How To Get Pregnant With A Girl

Welcome to my how to get pregnant with a girl article. This is the sister page to my how to get pregnant with a boy page.

There are many reasons why potential parents are trying to get pregnant with a girl and there are things that you can do to potentially influence the outcome. The purpose of this article is to high-light three tips that you can think about as a means to achieving your goal.

Obviously, I cannot give any guarantees, but I know some moms that have introduced these ideas, with very pleasing results. What I can say is that I have undertaken considerable research in this field and do aim to lead you in the right direction should you need additional information.

How to get Pregnant with a Girl – 3 Essential Tips

It’s That Time of the Month

In order to increase your chances of having a baby girl, you need to understand your ovulation cycle. I would recommend the following course of action :

    • Monitor your ovulation cycle during 100 days (I call it my Century to Success Formula)

  • Is your cycle is regular ? (it might not be)
  • Use my suggested Clearblue Ovulation Test. This can be bought from Amazon.com
  • Use an ovulation calculator. Try this one : www.ovulation-calendar.net
  • The female X chromosome sperm lives longer than the male Y chromosome. Therefore to give yourself the best chance of conceiving a girl it is recommended to have sex no closer than 4 days before ovulation (meaning the chances are the male sperm would have died, leaving the female sperm left to fertilize the egg after it is released into the fallopian tube some 5 days after love making).
  • The most important thing in this process is to cease making love for another 7 days.

The above may seem a simple process to adopt, but it can be very effective.

Best position to get pregnant with a girl

Male sperm die quicker than female sperm. Therefore logic says that you need to ease off a bit during love making, relying on a more shallow penetration method, rather than deep penetration, which would favour male sperm getting to the egg before dying.

Eating : The Key to Life

There is a famous phrase “you are what you eat”, basically meaning that your body is the sum total of what you ingest. This is also true for influencing the chances of conceiving a boy, or a girl. Basically, you are looking to stack those odds in the gender of your choice (in this case a girl).

Of course, it is important to eat a balanced diet, but if you are trying to get pregnant with a girl, then consider having more magnesium and calcium enriched diet – and less foods containing potassium and sodium (which favour males births). The thing to remember is that you need to start your dietary changes two months before trying to get pregnant. The following food groups apply to both the potential mom AND dad.

Magnesium :

  • Fish : Halibut / Tuna
  • Fruits : Dried figs / Banana
  • Grains : Barley / Oat Bran / Brown rice
  • Juices : Prune juice
  • Dairy : Milk / Low-fat Yogurt
  • Vegetables : Artichokes / All types of beans / Spinach / Pumpkin Seeds / Soybeans
  • Nuts : Brazils / Cashews / Pine nuts / Almonds

You need to be aware that an excess of magnesium can cause upset stomachs.

Calcium :

  • Fish : Sardines in oil
  • Fruits : Oranges
  • Grains : Ready to eat cereals / Cornmill / White wheat flour
  • Juices : Anything with a dairy product in it (see below)
  • Diary : Any Milk / Cheeses / yogurts
  • Vegetables : Collards / Spinach / Potatoes / Cowpeas
  • Nuts : Brazil nuts

Again I repeat that it is, of course, important to get a balanced diet before and during pregnancy. If you are in any doubts, then you should consult your doctor.

Some of you may have heard of the Shettles Method. This was designed in the 1960’s and was based on some of what I have mentioned above.

The above tips are meant to serve as an introduction to helping parents. If you want to take your gender selection seriously, or want to go to ‘the next level’, with a professional pregnancy program, then there are three resources on how to conceive a baby girl, which I’m happy to recommend below.

Further Resources

There are three downloadable books that I have reviewed for moms trying to get pregnant with a girl. To varying degrees, they have also all come with high recommendation from people in support groups I’ve been involved with.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To make life a lot easier, I have actually also done a ‘quick glance’ comparison table, in an article where I also reviewed the Shettles Method official book, called How to Choose the Sex of Your Baby <Review COMING SOON>.

Whatever you do, please consider a structured program of events found in one of the above publications – rather than just surfing the net aimlessly hoping for ‘that golden tip which will change everything’. Unfortunately, you won’t find it out there. You need to be professional in your approach.

