  • create an account with yourdays.com. you can choose what you are trying to achieve (prevent pregnancy, achieve pregnancy, conceive a boy, conceive a girl). the idea is... male sperm swim faster, but die quicker.... so you should have sex closest to your ovulation day.
    we have a boy, and would like another boy, but by trying to choose, you essentially are cutting your chances in half (by not having sex the first half of your fertile week)... and we're so desperate to get pregnant... that we're just humping like bunnies, and we'll take whatever we can get! :)

  • only thing that is 100% is PGD, and well that has user error (it actually happened once that the lab messed up and gave her the wrong sex!)

    but it costs like 16,000 so im guessing thats not an option :p

  • It's a 50/50 chance. Just hope you have a healthy baby.
