Here goes. I have 3 amazing boys! My husband and I are planning another baby and we would like to have a girl. We do NFP but have not been practicing for years because my lactation amenorrhea is sufficient. I have been watching for the return of my fertility. Just checking mucus and the cervix.... we do EC and I am up 2,3 or 4 times a night so I am thinking my temps might be more confusing than helpful. So.... I have heard theories about choosing genders... is this complete nonsense? I was thinking I might as well try.... can't hurt anything. Any opinions on what "works."

I've heard good things about the Shettles method. I read the book and we plan to use it for #2. It would probably be pretty easy for you, since a lot of it is about timing intercourse.

I have heard there is a diet and a douch that can help. Good luck!<br><br>
P.S. I have three boys and I am pregnant with a girl. My mom had me and then three boys. Go figure.

<b>Cambpells Soup:</b> Supposidly:<br>
X sperm can survive longer. Y sperm can swim faster.<br>
If you want a boy, DTD at the peak of O'. If you want a girl, DTD before O'.<br><br><i>X and Y sperm can survive in different climates better one better in acid, the other in non-acidic, so the douching thing is about using vinegar and something else - I looked but couldn't find it in my book, sorry. I personally do not douche - my flora IMO is just fine as it is, and I would be chronically panic'd about an ectopic preggy. I worry about just one or two things consistantly = focused paranoia.</i><br><br>
I'm not too hip on abstinence and 'do it now!' doesn't turn either of us on.<br>
Also I just came off depo, so I'm having a heck of a time, CM & Temps are all over the board, no AF for 5 weeks, neg test last week, whatever!.<br>
My plan: it's up to GOD, UNIVERSE, AND ALL THINGS PINK.<br><br>
Best of Luck!
