Not technically lol, I thought I'd be safe the day after OV but no lol.
I would like another girl and have been researching the difference between shettles and o+12. There seems to be more of a success rate with o+12!
Shettles (or also called cut off) is too complicated for A LOT of people, you have to guess when you're going to OV and cut off, with o+12 you look for OV first.
Ingender.com is fabulous full of info!
Shettles says 5-2 days before OV for a girl but some stuff I've read shows that 5days before favours boys, and 2 days before for a girl, but if you OV even a day or two early then it's prime boy territory!
An In gender expert says timing is not really a huge factor, but ph levels and diet are the most important. And she says o+12 in her experience has a much higher success rate and LESS opposites than shettles.
Have a look on in gender, sooo much more info than what I've just said! I don't think she posts anymore, but her name is Tamara so look out for any posts of hers, she knows that she's talking about :)



Saying all that though I have a shettles girl and o+12 girl, but they were both unplanned in a "we'll be right it's just once" moment lol
Good luck :)

Thanks! We don't want to try for awhile, but it's never too early to start researching!

I really wanted a girl this pregnancy and was kinda dissappointed when I found out it was another boy just cause this should be our last one but I am not any less excited just sad when I see cute dresses and what not

Well if you don't get the gender you wanted you can always blame SO, it's his sperm that determen the sex of the baby.

My DH & I both wanted a girl this pregnancy and when we went to get the gender ultrasound done at first it looked like a boy and I seriously thought I was going to ball. My hubby has 2 boys, 1 from me 1 from his ex. I had my daughter around the same time he had his first born so our two oldest are 6 months apart. I got with my DH and had a boy. this time around I wanted a girl and so did he, when we thought we saw a ball sac I literally felt so disappointed but then she got a clear shot and it was a girl and man did him and I both flip out. We didn't even realize how disappointing it would've been.. it doesn't make you a horrible person, as long as you know that no matter what you will love the child and only want them to be healthy then you're not failing anywhere. You're just being human.

After 2 boys, I ached for a daughter my third pregnancy sometimes crying I wanted one so bad. I did feel disappointed a little to find out #3 was again a boy but quickly let it all go remembering what a blessing it is to even BE pregnant.When I got pregnant this 4th time I put it out of my mind it could be a girl and what do you know, in less than 2 weeks I will have my Evelyn Grace <3 So it is normal. But always be thankful for these sweet little miracles!

When I got pregnant the second time around I wanted another boy. I didn't know anything other than raising a boy and I was scared to have a girl. I found out I was having a girl and I had to fights back tears but quickly got over it.



Now I wouldn't have it ANY other way!
