    can you just buy a water filter, would that do the same thing?

    Thanks. That's great news. I'm so relieved.
    She does make salad, but drenches it in vinegar and olive oil. Aaarrgh.

    Hokey - crossing my fingers that it's just too early to test yet! I remember with DS#1 I didn't get a BFP until well after AF was due.

    Happy Jan - welcome to the thread, I too am swaying for a girl

    Scorpio - how are you going?

    I can't read any further down the thread so sorry if i've missed anyone. AF arrived today (3 days early!), I was fully expecting her to arrive as I got my O dates mixed up so O'd 2 days later than I thought i would so i'm not too upset about it - just going to try harder this month - just wish i didn't have such long cycles it's another 3 week wait for O time again, DH & I went a little crazy on the diet this weekend and ate all the things we haven't been able to so i guess it'll give us a couple of weeks to get back on track

    Hi Newbies

    Hey Me33, sorry you missed your O, Im going good thanks, we are going to start trying next month, we've 'fallen off the wagon' a few times with the diet, but its now or never!

    Fingers still crossed for a bfp HPokey, maybe Me33 is right, maybe a bit early to test.

    Sometimes I think maybe I shouldnt have another, so comfy with my girls being 8yrs & 6yrs, but Ive always wanted 3 kids & I think I'll regret later on if I dont, has anyone else had this feeling?
    Or is it because Im so scared to get another girl? I know that sounds bad, cause honestly I would be happy but I really want a boy.

    Hi Talez,

    I tried the baby girl diet for about a month and found it quite restrictive, have added foods from the E book I purchased, tricky to find foods high in calcium and magnesium that arent also high in potassium or sodium. Hope this helps

    'In order to greatly increase your chances of conceiving a girl, you (the
    woman) should eat plenty of foods that contain calcium and/or
    magnesium. You should begin this diet at least six weeks
    before you plan to conceive your baby girl.
    Here are some foods high in calcium:
    ● Vegetables – bok choy, broccoli, Chinese cabbage,
    collard greens, kale, mustard greens, turnip greens,
    and white beans.
    ● Diary products – American cheese, cottage cheese,
    cheddar cheese, ice cream, pudding, and yogurt.
    ● Orange juice (especially fortified orange juice)
    ● Tofu (if processed with calcium sulfate)
    Here are some foods rich in magnesium:
    ● Buckwheat flour
    ● Raw oat bran
    ● Wheat Flour
    ● Dairy – canned condensed milk, low fat yogurt
    ● Unsalted nuts – almonds, brazil nuts, cashews, pine
    nuts
    ● Beans – black, navy, white
    ● Artichokes

    Boy foods
    Foods that are very high in potassium include:
    ● Meat and fish
    ● Fruits – apricots, avocados, bananas, cantaloupes,
    honeydews, kiwis, oranges (including orange juice),
    and prunes
    ● Vegetables – lima beans, potatoes, spinach, and
    tomatoes, and winter squash.
    ● Vegetable juice
    ● Milk
    Foods that are high in sodium include:
    ● Meat (including some fish) – anchovies, bacon,
    caviar, dried beef, chipped beef, corned beef, ham,
    bacon, Canadian bacon, canned meats, lunch meats,
    pepperoni, sardines, and smoked salmon.
    ● Cheese
    ● Canned and dried soups (including broth)
    ● Tomato products – tomato sauce, tomato paste,
    tomato juice
    ● Snacks and party foods – chips, dips, salted nuts,
    salted popcorn, and salted pretzels.
    ● Vegetables – lima beans, frozen peas, pickles, olives,
    sauerkraut, and any other vegetable prepared in
    brine.
    ● Chinese food prepared with MSG
    As you can see, some of the foods from each category are very
    similar. Sometimes the similar foods work toward the same goal and
    sometimes they work toward different goals.
    For example, orange juice is both high in potassium and calcium.
    Therefore, it would theoretically work toward helping your egg attract
    both male and female sperm.
    The key is for you to find a majority of foods that only help you toward
    one goal – with attracting male sperm or female sperm, but not both.
    Otherwise, what you eat may not have any effect or it may actually
    have the opposite effect from what you’re looking for.' (How to Conceive the Gender of your choice Ashley Spencer)
