I often get emails from people who are dead set on either conceiving a boy or a girl and most of them intuitively know that the number of days away from or after ovulation can most definitely affect the outcome as to which gender they have. But, they don't know whether they are shooting for before ovulation or after it and many don't know how to make sure that they hit this window with absolutely certainty, which I will discuss in the following article.
Why Monitoring Your Ovulation Is Important If You Have A Preference As To Your Baby's Gender: Many women think that their egg becomes ready for ovulation on the same day every month. This is likely true for a small subset of women, but it is not true for every one. The day of ovulation can vary widely from one month to the next for a variety of reasons – many of which you have no control over. And, some women will ovulate one month but then skip the next. It's very important to be able to see exactly what is happening internally so that you can plan accordingly.
Just because you are having periods (even regular ones) does not necessarily mean that you are ovulating each and every time. And, just because you may be menstruating at around the same time each month, this does not mean that you are ovulating at around the same time. You can easily determine when and how regularly you are actually ovulating by using ovulation predictors. These measure your bodily fluids and there are many types. It's important that you use them on a regular basis so you can see exactly what is going on and whether you can establish a pattern that will allow you to pinpoint an optimal period in the future so that you can plan accordingly.
Understanding Which Periods Around Ovulation Favor A Girl Baby And Which Favor A Girl: If you want a daughter, then you are shooting for the window before ovulation. Specifically, you want to go from 3 -4 days out. This can be more of a challenge as most mainstream predictors will give you a plus or a positive after the egg has already been released. But, for a girl child, you need to know up to 4 days before this day. And there are only a few predictors that will give you this information – and most of those measure your saliva rather than your urine.
If you are trying for a boy baby, then you have it a bit easier because you are going for the day of ovulation and for the time period that comes directly after it. The reasoning behind this isn't entirely important, but I will tell you anyway. It all stems from the fact that the boy producing sperm do not live for very long and so they need a tighter time frame in which to have the best chance.
To increase your odds even more, you'll want to make your body more acidic if you want a girl (as this makes it harder for those shorter lived boy producing sperm.) You will also want to monitor and potentially change your PH if you want a boy. But, you will be trying to become more alkaline rather than being acidic.
I've put together a few websites that take a lot of the guess work out of choosing your baby's gender when getting pregnant. You'll find step by step instructions, resources for douche recipes and food PH lists, information on when to conceive, tips, support, and examples of ovulation predictors / PH testing strips.
