- Wedding: May 2009
Let me preface this by saying that when my husband & I start trying to conceive, we will be incredibly happy and grateful if we get pregnant, no matter what the sex! We would both love a boy OR a girl.
But we were talking and we both mentioned that we’d love to have a girl first, and then a boy. I was shocked, because I always expected him to want a boy first. I read TCOYF and it mentioned the timing (early) for a girl. A few friends have mentioned they did it and it worked. However, I don’t want to ask hem about it, beause we want to be private about when we are going to TTC.
So I’ve come to the hive! Have any of you tried this… if so, did it work?
I am on my second month of charting (avoiding). My first, my peak day was very clear, although a little late (day 16, I think). This month, it was not as clear (I had EW a few days before the temp shift, then creamy, then EW again, then creamy 2 days before the temp shift).
ANYWAY… if you have tried, this I’d love to hear from you. The boy timing seems a lot easier, but how many days before ovuluation did you have sex and still manage to conceive? I’m worried that the first month I’ll completely mess up and have sex wayyyy too early! LOL!
I also find it a littttle bit hard to stop trying a few days before ovulation… it almost seems like a waste of a month of trying, because there’s a MUCH greater chance we won’t get pregnant!
Like I said, all I am hoping and wishing for, when we do start TTC, is a healthy baby- boy OR girl. But I’d love to hear your experiences!
