DH and I are going to start trying to conceive soon. We both would like a boy first. Him because it'd be his boy, and me because I have seen brothers be protective of their younger sisters (even with my brother and sister since I'm the oldest) but haven't experienced a protective older brother. I know it might not turn out that our son would be protective of our daughter, but I'd like a shot at it.

I have no problem with trying to sway for one gender, knowing that it may not work since we just want a baby. However, I'm worried that swaying for one gender will hurt our chances to conceive. Does anyone feel like trying to sway for a gender may have made it take longer to become pregnant?

Thanks! That's good to know that swaying for a boy is just sperm-friendly in general.

I'd love to hear more experiences, too.

I think it's easier to sway for a boy, coz you get to DTD on the day before, day of and day after ovulation! We decided we'd just go for it first time round, then try to sway for the other gender second time round.

Good luck! Looking forward to getting to know you!
