Hi everyone! I cant beliiiieve I am saying this but I am soo broody!! I want to try for one more baby (have 3 children) and as I have 2 boys and 1 girl I am leaning ever so slightly towards having a girl... did you do the Shettles method?? did if work or fail you? I have only a slight preference but if it worked for you I will give it a go, if it didnt I am happy to just "baby bounce" whenever the mood takes us and let fate decide :-D I look forward to hearing from you xx

Didn't work for me - 4 day cut off was my little boy!

Strict girl diet, low pH and frequent bd through ovulation has worked twice for me now :)

 cut off meaning we had sex 1.5-2 days before I ovulated. this was actually a very very LUCKY happy accident as I had planned to do O+12 (12 hours AFTER ovulation-has got better results than shettles), but, due to stopping Vitex (hormonal supplement) that month I O'ed 8 days early!

this was our 'naughty' BD before our proper attempt so we went for it how we wanted me on top with the big O to boot!Embarrassed

However I was IG diet crazy for 7 months previous, lost loads of weight, using replens to lower PH, on all the supps, so it was only the positions and timing that was a bit unorthodox for a sway.

Hope this helps! x

Candyfloss - Congrats on getting two girls with swaying!!  And bd'ing through O too, that gives me some hope!  This month is my first month TTC and I still dont know what timing to do...  Also question about your IG diet, how strict were you?  Did you have any cheats?  Ive only been on it 5 weeks now and am really struggling!!  And it was my DS birthday and I ate cake, a piece of cake cant completely stuff up my sway can it? im being really strict otherwise...

 I dont think one piece of cake can ruin a sway. I cheated three days before attempt and ate three apples and two oatcakes cos we were stuck on a ferry and that's the only thing I could find to eat! Was sooo scare i'd ruin it but it's been okay...Remember ladies conceive girls all the time with no swaying at all. x

oh and what do I take to lower PH?? does that make it more acidic?? as I read more alkaline in the vagina makes it more of a happy enviroment for a boy? x
