How to Get Pregnant With a Girl Baby
By Sandy Dean
If you've found this article, I have to assume that you're trying to get pregnant and that you'd strongly prefer to conceive a girl baby rather than a baby boy. You probably suspect (or are at least researching) that there are natural, inexpensive ways that you can do this at home, without expensive medical intervention. This article will outline tips and advice that you will help you achieve this goal and will explain why these things work, (and how they work best.)
Understanding Baby Girl Producing Sperm: First, I want to briefly go into how conception (with either gender) happens and how you can use some of the characteristics of the different sperm chromosomes to your advantage. The father-to-be's sperm contains X (girl) and Y (boy) producing chromosomes. Only one of these will be the first to fertilize the egg. If a Y wins, you get a boy and the opposite is true if the X does the job. In this trip to the egg, the boy sperm are by far the fastest, but also by far the weakest. They are seriously weakened and compromised by time and by your vaginal tract (and by the environment that they will encounter once there.)
Likewise, although the girl producing sperm are slow, they are by far the stronger of the two. Time and your vaginal PH do not affect them nearly as much. You can use this to your great advantage when it is time to conceive. I will outline how to do this below.
Timing For A Baby Girl Conception: So, now we know that time is on our side if we're trying to conceive a girl. It makes sense then to use this to your full advantage. The girl sperm can live for several days in your vaginal tract, but the boy can not. So, you should conceive 3 - 4 days before you will ovulate.
This sounds so easy, but this is where many women will miscalculate. So many women assume that they ovulate half way between their menstrual cycle and are wrong about this. Or, they will use methods taught to them by their mothers (basal temperature, cervical mucus, the rhythm method, etc.) without realizing that technology has given us much more reliable ways to know exactly when we can become pregnant.
I'm talking about ovulation predictors that take the guess work out of this equation. There are two kinds - saliva and urine. I've used both with success, but I much prefer the saliva kind as I believe they are more reliable and are able to give you more advanced notice. I like that they are reusable and that you can use them at any time during the day and not just first thing in the morning as is the case with urine (and urine predictors also give you only one chance per day.)
The Correct Sexual Positions If You Want A Female Baby: So, we've talked about the trip that the sperm take to the egg and how we need to make this longer to weed out the boy sperm. One way that we do this (as we discussed above) is timing our conception in the early part of the fertility window. Another easy way to do this is by using sexual positions that place the sperm far away from the cervix. This is achieved through shallow penetration (missionary style, spooning, etc.) And, this gives the boy sperm a long trip that is hard for them to survive.
Why A High PH Is Necessary If You Want A Daughter: Speaking of that long, hard trip, the final piece of the puzzle is creating a hostile environment that the boy sperm will encounter during this trip. As I've said before, Y sperm are very vulnerable and weak. A high PH or acidity is just another variable that helps to weed them out. Of everything that I've discussed, this is the variable that scares people the most. But, it's not as scary as it sounds. Raising your vaginal PH is not too difficult if you have the correct tools and it's only a temporary thing that you have to do until you reach the optimal level and then conceive.
The best way to make this easier is to know your level going in. This is accomplished using testing strips that are readily available. Once you know if you're naturally alkaline or acidic (and how high) you'll then make the necessary adjustments and continue to test to see how quickly you are making progress.
You raise acidity in two ways. You douche or you go on a special diet. Or, if you're really impatient, you do both. Again, there are food lists and douche recipes out there that help to make this easier.
It's important to understand that all of these variables work together to give you a very high chance of success. But, you can't do just one and leave the others to chance. You have to approach this in a step by step, disciplined way. Pinpoint your ovulation date first and then get to work. Figure out your PH, adjust accordingly, and then when the time is right, use the sexual or intercourse positions that were outlined before.
Conceive A Girl is a website I put together to offer step by step instructions, hints, tips, and resources for couples wishing to conceive a baby girl. You'll find resources for douche recipes and food lists, as well as ovulation predictors and PH test strips. Take a look if you like at http://conceive-a-girl-baby.com/
