I was a veggie who did a lot of dairy for ten years before having my son. Then when he was 6 months, I cut out the dairy b/c he was allergic.

With my second son, I was a meat-eating dairy consumer.

I am a lacto-veggie, and have a dd. I don't know what I am carrying now. I did eat a lot of dairy with dd.

I've also read that a female orgasm can affect the acidity of the vaginal environment and make it more alkaline (and thus more hospitable to xy sperm). And that the orgasm should ideally happen right before or right as the sperm enter the vagina/cervix.

So now when ever I see a couple with many boys I think hmmmm . . . they must have great sex!

That's what I've heard and seems like it would be the most likely link.

I'm a vegetarian who doesn't eat much dairy (but I do eat it) and I have a girl and am about to have a boy so that theory doesn't hold true for me!

Haha, I was vegan when I concieved dd1, all through her pregnancy as well. I was vegetarian (including dairy and eggs) when I concieved and carried dd2. Interesting theory, I wonder what the thinking is behind it?

Peaceful mama to three blissfully-birthed and incredible small people: dd10, dd7 and ds5. Always awed and so thankful to be a midwife.

Vegetarian, with a boy
