We're trying for our first and only biological child. We only want one, but if we change our minds later, we plan on adopting. Where, I think, mainly, you don't get to choose the gender. So, I feel, like this is our one shot! lol
I, personally, REALLY want a girl. I've been doing everything - guzzling grapefruit juice, eating lots of citrusy/acidic fruits, taking supplements, and I've just recently started tracking.
I'm pretty sure half of the stuff I'm doing is just old wives tales .... but, since it's harmless, I figure, why not?
Obviously, I would love any child - no matter what, no matter the gender. But, if I can tip the scales in my favor - I'm all for it.
In terms of DTD 5 days before ... if you chart for a few months - you can pretty much tell when you will be ovulating the next time. For me, that's not the hard part. It's the self control on not DTD that is.
