New here and hoping for a girl
14
Wed, 11-18-2009 - 2:21pm

Hello! My name is Lisa and I am the mother of 2 wonderful boys. David just turned 2 in September & Joshua will be 1 just before the New Year. DH & I are TTC#3 and hoping for a bit of pink this time.


When we started TTC#2 I had just started learning about methods and how to chart. We were using Shettles for a girl and........ well....... obviously it didn't work for us. I think now (looking back) that our timing was off. I am being more aware of my body signals this time & trying to learn other things we can do to "help" a bit of that pink dust find our house.


Would love any input. I am checking out more details on Shettles & have seen some of the info on In-Gender regarding diet to help conceive a girl. I just don't want to leave any stone unturned, as it were. TIA!!!!

So a lot of the women here can also share their sways but most of them somewhat resemble my sway.


Here's what I'm doing:


Supplments: calcium, acidopholus, cranberry, folic acid, and magnesium. You take these starting 6 weeks before your sway but don't take them from AF to O (I think).


Vinegar/lime douche/tampon: Shortly before you BD (baby dance - sex) You can use a vinegar and/lime douche. This makes your vaginal environment more acidic which is condusive for a girl. Then after BD, you can put in a lime tampon for a few hours to make sure your vaginal environment will stay that way for awhile.


Cut off: I'm starting with a 5 day cut off, just because I get pregnant so easily. But most try a 3 day cut off. This is where you BD everyday until 3 days before you ovulate.


For DH(Darling Husband): I'll be having him take a hot shower (concentrating the hot water on his "boys") then blow dry his "boys" - which is supposed to help reduce the amount of boy sperm hanging around in there.


Crystal Light: This lowers your pH to make it more acidic which is more condusive for a girl. I drink a ton of this!


Some of the other women do different sways but this is the more common one. If you have any other questions let me know!!

Just to clarify, don't take the cranberry pills from O to AF (so during the 2ww).
