Only way to guarantee you can pick the gender, IVF with pre-genetic testing, and it will cost you around 20k

holy geez! My best friend was ALL about this stuff. She is now about to have a baby boy. She was more interested in the “getting pregnant” rather than the gender of the baby…

She said she read a book called “taking control of your fertility” or something like that.

She told me about the lifespan of the male sperm vs the female sperm and how male sperm swim faster but die sooner and female sperm live longer but swim slower… or something like that. It’s interesting!

We always dtd right at my fertile window and I’m having a girl if that says anything…

It’s a 50/50 shot.

We BD’d three days before ovulation and I’m hoping for a girl (but fine if it’s a boy!). Hopefully I find out in a week and a half at my next scan. I think the slow female sperm/fast male sperm is true hence our attempt at swaying, but nature is very unpredictable haha!

bostonbride2016:  Not a joke. Many people do this as many people have preference over what gender they want. I have not yet tried to have a baby but when we do start trying I plan to try the gender tips. I would really like a girl and a boy and I do not think I will have the money to have 6 kids just in order to get both. So it is worth a try, not like it will hurt anything in the process.
