We thought about it and even tried for a couple months since we had a few months there that would have been great to be pregnant but we were also planning around deployment but it didn't seem to work, as we were not getting pregnant period. As the deployment loomed, we threw that out the window and just tried for a baby! :)

There is a gender determination board here. I know there are several ladies on there that have swayed for a specific gender.

My sister and het dh tried for a girl by BD early and other strategies. They were pretty serious about it and were using all of the strategies. After about 6 months they did get pg (she got pg on first try with #1). They ended up having a little boy.

Here are some fun ways to try to sway if anyone is interested: http://www.ivillage.com/how-choose-your-babys-gender/6-b-365838

None are fool proof, but I have seen success with some of the methods on the boards.

I'm pretty sure that it is all up to genetics that decides the gender. Has any body succeeded with trying for a certain gender? Could it have just been luck? What have you all tried? I'd like a girl, we already have a name picked out cuz we can't decide on a boy name just yet lol I figure that if it worked for any of you women it could work for me. Good luck!! (:

You can find some success stories over on the Gender Determination board: http://forums.ivillage.com/ivillage/?category.id=iv-psgender, you'll find them in the TTC & Sway Updates folder.

Well I'm not going to say it is perfect and will works for anyone but I will say I swayed with all three of my children and got what I wanted.....With my girls I took a calcium suppliment and days before O. With my son I took a pottasium supliment and tried to get as close to O as we could. This time around we started trying for a boy as we have two girls and a boy, this will also be our last, but now that we have come upon our 12th month trying I have gotten to the point that I just want a baby........I am giving my body a few months to cool off and relax and not take any supliments or extra vitamins. and if we are still not pregnant by january I may start taking my pottasium again and start over...Good Luck..Do your research and you will find ways to sway your odds in one way or the other.
