Janey, I'm not sure on how to concieve certain sex. I've read research online of when to BD and when to abstain so you can have a certain sex. But I believe you can do all that but god will bless you with what he sees fit. And as long as the baby is healthy I don't care about the sex

Everything with a star next to it we did.

Things that DEFINITELY sway girl.
-Low Sperm Count (can be from age or other factors)*
-Smoking (sways a little if man smokes, sways a lot if woman smokes)* (husband smokes)
-Losing weight
-"Low Everything Diet" (I highly recommend this one but wasn't able to do it)
-Abstain for 7 days and then DTD at O+12 (harder to get pregnant with this one)
-DTD from the day AF ends through ovulation*
-Age (over 24, the older the better)*
-Being sick while TTC*

Things that MIGHT sway girl.
-Shallow penetration positions during sex (missionary, woman on top)*
-woman not drinking alcohol but man drinking alcohol (raises his estrogen)*
-Negative Ion's (fans, ion bracelet, and rock salt lamp)*
-no orgasm during sex for woman*
-low cervical mucous PH (we used PH strips to test)*
-no caffeine
-hot shower before DTD (lowers sperm count which sways boy)*
-man wearing briefs instead of boxers (lowers sperm count which sways boy)*

Strange things I DO believe in...
-Moon phase (closer to new moon sways girl, closer to full moon sways boy)*

Other things...
-Avoid the "October Effect" (September-November more boys are conceived. Not by a lot or anything, but there's an influx. I did get preg in Nov. with my girl, though.)

-high protein diets sway boy
-cereal sways boy
-stress usually sways boy (if it's the obsessive, type-a-personality kind of stress. the "feeling like a victim" kind of stress sways girl)
-doing the opposite of anything here sways boy

I think that's about it! Hope it helps. Any questions, let me know!

Things that DEFINITELY sway boy:
-IUI (keep in mind clomid without IUI sways girl)
-High Sperm Count
-Younger ages (usually below 24 is ideal
-Not smoking
-eating a high-nutrient diet, especially with protein, salt, red meat, and potassium. You are right cereal sways boy, too!
-Lifting Weights
-Stress due to obsessive/winning nature.
-DTD every other day and close to O (but BEFORE Ovulation, not after). I'd say ideally, 1-3 days before O, and DON'T DTD every day. Also, DON'T go too long *without* sex because that can also lower sperm count and sway girl (so, twice a week to every other day is ideal for a boy sway)
-don't TTC while you have a cold.

Things that MIGHT sway boy.
-deeper penetration positions during sex (such as doggy style)
-woman orgasming. You can even do this AFTER your DH orgasms, which is supposed to be even better.
-you drinking but husband not drinking
-fertile CM and high PH
-drinking caffeine
-no hot showers before ttc
-man wearing boxers instead of briefs

Strange things I DO believe in...
-Moon phase (closer to new moon sways girl, closer to full moon sways boy)
-October Effect (September-November more boys are conceived. Not by a lot or anything, but there's an influx. I did get preg in Nov. with my girl, though.)

I think that's about it! Hope it helps. Any questions, let me know!
