Choosing Gender of Baby x-post

Postby jnormandeau » Thu Jul 16, 2009 10:13 am

A friend of mine is trying to get pregnant and she was wondering how accurate it was for anyone if they used the shettles method or tried to pick the gender of their baby. She doesn't care what she gets, but she would like to see if it is an accurate method as she wants to try and guess the sex of her baby. If you tried choosing a gender, what days in your cycle did you BD compared to when you ovulated and did it actually give you the gender you were looking for or at least work the way the shettles method describes.

I wasn't TRYING for a gender I was just trying to get PG LOL but it happened to be during/after O and I got a boy. This time it was just before O so I'm hoping it's a girl but I won't know for a few more weeks.

We were also just TRYING to get pregnant, and it didn't matter what gender. We only did the BD on the day of O and are having a GIRL! I thought for sure, because of our timing that it was going to be a boy.

We weren't trying for this baby but I remembered the day we had sex ( it was christmas day :oops: ) when I found out I was pregnant I didn't know my LMP so I went for a dating u/s and they had day of conception around the 29th of December and this one is a boy. So I guess it didn't work out in my case.

I have heard with a boy BD around ovulation, and for a girl BD a couple days before ovulation. But really I think that its just luck.
