It worked for me!  I tried it the other day and there was no fizz.  I just got my maternit21 results back and they said girl!

Hmmm, I might have to try this too:) Coffeebean-- did you find out what you are having?

post #25 of 49
No!! Not yet. I had to have my blood re-drawn because of a lab error. :-( So I've been waiting 9 days now for results. My doctor even checked with the lab today and the results aren't ready yet. It's driving me nuts.

Oh man.  It is so hard to wait for results! How long does it usually take?  Do you have a feeling this time?  We told our daughter about the baby on Monday and she keeps saying "well, what is her name? Can we name her Sister?" I keep telling her it will either be a girl or a boy. Keep us posted!

Oregon- I feel like it's a boy, but I felt like that last time with DD. :-) I heard it would take about 10 days to get results, so I sort of counted on tomorrow. Hopefully I get results before the weekend!

I was 100% sure DD was a boy too and we didn't find out til birth.  My symptoms have been different this time and I just have gut feeling this is a boy! I had a dream I was having a boy too. And with DD, although I was sure she was a boy, I had a dream of having a girl. This is our last babe and I see pros of both.  We have girl names and zero boy names though. Think we are going to find out this time....love hearing what other people are having! Hope you get your results back tomorrow.

Way before I ever had DD, I dreamed that I was breastfeeding a baby boy. It was so incredibly powerful and tranquil, I was sure we would have a boy when I got pregnant. So secretly, I hope I have a boy still. Eh, but I'd also really love a sister for DD.

Oregon2010, it is fun hearing about what others are having. :-) Thanks for checking up on me- hopefully it's not much longer!

Okay, we have fizz.  joy.gif  Since we've already decided that the science isn't great, here's to hoping it's a happy happy coincidence!!  We could use another boy around here.  lol

Banana, according to the baking soda test, an awful lot of us are having girls! Maybe I should try again just to make sure...

So getting two different results would definitely put the brakes on this old wives tale. If you do it again, drink lots of OJ or Lemonade, or eat a bunch of citrus a couple of hours before and see if it affects it, LOL!

I'm 3 for 3 on the ladies, thus far. I know each chance is 50/50, BUT I feel like maybe we just make girls at this point. Plus, my O signs were all over the place and we ended up BDing, like 3-4 days before I actually O'ed. I feel like my girl chances are significantly higher than your average bear...

Yeah, we seem to be girl machines, too.  Hubster comforts himself with an old science journal article that says men with high testosterone are more likely to make girls.  MWAHHAHHAA

I tried again and still no fizz for me. I'm going to do it again after eating some oranges. :-) Lazy Saturday with not a lot to do, I confess!

We conceived DD on the day of O.  I know we conceived the day of O this time too (charting).  I have read the what you eat as a woman affects the sex of baby more than timing. I wonder what is actually true.  Its fun to wonder while we wait to find out.  We found out at birth last time and while I loved the surprise (esp bc I was so wrong), I think we are finding out this time!

post #39 of 49

DS was conceived either the day of or day before O, DD was conceived about 4-5 days before O.  So the timing thing seems true for us (n=2).

I read up a lot on the "girl" diet and tried for a girl, then miscarried, and now have no idea what we will be getting (no longer trying for a girl when conceived). But, you are right, diet does totally matter, and timing seems to matter too. Either way, neither is fool-proof, and all they can do is sway the odds a bit (from say, 52 percent, to say, 65 percent).

 

I calculated the statistics for the likelihood of each sex, given what you have, based on some national statistics data (Holland). I also read a really interesting article about dietary supplements combined with timing and much higher rates of selected gender than what would be expected based on statistics. I summed it in another post:
