Anyone want to talk about the gender predictions/old wives tales? I found out last week I was pg. I am 5 weeks and 1 day. I tried to sway the odds in favor of a girl, did anyone else try this? Did it work? What did you try? Also, I read that if your urine is neon yellow, you would have a boy, did anyone have neon yellow urine and still have a girl?

My urine is very yellow, but only after I have taken my prenatal vitamin. I am having a boy.

Thanks Dustie, I am taking a prenatal vitamin too, but I can't remember if my urine was like that before the vitamin now DARN!

My urine is very yellow, but that is because of the vitamins. I had a girl the first time and I am having another girl.

there is no accurate way to tell except by seeing the "turtle" or the "hamburger" by an ultra sound...sorry (that is what they call the testes or the v____a in ultrasound school....isn't that funnY??)

thanks everyone, that is reasurring. I am hoping for a girl. the chinese chart said a boy, but i tested it on my son and it said he was a girl, so i'm not sure how accurate it is. I think i did practically everything to conceive a girl. I did the oh boy or girl planning calendar. I did vinegar/water douche, calcium/mg supplements, and the girl diet. I also tried to combine shettles method and I did bd 3 days b/f ov but then i was afraid i wouldn't get pg, so i bd'd again on the day of ovulation. Has any of you bd on the day of ovulation and still got a girl?

Kerr- my sister-in-law had a girl, but they did it 2 days before and then the day of. From what I have heard (true or not) male sperm swims fast, but dies off fast. So, if you did it 2 days before ov, you will have a girl. If you do it the day of, you will have a boy. 3 days before ov, all girl sperm may have been dead already. I have also heard that all sperm only lasts for 48 hrs. Not sure if any of it is true.


ker - September 13

thanks Angie. I heard something like that too about the sperm. But what I heard is that most of them only live up to 48 hours but that it is possible for them to live up to 5 days. I can't imagine it but that is what i heard. I did the vinegar douche on the day of ov just b/f bd, so i am hoping that killed off the Y sperm. We will see.

Ker, you know what worked for me? I kept hoping for a girl, calling it a she, etc. But from the time I found out I was pg, every dream I had about having my baby, it was a boy. Got an US at 17 weeks, and it's a boy. I had a pregnant friend who asked what I was dreaming about and I said boy and she said "then you're having a boy". Weird, but I think sometimes you *know*. But I don't know if this works for everyone.


ker - September 13

Thanks Beccah, that is funny you say that about your dream, b/c I had a dream that my baby was a boy too. I will love it no matter what, but I just wanted to see if I could get a girl.
