Male Sperm IS Faster!
- Okay, So I looked at all of these comments saying that male sperm is slower,; IT'S NOT! It's faster, but It just dies off quicker. The BEST way to recieve a baby boy(Or so I've heard) is to do it doggie-style. Missionary position just slows down the male sperm, which leads to the female sperm to win the race. I've never had kids, but I'm pretty experienced!

boy or girl
- We have 3 girls & 2 boys. On the last one I knew I was having a girl and looked at the chinese calendar after putting in info. and it predicted the girl we got. Worth looking at and considering with other info. We plan to try for one more hopefully a boy and to all the stuff on here. People keep saying that the boy sperm is slower. Not. It is timing. They are faster, but if you have sex days before then they die off quickly, so it doesn't matter how fast they swim. If you have it at ovulation; they swim faster and get there faster. It is timing. For those who are worried about the woman having to orgasm before hubby, just take care of it that once by hand and then have sex.

It's boy or girl for this time???
- It's quite in pressure for me as my husband is the only child in his family. I hv 3 gals n 1 boy and recently I get pregnant again. For me, whether is baby boy or girl ... It's the gift of God.

- I was on bottom from behind 2 days before I ovulated and then day of ovulation (i knew cus i could feel it) i was on top. I can't tell you for sure which one got me pregnant but that's what i did OH! and that same weekend I had gotten a swedish massage and had her focus on my lower back and I swear til this day the massage got things flowing, hit certain nerves that control the pelvic area, ancient chinese secret! idk lol and I got pregnant, I really believe the massage helped! AND I always ate breakfast! good luck!

Doesn't work, sorry
- I have 2 girls and I tried the Shettles Method to try to conceive a boy. It didn't work. Having a boy or a girl is purely a matter of luck. My mother-in-law, who certainly didn't believe in orgasms (as a staunch Catholic) had 5 boys. I love my 2 girls but really wanted one boy. So i am disappointed but know that I will fall in love with my 3rd girl as well when she arrives. Good thing that my husband is very happy with a 3rd girl. Good luck to all!

We tried ovulation test, changing our diet, vitamin A, K, E, folic acid, (DW), & Zinc and vitamin E for DH doggie style, and a full moon. It's in God's hands now! :)

to influence the xy(boy) chromosomes...
- From all my research, it seems like the most influential method would be the Shettles method. I'm sure that it increases the chances, but what it really comes down to is which sperm wins the race to the egg. But, it seems like most women succeed in having a boy after using an ovulation test and have intercourse after they detect their lH surge. I have the book and things it says to do are 1-have intercourse once you test and see you are ovulating. 2-eat foods high on the alkaline scale 3-use rear entry penitration (doggy style, as its as close to the cervix as you can get). 4-make sure woman has orgasm before sex, as it makes the woman's body for ideal for the boy sperm. This totally makes sense as I've tested both mine and my husband's pH levels. My normal, pre-sex pH was around 6.5-7.0, which is the concerned levels on the acidic range. After orgasm my body was 8.0-8.5 pH. After intercourse, with my husband's bodily fluids, they tested 8.5-9.0 so I'm sure alkaline favors boys!

All my baby were surprises
- My first baby which was a girl was the first time my husband and I made love we didn’t have to try hard at all, my second which is also a girl was born 16 months later she was my contraceptive condom baby so she came at a big surprise. We agreed after she was born that we would wait awhile at least 2 or 3 years so I went to the doctor and got a IUD the Paraguard non hormonal one it didn’t work that great because 2 month later I became pregnant the baby is perfectly healthy and the IUD is out I am blessed everything is ok we are hoping for a boy. Crossing fingers I also have 2 stepdaughters so if this were a boy it would be a miracle.

Rumor Has It...
- We wanted a girl, but didn't try anything special to increase our odds. We ended up with a girl anyway! I read in "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" that X sperm survive stresses like heat better than Y sperm, and X sperm also live longer but travel slower than Y sperm. So if you ovulate like clockwork, try to time your sex for a few days before ovulation to make a girl (then stop), or for just-in-the-nick-of-time to conceive a boy. Don't know if it actually works, but it's the most scientific method I've read about. Certainly beats special sex positions for credibility.

- For the fist time me and my spouse after marriage usually have intercourse three times a night for one month at different positions then we got a handsome baby boy. Try this method.

I tried to have a boy with the diet
- I tried having a boy, using the special diet. I also heard that eating more (especially big breakfasts) gives you more chance to have a boy. I also tried to deal with the timing of the intercourse. But, after not conceiving for a few months, we just had as much sex as possible during ovulation. Although I kept the boy diet- I got a girl. But I was happy anyway for getting pregnant, and now - of course I'm in love with her... After all, remember that you are going to LOVE your baby, no matter if it's a boy or a girl...
