Readers Respond: What did you try to get pregnant with a baby boy?

Responses: 110


Updated April 22, 2009

Many couples are taking matters into their own hands when it comes to choosing the sex of their baby. Couples wishing to have a baby boy have lots of things that they can try to help influence the odds of drawing the XY genetics that belong to a boy. So what did you do in trying to get pregnant with a boy? Do you have a special sexual position? Do you time your ovulation? Do you recommend an orgasm? Share Your Experience


Me and my partner we both have daughters from our previous relationships so now that I am pregnant we really really would love to have a boy, I am 21 weeks and everytime we go and check the sex of the baby we can't see it so we just keep wishing.

3 girls

I had 2 daughter close in age and wanted to try for a boy. I followed the shettles method. Charted bbt, test ph for months, used opk, dtd after ovulation ect. I got a positive test and was sure it was a boy. Sadly I miscarried at 10 weeks. It was the hardest thing. I decided then babies gender didn't matter. Now I'm 27 weeks with my third girl and just so grateful for a healthy baby on the way

Dear girls....

Instead of changing yourselves why not changing what your husband does? After all, the gender outcome is his responsibility.
