Hi Peony, wow thank you so much! I really appreciate your help. I want a little girl so bad and after researching on in-gender for a while I think that moon signs might have more of an influence on gender than all of this dieting and other stuff does. I also read the one post where you posted about the research you have done on gender conception and moon signs and was absolutely blown away by the results! I can't believe more people haven't caught on to it yet! Too many successes for it to be a fluke.
A question though about the ovulation, are you saying that your lunar O and menstrual O are two completely different O's? I thought acoording to the Odan site that the dates they gave you for your lunar O were supposed to match identically to your menstrual O, am i wrong on that? Thats the part I find a little confusing. I thought we only O'd once in a month?? And are you saying that with the chart you get from Odan there are only certain months when you can try for a girl, not days? I was thinking maybe they went by moon signs but doesn't sound like it. I'd like to do what you are doing if the moon signs don't match up as girl for menstrual O than try with lunar O if it's a girl month but I'm afraid it will be wrong and I'll end up with a boy if it's not in a girl sign! There's so much to think about when doing this.
Once again I really appreciate your help with this. Looks like you are going to be ttc'ing for your girl pretty soon!! I'm praying for you so hard my friend. I really, really hope that you get her very soon. I'm sure you will, you seem very knowledgable about all this! I will continue to pray for you until you get your daughter. Best of luck to you!
Grrr, I typed a long reply and then it vanished! Don't you hate that?! I'll try again...
Thanks for your message. All of the Canadian ladies I've met on here are so lovely.
Every woman is different, where some will have the lunar O and menstrual O always lining up and others have it totally separate or just aligning every now and then. It is a good idea to keep track of your cycle on fertility friend or something similar, so you can compare both. The main things I do is BBT each morning before I get up, keep an eye on CM, and OPKs leading up to O. I have got a +OPK before my lunar O and another +OPK before my menstrual O one month when they were about 5 days apart. But that was just out of interest, mostly I just do OPKs before my menstrual O.
O twice a month is possible as studies have shown a woman can release a follicle even a few times a month. However, after an O, the hormones released may mean that further O's can't easily lead to a conception. I think this is why Odan say that if the lunar and menstrual O occur together you are very fertile. I have no idea how many women have got pg from their lunar O alone, but if they are separate, I know a lot of women use it as an extra time to TTC each month. This is best if you just want to get pg of course, without trying to sway. Otherwise you need to make sure it is a girl month.
Lunar calendars give you a precise date each month when you can have a lunar O, and next to it is a gender sign. Most ladies alternate boy, girl, boy, etc each month. Some have months with no gender specified, if their O is due near the change of moons. So they do use moon signs, it is just that they say they can predict the gender as your lunar O is determined by when and where you were born. It is when the moon is in exactly the same position it was when you were born.
Lunarium is excellent to check any date to see what moon sign it will be in. You need to adjust the times given for each moon sign (they last around 2.5 days) to your time zone as they are in London time. You can also check back if you know your past conception date or anyone elses, to see what moon sign they O in, and if they ended up with the same gender.
GL looking into it all. I found it confusing at first, but after 10 months think I have got my head around most of it. I just need a chance to put it into practise and see if it works for me! I'm happy to answer any questions as best I can. I'm not trying to tell you not to buy an Odan calendar (I did after all!) but you may as well start with the free one on astro.com.
