dont set a time limit on getting pregnant stress can make it harder to concieve. The 1st time you get pregnant it can take several months. charting your cycle is the most effective way to know when to have intercourse ,or not to. I have a software program that helps me chart and actually calculates ovulation, menses etc.only took me once to get pregnant with my son. I recomed charting via softwear as it will be more accurate , faster and easier.charting will also help you to know when you may have a problem(fertility, infection,etc) so you can see a doctor. If you want a girl you will want to chart really well as you have to know when you ovulate. For a girl you have to have sex a few days before ovulation to maximize your chances for a girl. Boy sperm are more fragile than the girl ones and die first even thought they are smaller and faster. girl sperm are bigger and slower and live longer.
