    Default FIFO, TTC and gender swaying

    Am I crazy to think about gender swaying since my hubby is FIFO. I know TTC would be that little bit harder / take longer then if he was home ,
    Do you think gender swaying would add more pressure or is doable?
    We have 2 girls and the reason we would be trying again is to try for a boy

    If his swings line up then go for it . It took 12mths to conceive our second bub while dp was fifo, one week on one week off (not due to the shifts we had other issues), he was a boy.

    So when it came time to ttc our third bub I thought it would take a lot longer because we were swaying for a girl, he was fifo and we had trouble conceiving our second bub. I tracked ovulation for a few months before we actually 'tried'. eventually his shift lined up with the perfect timing and we conceived on our fourth month. I'm 25wks pregnant with a girl at the moment

    Eta: I think is a good idea to get prepared. Track ovulation for a while before jumping in. Also set yourself a goal, eg. If you don't fall pregnant within 6mths you will have a break. Or if you don't fall pregnant within 12mths you will reasses the gender swaying ect.

    Good luck might as well give the swaying a try for a while. It can't hurt
