Hello people !

I have heard that there are ways of trying to concieve a girl . dont get me wrong i would love and be happy with either but i really would like a girl as we already have a boy ..

a friend of mine said that her parents wanted a girl and they did certain thing to try and concieve one (neadless to say my friend is a girl )

I believe the standard recipe is as follows:

Sugar
Spice
All things nice.

Well a man and a lady fall in love and do a 'special cuddle'. 9 months later the stork brings them a baby. Sometimes it's a boy baby, sometimes it's a girl baby. I don't think he takes requests.

That's an EZ one.Many years ago,My Grandmother advised us to have only 2
Children. Because,she said-they will be less trouble,and you will have more time
to devote to each one.She suggested having a Boy first, and Then a girl.So,still
In college,I began to Research Methods and the latest discoveries.3 days before
My period was to begin, we tried for a solid week.Bang! A Boy. When ready to
Conceive the girl, we tried ANYTIME BUT before a period, and a few days After
A period.Bang! A Girl. Don't ask me Why,Can't remember All of the Scientific
Reasons; but every time I have told this to someone-Success! Jill.

Um, there are only 2-3 days out of each cycle when a woman is able to conceive and it's generally smack, bang in the middle of the cycle.

For a boy baby you need an X chromosome and a Y chromosome. For a girl you need two X chromosomes.

That's the actual science. There is no way to choose. It's down to luck and genetics. Some men have more X sperm than Y sperm are more likely to father girls. Some have more Y sperm and are more likely to father boys. The woman's egg is always X, so what you need OP is a Y sperm carrying man. Some men have an equal amount of each and father both girls and boys just as easily.

You could always ask one of your neighbours who have lots of sons I guess wink

Apparently boy sperm swim more quickly but have less stamina, girl sperm are slow but can keep swimming for days.

You need to plot your ovulation cycle and have sex a few days before ovulation so that by the time your egg is released any boy sperm have long since given up.

try here for more tips

I had a boy first time, unplanned pregnancy and planned for a girl second time. 100% success rate! I really wasnt bothered either way and am finding it hard to get in to girly things but I get to buy sparkly shoes for someone else now grin
