    Default Any gender swaying experts?

    We would like to ttc a girl mid next year. I have read that a boy diet is higher in a range of vitamins and minerals while a girl diet is more restricted. does tthis mean I shouldnt take a pregnancy multivitamin?

    Also does anyone know of any sample diet plans?

    I was taking elivit and concieved two DD's. We're hoping for a boy this time so I'm just taking folate by itself..
    So much info out there, not sure who to believe or where to turn either.. and posted a thread in her asking for help and noone has replied
    I think Girls foods are calcium, artifical sweetner, caffiene..
    Boys are salty foods, potasium, and folate.. I hope! haha
    Good luck though!

    The reason for the diet is to impact the ph of your vagina.
    Long story short, female sperm thrive in acidic environments, where make sperm thrive in less acidic environment. Diet can change your bodies ph levels. Google what the levels are. I purchased some ph test strips to test. I swayed for a girl and got one
    I still had alot of fresh foods and my multivitamin. I just also took magnesium, calcium and cranberry supplements.
    Male sperm (ms) apparently also take longer to produce so dtd regularly.
    MS are quicker but are short lived so also stop dtd before ovulation.

    We are TTC and would love a girl but I think some of the techniques I've found in my research are a little extreme. One site suggests skipping breakfast and eating less than 1500cals a day. That's crazy

    We are trying not to b'd too close to O date but that's about it....

    Would love to hear from anyone who has tried gender swaying and how it worked out for you!

    I'd suggest having a look at real, reputable, medical sources.
    From the available evidence, gender swaying doesn't work. There are so many theories but no real evidence to back them. The best evidence I'm aware of is that in lab conditions, in moving fluid, there's a difference in movement between 'male' and 'female' sperm... no evidence whatsoever how that may translate to real conditions. Even if there were, the actual difference in the lab isn't significant enough for any changes you could make to make a particularly large difference to your chances.

    That said... if you want to try it, good luck. Just wanted to point out that there isn't any evidence to suggest it could work.
