  • They are just myths. There is no way to help you conceive a girl.

  • Both of those things are old wives tales, sometimes they work sometimes they don't. Something I have seen on multiple TTC websites, however, is that female sperm swim slower than male sperm but also live longer. Therefore, if you only have sex a 2-3 days before ovulation only the female sperm will stay alive long enough to fertilize the egg. I have never done this but I also have 2 boys and plan on trying this method for a girl next time around. I would also look into the chinese birthing chart. As long as the mother's lunar age is correctly calculated it has a high accuracy rate. It worked for me and everyone else I know that used it. GL!!!!!

  • Ok so I just went and did some more research on the "strategy" I was telling you about. Apparently this is part of a proven method for gender selction with an accuracy rate of 75%. If you visit Babyhopes.com there are all kinds of tips for helping to conceive one sex versus the other. They tell you things such as which positions are best, which days are best, whether having an orgasm will increase or lessen your odds, and they explain the reasoning behind each topic. I would definitely check it out, it can't hurt any! :)
