i have two amazing and wonderful sons whom i LOVE so very much! but i have this aching desire for a daughter...i want a mother daughter bond. someone to do girl stuff with. dont get me wrong i LOVE having my two boys and i have a BLAST with them. i wouldnt trade them for the world!!! and if i had to pick between my sons and having a daughter i would never trade them for one. how could i? they are my little boys. i was just wondering if anyone has any CERTAIN tips that if we decided to try again would increase our chances of having a little girl? please do not give me guesses or answers if you are not sure they are right. i know there are ways to increase your chances of having either boy or girl. and i know that ultimately its up to God not me.

Ok, so here it is. Google Shettles Method for conceiving a girl. It will tell you positions to use, not to orgasm and why, what time of month you should have sex (depending on your ovulation) and when to avoid sex. I think it might even talk about what type of food to eat. I have a son, and deperately wanted a girl...I am 33 wks prego with a little girl! This is not old wives tales, but won't necessarily work for everyone...nothing is a gaurantee in life! Just look it up and see what you think! Good luck!

I really wanted a girl (my first was a boy) and this is what I did (I got the girl btw): eat acid foods like grapefruits (it will ever so slightly change the lining of your uterus and make it uninhabitable to male sperm), have sex in positions that have shallow penetration, have sex a few days BEFORE you ovulate, and avoid sex right after you ovulate. Good luck!

All oft the tips you can find on the internet are old wives tales.... it's always a 50/50 chance and it depends on your partner since his sperm decides the sex.
They do say that "male" sperms swim faster but "female" sperms last longer. Having sex a couple of days before you ovulate might do the trick since the "female" sperms will last longer than the males. But it's not proven to work. As i said, it's an old wives tale.

Here's the old wives tale I tried successfully for each (but I had a 25% chance of it anyway right?)

During the week of trying to conceive - using the theory of adjusting your internal PH to encourage/discourage the sperm types:

Boy: eat fish & veggies
Girl: eat dairy (no fish!)

Good luck :)

natalie, that is something we were going to try. i would get off birth control and allow my period to regulate so that i can tell when my ovulation cycles will be and have sex a few days BEFORE ovulation to give the girls a fighting chance! haha

Nicky has always wanted a boy, but she's going to wait till the twins are at least going to school before they think about trying for a boy. Don't like her track record!

thanks sandra. and i agree! i have a wonderful bond with my boys and like i said, i wouldnt trade it for the world. i think the bonds between mother and sons and mother and daughters are special in their own ways.

Hi Kristie! I had the identical situation, 2 boys and longing for a girl. After reading and researching i got my husband to the gym (men with higher body temperatures and fitness levels are scientifically more likely to produce girls), got him off the coffee (caffiene is also thought to be an inhibitor to the XX) and enaged in sex without me orgasming.. sorry, but as male sperm are slower/weaker swimmers, you are giving them a head start with an orgasm. Without orgasm, the stronger 'female' sperm don't have the competition and are more likely to win the race to catch that egg!! Anyway, it all worked and I now have my 2 beautiful boys and a gorgeous girl. Good Luck!

you say that you want a mother daughter bond... you are so lucky to have boys! a mother son bond lasts forever (mamas boys...that's why MIL's always get on our nerves, because our husbands are so attached to their mommy's)

good luck i hope you get your daughter

I wish you luck!! I was in the exact same situation you were. I read to take magnesium and calcium supplements along with trying 3-4 days before you ovulate. Low and behold, I had my 3rd little boy in September.
