Post subject: Trying for a boy!
I just had a babay girl in Nov 2007, and my partner and I DESPERATLEY want a boy.

While i was pregnant I was off sex, so my partner masturbated a lot.

we had sex i December but now that we have been reading so much about ovulation adn Dr Shettels method, He gets too nervous and ANXIOUS that he cant get an erection.


(i) Does the Shettlese method work?

(ii) We only do the missionary posotion, can I still get a boy?

what are the best ways of conceivng a boy??

My period was on the 11th Jnauary and todays the 25th Jan am I still fertile, enough to hav a boy?

thanx

Hi, its impossible to have a certain sex.
I really wanna girl as already got a boy, bt this missionary get a boy, lady on top get a girl is a wives tail.
As women on top makes it hard to get pregnant.
Bt i will say that apparently wen falling pregnant there is a slight higher chance of havin a boy.
Wen i gave birth in may 07 i was told that 72 percent of babies bein born that month was boys, lol.
I know how u feel as i really wud like a girl, bt there really is nufin u can do!!

Hi,

I heard that if you want a boy you should have intercourse on the day you ovulate as the boy sperms swim quicker than the girls so will reach the egg first. If you want a girl you should have intercourse 2/3 days prior to ovulation as the girls swim slower and live longer and the boys dont. The X and Y sperm cant remember which is which. Not sue how true this is.
Good Luck

i think ur too obsessed about having a boy. surely as long as its healthy there is no problem! sorry but im going through tons of things at the mo with suspected etopic pregnancy and as long as the baby is healthy thats all i think people should be bothered with! this is also coming from someone with 2 girls and if i have a third girl i wont b at all bothered!!

AS THE MOST IMPORTANT HTING IS THAT U WE HAV HEALTHY BABIES.

I do however think that there is nothing wrong with wanting to balance ur family and taking all the precautons possibel to hav the sex of child u want

theres no way to gurantee a what sex ur baby will be.

sorry to say this but what will be will be no matter how when u have sex it could be a boy or a girl.

by deliberatly setting out for a certain sex ur setting urselfs up for a fall really because what happens if ur baby is a girl??will u just keep having more till u get a boy?m twin sis has 3 girls and i have a boy and girl.its just fate.

u have to accept u may have a girl this time or a boy no matter what u do.

X and Y sperm
A man's sperm contains 22 chromosomes as well as either an X- or a Y-chromosome. A woman's egg contains 22 chromosomes plus an X-chromosome. The sperm that fertilises the egg determines the baby's sex. If the sperm carries an X-chromosome the baby will be XX and will become a girl. If the sperm carries a Y-chromosome the baby will be XY, a boy.

lol!!! think its funny the way your on a mission to have a boy!!! i'd really love a boy first but im just gonna cross my fingers and hope for the best! lol!!!

dont you think you're putting way to much pressure on you and ur partner on having a boy??? i thought becoming pregnant and making love to your partner was supposed to be a natural, relaxed and special thing?, not some strict ritual to have sex in one pacific way in order to have the desired sex of child you want!!!, maybe you should just simply make love without the science and wives tails and hope for the best???

you say that your partner is having trouble holding an erection, maybe its all in his head as he's thinking about 'the job' too much and the pressure of wanting a boy???

when me and my partner were planning on conceving he started drinking parmograne seed juice (probably not spelt right) its a drink that's good for flushing out the system and has been known as a natural viagra,(it helps blood flow in the blood vessels, helping give give a man his erection) it tastes rotten but we fell pregnant only 3wks from when he started drinking it. its available from holland and baretts store and only around 10. maybe this will help????

anyways good luck on having a boy, fingers crossed for you, and for me as i'd rather have a boy so bad!!!! lol!!!

Post subject: hi
actually its pomegranate juice. You can also but the fruit and make juice urself. it will be much more healthy. About concieving a boy. babies doesn't have any sex till certain period and thats why only after that period, by scan you can tell if u r having a boy or girl. It might help if you keep boy baby pictures all around the house and look at it after you get pregnant. i think it works, i saw many people doing that. My mom got pregnant with the 2nd child when i was 18 years old. My parents wanted a boy so desperately because that was the last chance. I don't know if you believe in religion but my mom prayed a lot and had something tied in her arm like a charm. one of the priests gave it to her for concieving a boyt, baby's heath and to protect from miscarriage. At last I had a brother. Don't take me otherwise or think i'm wired. Just wanted to let you know that my mom also wanted a boy and got him.

Good luck !!!

Post subject: hi
I recently saw a documentary where it says that you cannot really choose the sex of your child but you can try and make it work. 1st thing they said is about the position of sex. There are Y and X cromosom. Y is male and X is female. sperm with Y swims faster but do not last for long where X swims slower but lasts for a long time. If you have sex in nature's way (doggy) then its easy for Y cromosm to ge to the egg faster. So you can try this if you want a boy. you can see the video in the following address and they really have some very useful information.

hope this will help you.
