I have a dd already, and would like to give my dh a son.  It doesn't really matter to either of us in the end, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to try?  What do you need to do to conceive a boy?  I'm also curious if anyone is able to say that IRL.  I feel that I'll just get lots of nasty comments if I express a desire either way.

For a boy, I believe you want to have sex right at ovulation. You might want to try using an OPK to determine when you ovulate, that seems to be the key which trying for a specific gender. You also want a diet that is high in potassium and sodium, supposedly your ph level can affect gender. Good luck!
