  • To have a girl is up to the fathers xy chromosomes, there may be old wives tales on how to have a girl, but there isnt anything you can actually do except hope that he shoots an x and keeps the y's away.

  • There's no way to control whether you have a boy or a girl. You can do certain things to maybe make it a little more likely (have sex a couple days before you ovulate but not right before or after), but you have a 50% chance of having another boy. If you really really want a girl, you could look into adoption. : )

  • There are several methods said to increase chances of conceiving a girl. You can follow a special diet (don't know specifics on that), or you can time intercourse to make it more likely that the X sperm (female gene) reach the egg. X sperm are heavier and slower than Y sperm, but Y sperm do not live as long. So if you time intercourse to happen 3 days before ovulation (NOT DURING OVULATION) then you, theoretically at least, increase chances of having a girl. This is the same method they use in the laboratory, where they "spin" sperm to separate the heavier X from the lighter Y and then select the desired gender from the separated sperm.