How To Get Pregnant With A Boy – 5 Tips For Success

Thank you for viewing my starter tips page on how to get pregnant with a boy. This is the sister (okay brother) page to my how to get pregnant with a girl page.

Of course, most prospective parents are more than happy to leave the sex of their child to chance and would not even consider trying to influence the decision. However, I know that in some cases there is a real yearning for a little ‘James’ as opposed to a little ‘Jane’. Trying to get pregnant with a boy

There are many families throughout the world trying to give birth to males, for many different reasons. Some say that they feel safer bringing up a male in today’s rough and tumble world, whilst in certain areas of the world baby boys are preferred to preserve family names or because they is a need to maintain family businesses.

There might also be a need to avoid having a girl to avoid a disease that might only run in the girl line. Or maybe you already have a couple of boys and want to balance out your family.

Whatever your reason for trying to get pregnant with a boy, I hope this page is the start of a journey, which will ultimately lead you to the success you crave.

My Search for the Truth

Whilst researching this topic, it did not take me long to realise that there is, unfortunately, quite a lot of poorly written material on the internet – based mainly on old wives tales and very little information based on scientific fact. In fact, How to conceive a boy - close up picture of bookarticles on the subject were big in number, but little in substance.

I then turned to Amazon.com and was disappointed to see just two available books on how to give birth to a boy – one of which had been written as far back as 1995 and had received very poor ratings, the other had received better ratings, but again had been published six years ago – time moves quickly in the medical world.

Through a support group set up for moms who were trying to get pregnant, I found out about two resources, which had generated quite a bit of interest and had reported success (more about those later).

Can You Really Influence the Gender of Your Child ?

Well it would certainly appear so. Clearly, I would be in breach of copy-write if I laid out here word-for-word what the books revealed.

However, I can give you some useful safe starter tips, to set you on the right track in getting pregnant with a boy.

How To Get Pregnant With A Boy – 5 Starter Tips

Okay, let’s get straight into it with some tips that will help you focus the mind and, hopefully, increase your understanding about trying to get pregnant with a boy.

Tip No. 1 – What Goes In Influences What Comes Out

For moms that are wondering how to conceive a boy, one of the first things you must consider is what you ingest. This is relevant both before and during conception and is vital not only your own health, but also the health of your baby.

It goes without saying (even though I’m about to say it), that you should avoid smoking and drinking of alcohol at this time, and also cut down on processed foods. You want things to be as natural as possible and that includes natural foods.

However, to give a helping hand to nature in trying to give birth to a boy, you will want to eat foods containing potassium and sodium for at least a month prior to trying to conceive – giving time for absorption into the body.

The recommended intake of potassium is 3.5gms daily and you want to be mindful of this as you don’t want to over-do it.

Consider food / meals containing :

  • Fish : tuna and salmon
  • Meat
  • Beans
  • Dried herbs
  • Dried apricots, raisins, Dates and prunes
  • Avocados
  • Seeds: Pumpkin, sunflower, and flax
  • Chocolate (every woman’s dream !!)

As mentioned previously, Sodium is another mineral that you need to be mindful of. Again, there are no shortage of foods which contain this – a selection of which include :

  • Meat : Bacon, ham, corn beef, luncheon meats
  • Fish : anchovies, smoked salmon,
  • Cheese
  • Products containing tomatoes e.g. tomato sauces & soups
  • Olives
  • Broccoli, mushrooms and lentils Lima beans

There are many web-sites on-line where you can find recipes which complement the above ingredients – one of the best is www.allrecipes.com/Search/Ingredients.aspx. All you have to do is add some of the above ingredients in the boxes and hit search and you will be presented with recipes.

Of course it is important to have a mixed and varied diet whether you are trying to get pregnant with a boy or are currently in pregnancy. And when in doubt you should always seek the advice of your doctor.

Tip No. 2 – It’s That Time of the Month

In order to increase your chances of giving birth to a boy, you need to understand your ovulation cycle. I would recommend the following course of action :

  • Check and test your ovulation dates over 100 days (covering just over 3 months)
  • Ensure that the cycle is consistent
  • Use our recommended Clearblue Ovulation Test, which can be purchased at Amazon.com
  • Use an on-line ovulation calculator, such as that found at www.ovulation-calendar.net

So, what’s the purpose of that ? Well, the male Y chromosome carrying sperm dies quickly. Therefore to give yourself the best chance of conceiving a boy it is important to have sex one day prior to ovulation and then during ovulation. That’s why you need to keep a record of what’s happening inside of you.

