    Default Gender swaying

    Hi guys, just wondering if gender swaying is legit and actually increases your odds of your desired gender? And also, if so I am wanting to sway girl. What are some tips for girl away?

    Well I have two girls and am expecting a third. I *think*, and this is just my opinion, that perhaps diet has an affect on what gender you can expect. I know that my diet, which is heavy meat, wholegrains & green leafy veg, is supposedly associated with having a girl. Whereas a boy diet is heavier on the dairy, which I don't eat at all. It could be total rubbish, who knows?
    As for timing with ovlulation, I have conceived girls from DTD just the day before ov, so not sure if that theory pans out for me.

    I always thought it was the men that swayed the gender based on body temp, boxers/briefs, strength of swimmers, position and so on?

    From the research I have done on the boy side of swaying your diet should include meat (but no fish), salt, tomatoes, bananas, dried apricot, potatoes. Avoid dairy Basically a diet high in sodium and potassium, low in calcium. You should also avoid whole grains and eat white bread over grain bread and eat white rice etc.

    You need to conceive at ovulation, should not do dtd for up to 4-5 days before ovulation. Deep penetration is best.

    I also thought it was up to the men but since researching I was surprised of all the things I found it seems to take 2!! Lol
