Hello! My husband and I want to try and conceive our 3rd child! We have two gorgeous and healthy boys and would like to try for a girl! I KNOW it's not proven or 100% sure, but I figured I'd try! I read that eating acidic foods could help! What kinds of food should I eat and when should I eat them? Thanks! We want to start TTC next month! :)

It's actually been disproven but it doesn't hurt to try!

Not sure about the food but I heard having sex days before your Ov so that gives the girls a chance to swim :)

It all up to your husband. His sperm that penetrates you egg will either contain and X chromosome or Y chromosome. X being a girl, Y being a boy. I don't think he can to do much in changing what chromosomes his sperm hold. It's all up to that one fast penetrating swimmer that gets to the egg first.
