Here is a copy of my post when I got my BFP that detailed my sway.....
Well, we got a !!!!
I am not at all getting my hopes up for a girl because with my track record it is not likely. Though I swayed as much as I could while not being obvious to DH what I was doing.
*Supplements: Calcium Citrate (4 a day)
Magnesium (2 a day)
VItamen C (1 a day)
Cranberry (25000 fruit equivalent a day... 1 tab)
Lydia Pinkham (1 day)
Folic Acid (4 a day)
*pH was 4.5 when we DTD and kept through Ovulation
*Used Replens (maybe it was rephresh... its the blue tube with the low
ph) every day about 1/4 inch in the tube.
*Lime Tampon after DTD for an hour then I was getting freaked out by it...lol
*We DTD almost daily that week but he only was up for "depositing" on CD 5 and CD 7. I ovulated on CD 12 or 13 (had +OPK on 12) and felt twinge on CD13. I got another +OPK on CD15. We didnt give it a try except for days 5 & 7 so either way at minimum it was 5 day cutoff.
* No Big O.
* Chinese Gender Charts with Adjusted Age was correct for both my boys and says girl this time.
I didnt do the diet because it would not have been possible without DH knowing I was and then I couldnt ask him spur of the moment to try. He would have been thinking too much since he was on the fence about trying for a third.
So thats my sway and time will tell I guess. Either way I am super excited to have a baby in my arms soon!!!
..... and its a........
I should say ANOTHER...... BOY!!!
I cried when I was told at 17 weeks. I went through denial where I thought I could make out girl parts. Went back at 20 weeks and got another ultrasound and though its different than my other two boys it has to be a boy.... no other explanation... and the tech was certain.
It was my last chance so it looks like a daughter is never in my future I am sad. I am looking forward to meeting my baby boy and happy about him... I just am very sad at never having a daughter and letting that dream of a mother/daughter relationship go. In no way would I not want the baby I am carrying. I just want another chance, kwim? I would never sway again and never leave it to chance. If given the opportunity to do this again its high tech for me and PGD/IVF or adoption. Figured I would update everyone. Good luck to everyone trying to sway. I hope you have better luck than me!
Oh wow... I often wonder if swaying works at all... You did everything you could to sway, so be proud of yourself there!
I know you will love this little guy with ALL your heart, but I understand your disappointment in never having a daughter. I'm really worried I'll feel the same way if we conceive another boy. But I know in my heart, that a healthy baby is all that matters.
Congrats on your little bundle of blue. And I am sorry that you are not going to get your girl. I am a little worried about it myself. I hang around here because people in here know how that feels. Even with losses under my belt and a complicated pregnancy (last one), I still have a strong desire to have a girl. Not that I don't love my sons to pieces or wouldn't be happy with another little boy. But I do understand having to give up that dream of having a little girl. I wish you all the best with your three little dudes
