Meaning, if you have sex very close to ovulation, chances are higher that you'll have a boy because they boy sperm use all their enegry to get their first, and if ovulation is very close to that time, then the boys have a higher chance.

And if you have sex around ovulation a day or two before, then you have higher chance of getting a girl, because they swim slower to the egg but live longer because they didn't use all their engery to get there. So that if it's a little ways away from ovulation the boys would have all died before the egg has dropped!

Just a thought!
I know some people don't believe in this, but it rang very true for me. And, I always knew exactly when I ovulated bc I would get ovulation pain, plus positive OPK's.
