Ok, so i have a beautiful little boy who is a year old in 2 weeks time (eeeek) and we've decided to start trying again for another. Now, Thomas wasn't planned so i didn't have to think about 'how' to get pregnant but thought it would be interesting to hear any of your tips and hints and even those funny old wives tales??

My hubby and I had to "work" at getting pregnant with our first. the doc we saw told me it's a 24 hour on 24 hour off type of thing. As she put it, go at it like rabbits for 24 hours and the next 24 hours pretend you've entered a convent. the thought process is that your hubby's "count" will not be too much or too little. If you were wanting a boy, my mother in law said her doctor told her to pack her hubby in ice ( yep. ice. in that region. he was thrilled). Apparently, little girl dna likes to live in warmer weather.

(ahem) have fun ;)

the only tip i know is if you count the 14-15 days after the first day of your last period. That is the time you are fertile...if you want a girl, do it a few days before that time. (female sperm last longer, male sperm are fast, but only last a couple days so they say.
