Natural Gender Selection Book?

So DH, DD and I were over at some friends' house on Saturday night and the topic came up about having a second baby. (Their DS is 8 weeks older than our DD so we were preggo buddies the first time around) She mentioned that she had just bought this book called Prince or Princess and it as about different factors when TTC to determine the gender of the baby. I guess it goes into habits for the mother as far as diet and activities and then also goes into actually DTD itself like times. technique and even positions. Hmmmm...

So have any of you heard of this? Do you really believe in the ability to determine the gender of your baby and would you/have you used methods like this?

I am still on the fence about it. My DH and I would really love to have a baby boy the next time around and I will probably read the book and might even try some of the recommendations for having a boy. However, I believe in God's will for my life and the lives of my family and I know that whatever He chooses for us is what we will have. I can do whatever I think will give me a boy but I know it really isn't up to me or my DH no matter what I eat, where, how and when we DTD and all that stuff.

Anyhoo...this was the first I had ever heard of this sort of thing and thought it might be an interesting thing to share on here and discuss a little bit.

I have heard things like old wives tales, but nothing as specefic as the book you mentioned, I always thought it was the man's chromosomes or whatever that determined the sex? I would be curious to hear more about the book when you read it.

I guess the lady who wrote the book has done a lot of research and studies about the things she outlines in the book and from reading the summary on her website it's really thorough. It sounds like she has actually researched into the differences in the actual sperm that carry either the X or Y chromosome and ways to make your body and womb a more hospitable environment for the chromosome you want to conceive with. It sounds logical enough I suppose.

The website about it is: www.planmybaby.com

I heard of this too and my sister's babysitter got that book and swears because of it they are having a boy! I don't know it might just be luck. They had 2 girls already.
