TTC Girl

I am TTC for baby #2. We have a 10 month old son. I know its silly but what are some myths or methods for trying for a girl? I had a mirena IUD in for 10 months so I have not had a period and I am breastfeeding. Last time I had my IUD removed I got pregnant without having a period. I am saying that because I know some of the methods have to do with tracking ovulation days. Can I do that without a period? I know its a 50/50 shot but just for funsies!

  • I've heard missionary position and to have sex everyday after your period to 3 days before you ovulate. Something about the girl sperm is slower so you want the boy sperm to swim fast and have no egg to fertilize and give the girl sperm time to get there for the egg.Good Luck!

  • You can google all sorts of things on the Internet, but truly - you have a 50-50 shot regardless of what you do.

  • There really aren't any scientific methods, it's all old wife's tales.
