Hi ladies! I have been referencing this site for quite a while and finally decided to join today! I have two beautiful Junebugs.....Aidan will be 5 and Ryan will be 2. I would love to have a little girl to complete our family! With my first two, I simply looked up ovulation calculators online and used opks....got pregnant on the first try with both. I know that we tend to have an 'easy' time getting pregnant (with boys)...now I was to learn how to sway the odds for a girl.
I have seen that there are 7 sway factors. Which do you all think are the most important.....timing/ph/diet/other???
So far I have gotten Citracal with Vitamin D (500mg Calcium citrate and 80 mg mag per pill), Baby Aspirin (I heard the it helps lower estrogen levels....I also have a blood clotting disorder and it helps prevent clots), Super B Complex, B6 100 mg (to help lengthen lp), Vitamin C 500 mg, prenatals, and Cystex Cranberry (I got both the pills and the liquid).
I have been taking all of the supplements, expect for the cranberry. I figured I would wait to start taking that in June.....We're going to start trying in July. Should I be taking prenatals when ttc a girl.....I have read confilicting beliefs on that. Are there any other supplements that you would recommend???
I plan on buying opks and have been charting my bbt for the past two months. I was curious about timing......If I am going to do the cut-off method. Do I wait until I get a positive opk then stop and then use my chart to 'prove' that I o'd??? I was just curious how you know when to stop???
I would love to do the diet and will try my best to go by it. I had some questions about it......can you have salads??? Salad dressing??? I have read that cucumbers sway girl.....I like to make them with vinegar and a little bit of sour cream....would that sway girl???
Has anyone tried Lydia Pinkham and have it be successful??? I have read a few success stories online, I was just curious about your thoughts =)
I also have a mini fountain and an ion lamp. I will also be getting some lavendar lotion and plug-ins for the bedroom. And put something pink under the bed, of course!
Please let me know how this sounds so far!!! I am in the early stages of getting ready and just want to make sure that I have all my ducks in a row for July. I'm so excited to get started and hopefull give my oldest the sister that he has been asking for for the past year!!!!
