After weeks of research, I have came across some very interesting scientific information that may increase your chances of conceieving a baby girl, naturally! (Of course, keep in mind this is not 100%, but it's worth a try!) It is called the 7 Sway Factors: Diet, Supplements, Hormones, Minerals, Ions -all of which can be altered by your body's pH- and timing...
The "Girl" Diet:
- Dairy (such as milk, yogurt, cheese, etc.)
- Meat (white meat only, such as fish, chicken & turkery)
- Beans (such as green beans, black-eyed peas & kidney beans)
- Nuts (peanuts, walnuts, ect.)
- Bread (cereal, rice & pasta)
- Acidic fruits (i.e. cranberries)
- Green leafy vegetables
DO NOT EAT foods high in sodium (salt) or potassium (bananas or potatoes!)
-Also get plenty of vitamin D (sunlight) & exercise.
*If you do these things together, it will balance your hormones & ions, and lower your pH, with cervical mucus of a 4 being most favorable for female sperm. It has been noted that if doing all 7 Sway Factors correctly, you have a 90% chance of conceiving a girl!
Timing of Intercourse: Contrary to popular belief, Dr. Shettles was wrong about his therory that X-Sperm (girls) are bigger & stronger than Y-Sperm (boys) which are supposedly smaller & weaker. They are actually indistinguishable if compared under a microscope. They also swim at the same speed, BUT the only noteable difference is that the females swim in a zig-zag or circular pattern, while the males swim straight...the gender selection method O+12 has had more sucess than the Shettles Method. O+12 means Ovulation plus 12 hours, which has actually been more accurate in conceieving girls. A lot of women using this method also use a vinegar or lime douche to keep pH levels low, to give the girls a better chance! If anyone has used this method, did it work for you?
Here is an entire list of each of these studies that prove these methods work:
