Any Old Wives Tales to having a girl?
sdadkin posted:
Not sure if I believe in old wive's tales or not, but we have two little boys and I really want to try for a girl! I am still on the fence about having a third because I think it will probably be another boy and I don't know if I can handle 3 boys! Lol. My SO has been talking a lot lately about wanting another baby. We had agreed to try again when our oldest is in school and we don't have to pay for daycare for him anymore. He will be 4 next month so he starts school in a year. Our youngest just turned 2.

Has anyone tried any old wives tales and had them work for a girl? I'm really curious. Like I said, I'm not sure if I believe or not but it's sure worth a try!

I've heard that while the "boy" sperm are faster, the "girl" sperm live longer so if you want a girl, have sex 2-3 days before your ovulate so that by the time you do ovulate, only the "girl" sperm will be around.