Tip No. 3 – One For the Guys

The potential father has an important role to play in the successful conception of a boy as well. He needs to ensure that his sperm count is as high as possible (this increases the chances of having a little boy). That means keeping the testicles as cool as possible – so no tight fitting underwear and no hot baths just prior to intercourse.

Tip No. 4 – Best Position to Get Pregnant With A Boy

There is some debate as to whether this next tip works, or not. However the science does seem to back this up. As mentioned above, the male sperm die quicker than the female sperm. It therefore stands to reason that the deeper the penetration during sex, the  more of a head start you can give the sperm and, it follows, the more of a chance that more male ones will still be alive at ovulation.

One of the books I mention below (Plan My Baby) does go into graphic detail regarding the best positions to have sex.

Shettles Method

Some of you might recognize that much of what I have described above is based on the work done by Landrum B Shettles in the 1960’s (called the Shettles method), and this has helped many wannabe moms in the past 40+ years.

For updated information, I highly recommend two outstanding home-courses……………….

Tip No. 5 – Further Resources

The above tips are meant to serve as an introduction to helping parents, but just working with those alone might not be enough to guarantee that you will conceive a boy. As mentioned previously, moms in the support group had viewed a variety of ‘how to get pregnant with a boy’ type of material. The two most popular are listed below and are both highly recommended.

Plan My Baby (Prince or Princess)

This is a course by Alicia Pennington, which looks at ways to conceive a boy or a girl – it comes with some nice little bonuses and has medical profession backing.

How to get Pregnant with a Boy

This is a course by Penny Brown, which focuses on advice for those just trying to get pregnant with a boy. Again, there are some relevent bonuses books that come with the main guide.

I’m not a believer in trying to force any particular product on anyone and I always try to provide alternatives. All I would say that if you are serious about trying to get pregnant with a particular gender of baby then you do need to read something like the recommendations I have high-lighted below. Otherwise you could be leaving it to chance.

I have reviewed both of these courses at the following links. Alternatively, you might just want to go straight through to the official websites by clicking on the books below.

Top 10 Tips for Conceiving

On the internet there is a multitude of information for women who are trying to conceive. How to get pregnant tips are not in short supply, but unfortunately some of the information is a bit dubious to say the least. Many of these people claim to be able to show you “How to have a quick pregnancy” or “How to get pregnant fast”.

What you need to know is how to have a SAFE and SUCCESSFUL pregnancy. If you set your own body up correctly, then you will conceive WHEN your body is ready. If you have been unable to conceive it is only because your body does not think that it is fit and ready. It really is that simple. Pregnancy and health really do go hand in hand.

What I have put together is a site based on my own experiences of trying to get pregnant and you are welcome to read my story on my ‘About me’ page.

What I plan to do in this article, is to provide a summary of what’s available elsewhere on this site.

Clearly, by landing on this page you are looking for some conceiving tips and it maybe that you are specifically looking for some tips for conceiving a baby boy, or indeed some tips for conceiving a baby girl. Click on either of those links which will provide you with a lot more information regarding specific gender selection.

If you’re still with me, then I shall assume that you are looking for more generic tips for conceiving. Maybe you’ve been trying to get pregnant for a little while (it took me years to finally fall pregnant). If so, then the good news is that in most cases of women struggling to get pregnant they can easily overcome their issues with a few simple life-style changes

1.) Quit smoking 2 months before trying to get pregnant

Whilst women appreciate the need to stop smoking as soon as they find out they are pregnant, most don’t realise that the chemicals in the cigarettes themselves can be a major cause of them failing to get pregnant. Get your partner to quit as well, as the chemicals inside tobacco can reduce sperm count. Click on the image to try the Smoke Away system.

