Name : Threewilly's

Swaying attempt : Natural, and tbm with lime.

Gender resulted? : GIRL  Baby Girl !! ( Yay!)

PH

Cm ph : 4.3-4.5

Dh ph : 7- 7.5

Douche type and when : In previous attempts, used lime douche, but dropped it this time as I was not falling pergnant. I did use 1ml of lime afterwards to lower as combined ph was aobut 5.5.Did this about 4 times, aswell as acijel to lower ph. I also used a finger of acijel everyday from af to O, aswell as an hour before dtd.

Big O :NO!!Hmm

MINERALS

Calcium : Around 1000-1200 per day

Magnesium : 300mg a day

Potassium : Ig diet

Sodium : Ig diet

DH minerals : Follwed ig diet with me, but I was a bit stricter. Also took about 1000mg of calcium a day, 300 mg of magnesium, no sodium, and low potassium.

DIET

Dietary changes : Followed ig diet strictly for 7-8 weeks before first attempt. So did Dh. Conceived on the third attempt, so was on the diet for about 4 months !

Did you continue diet after attempt/how long? I had a few cheat days after each attempt, to keep me sane. I figured if it kept me on track in the long run, it was ok. I didn't have potatoes or tomatoes or salt or anything, mainly cheated with chocolate. I also started to add some baby spinach to my diet here and there, as I kept getting sick. I had recurrent strep throat which was driving me nuts and I think I was so lackin in my diet, that my body struggled to fight it off. I had read an article saying if you wanted a daughter, then eat your leafy greens because they are so high in mag + calc. I also had about 1/3 teaspoon of milo in my hot milk maybe once a day in the 2ww. It's super high in mag and calc, so thought as far as cheating went, this was an ok one!

Caffeine : None.

Dh Caffeine : None.

HORMONES

Drinks : Peppermint tea once a day(mostly - YUK!!). Had equal in all of my drinks. Drank heaps of sprite zero.

Dh : Licorice root from af to O, 3x a day. Had equal in all drinks. Some caff. free diet coke. Drank heaps of sprite zero.

SUPPS

Cranberry : I took roughly between 20000-30000 per day.

Acidophilus : Nope

Sudafed : Yep, about 40 mins before dtd.

Others : I also took 500 mg vit c per day.

Dh supps : Dh also took about 20000mg of cranberry per day, 500 mg vit c, licorice root, reccomended calc & mag.

TIMING

Bed cutoff (#of days) : No

Bed through O : No

0+12 : Yes, was probably more like 0+8/9. After all my lime and acijel I used to lower combined ph after dtd, I started to panic, so checked heaps of the 'stuff' under a microscope. ALL OF THEM WERE DEAD!! I checked about 6 times, and I really scooped it out (Sorry for tmi!).I did not see one swimmer actually swimming! I told dh we would have to do it again, which I know is not reccomended, but I was gettign despersate being on this diet, and didn't want another month to pass me by! So, I got dh to release into a cup, and I put some lime in it to lower the ph down to high4's, and I inserted it. I then used some acijel afterwards to keep ph lower. My ph kept creeping up which worried me, but it sat around high 4's, occasionally going into low 5's..

Frequent Bdding : No, dh abstained for 3 weeks, and wasn't he fun to live with!!

Charting O with temp : sometimes, but I am up so frequently during the night that it is innaccurate.

Chartin O with opk : Yes, I usuallly did 3 or 4 a day, to catch the surge ($$$$$!!)

Fertility monitor : Ovacue with v. sensor

Suspected O date : Friday 23/9/11

IONS

Oed in what moon phase : According to Willy Weather.com.au (what a fitting name),  it was a waning crescent moon.

Changed ions in other ways : Plenty of showers, 4 salt lamps around house, used lavendar body lotion and wash with lavendar oil in it, burnt lavendar essential oil when I remembered (I had to be careful with this because I have a tendancy to forget that these things are burning-I've had one explode on me before because I forgot about it, so was a bit wary!), spent time outside in the breeze when the boys were outside, used aerosols, had an ioniser in the car, wore 2 neg ion bracelets, one rose quartz bracelet.... I think this is all..

OTHER

How many kids do you have : 3

Gender(s) : Boys (twins +1)

#months ttc : 3

Your age : 34

Bd position : Missionary, nothing too exciting!

Jump and dump : No, layed with hips propped for an hour or two. Did j&d with ds#3, so wasn't too worried about not doing it !

Ewcm present, how much : No, I had HEAPS this cycle leading up to O, but my cm was creamy and sticky at time of dtd. On our last two attempts, my cm was super thick and white, so I think we were leaving it too long after ovulation to dtd.

Dh undies : Tighty Whitey's

Dh hot bath/shower : Yes, hot shower before each attempt. He focused the heat on his 'boys'. I also had a hot shower before eacha attempt for the neg ions, and heat also lowers ph...

OWT : Wooden spoon with pink ribbon under bed, little outfit under there too! I forgot, I also bought a 'girl spell' off ebay!

COMMENTS : Firstly, I apologise if this format comes out funny, the template wouldn;t copy and paste properly so I had to type it all out..!

I know it is early to post my attempt, but I wanted to before I forgot it. Not that I think that would ever happen, the last 4 months are burnt into my memory I think !

Both dh and I gave everything we could to our sway. It was sooooo hard, especially with 3 little boys. Watching them eat yummy food, while I was eating cucumber and green beans, or broiled salmon was really tough. As was trying to dtd in the afternoon (when it was 0+12) with 3 kids running around !! Hopefully we will be welcoming a pink bundle, but if not then that's ok too. If a blue one got through all that lime, acijel, cranberry, and equal, then he has fought for his place in this family!!

I wish all you ladies the best of luck in your sways, and hope you all get your desired gender. I am very grateful for all of your support and info over the past few months. Tamara, thanks for all your knowledge you share with us, and for answering all of our questions, no matter how silly( I know I've asked my fair share), your help is very much appreciated! Hearts

I forgot to ask, what is that 1ml lime, did you simply insert it as opposed to douching? Thanks in advance.

Thanks girls!!

Hey Nini, I made up the douche mix before dtd (which was one part lime to one part distilled water) just in case I needed it afterwards, which I did. So when my ph was up a bit I just sucked up a ml in a syringe and sat it in a cup of hot water for a minute or so. I checked the temp of it and it was maybe just under body temp, so I inserted it.

I did this afterwards, but decided not to douche before hand this time, because my ph was mid 4's anyway. With my last attempt my ph was around 4.2-3 before dtd, and I went ahead and douched before anyway. I also put 1ml in after our attempt, and my ph sat around 3.5 the whole time, which I think was just too low...

I love this line, threewillys, how true!!! LOL! Great sway, I believe there's a pink bundle of joy in there...or a very hard working blue one.

Everything with men seems to revolve around what is dangling between their legs !! But you're right, he did survive, but only just!
