I am quickly becoming a search-engine addict for all things- TTC, and it’s incredible- the amount of crazy tips, tricks and advice you can find out there…
-plant a rosemary bush
-“if you want a boy, have hubby drink a lot of caffeine right before you do it. It’ll rile up his “guys” and since boy sperm swim faster, caffeinating them would just make ’em TurboSperm and leave the girls in the dust.”
-“if you want a girl, put your husband in a really hot tub before you do it. Hot water kills boy sperm. Does he smoke? Even better if you want a girl.”
How is that even remotely true?! Sounds awful! LOL!
Made me wonder if the hive had any more funny “old wives tales” to pass on… especially if they are particularly humorous or even better: they worked!!!

i can’t remember if it is for a boy or girl but aren’t you supposed to stand on your head after sex for a certain gender.

I heard a rumor that a study was done on the WAY you have sex can change the gender outcome…
kinky rough sex = a boy
gentle love-making = a girl..
idk how true this is or what the studies concluded but the more I think about it! I feel like it could be somewhat true.. Lol I mean, the chemicals released on your bodies has to be different during each way you have sex. Who knows…. 😛

I heard that when you’re standing behind a pregnant person, when you call her name if she turns around to the left, she’s having a girl. If she turns around to the right, she’s having a boy.

@MrsRugbee: hahah good to know! DH says if that were the case we’d have boys… 😛
@infinitykindaluv: lazy sex? Haha I’m sure there’d be some who might say lazy sex = no baby!

@KsoontobeN: By that reason, so should I. U/S says girl so we’ll see in a couple of weeks how accurate those things are!

This thread reminds me of HIMYM, when Lily and Marshall find tips to cheat the gender of their baby… MArshalls dad tells him to eat pickled herring, and dunk his ‘man jewels in ice’ to have a boy, meanwhile Lily is ‘heating up her lady parts’ and eating lemons to make a girl… I always wondered if there was any real reference in these that writers might have pulled from the internet, and this thread makes me think that is entirely possible!
