<b><span><span style="font-size:small;">of the same sex............Newbie here so I don't know if this has been asked before. Anyone trying to conceive a certain sex using Shettles or 0+12(I'm not talking about selective insemination)? Any success stories in getting the sex you want following these steps? Or does it not really matter, you will take whatever you get? I'm just curious to know if anyone has tried it. Thanks!<br><br>

It's funny, I met a woman on a total different web site that was wanting to try these types of things to have a specific gender and she already had 2 little boys.<br><br>
I'm sorry, I don't have an answer for you though. We've been trying for so long, we don't care what the next one is *IF* we ever even conceive again. GL mama!!!

Just lurking when I saw this post.<br><br>
My first 2 are boys. First son was concieved after BDing 5 and <span style="text-decoration:underline;">2 days</span> before O. Second son was concieved after BDin 4, 3 and <span style="text-decoration:underline;">1 day</span> before O. My daughter was a complete surprise as we were trying to avoid. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> She is the result of either super swimmers or a condom baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> The day before O we used a condom. (I don't think she's a condom baby, because then she would have been a boy.) And <b>7</b> days before O, we had unprotected sex. (It's not uncommon for me to have a week of Eggwhite quality cervical fluid. But I never dreamed a week before O would lead to conception!) So, I do believe it is possible to time BDing in order to get a boy or girl. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Typically 2, 1 and day of O is the best for a boy. For a girl I would BD 4 days before O. If nothing happened, Maybe bump up the day to day 3. But I think 3 days before O is kinda iffy if you want a girl. Good luck!
