Is it bad to sway your first?

Hi, I'm new to this board although I lurk/post on some other of the TTC boards.  It's so easy to become obsessed!  My dh and I have been casually TTC our first, and I was interested after hearing talk about it on other boards about swaying.  My dh would love a little boy, and I though it might be fun to try for one.  I don't plan on taking it too seriously, just would like to do a few methods to see how it goes.  Should I even try or just focus on getting pregnant first?  Any suggestions on some things I could try?

I swayed for my first.  I used timing, food and vitamins, etc.  I thought even though I knew that I wanted more than one child it couldn't hurt to try.  The nice thing abut swaying for your first is that there isn't as much pressure!

go for it, trying to sway with your first is probably being smart, but it sounds more like it'll be fun for you either way it turns out...I would just time dtd right on top of ovulation, I think that is what is determining all my boys eventhough I'm not keeping track of o, I just think that's how it has played out.