2.) Eat healthy, before, during and after pregnancy

So many women see pregnancy as an excuse to eat anything and everything. This is so wrong. Treat your attempt to get pregnant as if you were about to take part in a marathon (which, in a way, it is). You wouldn’t rock up to the start line of a marathon without having eaten the correct foods for weeks in advance. The same should be true before you attempt to get pregnant. Lower your carbs and your fat intake for two to three months before. These can play havoc with your insulin levels and hormone secretion which can severely dent your chances of getting pregnant.

3.) Exercise – But don’t over-do it

Right there really has to be a line drawn with this one. Using my marathon analogy again, you wouldn’t even dream to be on the start line having done no training to ensure that your body was ‘fit for purpose’. The same should be the case for getting your body in shape for conception. You want all systems as fit as possible (especially if you have been struggling to conceive).

Having said that, you don’t want to throw yourself into daily triathlons as this will put too much stress on your body. And too much stress = A struggle to conceive.

4.) Get to know your monthly cycle – and record it

This is so crucial, but women really don’t pay enough attention to it. You MUST monitor for three to six months before you consider getting pregnant to get a real good indication if you are regular or have issues with irregular ovulation (which can be a good sign of potential infertility issues). You must chart it using a Basal Thermometer.

5.) Do not wait to get pregnant

I fully appreciate that we are living in a different world to when our parents (or certainly our grandparents) were starting families. In today’s opulent world people demand to go on foreign holidays, they demand the latest 42” TV, they demand mobile electronics etc. etc., but these all have to be paid for.

All over the western world, the economy is not what it was and people are struggling to maintain the life-styles they have become accustomed. This has resulted in family’s being started later and later, as wannabe parents strive to pay off debts before they bring children into the world.

Now I would never want to encourage parents to bring any child into the world if they haven’t got the finances to be able to afford to feed, cloth, and home the little one. However, do not take for granted that you will just be able to pop the kids out at will after the age of 35. You may see news stories of women in their 60’s giving birth, but it certainly get more difficult the older you get – as I know from bitter experience.

6.) Start simple before going professional

In my 100 Tips For Getting Pregnant, I actually devote two whole articles (20 tips) to getting outside help : Tips for getting pregnant – Part 8.  and Tips for getting pregnant – Part 9. So clearly there is a great deal to be said for external help.

However, treatments can be expensive and they are certainly very stressful. There is nothing worse than feeling overwhelm and confused at the treatments available. Then the stress of getting an appointment. Then even more stress having to go through treatment. Then even more stress waiting for the results. To be honest, I honestly believe that in some cases the stress levels being created by the potential treatment far out-weigh the benefit of the actual treatment.

To my advice is to keep it simple. Do the things that you can influence (eating correctly, exercise, stopping smoking, drinking, recreational drugs etc.) and ONLY if they don’t work, then look at the professional treatments.

7.) Lubricants are a no, no

Whilst you can get sperm friendly lubricants, generally I advise to stay away from them (and that includes water and saliva). They really do your man’s swimmers no good whatsoever.

8.) Yoga

This is so under rated as a form of exercise. It has a bit of everything for me. The problem is that many people struggle to ‘get going’ with yoga, because they fine it ‘a bit boring’ or ‘uncomfortable’ having to get into ‘awkward positions’. Stick with it, the benefits are amazing. My recommended resource is here : YOGA : Before, During & After Pregnancy.

9.) Read ALL medicine instructions

It really baffles me the amount of people (male as well as female) that take over the counter medicines routinely and fail to see the relevance that some of these ‘cures’ have on their failure to get pregnant.

Read all of the medicine instructions. I appreciate that you might need a medical encyclopaedia to understand what on earth they are going on about, but if you have to then speak to your doctor and ask him or her if you are reducing your chances of getting pregnant with that simple cough syrup.

10.) Have a plan – AND STICK TO IT

If you are struggling to get pregnant, then this for me is the most crucial element of the lot. Before I started working on a plan which, ultimately, saw me give birth to a beautiful daughter, I was seriously guilty of jumping from one idea to another – ready to grab the latest piece of worthless advice from one web site or another.

Where can I find more tips about conceiving ?

Unfortunately, I read too many people’s ‘Best infertility Tips’, ’50 Trying to Conceive Tips’, ’37 Tips on Getting Pregnant’ (why 37 !!!), and even ‘Secret Tips for getting pregnant your Mom Never Told you About’ (Secret probably because they were rubbish) – yes, I’ve read them all.

