this is going to sound crazy, so forgive me in advance, but i thought i would take a little poll.

if you have used pre-seed for your current or a past pregnancy, did you have a boy or a girl (or twins and their genders)? the reason i ask is that i think pre-seed has a near-water-like pH of 7 and that alkalinity (pH of 7-9) favors Y (or boy) sperm. if the theory is correct, pre-seed could make a killing. i thought i'd do a little semi-scientific poll.

i have one child, a girl. [i also had one miscarriage but didn't use pre-seed for that pregnancy and don't know what i had before i miscarried.]

edited to add: i have another friend with a pre-seed daughter, too, which is why i was curious if it was part of a larger pattern.

Interesting - girl with preseed here!

Keep this going... DH wants a shot at a boy next time (though he'll love baby no matter what), and I was going to use preseed again!

*** DH (wed 5/03), DD (6/07), and DS (8/11)

We used pre-seed when TTC#1 and she is a girl. We didn't use pre-seed this time and it's also a girl (pretty darn sure).

Mama to two wonderful DDs (10/06 and 09/08) and expecting a DS 1/1/11!

I used preseed with both pregnancies. I had a boy the first time and this one is a girl.

On gender determination sites where people are trying to concieve boys, they reccomend you use preseed.
