I have found that Robitussum cough syrup helps thin out the cm. You take it 4- 5 days before ovulatioin 2 teaspoon every 4 hours 3 times a day and also take it on the day of ovulation. As well, if you are using an opk, keep taking it upto and including day of ovulation. I found this very interesting and my aunt also told me once to do this but it never hit me until I came across it. this weekend. It is also on this website justmommies. Check it out. I know I will be using it as of tonight.

Does it sway for a boy or a girl do you know?

While there's not a lot of medical research to support this idea, anecdotal evidence suggests that it can help. But there are a few caveats, too. One ingredient in certain cough syrups — guaifenesin — can help you get pregnant by thinning your cervical fluid, which enables sperm to travel through your cervix and fertilize an egg. If you know from taking your temperature every morning that you're ovulating, but you don't seem to be producing much wet, slippery, cervical fluid, guaifenesin might be all the help you need to get pregnant. This is the paradox, though: You need to know when you're approaching ovulation to take advantage of this recommendation, and the only way to know that is by checking your cervical fluid. So guaifenesin works best on women who do produce at least some cervical fluid.

How does it work? Guaifenesin, a common ingredient in cough syrups, is an "expectorant." That is, it relieves congestion by helping liquefy mucus in your lungs, allowing you to cough it up. And because it works systemically on all mucous membranes in your body, it can make your cervical fluid wetter, too.

The trick is to find a cough syrup in which guaifenesin is the only active ingredient, so check labels carefully. Many cough and cold medicines contain antihistamines that also work systemically in your body but have the reverse effect: They dry up mucus and diminish wet cervical fluid. And while you're trying to get pregnant, there's no reason to expose yourself to any other drugs unnecessarily, so find a product that contains only guaifenesin and no other active ingredients, including dextromethorphan (a cough suppressant) and alcohol. Humibid LA — the pill form of guaifenesin, available by prescription — is a safe choice. Ask your healthcare provider to prescribe it for you.

If you're taking the liquid form of guaifenesin, take 2 teaspoons three times a day around the time of month you're expecting to ovulate. If you're taking the pill form (Humibid LA), take it as prescribed for a cold. Either way, I would encourage you to take it from the first day you notice any type of wetness through the day of your temperature shift. That may be about a week. (Editor's note: If you're not yet charting your basal body temperature, click here for more information on how to do it.)

Guaifenesin may even work for women who've had abnormal cervical cells frozen off or who've had a cone biopsy — the removal of a cone-shaped wedge of the cervix to treat lesions that may be precancerous. This procedure destroys some of the cervical crypts that produce fluid. If this is what's behind your low production of cervical fluid, taking guaifenesin might help you produce enough wet, slippery fluid through the remaining cervical crypts to help you get pregnant

ChicaChels bfing is also a factor for swaying a girl and taking the suppliments for girl swaying is fine. they natural. cranberry can even help your baby if she gets urinary tract infections (my little girl gets them all the time)

are you going to try sway? COOL! keep me posted!

Hi ladies

I am new but this looks like a great forum. So glad I found it.

Thanks for making up this list- so helpful.

I bought a plan from a-gender who help with gender swaying and they have magnesium in their list for trying to conceive a girl for the woman to take- up to 400mg a day. They have been really great to me and seem to know what they are talking about. I only bought a silver plan- on special for $39 Australian this month- actually it also mentions acidophilus for a girl?? Has anyone heard of this? There stats are pretty high so I think I will follow all their advice.

There are lots of lifestyle changes I am going to have to make- just hope I can do it!

Good luck to all of you and me too- hee hee!!! :lol:

I've read on numerous web sites now that you have to have Calcium Citrate to sway girl and NOT Calcium Carbonate. Most of what you find in local pharmacies is the carbonate. And be sure to take it with Vit. D or else you don't absorb enough.

And I also read one baby aspirin a day. It helps prevent m/c, it lowers pH so that helps sway girl and it's great for your heart anyway. You shouldn't take it with cranberry though because both are blood thinners...that's what I've read, I've yet to run it past my MD.

Re: List of supplements *please help add to list*
 
For at least 6 weeks before ttc. You should stop taking cranberry after Ovulation, during the 2 week wait.
The cough syrup sways blue.

Re: List of supplements *please help add to list*
 
If men are taking cranberry also, do they keep taking it while we arent (TWW)?? I'm guessing that has no effect on anything, but you know, I need to ask lol