The problem was I didn’t actually focus on, or following through with any, of it – Too much information, I guess. That is why I now ALWAYS recommend a professional pregnancy program, rather than just surfing the net randomly for information. If you are doing that, then PLEASE STOP THAT NOW.

Seriously, you will find yourself still surfing for the little miracle 6 months down the line and no nearer to getting pregnant.

With that in mind, then I’m happy to tell you ‘my little secret’. My number one choice recommendation is always “The Full EmbraceTM Pregnancy Success Program” by Diana Farrell, M.A. The reason I love this so much is that it is actually a program that you can follow step-by-step, day-by-day.

If you want to read  my own review of Diana’s pregnancy course, then click on the following link : Maria Anderson’s review of the pregnancy Success Program.

Need Help Getting Pregnant ?

This is one of a number of articles on this site designed to give wannabe moms as much assistance as possible in a bid to help them get pregnant

Many women try to plan their sex around their menstrual cycle. Unfortunately, many women who are trying to get pregnant are doing it completely wrong.

This article will focus the mind and provide tips on when best time to conceive is………….

To get pregnant quickly, you really need to take this part of your family planning very seriously. If you don’t take this seriously, then you can actually do great harm to your chances of ever falling pregnant.

You don’t ovulate on the 14th day of my menstrual cycle

It is commonly thought that women ovulate on the 14th day of their menstrual cycle. That is purely the AVERAGE for the women of the world. So you are quite likely to ovulate on another day. It’s like the average body temperature whilst resting is 98.7 degrees. Many people fluctuate just off this figure.

But you CAN work it out

If it’s not going to be the 14th day for you, you can still easily work it out. However, many women do not ovulate in a regular pattern. If you can calculate these patterns, or look for other signs, then you are well on your way to getting pregnant a lot easier and a lot quicker.

First : Identify the signs of your menstruation cycle

  • Identifying the signs of your menstrual cycle is crucial if you want to achieve success.
  • The first part of your cycle will be the bleeding. But don’t discount the secondary signs at this stage, such as headaches and cramping
  • From here you will need to take your body temperature using a Basal Digital Thermometer
  • Make sure you take this first thing in the morning, before you eat or drink and before you even get out of bed.
  • Do not drink alcohol the night before as this could affect the reading 9even the following morning)
  • Your body temperature will rise on the day that you ovulate 0.5-1.0 degree Fahrenheit, due to the hormone progesterone.

A thick white vaginal mucous is another sign that you are about to ovulate. At this point, also expect an increased sex drive, bloating or cramping as secondary indicators.

Secondly : Track the signs

Once you have identified the signs of ovulation, then it is time to track them. This will ensure greater accuracy further down the line and it will also hi-light any irregular patterns. A simple chart or spread-sheet will suffice for the recording. Ideally you want to plot the results on a graph, so you can spot the fluctuations immediately.

  • Each day write down your basal body temperature
  • Note also the secondary signs (mentioned in step 1)
  • Look out for the immediate spike in temperature, which should follow your vaginal mucus turning white
  • Then you would have just ovulated

Thirdly : Notice regular patterns

You will need to track a minimum of two cycles (ideally more) to have a good indication of how your body operates. So these methods won’t guarantee a quick pregnancy.  However, armed with this information, it is going to make your sexual planning so much easier and your chances of conception will soar as well.

Remember, this timing is not just about your body. Your partner’s sperm only have a very short shelf-life as well, so timing has to be perfect.

Summary

Poor timing is actually one of the main reasons that women are unable to conceive. This part of family planning is so often over-looked, or just merely taken for granted.

  • Take this seriously
  • Accept your body’s limitations
  • It doesn’t run perfectly
  • You will need to track your menstrual cycle

If you do all of the above, you will have climbed the first rung of the ladder.

There are plenty more articles on this site to help you closer to conceiving a child. In addition, there are some product reviews for families that are really having difficulties and need to follow a holistic approach of planned eating, stress reduction, sexual positions, and exercise.

I wish you well in your quest to get pregnant.

