  • I think that this is something that you should speak with your mother about...she should have had this talk with you a long time ago.

    All joking aside, there is only old wives tails about how to conceive one sex or the other. You can't decide what you are going to have!

  • Only God can give you what HE wants you to have. I wanted a girl, too. But now I have 3 boys and No girl! Wives tales are not true.

  • The only way to have one guaranteed?

    Send hubby to a fertility lab. Get his sperm separateed into x and y. then get artificially inseminated with the x sperm.

    Problems with the plan: The sperm might not stay viable long enough. probably won't find a lab to do least, not without spending a fortune.

    Seriously? There's no guaranteed way. I'd heard some timing thing, and actually tried that and was CERTAIN I would have a girl. Nope.

  • The men carry the x and y.. You can try to lean things in your favor.. the female sperm carriers are slower swimmers but they live longer, if you track your ovulation and have sex a few days (3 days or more ) before Ovulation -- but refrain on your most fertile days.. you can slightly increase your chances. Male carrying sperm are faster swimmers but tend to die faster as well.

  • exactly...and even if you try an old wives take and you get a girl that's because it' s kinda 50 50! lol chances are good. A lab could maybe do it..but it would cost A LOT and not sure they do it for just anyone? not sure how that works yet. If you don't want a baby boy then I say don't have sex ;)

  • My husband and I wanted to try for a boy after having two girls. WebMd has a really cool ovulation calander with options to try for a girl, boy or no preference. It talks alot about timing, position, and what kind of underwear your husband should wear.

  • Light a pink candle, gaze into the flames and chant 'girl girl girl' for either half an hour or till the candle goes out...then fill up a bathtub with pink jello and rose petals, invite a male in there (husband, bf, anyone with a penis), and have sex with them at least 13 times. Then you will have a girl.
