"Another step is to watch your diet. For a girl, try a pre-conception diet rich in calcium and magnesium. Cut down intake of salty foods and red meat. This will make your vagina more friendly to the X sperm, and LESS friendly to the Y sperm. This means, no chips and steak. Yogurt and fish are great."
Explain this to me. You want an acidic vagina, right? So why would you avoid red meat and salt, both of which create acid, but eat fish and dairy, both of which create acid? Got me confused here. If you're going for an acidic body environment, meat and dairy is the way to go. That being said, when I ate high calorie and ate meat, I conceived 3 boys. I lost both babies I conceived while ovo vegetarian before I found out what they were, but I wonder if I'm better able to conceive a girl with this diet since it is also lower calorie. Humph.
I guess I'm gonna at least get better about taking my cal-mag supplements. That I can do! How soon before TTC do you need to load up on cal mag for it to count??
