We want a boy!

I know that tequnically its all up to mother nature..but my fiance and i want a little boy so badly! I know that its an aweful thing to say but when i think of having a girl i get sad. Some days i feel bad for feeling that way but even when we've been out baby shopping we only look at boy stuff...i walk right past anything thats girl. Is it wrong to feel that way?? Anyway what i wanted to ask this question for was for the other moms and dads out there who wanted a boy..what kinds of things did you do to better your chances. Things you ate..things you did anything of that nature. Thank you everyone because i know ill get some supportive answers. Wishing everyone else baby dust too!!!

  • It's all up to the sperm that reaches the egg. You get what you get.

  • There is no way to make yourself more likely to get a boy.

  • That's exactly how I was, only the opposite. I really wanted a little girl, and got twin girls..yay! So maybe you will have twin boys if you pray really hard for it! It is up to the sperm though!

  • As I understand it, "boy sperm" - the ones carrying the Y chromosome - are faster but less resiliant than their "girl sperm" sisters. So having sex when and only when you are most fertile, right at the peak of ovulation, increases your chances of getting a boy.

    But really one of the most important life lessons is that you should "flower where you grow", take what life gives you, do so gratefully and gracefully, and hopefully you will be blessed with a healthy baby. Good luck, sweetheart.

  • I can relate.. I always knew I would have a girl and couldn't wait to buy the cute pinky things.. we found out I was having a boy at my 5 month U/S and I will admit to being temporarily disappointed, but it still passes once that baby gets here

  • That method of only having intercourse close to the day of ovulation it is suppose to work pretty well. Good luck
