X (the female sperm) and Y (the male sperm) to live. Here is what they say you can to to make home for a boy or girl!
Location, location, location!
The sexual position you use to get pregnant may be the deciding factor in whether your having a boy or a
girl. Deeper penetrating positions are said to produce a boy, where as shallow penetrating position can produce a baby girl. This has to do with the skills of the X and Y sperm. Y sperm swims the fastest but is very weak and, the X sperm is slower but much stronger. Suggested sex position for achieving a boy, doggy style. Suggested sex position for achieving a girl, missionary (with shallow penetration).
Timing Can be Key:
If your hoping to make a baby boy, you should plan to have sex 1 day before, or on the day of ovulation. If you are hoping to make a baby girl, you should plan to have sex 3-4 day's before ovulation. Why is this so? Sperm can live 4-5 days inside a female. Since the Y sperm will die far before the X, planning intercourse earlier than ovulation is key for having a girl, and right on time is key for having a boy. The most accurate way to predict ovulation is an ovulation test.
Great Balls of Fire!
According to the Shettles Method, having high scrotum temperature can kill the Y sperm, increasing your chances of having a girl. So, if you want a boy, avoid getting hot balls. If you want a girl, have your guy take a nice hot bath before intercourse.
Eating for a Desired Gender:
The PH balance in the female can also play a deciding factor in whether you are to have a boy or girl.
The Y sperm prefer a alkaline environment. Therefore to produce a boy you should be eating foods such as: Meat (the redder the better), Salty Snacks, Nuts, basically any foods that are high in Sodium or Potassium.
The X sperm prefer a acidic environment. Eating foods such as fish, fruits, veggies and chocolate. Foods that are rich in Calcium and Magnesium are ideal for producing a girl.
To Orgasm or not to Orgasm?
A female orgasm can produce a alkaline ph in the women's body producing an environment that is ideal for the male sperm to thrive. Therefore if you are looking to make a baby girl, you should not orgasm. This will keep the environment acidic.
