Just need to have a rant as I can't tell any of my family/friends this and soooo ridiculously frustrated: Have you or your partners had a prefernce for a girl or boy and trying different methods?
My DH is really desperate for a boy (he's the youngest boy in the family so wants that old macho chestnut thing of 'carrying on the family name') I really don't mind as long as we have a healthy baby at the end of it.
He's so set on having a son, we're trying the 'Shettles method' (only BD on the day I ovulate) to try to concieve a boy but I'm worried that a) it's restricting the amount of BD we're doing so could end up not getting pregnant for a long time and b) if we are lucky and get pregnant I don't want him to be disappointed if it's a girl.
Not sure what advice you ladies can give me just feeling so meh about it! xx
no matter what the outcome, I'm sure once you're pregnant/it arrives he will love it regardless fwiw, the Shettles method has since been dis-proven so you could use this as a way to encouraging more BD?
There's quite a lot of threads on the pregnancy boards about gender preference - might be good to read them?
I must say, it's the first time I've heard of a man knowing about and wanting to follow the Shettles method!
I have a 6yo DS that called my DP daddy since he was 4. Just starting to ttc. So though it's DPs first from the start he is happy that 'we' have a boy and is hoping for a girl this time but I want another laid back boy like my DS. But we aren't trying any methods just wait and see. And I want to know at 20w scan so it isn't a shock to either of us what we are expecting!
