well we started trying when our daughter was 5 months old just because we know i have medical problems with conceiving she is 14 months now so if it doesnt happen within the next 6 months or so im going to look into a family planning clinic for us. I would say start trying when your son is about 1, that is what most of my friends have said when their baby turns 1 they will start trying for number 2. 2 years is a really good age gap but its personal preference as well.

To have a girl you need to check when you ovulate, from the first day of your period make sure you have sex btween day 11-13 for a girl. day 14 is ovulation so on this day you are more likely to conceive a boy because the sperm for a boy travels quicker but dies sooner. for a girl try abstaining afterwards so dont go to the bathroom for at least 20 minutes or so after sex. female sperm swims slower and lives longer. good luck

Male sperm swim faster then female sperm, but die faster. Females swim slower and live longer. Therefore if you want to have a girl, you can improve your chances by having sex a day or so before you start ovulating because by the time your egg releases more female sperm will be alive compared to the males.

get the book how to choose the sex of your baby. i have it and im still practicing. in this book its all about timming. you ovulate on day 14. you want to have sex starting day 10 and only up until day 10 if that doesnt work then slowly move to day 11 12 not on day 14 though. this is if you have a regular cycle. 28 days. if its regular but longer u count 14 days before your period and thats the day u ovulate. i could go on and on. but get the book if your really only wanting a girl. i got mine off ebay. u could prolly get it from the library though.

What Jolene said is exactly true, that is how sex of the baby is determined. Still not a fool proof way of getting the gender you want but it's closer.

I think that 2-3 years between kids is optimal... but heck i only have 1 baby so far and was an only child. I now scientifically there is now proven method to insure a boy or girl unless you go to a gender selection clinic (yes they exist and are way expensive) it is a type of in-vitro they can do. but lol the chinese calander works for me and everyone in my family so maybe there is something to it! A tad bit of superstition never hurt anyone!

there's ways to increase the odds but its never 100%
My personal opinion is having a gap of 3-4 years is wonderful. It allows each child to get that one on one attention from you and it takes a bit of the pressure off when you have one child who is potty trained, sleeping through, and starting pre-school and the other still in nappy's and needing you 24/7. My mum had 3 children under five and she was pretty stretched to the limit.

Um, there is no way to guarantee a girl, its all about DNA nothing to do with positions, foods, its a 50/50 shot. Just enjoy getting pregnant, being pregnant and having your baby, no matter what your going to love your baby.

i have two boys ages 7 and 4 and my daughter just turned one. i read so many things on line from:don't get an orgasim, shallow penitration, no doggy style, eating fish and having your partner only releasing a little bit of sperm at the very beging of the vagina b/c boys are better swimmers. who knows. i don't remember trying any of this and i finally got my girl. best of luck!
