Hi I am a mother of two boys and wanting a girl really badly!! I have heard a couple things about ways you can try to get pregnant for a specific sex. Does anyone know of this?? I have been looking online and found a book called "How to choose the sex of your baby" Does anyone have this book? We are not trying to get pregnant yet but maybe within 3 or 4 months. So I am just trying to look into this. If anyone has any advice or done this kind of things with success please let me know. Any help would be appreciated as I can not handle any more boys!! Thanks!!

What can I do next?

So What Happened?

I have just recently noticed that I had a couple of people asking what happened then. Just so everyone knows, I did follow the book and I now have a happy healthy 8 mth old baby GIRL!! So, from my experience it worked. Not to say that it would all the time. I am so happy that I read the book and tried some of there suggestions. Good luck everyone that is also trying this!

If you go to webmd.com, they have an ovulation calendar that allows you to pick which sex to try for. The best way to get to it is to type in the search bar ovulation calendar and it will be in a box that is labeled webmd health scan. It is based on that book, but be prepared nothing is 100%.

My friend and I were pregnant at the same time and we checked the chinese gender calendar to see what we would be having, since then we've checked about 10-(possibly 20 b/c she checks more people than I do) and I think only 1 was wrong. So you can try to plan according to that (search online for "chinese gender calendar" and find one that has it based on mother's age when baby is born) Good luck!

That book is by Dr. Shettles, it is a proven method with good results if you follow their rules. I think your chance of having a girl is 70 to 80% with that book (much better than 50% if you don't do anything).

Hi R.:
This will sound crazy, but I used the chinese gender chart specifically to get a son and it worked. There are 2 different ones out there. I used the one that comes up when you type it in the search on ivillage.com. We only "tried" on my boy months and my son will be a year old soon. I had never heard of it, but when I was pregnant with my daughter, who is now 4, my sister-in-law was firm on her belief that I was having a girl despite the fact that everyone else was saying boy because of the way I was carrying her. My s-i-l never waivered. After I had her I asked why and she said that she'd looked it up on the chart. I have traced and predicted countless people and babies and it's only not worked out on 2 people, a nephew of mine and this s-i-l. My s-i-l tried for a boy herself and wasn't careful and oopsed another girl after 2 and the chart is accurate for her too. We were careful and just skipped the sex on the girl months during the fertile times. Good luck whatever you choose.

Well I know for me as well as for quite a few of my friends this seems to deem true

My sons were conceived within days of my period ending, all 3 of them, and my daughter was conceived closer to the 2 week mark. Its supposed to be that you get pregnant 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after your period, well I have never gotten pregnant before but I have after and everytime its come out to be the same thing.. Thankfully I had 1 girl out of the 4 kids and I am happy that I did. She is a beautiful blessing. Now at 5 I couldn't image not having a daughter in my life.

Good Luck I hope something works for you

P.S.

That Chinese Calander worked for 2 girls in my office but for myself and my friend it said we were both having girls and we both had boys, so don't completely rely on that one.

This may so like something you would never do but here you go.

no one can play God. so no matter what you try nothing is 100%. if you constantly talk about wanting a girl, instead of a boy (which I'm sure you don't do), you're boys are gonna suffer. A lady that married one of my dad's best friends from grade school wanted a girl- 4 boys later they gave up.......they have only grand daughters now, I think around 5.

Hi R.,

A friend of mine swears by the book "Taking Charge Of Your Fertility." It has worked for all 4 of her children. She got exactly what she wanted each time she tried.

Good luck!! I have one of each and I love both, but girls sure are great :-)

R., Best of luck to you. I also have 2 boys and would love a girl, but I just have that feeling that I'm one of those moms who, if I kept trying, would have as many boys as kids.LOL You know the ones, who have like 5 kids all the same sex. I was as girly as they come growing up. Dolls clothes all that stuff and a girl would be heaven. Don't get me wrong my boys are THE BEST. I'm sure you know, I learned to like power rangers, pokemon,video games etc. and now I'm glad I have boys instead, but any chance I have to shop for a girl I go a little crazy. But I digress. I believe God matches us to our kids and we get what we need, but I hope in your case he thinks you "need" a girl. lol Peace&Love,A.
