    Lightbulb some fun!

    Anyone wanting to have a fun/funny chat about gender?

    Anyone heard any good old wives' tales about conceiving a specific gender? Anyone trying any of them?

    I have a book all about this. We read it before TTC our DD. We were going to try to get a boy, based on timing, but it took us 15 cycles to get pg, so by then we just wanted anything. LOL!

    Supposedly if you DTD a few days before O you have a greater chance of getting a girl, and if you DTD as close to O as possible you have a better chance of getting a boy. This is because the boy sperm swim faster, but the girl sperm live longer.

    Yes, that's exactly right. The boy sperm swim super fast and get to the egg quickly, so if the egg is sitting there waiting for them, they will often make it first. Because the girls are slower, they arrive to the party later. If the egg wasn't there when the boys arrived, they'll often die out before the egg arrives. Then the girls either arrive when the egg is there or else the egg arrives while they're chilling. The book also had some details about the PH of your CM killing some of them off. The boy sperm are much more fragile than the girls.
