This will be my first month ttc and I'm hoping for a little boy. I'm slightly confused as to when to dtd to sway for a boy! I will be using OPKs. When exactly should we dtd? I know everything I've read says 'close to ovulation' so does that mean once I get a positive on the OPK? Just a little confused since an OPK positive means that you should ovulate within the next 22-48 hours. Or should we dtd a day after getting a positive OPK? Ugh...this is so frustrating, lol. I already have two little girls so a little boy would just be wonderful!

I never used opks but my boys were all conceived on ovulation day. Maybe if you get your positive in the morning dtd that night. Also get your dh to drink coffee half an hour before. Eat food high in potassium and sodium. Maybe red meat and potatoes and cauliflower. Jacket potatoes for lunch with a filling like egg and bacon or a ham sandwich or pizza with pepperoni, chips with lots of salt. Drink green tea. Maybe before dtd get dh to have a cool shower and you have a cool bath. Add sea salt to your baths if you can. Maybe take some cough mixture with guinfensein in that morning to help ewcm. dtd in a woman on top position. Make sure the room is cool.

Bananas are full of potassium. Definitely eat lots of those too.

Shell has some great advice! I took potassium and evening primrose oil when TTC #1 and he turned out to be a boy. I'm also sure we conceived him on the day I ovulated which helps. I love salt, so I may never have a girl

Boy swimmers are faster but dont last as long so if wanting a boy ud wanna bd right at ovulation or right after. Plus lots of potassium. This is what I read at least when I am ttc I would like a boy too.

in this case,actually your body favors y sperms, not idea why u still have 3 girls.
Maybe u conceived them ahead of Ovulation day?
Have u ever done any sway for 3 girls when u conceived them?

Could be DH's sperm count, or his pH. Do you know your pH after DTD?

Hey Jamie! Going for a girl eh? my older 2 have different dads so can't be my dh's sperm. It is possible that they were conceived a few days before o. In fact I'm sure 1 of them was, at least. I don't eat any red meat or pork and I eat a ton of veggies, fruit pasta, rice, bananas, cheese, coffee and water. I guess that's a girl diet? Lol I'm trying to change it. I never swayed...intentionally anyway!

Haha, yeah, ttc a girl in Jan/Febish. My cycles returned in Feb, but I haven't had a LP that goes past 7 days, yet. I'm hoping to score some clomid in Jan at my well woman appt, to lengthen my LP. Clomid sways PINK!!! BFing sways pink too, and even though DS needs to continue to BF for a little bit yet, I will use that to my TTC advantages!

Remember anything that increases fertility sways BLUE. Maybe try soy-iso, switch to soy milk, eat soy burgers... soy sways blue. Expectorants increase EWCM and can sway blue too. Taking extra vitamins and making sure you eat several small meals a day to keep your blood sugar up sways blue.
