  • Both times we just relaxed and let nature do it's thing. We didn't stress about it or anything. We just took on a "whatever happens happens" attitude.

  • Try to use this ovulation calendar tool to find perfect time to conceive a boy or a girl.

  • There really are no "tricks" to getting pregnant. The best things you can do are to track your ovulation and line up extra sex with that. There are a million ovulation calendars and calculators online, as well as guides to ovulation symptoms. You can also find very inexpensive ovulation urine tests to do at home. Some say that continuing to lay prostrate after sex for around 20 minutes or to have sex in positions where you're lying on your back may increase chances, but there's no proof of that.

    The most important thing is that you and your husband take care of yourselves. A healthy husband will produce more viable sperm, and a healthy, low-stressed you will decrease your likelihood of not releasing an egg.