How to Conceive a Baby Safely

First and foremost, whilst many of you will be looking to get pregnant fast, you will also want to have a safe pregnancy.

Do

  • Eat a healthy diet of fruit, vegetables, fiber and drink plenty of water
  • Consider taking additional vitamins and minerals
  • Accurately monitor your menstrual cycle to choose the optimum time to have sex
  • Consult your doctor regarding any prescription drugs that you are taking – could these hamper getting pregnant ?
  • Exercise and keep fit – You must have a healthy blood-flow circulating through your veins
  • Keep your stress levels to a minimum
  • Consider the possibility that any failure to conceive a baby up until this point might be as a result of your partner’s infertility

Don’t

    • Smoke Cigarettes
    • Drink alcohol
    • Take any recreational drugs
    • Enagae in any activity that is going to put undue stress to your mind or your body as this will have an impact on your chances of conceiving

How to Conceive a Boy

There a many reasons you might want to conceive a boy. It might be for cultural reasons, or if a disease runs in the female side of your family your preference might be to have a baby boy to reduce or eliminate such risks.

The good news is that you can influence the gender of you baby, before you have even conceived it, by what you eat and a few other technical tweaks to your life-style.

It is the Y chromosome in the sperm which results in you having a baby boy and the X chromosome which delivers a baby girl, and there are certain characteristics different in each type. Because we know this for a fact, it means that we can influence our behaviour and, with a certain degree of accuracy, go on to influence our results.

Being smaller in size, but more nimble, the Y (male) sperm can get to the egg faster. There is a downside however, in that they tend to die off quicker than the X (female) sperm and also struggle with the female’s PH balance. So what can we do to assist the little male sperm ?

Top Tips to Conceive a Boy

  • Adjust your PH level, by having a more alkaline diet.
  • Consume foods that are high in sodium and potassium.
  • Think of eating foods such as red meat and bananas (although not together of course, as the recipe will be a disaster !!).
  • Have sex as close to ovulation as possible (you will obviously need an ovulation calculator for this). This will help the sperm reach the egg at the optimum time… and whilst they are still alive.
  • Look for deep penetration when having sex. This one may sound like an old wives tale, but it makes sense. Remember the male sperm don’t live that long, so get them as close to the egg to start with and you have a better chance when trying to conceive a boy.
  • Try to orgasm before your man ejaculates (my personal favourite). Yes, this can have an influence because the juices secreted in a woman’s orgasm actually make the environment more alkaline (male sperm friendly).

If you don’t want to leave things to chance, there are two excellent books I would highly recommend. However, I’m not going to force either of them down your throat, I will let you decide which is the most appropriate for your needs. Please click on either book to find out more information.

I have done a personal review of the Plan My Baby (Prince or Princess) course, which can be found at the following link :

How to Conceive a Girl

Just as there are reasons you might want to conceive a boy, the same can be said for parents that are looking to have a little girl. Maybe you already have a couple of boys and want to give yourself the best chance of having a little girl the next time round ? Maybe it is a male hereditary disease that you are trying to avoid ?

Either way, the potential solution is pretty much the opposite of the tips I gave in how to conceive a boy.

Top Tips to Conceive a Girl

So female sperm are slower than their male counterparts and also prefer an acidic environment. With that in mind :-

  • Concentrate on getting the following minerals : magnesium and calcium.
  • Eat foods such as dairy products, fish (must not contain mercury though), and broccoli.
  • Time your sex for two or three days prior to ovulation. This means that only the female sperm are likely to still be alive come the time of ovulation.
  • Shallow penetration sex is best when trying to conceive a girl. Remember, this will mean that the male sperm have to swim further and, in all likelihood will not survive the journey.
  • If you can hold off orgasm, then the resultant environment, in your cervix,  will be more hostile to the male sperm and will give the X chromosome (female) sperm more of a chance in reaching the egg first.

Of course, at the end of the day, the most important thing is that the baby is healthy and to achieve this then you really should ensure that you lead a healthy life-style both before and during pregnancy. If you are in any doubts you should consult your doctor.

Again, there are two options, I would highly recommend, if you are really serious about trying to conceive a girl. Please click on the image to visit the official websites, or my links below the images if you would rather read a review of the courses first.
