  • I heard on a radio show once that if you douche with baking soda water, you'll neutralize the acid in your vagina and make the environment in your vagina less acidic and thus more friendly to male sperm, and if you douche with vinegar the environment will be more acidic and vavor the female sperm instead. I have no idea if it's true or not. I was just overjoyed to get a baby at all.

  • My sister swears by the 'stand on your head' method. She had 5 boys and then had a girl...

  • Thanks guys! She will definitely feel blessed if she has another boy, she's not ungrateful for the miracle of having any baby. She just would like to do hair and dresses this time!

  • Tell her to research the shettle's method which ups your chances whichever way you would like based on the science that girl sperm tend to live longer and the boys tend to swim faster. Used it to up our chances both times and got what we wanted both times. Not fool proof but it helps.

  • The only way to GUARANTEE a baby girl, is to have a fertility specialist separate the sperm & inject only female sperm into her.

  • There is NOTHING that will guarantee gender of a child. No matter what she does or tries it will always be 50/50
