  • Don't waste your money. There's a 50/50 chance of a boy or a girl with each single pregnancy.

  • No. Never heard of it and wouldn't do it. I don't mess with nature. If there is some procedure you can have done to make sure you get a certain sex of baby, I think you are messing with fire. You get what you get and everyone should accept it. I wanted a girl but am pregnant with a boy and I am perfectly fine with that. There is a natural way to IMPROVE your chances of having a girl which is to have sex a few days before you ovulate because female sperm tend to move slower than male sperm. However it is not guarenteed to work. A child is a blessing whether a its a boy or girl and I don't think people need to start messing with that. Its only going to cause problems.

  • Probably involves going to a lab and getting the sperm separated. And even then...there's really no guarantee if the embryo doesn't take.

  • u are probably talking about gender selection...some doctors will do that with the help of IVF

  • I agree I would not mess with nature. I worked for an infertility clinic before, I have never heard of anything like that. Either way I would not try it, I know sometimes you wish for a boy or a girl, but once your child is here, and they are healthy, that fades away.
