    Hi all,

    I purchased the "Conceive the gender of your choice" online book as we wanted to try for a girl ( my partner already has 2 boys from a previous relationship). I found the "girl baby diet" quite restrictive, so gave that up after one cycle. (The book gives a list of foods and a suggested diet as well I think, if you like the Facebook page you can also get updates)

    We then kept to the stopping 2 days before ovulation method (this is slightly problematic for me as the OPK's dont always show me clearly when I am ovulating and the SFK's dont work for me at all) also book suggests positions with shallow penetration and for the woman not to orgasm (helps the boys along and changes the PH to more alkaline which the boys also like).

    We did this for 2 cycles but it wasn't much fun for either of us and we haven't had a BFP yet, so on the most recent cycle we just decided to go for it as the gender selection stuff was just making it more stressful in general. Decided to try for a baby first time and if we dont get a girl first time, we will try the gender methods again for the 2nd one.

    It is of interest to note that we are more likely to conceive a girl as the girl sperms are stronger than the boy ones. The boy ones are faster though, hence why you would probably conceive a boy right on O.

    Cheers

    Default PH Test Strips?

    Hi Girls
    Am looking to try for a girl in the next month or so. Was just wondering if anyone had been able to purchase PH test strips anywhere to test cm?

    I got some off Ebay but they never worked and I ended up having to get a digital tester.

    Hi there

    I think the speed of sperm theory has been debunked but don't quote me on it lol!!

    Hi everyone,

    We are going for it next month, I think we've done all that we're meant to do to sway for a boy, well I hope so anyway & if not well then what ever gender we end up with I'll feel content knowing I tried my best.

    Prettypetal79, it does get stressful I agree & can make you feel a bit like this

    Hi I'm new here. I've just joined up. DH and I are TTC a DD using the gender swaying techniques of diet, supplements, timing BD to O etc and I have a question about the diets.

    I know to sway pink means low salt/sodium, but is it ok to have one small meal a week that is high in salt, with garlic and olive oil?? You see we go to MILs every weekend for dinner and she cooks mediterranean style with a lot of salt/stock powder, garlic, onion, olive oil, red meat, red wine, bascially everything blue (no wonder she only had boys). I've tried to ask her to change the way she cooks when I was BF (DS would get an upset tum something chronic whenever I ate chilli.) and she didn't ("No there's no chilli in it" she would say, but it would burn your mouth when you ate it) So would it be OK if I abstained from salt all week and had a (small) meal once a week? I'll avoid going there around time of O, but I can't avoid her for 6 weeks/3 months or more. What can I do??

    Default RO Water

    Also, its great to have an Aussie forum. I've been looking at other forums from the US and they talk about brands that are not available here. Like Reverse Osmosis water, does anyone know any brand names of RO water here in Aus, preferable WA? Evian is a good alternative but is very $$$. Thanks.

    That would be fine Does she cook up a variety of foods so you could bulk up more on something else that is better suited for you (like a salad, lol).
