or it more important for the man (as sperm determines the sex?). Sorry if my questions are silly, i don't know much about how gender swaying works.

    Not silly Q's at all

    It is mostly the female when doing the diet (to make the body more adaptable to X/Y sperm) although it doesn't hurt to have hubby follow

    There are other ways the male can help though such as consuming/not consuming caffeine when you actually DTD, to upping or lowering testosterone/sperm levels etc.

    Oh okay.

    Caffeine is good for a boy right?

    For a boy you want foods that are high in nutrients: lots of wholegrains/nuts, full fat dairy (yep!!) basically good for you = good for blue! Have a big breakfast. And keep your proteins and carbs well balanced.

    For a girl stick with diet/low fat versions. Less protein and if you can, lower your calories and lose weight.


    Feel free to ask away I have been researching this a very long time lol. I have four girls and would love a boy, but we soon got sick of the diet lol so gave up. What will be, will be!!
