  • bot swimmers are faster
    but peter out sooner than girls
    so position
    swallow for girls
    deep for boys
    but i think i read something about time in calendar

    maybe play all chick music if you want a girl
    and good ol' boy music if you are trying for a boy

  • We used Shettle's method which is based on the premise that boys swim faster, but die quicker than those girl sperm. We used it to up the odds of a boy the first time and girl the second and that is what we got. Nothing is 100%, but Shettle's is based on sound science to up the odds for you.

  • My MIL says if the guy is thinking about himself it will be a boy and if he is thinking about you (the woman) it will be a girl. Since I have two boys, guess we know who my husbands thinks about most often, don't we? lol

  • Unless you spin that sperm in a centrifuge and then separate them by sex and insert,it's a 50/50 chance

  • Look up the Shettles Method. Nothing is totally accurate, but you can tip the odds one way or the other.
