This might be a controversial post – but I was wondering if anyone had any methods to try to conceive a girl. We are likely only having two children and our eldest is a boy, I would absolutely love a little girl so looking for advice. I would be 100% happy even if we did have another little boy, but just seeking advice :)

  • I read somewhere that it depends on sperm temperature, but I have no idea if this is valid or not. Best of luck.

  • Spend time daily thinking of you having a daughter – try to manifest it.

    Gender disappointment is very real so please seek help if you do experience that. You might think you are ok but it tends to come out (unintentionally) throughout the babies life.

  • I’ve heard of trying to conceive a few days before ovulation favours girls – there’s no scientific evidence to back this up thought and I haven’t tried it. But I have 2 girls and am currently pregnant with my 3rd child…and it’s another girl! Haha.

    We were hoping for a boy but we’re absolutely happy & thankful to have another princess in the house!

  • I know, like others have said, there are no proven methods, but I’ve also read that girl sperms live longer so best to time your activity further away from ovulation.
    I have one of each and we did nothing different when trying both times, so can’t say that anything specific worked for our girl ????
    Good luck.!

  • I’m not sure there’s anything that definitely works but I’m pretty sure I’ve read that girl sperm last longer than boy sperm so if you have sex a few days before ovulation you’re more likely to have a girl than if you have sex when you’re actually ovulating….

  • I’m not sure there’s anything scientifically proven.

  • All I know is to pray for what you would like but be ready to love whatever sex you end up with.

    Good luck.

  • There are some long held practices in eastern medicine you might want to look into, although I feel it’s all a coincidence if you happen to get the gender you tried for.

  • Unfortunately I have no tips for you but it is definitely worth trying all the suggested ideas that could help. I wish you well on your journey and I hope the universe can provide you with girl, if not I hope that your baby is healthy – that is all you can ask for.

  • No experince with trying for a specific gender, but according to some, to increase the chance of having a girl, you should have intercourse about 2 to 4 days before ovulation. This method is based on the notion that girl sperm is stronger and survives longer than boy sperm in acidic conditions. By the time ovulation occurs, ideally only female sperm will be left.

  • Nothing wrong with hoping for one of each. Good luck with it all. I am sure there are lots of ideas on google and hopefully those that have tried them out can give solid opinions.
