  • thank you and same goes for you!!! i have read a lot about it and a lot of the pages say that if you bump uglies the day before, on the day, or the day after you ovulate you are more likely to get a boy due to the different levels of the different chemicals in your body.. also the boy swimmers are spose to be faster, but bigger.. so if you lay with your hips in the air it is spose to help as well... but it could all just be nonsense too lol!!

  • I've heard you need to time sex close to ovulation as possible. Not sure how true that is but I thought I'd throw it out there.

  • thanks :) ive been studying for the last few weeks on this subject and have actually found a lot of interesting stuff on and they have said the same thing. I guess male sperm are faster, but also die faster so the closer to ovulation you get, the more males there will be waiting for the egg!!! interesting!
