I think that I'm 1DPO today. This is my 3rd cycle off birth control. I have had long cycles though...41days, 43days, and this last cycle I o'd on day 25. This will be my second child...first is a son so I'm hoping for a girl this time. Has anyone had success with the "Shettles Method" in conceiving the gender of choice? I've been using a vinegar douche to decrease acidity, increased consumption of magnesium, and bd 2 days before ovulation. Did these steps work for anyone else?

I've never heard of the Shettles Method, but Ihave heard that douching is very much discouraged in pregancy and while ttc. I think the acidity is more likely to cause harm. Have you looked at your Chinese Gender predictor chart? If you don't mind my asking, how old are you and what month are you trying to conceive? The Chinese chart is actually pretty accurate. Good luck on trying for a girl!

vinegar is highly acidic and harmful to the v____al area. Its never really been encouraged as far as I know.

Hey Newlywed, I'm 33 and only 1dpo so the conception month would be November which has me conceiving a girl...yeepee! The shettles method basically states that male sperm swim fast but die first...female sperm on the other hand are slow swimmers and live longer. So if you're trying to have a girl then you should bd a few days before ovulation so that the majority of the remaining sperm are female. Also, female sperm are supposed to do better in acidic environments whereas male sperm seem to thrive in alkaline environments. So the vinegar douch is supposed to be more female friendly. I'm not sure if this is all just nonsense or if it really works, but I thought that trying couldn't hurt. :o)

Lol! Wow! Well, whatever works, right? haha, well besure to do lots of baby dancing and such. You JUST may conceive that girl!!! :-) I checked out you info and if you don't conceive this month, your chances for a girl again are in January. Did you know theres home tests you can take that say if its a boy or girl? The tests are like, $215!

Yeah, I've seen the boy/girl tests advertised on the internet but after conception it doesn't really matter what the s_x is. Also, I think that you still have to wait until you are like 8 weeks before you can take the test. Anyway, I really just want a happy, healthy baby regardless of gender. But trying to increase my odds for a girl are fun nonetheless!

Well Good luck I have three boys and no luck for the girl but I really want a girl and I am going to try by next year My boys are under the age of 5 and I just turn 28.

Wow! Three boys under 5! I'm 33 and I gave birth to a son who is 9 and also have a stepson who is 10. So being the only girl in a house with 3 guys can be tough...I need an ally!

MAC_33: I know what you mean about conceiving a girl. I have been trying for over a year now with not much luck. I have always wanted a girl too. I am 33 too with a 9 yr old son. We have a lot in common. :) I am waiting to test till this Sat. I think I maybe. I have lots of symptoms and have been cramping since the weekend. If so according to the chart I will be having a boy. At this point I just want a healthy baby. After experiencing 2 m/c this year I just want this next one to stick. Good luck to you.

Foerever, sorry to hear about the m/c! Did you have any trouble getting pregnant with your son or any previous m/c? Have you been doing anything specific to try to get a girl this time or just hoping and wishing?

I did not have any trouble at all with my son. I have always gotten pg within a month of trying. I carried my last two pg up until 10 weeks. They now have me on baby asprin, extra folic acid, prenatals and progesterone. So, hopefully it does the trick. I always just looked at the chinese birth chart and it is really accurate. The last time I was pg I conceived in March and I was convinced I was having a girl. The chinese chart said it was a girl and after they tested the fetus the dr told me I was carrying a girl.
