While the woman’s diet is a large component of it, it’s also interesting to see exactly what she was eating at the time close to conception. Many vegetables we eat are alkalizing veggies, i.e. broccoli, cabbage, eggplant, cauliflower, green beans. So if you consume dairy but are vegetarian, your body is prone to still be more alkaline depending on exactly the foods you are eating. If like the woman who has 6 boys and 5 girls, it would be great to know what were the factors present before those conceptions. Before having boys, did she eat fish, or consume more salty foods, did she eat a lot of bananas? Coffee, tea and soda drinks are major alkalizers, maybe she drank coffee during a boy and not so much during a girl? (I’m totally hypothesizing here.. just find it fascinating.)
Also, there are other factors too, the man’s diet is as important, what kind of environment is his sperm in? Also, what position did they have intercourse? Was it shallow, deep from behind? TMI: We conceived rear entry and had a boy. Rear entry is closer to the cervix and the boy sperms have a much shorter distance to go then if it was missionary and shallow penetration.
Do the women who had girls douche? Douching makes for a more acidic environment. Also, lower sperm count in males has been shown to produce girls. So, if they had sex several times before ovulation, the girl spermies have a better chance.
Obviously they are all theories, but when you put several different factors together, it sure makes for some interesting hypothesizing!
