My theory is have bd on the day of ovulation that is how I got my two boys.

Actually I learned in biology that athletic males have a higher chance to have girls because they always wear that tight stuff that squishes there testis...(I don't member why but that makes them have a higher chance to have girls) So I guess make him wear loose things for a bit?? lol There is no actual way to make yourself have a girl or boy though..what you get is what you get. =P

Hi, I'll try to keep this in laymans. What s_x we are is determined by our s_x chromosomes; girls have two X chromosomes boys have one x and one y chromosome. When your dh is making his sperm he puts his x chromosome into half and his y chromosome into the other half. What you give birth to is entirely dependent on which of the two types fertilizes your egg (you can only provide an x to your offspring). Unfortunately nothing you can do (or eat) can change this.

There is a theory that sperm with x chromosones (his girl chromosone) lasts longer (is stronger). Some people (doctors included) swear by Lisa's theory that if you have s_x a few days before ovulation it is most likely a girl and that if you have s_x the day of ovulation it is most likely a boy. I don't know how much truth there is to that, but since s_x determination is pretty much out of our control it is the only chance you've got to try.

Gee Vicki you would think we are all elementary students who have never had s_x education or ever heard of chromosomes before. You are so smart.....thanks for explaining in "layman terms", or I would say, retarded terms the way you wrote it. Wish we could all be as smart as you.

We have one boy and another on the way. I think that you need to have s_x the day of ovulation because the male producing sperm are the faster swimmers and they die off the quickest.

Well, i've found that if you really want a boy, hope for a girl. It worked for me! Seriously though, there is the "Shettles Method" that you can look into, but i'm not sure how reliable it is. Seems to me like you just can't fight fate. I thought I really wanted my 3rd child to be another girl, but after finding out we're having another boy, I can't imagine life any other way. I'm actually glad now that it's a boy and not a girl. I think there are higher powers that know what's right for you. :o)

I ALSO HEARD THAT SPERM TO MAKE A SPERM LAST LONGER BUT SPERM TO MAKE A BOY IS QUICKER. IF YOU HAVE s_x DAYS BEFORE OVULATION THEN MOST LIKELY YOU WILL HAVE A GIRL, BUT IF YOU HAVE s_x LIKE RIGHT WHEN YOU OVULATE CHANCES R U WILL HAVE A BOY.......I DONT KNOW,,,,,ITS WHAT I HEARD. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO HAVE A BOY WHEN I DECIDE TO HAVE ANOTHER BABY.

I read that the male sperm are smaller but faster swimmers and the female sperm are larger but slower swimmers so to give the male sperm a head start then he should c_m deep inside so maybe him on top or from the back but don't do it with you on top because of the gravity issue. This may help your chances.

One more thing, Toni Weschler talks about this in her book "Taking Charge of your Fertility." It might be worth checking out...

Vicki, thank you for sharing in layman's terms. There is so much misinformation, myth, and hearsay shared by people on this site that I truly enjoy the accurate posts. It's obvious that "A" hasn't learned about meiosis, mitosis, telemeres, and alleles, etc to appreciate your thoughtfulness. I have a master's in Repro Physiology and appreciate the time you took to explain the truth. Too bad no one else did.

I also learned that when you are trying to get pregnant you'll try anything just to get pregnant and your not too worried about boy/girl. I have a son and suffered a miscarriage in Nov. and am expecting another boy in Oct. so I didn't really care I just wanted a healthy baby even though one of each is ideal.

 

MJM - August 19

Okay from what I have read and it worked for us because we are having a boy is..... Have s_x on the day you start ovulating. Or on the second day of ovulation. Have your man drink some caffine before you have s_x also. Make sure that when he orgasm's he goes as deep as possible. The boy sperm swims faster and stronger but they peter out somewhat quickly. So the deeper he is the better the odds. That way they get a head start.Girls swim slower but longer. Anyway this is what we did and tada we have a boy on the way.

Lena, believe it or not I know what those terms mean, as in cell division with reproduction and all that mess. You don't have to be insulting because I say someone else uses elementary terms most of us have heard of before as if they were Layman terms instead. I am not a stupind person and was just pointing that out, sorry you think I was too brash, did not mean to get an argument started, just having a bad day and I realized it does sound worse than what I thought I was writing, so my apologies, I am also a degreed person who has had plenty of Anatomy and Biology courses in the past so do not go a__suming something you know nothing about.

 

A - August 19

Oh, I forgot to say that MJM is totally right about when to copulate. Also to increase the odds of the sperm reaching the egg the fastest so the male sperm get a chance first and the fastest, the woman needs to orgasm after the sperm is deposited deep inside, it helps to open up the cervix and it kind of "sucks" the sperm inside. Good luck with your endeavors.

i really do not think this can be manipulated by timing intercourse alone. some sperm create male offspring, and some female. i think the only way you can be a__sured of this outcome is to spend a lot of money on a genetics specalist who can impregnate you with your husbands male sperm only. good luck with that. a healthy baby boy or girl is a miracle in itself.
