    Default Which Day?

    So DH and I are trying for a girl. I read in the book taking charge of your fertility and also from my Dr that you should dtd 3/4 days before O. So I usually O on CD 15 that would be on Wed Sept 26. When would you stop then the sat or sunday before? We were 5 & 4 days from o last cycle and got a BFN so I want to be 4 & 3 this one. Can you see my chart? What days would be best.

    Does anyone else have tips on trying to have a little girl? My ob also said there was a wives tale about baking soda douches before dtd but dont know if I want to go there.

    Don't stress or you could delay O but yes, Sat. & Sun. The thing about gender selection, especially when trying for a girl, is it could make you wait several more cycles than people just trying to get pregnant with any gender. Are you willing to wait longer? It's only a 20% chance of conception even when you do everything right. So just some food for thought....good luck!!

    Thats the thing my OB said it may take longer trying this way or what we are trying may not work, which is what he said happened to him and his wife and now they have 2 boys. I also have two boys and get pregnant usually very quickly when we got pregnant with them and also a m/c I had in between them.

    I chart my temp and my cycles have been pretty reg so I guess I will give this method a chance and if its not working we will just go back to dtd right up until O day.

    personally i would just start every other day as soon as AF sends, it would suck if this month you ovulate earlier and miss your chance
