Have you tried the Chinese calendar method, my best friend told me she used it on all three of her kids and it worked, I didn't believe her, so she showed me the month I conceived and as she said that month was for boy, try it, I'm doing it for my next one I want a baby girl too. Read about it on line, won't hurt to read and learn about it. ;0)

I too have 2 boys and like every womans dream would love to have a daughter and vice versa with a man they would secretly love to have a son if they had daughters. But at the end of the day no matter what the sex of child is u are truly blessed with being able to have a child xxx

Wow Some people are so negative.. Im sure you will be absolutely happy with whatever gender you get, doesnt mean yu cant try everyway possibe to try and get a girl. I dont blame you! we have 3 boys and i will be trying to have a girl. Its funny how you ask a question on how to do something and you get peoples negative comments. Do what you think is best. I know you will be happy however the outcome.

Have you ever considered adoption? My husband and I have been married for 19 years and could never concieve. We had 3 surgeries, 5 artifical inseminations, and 1 invitro treatment in 2006. Nothing worked, until january 16th, 2007. We brought home a beautiful, precious 2 month old baby girl!!!!

In the long run it will save you money if you have hubbys sperm sorted. Its cheaper than a couple more college funds, lol

Apparently you ovulate on about day 14 of your cycle. Day One of your cycle is the first day of your period. So, if you want to give the longer-living 'female' sperm more chance than the 'male' sperm, you should (technically) only have sex on days 10 and 12 to give your body the chance to get a good stock of female sperm, and let the male sperm die off, before you ovulate. You need to leave a day in-between 'tries' to give your partner's body time to build up his sperm count again, hence days 10 and 12 and not day 11. Good luck!

Quoting Michele:

check out the chinese pregnancy calendar. I would love to have a little girl too someday and we are going to bank on that next time especially because it says girl for about a whole year with my age. It says it is about 94% correct!



I must be part of the 6% that dont work coz i had a boy and it said i was having a girl lol.



Also did the "ring" trick over my belly and palm and it said girl! Weird :O)

Obviously there is no guarantee...but I heard on tv once that female sperm last longer but are slower and male sperm are faster but don't last as long. So to get a girl you would need to try early in your ovulation so the male sperm die before they reach the egg and the females last long enough to get there. I'm sure there are other heplpful hints if you search the web....Good Luck!



Exactly what i was going to suggest!! Have fun trying lol

Obviously, if God is willing and has a plan for you to have a baby girl, then it shall happen regardless of what you plan or do. However, praying that whatever the gender is, the baby is healthy, you are healthy, and everyone is happy. If that does not suffice, then my next suggestion is.....ADOPT! More of a blessing that you will ever know.

Hi Saarah, I know how you feel as I had 2 boys and also wanted a daughter.

I took my temperture for a couple of months early morning and put in on graft to see when I ovalated. The answers to your questions below are right about the female sperm being slower so you need to try 3 to 4 days before. My brother had 4 boys and now has 2 girls using this method and I had my daughter. God bless you and family

While everyone gave a lot of tips and ideas, nothing is 100% guaranteed proof that you will conceive a female. Now I don't mean to disregard your yearning to have a girl, but I would also consider the facts that a healthy baby should be your first and foremost concern. I have heard of way too many selfish stories that a mother was hoping for one gender, and turned out she was carrying the opposite. Sadness, depression, and resentment towards the baby overtook the pregnancy. If you are strongly desiring a girl, then consider adoption. If you are chancing another pregnancy, then you need to accept that it may just be another boy. Be happy with the children you do have, as I know so many women who still are childless.

I have three boys and my husband and I have been researching for a while on how to have a baby girl..there ares TONS of ideas, from acidity to alkaline, from timing to position. There is the book How to choose the sex of you Baby by Dr. Shettles ( I can't find the book right now and I don't think that is how to spell his name, but it's something along those lines ) and it is really interesting and makes sense..I'm a firm believer that it is 50/50 anyway you do it, but you never know. I think it might have alot to do with PH levels as well..it takes a while with the timing to conceive a girl because you are told to stop having sex a couple of days before you ovulate...Good luck to you...I suggest you get the book and go from there..it would be pretty cool to have a little girl but I always say, "if I'm going to have all of one, I'm glad they're all boys!" LOL

There are a lot of wives tales about how to conceive a child of a certain sex but the truth of the matter is, you will have a girl when and if God's wants to give you a daughter.

I had a book about concieving and I read it from front to back. I really wanted a boy so I read everything I could find and one thing that stuck in my mind was the diet of the male. It said that if you wanted to concieve a GIRL have the male eat lots of fish and stay away from red meat. If you want a boy eat lots of red meat and stay away from fish. But guess what, I had a boy!! So maybe it was the red meat and maybe not but feed yout hubby lots of fish it may help. HOPE YOU GET YOUR BABY GIRL!!!!

I've heard that if you conceive closer to ovulation that you are more likely to have a girl. Good luck :) I hope that God blessed me with a girl one day too!

The Sperm that carry the male gene are fast swimmers but they die out faster than the sperm that carry the female gene which are slow. Do a fertility calculator to see when your top fertility days are then have sex about 3-4 days before.Buy the time your at your peak fertility all the sperm with the male gene will have died. Since the boy sperm are so weak and vulnerable, it makes sense to have sex in such a way that makes their journey to the egg as long and hostile as possible. (no doggie style) Also since the male sperm are weak you could have your partner take a hot shower before sex which will weaken the already weak male sperm. Hope this works Good Luck!



P.S. I have a girl and want another one

apparently if you have sex 4-3 days before you ovulate your more likely to have a girl.

the sperm that carries the boy gene swin faster but die quicker and the sperm that carry the girl gene swin slower and live longer.. so if you want to have a girl have sex a few days before you ovulate that way the boy sperm will have died by the time you ovulate leaving the girl ones left.



i have 3 month old baby girl and top contributer in the Pregnancy and Parenting section on Y!A :) X
