  • Google the Chinese calendar. It can tell you when to conceive a boy/girl.

  • I found the Chinese calendar to be inaccurate. (It said girl...mine is definitely a boy!)

    Supposedly your best chances of having a boy are to have sex right when you ovulate...male sperm are faster swimmers. They also die more quickly. If you have sex a day or two before you ovulate, you're more likely to have a girl.

    But even then.....mine was supposed to be a girl by that logic. He';s not. **grin**

    Really, your chances are 50-50. Only way to guarantee a boy? Adopt one. **smile**

  • So the X-Sperm Make Girls and Y-Sperm Make Boys there are appox equal of each.. but the old wives tales say that the x -sperm (girl) actually will live longer.. So if you make love 4-6 days before ovulation and sperm still survive according to that they will most likely be girls... if you make love the day before or day of ovulation you have equal chance.. just google... xx sperm and xy sperm see the studies.. :)

  • I'm the mom of 3 girls...and it's OK! :) My belief is-you are going to have a boy or girl and God will choose...

  • Have sex on the day you ovulate putting your hips up on 4 pillows. O'ing at the same time might help too!

    Thats how we got our middle son LOL. Our other two sons were concieved after I ovulated, I think within a day or two of it happening if memory serves.

  • There's nothing you can "do" to determine gender, it's purely up to whether your husband donates an X or a Y chromosome.

  • If God wants you to have a boy, He'll give you a boy. There is nothing really you can do about it.
