3boys--TTC a GIRL for #4 *Got our BFP*First Ultrasound 9/21/12**NT Scan 10/1/12**Gender Scan 12/6/12**ITS A GIRL!!!!!*

Posted by   + Show Post

Hello Everyone!

My name is Jen :) Im happily married and we have 3 Gorgeous Boys <3 We are TTC baby#4 and we are hoping and praying for a GIRL. We will be happy either way but figured we could sway things in our favor.. atleast alittle :) Ive heard almost everything out there but DH and I sat down and decided on which methods we were going to try..

We decided to start by timing my cycles.(Started charting July2011) My cycles were irregular every month but ovulated around the same day. I also decided to try the diet. I increased my calcium and lowered my salt intake. Also cut out red meat and potassium. We also tried position (shallow penetration) with no orgasm for myself. Lastly we decided to BD everyday after AF until 3.5-4days before ovulation with DH taking a hot shower before BD.

After 5months of charting we have officially tried for the first time this month! If it doesnt happen we will try again next month but we are still hoping for the best :)

My AF started Nov14th and ended Nov18th(CD1-CD5). We BD everyday but.. with no orgasm for me from Nov24th(CD11)-Nov29th(CD16). I recieved a +OPK on Dec3rd(CD20) at 8pm(tested multiple times that day). Temp.shift (increase/rise) Dec4th(CD21)with a -OPK Indicating ovulation took place on Dec3rd(CD20)(72-96hours after last BD).(Fertility Friend Charting). My temp keeps rising everyday.. Im currently on CD28--8DPO..

I will update when I get my AF or a +HPT :) <--First Attempt November14th-December16th, 2011 UPDATE made Dec17th in replies

*UPDATE made on January6th-13th in replies* <--Second Attempt December17th, 2011-January13th, 2012(6th month of charting)

I think it might have something to do with it, if she conceived her boys easily...............I would try moving intercourse up to 2-3 days before O and I think your chances of conceiving will rise dramaticly. Most male sperm will die at the 1-2 day mark so you'll still have a MUCH higher chance of conceiving a girl.

GL hun, either way!!!

I think that has alot to do with it honestly. But hubby & I promised eachother we would stay at ab 3-4days away from O for a year just to be safe. If it doesnt happen by July we will be moving intercourse up and well see what happens :)

*UPDATE- Im so sorry ladies! I've been trying to avoid cafemom so I could "relax" and stop thinking about ttc so I forgot to update my post with my cycle11chart. So here it is. Obvisously we took another month off from ttc to get somethings in order and to lift some stress off our shoulders :) We are actively ttc this cycle (cycle12-July) We did nothing different for cycle11. I started to change my diet again but I will post more details about that when I post cycle12 later this month (July)- So here is my cycle11 chart. My cycle changed AGAIN!!...
