[based on the Chinese Calendar, if I were to conceive in December or January, I should have a boy..... and tomorrow is my "ovulation day" if I am understanding charting right.... which is supposedly the best day to try for a boy....but since I have not gotten my thermometer in the mail yet, I am hesitant about trying in our first month... but January is my last chance until next December if I go my the Chinese calendar, which was right for all three girls... I wish I had researched this charting stuff before we started out little family... but in the end I am sure none of there "theories" are 100%]

[please don't get me wrong, I love all three of my girls and would not trade them for anything!]

I think most people don't actually O on CD14.. even with perfect 28 day cycles. But yeah, I believe the only reason they say that about conceiving a boy is because boy sperm doesn't last as long, but swims the fastest.. soo I guess if you DTD right around when your egg drops, the quick lil boy sperms are gonna meet the egg before the girl ones would. Though here I am with a boy and I am almost certain he was conceived days before I actually ovulated.. so you just never know!

I'm no charting expert, but I did chart for a while so feel free to ask questions if you have them. lol

I know ovulation is pretty close, just how how I feel right now, but I am no expert on my own body.... charting is confusing... making babies seems more difficult with a chart than without to me..... but because we would really like a boy, I am trying my best to raise the chances, lol. DH may just not have any boys let in him

lol there's supposedly certain foods and stuff that sway boy too.. and yes, charting does make it seem difficult but its so necessary for some people who have irregular cycles. I always charted just so I'd know when to test haha. I always knew when I was about to O though, just because I "learned" my body. good luck! I think after 3 girls you've definitely got odds in your favor! lol

I have nothing to add, cause charting is really, really confusing to me to. I do it somewhat. So, I hope you get that boy you want Gwyn!

I used to be a firm believer in those calendars until I got preg with Nash, according to the calendar he should have been a girl.

Have you read up on biorhythms? I read a lot about them when I was preg with Nash and the results for all my children were spot on.

According to my Chinese age Lucas should still have been a girl! Poor kid is surrounded by them, how do I tell him he should have been one of them

I was told today that your odds of a boy are greater if the female does all the work.... so because I am a lazy person in bed I get lots of girls, lol!
