Would You Try to Influence Your Baby's Sex?

Would You Try to Influence Your Baby's Sex?

Having given birth to a little girl, I am constantly asked if I am hoping that my current pregnancy results in a baby boy. Honestly, I just want a healthy baby, but if I did want to “push nature” to give me a boy, there are several old wives' tales I could have engaged in to try to choose my baby’s gender.

One theory states that the vagina is less acidic when it is closer to the cervix, so having sex with the woman on top or the man behind will lead to a boy.

Others say that male sperm struggle more than female sperm in acid, so douching prior to sex, which reduces acidity, will lead to a baby boy.

According to Dr. Landrum Shettles, diet and timing influence the sex of a baby. To have a boy, a woman’s diet should be high in sodium and potassium and she should attempt to conceive one day before and up to one-half day after ovulation. For a girl, a woman should eat foods high in calcium and magnesium and have sex no later than two to three days prior to ovulation.

Would you give any of these wives' tales a whirl?
