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)

OP--that is SO AWESOME!!! YAYYYY!!!! :) CONGRATS!!! Girls are SO MUCH FUN to buy for!! I had FOUR wonderful boys and I told my DH I would try ONE LAST time for a girl. I told him if it was another boy, I was still done! The 2nd appt. at my OB/GYN she did the doppler and she said, "WOW!!" I said, "WHAT!" I thought something was wrong. She said, "I don't know what this means, but your babies heartbeat is 160 beats per minute!" I confidently told her, "That means its a GIRL!!" My boys heartbeats were NEVER above 135!!! Sure enough, at my 20-week ultrasound, I heard, "ITS A GIRL!!!!" WHOO!! HOO!!! HOOORAY!!!! I was in shock! I could not believe it! I seriously did not think my DH had it in him to make girls!! ROFL!! Not to mention there are more BOYS in his family than girls! Your boys will ADORE their baby sister! I know my boys really love having a baby sister! :)
