opks and trying for a girl...

So I got my first digital opk yesterday at cd8. DH and I bd'ed last night. I took another digital opk today, cd9, and it is still positive. I have and LOVE my twin boys, but would really like to try for a girl. So, should I BD again tonight or hold off? Don't get me wrong, I would be thrilled with a happy healthy baby boy, but if there is any truth to the shettles method I should BD 2 days before ovulation....right? I guess I am really worried that my opk picked up my surge 3 days prior to o rather than 2 and I miss the window altogether!

For a girl, supposedly you should BD during your fertile week and as soon as you get that positive, that should be your last day...no bding after that point. So I'd say last night would be all you need. It's really hard to do the gender control TTC but it can be done. Good luck

I also am doing the same thing! lol we bd'ed all week last week cause I had CM then the 7th I got a +opk and we ended up bding that day cause the hubby was going out of town but Im hoping that it still worked cause I guess u dont O until 12-36 hours after +opk . Did you see my post about the needle thread trick? Try it and see what it says. Mine says I will have a girl next so Im soooo excited. I linked a video on it too. Let me know if you try it!! :smileyhappy:
