Sway Attemps and Outcomes! New post 7-13-12..come check this out please.

Posted by   + Show Post

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!

Any other info: I am shocked I got my girl because this was my laziest sway since my chemical in April last year. It was taking a long time to get pregnant which isn't normal at all for me as I'm super fertile, so the month I got my BFP, I decided to ease up on the swaying a lot and then it happened just like that so I really thought it was going to be a boy. I did do the girl diet, but not super strictly but stayed away from all big no no foods and made sure to stay on low salt and high on calcium. Instead of only doing the day after O, we did it before O as well. Only doing it after O I believe is what the problem was with getting pregnant. I had no BIG O for about a week before ovulation and my pH was nice and low. Had the MaterniT 21 blood test done which shows it is a GIRL!

Gender result: GIRL!!!
