Quoting Tee:

This is only a superstition but I have read if you have sex in a position such as missionary this will help conceive a girl. This is said because the X chromosome which is for boys travel faster than then the Y chromosome which is for girls. If you are in the missionary position you are laying flat so the sperm will lay closer to the entrance of the vagina which will give you a better chance at conceiving a girl. I believe it is called the shettles method or something like that. If you are doing the doggy style position your at an angled position which will allow the the X chromosome to travel at faster speeds therefore, conceiving a boy. I don't know it is all superstition. I do know we wanted a boy and tried the doggy style position and conceived a boy!!! Sorry if that is too much information but good luck!!!



without going into to much datail i have tried every position under the sun, hubby thought it was great and cant wait to start trying again ha ha.....

Google the Shettles Method. A quick overview should be available on the internet. It is supposed to be slightly more accurate with the boy method, though.
