    Default Conceiving a girl..

    I apologize if this offends anyone..

    We currently have a 1yo little boy, who we adore to pieces! We are about to TTC bubba #2 and obviously would be happy no matter the gender but we would love to have a little girl too..

    Apparently you're supposed to BD 2-3 days before ovulation.....according to my tracker I'm supposed to ovulate on 27th but I think it'll be 26th (because of last 2 cycle lengths, the app uses an average).. Does BD on 24th sound about right?
    I just don't want to go too early and not get pregnant at all..

    Any suggestions? X

    I have a girl and I know for a fact that I DTD right on ovulation. I think those gender swaying things are rubbish. You've got a 50/50 chance either way and I don't believe in all those BS techniques.

    Well as the male (supposedly) decides the sex of the baby... I doubt ovulation has anything to do with it.

    The theory is that male sperm is faster but dies quicker, while female sperm is slower but more resilient so doing it a few days before O means there's more likely to be more X sperm waiting for the egg.

    Lol we've been talking about this is another thread. No such thing as slow or fast swimming sperm or timing for gender swaying. What sways is diet, maternal condition, frequency of DTD and a few other things. I highly recommend spending some time reading through the free forums on this website: www.genderdreaming.com
    The woman who created this website did so much research into gender swaying to get her girl (after 4 boys) and is an amazing wealth of knowledge. There is a lot of information and it can be very overwhelming at first, take your time to wade through it all.

    This has been disproved.
