    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    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!

    If you want a girl...

    Both partners should eat lots of fish and veggies. Give in to your chocolate craving, or just eat sweets in general.

    If you want a girl...

    Give the missionary position a go. Make love with the woman on top. Focus on her pleasure — if the woman orgasms before her partner, you can decorate your nursery in pink. Take the lead — if the woman initiates sex, you'll get a girl.

    GOOD LUCK!!!!!
