  • This probably isnt true, but I heard if you eat a lot of fruit you will be more able to have a girl, or the chances are higher. Thats probably not true...

  • I know that if you are willing to pay good money, you could do an in-vitro thingy and you determine the sex of the baby. They also have some that cost more but you can actually decide which features the baby gets from the mom and the dad (creepy). I don't know why someone would want to choose what their baby looks like but I can understand someone who wants to choose the sex of their baby.

  • amberlyn is right, that procedure is called IVF with PGD, which i will consider if my next child is a boy, however in San Francisco it costs 16 thousand so im not sure when i would come up with the money ;]

  • Taking magnesium, calcium and cranberry pills are supposed to increase your chances of having a girl I guess. Check out the group on Cafemom called "Choose the sex of your next baby". There are many different methods to look into. I was going to do the O+12 method for conceiving a girl, so you can research that as well.

    I already have a daughter, but I want another one!

  • the Chinese gender calender is 89-93% accurate depending on who you ask/which website you visit. It was true for me and my MIL, but make sure you calcuate your LUNAR age and the lunar month, they run on a different calender then us (we have the Georgian calendar)

  • If you want a girl you should have sex towards the begining of your fertile days and abstain right around ovulation. I flipped that method to get my son! =) MY mom used it too successfully

  • Yes that is right^^ sex two days before ovulation for a girl and the day of ovulation for a boy. It's called the shettles method google it and you can get all the instructions there is also a book called how to choose the sex of your baby.
