Just wanted to post and say I followed all of the advice I read on here and made an attempt last night for our boy.

Lots of boy vibes coming your way! That's too funny about dairy, I had a difficult time adding extra to my girl diet. Boys, you want lots of potassium, potatoes, tomatoes, red sauce, bananas, and red meat (for testosterone) etc. I'm pretty positive you want to keep dtd until your ovulation has been confirmed. Check on the in-gender.com forums to be sure.With one of my boys I took robitussin cough mucus exporant type stuff, because they said it makes your CM more fertile, and boy friendly. good luck@!

The robitussin is only for before/during ovulation. I'm sure you can find more info about it on the ttc site here or on in-gender. I know, i was so obsessed with the ingender site while/before ttc! I went pretty crazy with all the different things ttc a girl. My dh thought I was pretty crazy too. Looking back it was such a long exhausting journey , but so worth it sitting here feeling baby kicking and rolling around in there. Good luck! (don't worry about the age too much if you've had no issues before)

Oh! Just saw this after posting on your other thread! It sounds like you did all you could. I can't wait to hear what happens. I'm on cycle day 9, so I started my OPK today. We're trying for a girl, so we're dtd up until we get a opk+. I'm also in the March hopefuls board. GL!

Any symptoms yet? My testing date is July 13th. My symptoms last time were just frequent visits to pee even though my water intake wasn't increased.

I definitely have symptoms - it's just they all also match possible PMS symptoms.
