I want one more baby, but I really want a boy

I have 2 girls I wouldn't care if I did have another girl, but with the last baby this is going to be I really want a lil boy. I know nothing if full proof, but how can I up my chances of having a boy this time around? I am afraid if it isn't a boy, hubby will want another one and wont want me to get my tubes tied, but I don't want anymore than 3 kids

  • eat veggies all the time- not sure what the shettles method is but i once read in a parenting mag that if you ate more veggies you were more likely to have a boy and if you ate more fruit you were more likely to have a girl. ive had 2 frends "test" this theory and both got the hoped for results! worth a try anyway i guess!

  • Here's a crazy thought.....ADOPT! That way you will get your boy and you will be doing something good.

  • Adopting would be "your own." Blood really isn't that important.

    Your chances really are 50-50. you can look up the Shettles method. Didn't work here but some moms claim success.

  • I got my boy first and my girl second using Shettle's. Don't know if it was Shettle's that worked or just chance, but we got what we were trying for.
