i was at my heaviest weight i have ever been when i conieved my son.
i always ate breakfast often it would be a full cooked breakfast of bacon egg sausage beans etc or cereal, i ate snacked all the time on crisps, chocolate, sausage rolls, pastys. i drank lots of coffee and coke hardly any water. i would have full meals at lunch including meat and often a take out for tea i was having these alot. i ate cheese, meat, no veg, lots rubbish

hmm i ate alot of chips, potatoes, beef, tomatoes, soda milk, cereals, breads, fries, apples, bananas, salads, ice cream, gravey, rice, hmmm idk what else i ate. I did have sex alot..except for babies #2 4 and 6..we barely had sex, well I barely did. I still ended up pregnant with boys. I did orgasm..So I wonder if that had anything to do with it. Ihonestly did not chart or watch anything with any of my baby boys..so I cant say what my cm was or anything..Sorry.

DS1: Heavier than I had been in my life (steroid weight gain for a liver issue, not sure if that had an effect), ate lots of cereal (grains in general actually), very little fruit. Had sex twice (on the 14th and 19th...Oed on the 19th). Man on top, no O.

DS2: Back to a normal weight. Ate lots of dairy, meat, and grains. Some veg/fruit too...a more balanced diet in general. Plenty of diet drinks though. Had sex four days consecutively before O, including O day. Woman on top, did O.

So I think the timing is the primary factor in common. We were not trying for DS1 (he was a surprise), but we were for DS2. I think *if* we decide to sway next time (I am leaning toward not), we will concentrate on timing more than anything else.

I don't really remember what I was eating, but with timing, my son was conceived on the day I was ovulating. With my first pregnancy (which we lost at 15 weeks), we fell pregnant by DTD 4 days prior to ovulation (it was a girl).

I have 2 boys and I eat healthful foods, not really any red meat, mostly chicken, turkey, salads, whole wheat pasta, but a lot of protein, and I eat often. With ds1 we dtd for 18 days in a row and I O'd and laid in bed with my hips propped up. I was taking Royal jelly, and cod liver oil. With DS2 we dtd less frequently, I don't remember, maybe every few days? I was eating about the same way, pretty nutriously and high protein.

Not sure with my first two. With this one I wanted to sway for a girl. I was drinking acidic drinks and BD about 4 days before O. I think the problem was we then BD on the day I O'ed. So I am now pregnant with my third boy.

Thanks PrincessMom08 for my wonderful siggy!

I have 2 DD's and didn't pay attention to timing with either. This one, I wanted my boy cause we have 4 girls between us an I think most of it was in the timing. We drank lemon water and used ph neutral lube etc. I think mostly it was BD'ing on O day.
