  • Try googling it.. there are a bunch of different things they say you can "try" but I think a lot of it is just for fun. Look into the Chinese Birth Calendar.. that is something that HONESTLY seems pretty ligit to me. I tried looking up me and everyone that I knew who were pregnant and literally with ALL of us it predicted the gender correctly.

    Good luck!

  • If you are fixated on a single gender, don’t have another baby; it is not fair to your potential daughter

  • have sex right before you ovulate and not any sooner. male sperm are faster but die sooner. female sperm last longer but are slower. But really, its a 50/50.

  • mrs pulley is right. about the male and female sperm. People trying for a daughter should soak in a hot bath to weaken the male sperm beforehand. I read that 3 days before ovulation and up to ovulation are the times most likely to conceive a girl. that the day of ovulation and the days following are more likely for a boy. but like she said-- these are only hints and the only 100% way would be in vitro. it's always a gamble. Good luck.

    You know, we've noticed that ALL of the infants we see in our community are girls. ALL. Haven't seen an boy under the age of 7 since moving here. Pollution? Hormones in the water? WTH?
