When should you stop TTC...for a boy?

Monique - posted on 02/11/2010 ( 10 moms have responded )




We have 2 daughters and decided to try for a boy. I've followed the books, checked my ovulation prediction kit. According to all the "boy" rules we finally found the date, time, position, etc.. I know it sounds silly, but just making sure. Do you continue the same steps each day until your cycle ends or is one time enough (don't push your chances)?

Any tips?

I just want healthy babies... any sex, any order, have a boy and trying for another baby, I would be happy with all boys if they are all healthy x

One day, as long as you know the "right" day, during your cycle should be enough. My husband and I used condoms everyday except "that" day and conceived the gender we hoped for: First Boy, then Girl, and then Boy.

I have 3 girls and my husband wants a boy so bad! We were told our 3rd was a boy but when SHE was born we were quite surprised.
I have read the same thing.... the boy sperm is faster, so you should have sex once u know u have ovulated.

Boy sperm swim faster but don't last as long. Girl sperm swim slower but last far longer - so the closer to ovulation you are the odds are higher that it'll be a boy. My husband has 3 daughters and wants a boy - I think it's his boy sperm getting lost and failing to ask for directions :)

I have a son and honestly i hear so many different stories, the only thing i know to be true in my opinion.. Every g/f i have that got pregnant on an oops or one night stand or a quickie with their hubby has had a girl and everyone that is TTC and has a very active sex life like 4 or more times a week has had a boy, including myself. So i think the further away from ovulation the sperm is used it's more likely to be a girl and the closer it's more likely to be a boy but how do you tell because you could have sex on mon tue and wed and get pregnant from tues sperm so you can't ever really tell... i just say try everyday and you will get pregnant with whatever god has intended for you :)
