Hi!  I was told have sex on day 10 of my cycle as I ovulate on day 14/15.  Male sperm only lives for up to 3 days while female sperm can live up to 6 days.  My beautiful baby girl was born in 05!  Second time around had sex on day 13 and my handsome little boy was born in 07.  Don't know whether is was just doubt luck or a science.  But it worked for us!!

Do you know when you ovulate approximately? If you do, try and have sex a day or 2 before you ovulate because it is said that while male sperm are stronger swimmers, female sperm live longer, so if you have sex before you ovulate, the sperm left hanging around when the egg does appear are  more likely to produce a girl. It worked for me, I wasn't trying with my daughter, but looking back, my husband and I did have sex before I would have ovulated. Also, we were trying with our son and I did the opposite, waiting until I had already ovulated, and it worked for him too! It makes total sense to me! Good Luck!

I studied how to have a baby girl for a year and watched my ovulation, I have 3 beautiful little boys and yes I finally got my little girl.
I did everything from taking vitamins giving my husband vitamins. He had to have cranberry tablets apparently it kills off the male sperm, after all my research I still believe it is 50/50. But I do know that feeling when you would do anything to have a girl. I hope you all get blessed with children and a baby girl xxxxx

hahaha I have the same issue... only I have 1 boy and I need the little girl since my husband only wants 2 kids.

I read alot of folky stuff about moon cycles and diet!

Like for a girl sex on a full moon where you are the seducer! ;) Sex on even days and during the afternoon are supposed to help as well.

 Also lots of chocolate and a diet rich in fish and veggies.

Also apparently the cooler the testicles before sex the better chance the swimmers are girly.

And missionary and woman on top.

I don't think that you can put alot into these :) but I sure don't see any harm in trying.  Also there are doctors who also claim ways to get gender but they are just as hit and miss... or so I have been told.


Good Luck! I hope you get your little girl!

Google "Shettle's Method" it isn't 100 percent accurate, but it is about 80 percent for a girl if done correctly. ...or you could borrow my two year old but you might change your mind!
