So, you have decided that you want to add a little pink bundle of joy to your life? Well, it’s no longer just hope for the best! From the silly to the super scientific, we have compiled a list of tips for mommies who are looking to get pregnant with a baby girl. Here we go!
Have se.x 2-3 days before ovulation
Female sperm are bigger than male sperm, but that means they are also slower swimmers. The girls also live longer than the boys. This means that by having se.x a few days before ovulating, rather than after, you might be able to give your girls a head start. Since sperm can live up to five days, the tricky part is figuring out when to have se.x as far from ovulation that you possibly can, but still while the sperm are alive. The reasoning in this is that the males will not make it to the uterus, but the girls will. This is a very tricky thing to time, and by ovulating sooner than you expected or having an irregular cycle can leave you conceiving a boy despite all your hard work! Also remember that after you have se.x before ovulation, make sure not to have any more unprotected se.x until at least two days AFTER you ovulate.
Girl sperm love acidic environments, like the entrance to the vagina. Therefore, your partner should try to make sure that penetration is shallow and that sperm are located as close to the entrance to the vagina as possible. This will inhibit the male sperm and give the females a better chance.
Umm, sadly, you also might want to skip the 0rgasm when trying to conceive a girl. Female 0rgasms make the vag!na more alkaline, just the thing that girl sperm hate. Also try positions like missionary or woman on top that might make for more shallow penetration.
Change your diet
You can change your body’s acidity and PH through your diet, which might help you to give your girl sperm a more acidic environment. You need to make sure to eat less sodium, potassium and caffeine, while increasing your calcium and magnesium. Chicken, turkey, rice, raspberries, blueberries, green beans, cherries, cheese, corn and eggs are all good choices for mommies looking for baby girls. You can also take calcium and magnesium supplements.
Old wives’ tales and such
There are a ton of old wive’s tales to predict how to have a girl. Some old legends indicate that the woman should seduce the man if they want to get pregnant with a girl. Also, having se.x on the night of a full moon is supposed to produce a girl. How’s this one? Eat lots of chocolate or sweets in general. There are also wives tales that say having se.x in the early afternoon will produce a girl.
Of course none of these methods are guaranteed, but there are a ton of people who swear by them! If you are curious to whether or not you can have a girl, give these methods a try! It is not going to hurt anything, and you just might get your wish!
