I think this post will really help a lot of women with their sway attempts. This is going to be a sticky post for moms who have their BFP or have already had their baby, to post what they did for their sway attempts. If gender is not yet known, but you are pregnant, just leave the gender portion as unknown or to be determined and update when you find out. If you have already had the baby, please include the gender. Here are the fields to fill out. Please quote or copy and paste this format and fill out as many sections as you can. This will give moms ideas for what things to try and what things seem to work or not work. Thanks!

Timing method (cut off before O, O+12, no timing method used):

Thanks for the info. I hope we get a lot more replies like this to help moms with their sway attempts! I plan to use a lot of things to expose me to negative ions as well.

By you doing the deed up to 2 days prior to ovulation, and you did NOT have the BIG O, you actually increased your chances that you would have a girl!! My DH and I had sex two days prior to ovulation and we did missionary position. I did NOT have the BIG O and we got our baby GIRL!! The closer to ovulation that you have sex, the better the chance of having a boy! The BIG O in the woman, actually helps propel the sperm faster giving the male sperm an advantage! SOOOO---without the BIG O, the sperm have a longer, harder 'road to travel' so-to-speak! So glad you got your girl!  ( :
