Do you think you can influence baby's sex?

These days, some people think they can influence the sex of the baby (hello, Posh Spice?). What are some of the ways you've heard of people trying and do you believe they work?

Science has shown they work. "Male" sperm move slower then "female" sperm but live longer. So if you have sex close to ovulation, the odds of having a girl are higher. If you have sex at the very beginning of your fertility, the odds of having a boy are higher. And I do believe them, yes. :)

actually, I believe that is backwards ^^^

Male sperm are FASTER but die out quicker than female sperm. So you need to have sex closer to ovulation to have a boy. Girl sperm live longer and can last a few days where male sperm don't..


I don't honestly believe you can change what you are meant to have though. Guess it's fate. You are given the gender you are meant to have :)
