Anyone do this?

Gender Selection: The Shettles Method


This will be our first pregnancy where we were this close to ovulation when we conceived so I'm interested to see if it worked. We didn't plan it like this, just sorta happened. So if we find out that this is indeed another girl (which we would love!) I think it would be safe to say we only make girls

I haven't tried it before, I have no clue when O time was with my first baby. I didn't even know about stuff like that when I got pregnant. I just knew you have sex to get pregnant, lol. We got pregnant first try with him. We were right around O time with the next 2 boys. I can let you know on June 10th with this one. We were around O time again this time.

I ovulated like 4-5 days before we DTD and we got a boy...it should have been a girl with this method. I think we only make boys in our families...I have all male siblings and cousins and so does my hubby. I was a fluke!

We were trying to conceive a girl with our daughter, and it seemed to work! My son and this one were not planned, so I'm not sure, Eve is the only one we have to go by.

All my boys including this one were conceived the day before O day. My dd is the only one we don't know exactly when she was conceived. It was never planned this way it had to do with my dh's work and other things. For example this one he came back for three days from overseas and had to leave again.

We did some small things to sway. We did attempt the "girl" method and dh was taking hot showers just before, so I guess we will find out if it worked next month!

We dtd 4 days before O and 2 days after. I have no clue what the heck we are getting this time. LOL!
Both times I was on top ...I know TMI but seriously? What are the chances?
I may have Oed late but I'm measuring ahead.
My symptoms are all pointing to girl. I can't wait to find out.

We swayed a little for a boy. Dtd on O day and the day after, in the suggested position lol. I am really feeling girl, though. I guess we'll see if it worked in a few weeks!

We used the timing method with number 3 & 4, both times trying for a boy. Number 3 was a girl, Number 4 was a boy. So it had a 50% rate for us

We DTD on the 12th of Jan but I didn't O until the 17th or 18th of Jan. I'm shocked I even got pregnant during Jan cycle. So based just alone on timing we should get a girl, but I'm not getting my hopes up. We'll find out in two weeks what we've been blessed with

We DTD 3 days before ovulation and again *right* when I was ovulating. As in, it wasn't very much fun because I was cramping so bad. It is possible that I could have gotten pregnant from the former rather than the latter.

I tried it with my previous pregnancies but got opposites. For this one I did a bit more research and followed the Low Everything diet. Based on the other sites, the Shettles method was disproven so I don't take much stock in it.
