Ways To Raise The Chances Of Having A Baby Girl

How to get a baby girl?

Girls are lovely, tender and considerate for their parents, thus loved ardently by modern young parents. Many parents want to give birth to a baby girl so that they can dress her up as a cute little princess. For some families, they already have baby boys, so when they plan to get another baby, they long for a baby girl to have a balance. Then how to conceive a baby girl? Here are some tips to help raise the chance.

Basic Knowledge about Baby Selection:
The baby’s gender is determined by the father. The women carry the X-chromosome in eggs. Men, on the other hand, have X (girl-producing) and Y (boy-producing), so, each of the sperm carries one of the two chromosomes. When the X- producing sperm penetrate the egg, the girl will be conceived. And if ‘XY’ is formed, the baby will be a boy.

The Baby Girl Diet

Mother-to-be: Acidic Food; Father-to-be: Alkalescent Food
For a mother-to-be, if you want to conceive a girl, you should avoid eating too much alkaline food rather than taking in appropriate acidic food. Of course, you should not eat too much acidic food, so as not to affect your health. Here, the acidic food doesn’t mean the food with sour taste or smell but the food which can lead to the acid-base imbalance of the human body environment.In daily life, the acidic food includes: all kinds of meat, fish and dairy products excluding fresh milk (such as cream, ice cream and cheese), rice and wheat flour products, can, corn, egg white, sour fruits (tomato, orange, strawberry, grape, apple, pineapple, etc.), chocolate, beverage, and vinegar. Eating the above food will make your body acid.For a father-to-be, you can take more alkaline food, including vegetables, fruits, milk, flour products, tea, kelp, seaweed, iodine, calcium, Vitamin D, etc. 

Eating More Fruits and Vegetables
Scientists have found that if your diet a few weeks before the pregnancy is rich in calcium and magnesium (such as green vegetables), you will be more likely to conceive a baby girl. In a group of women participants whose diet is carefully matched by the researchers, 80% have given birth to a baby girl. In contrast, you will be more likely to give birth to a baby boy if you eat more food rich in sodium and potassium (such as banana and potato) a few weeks before the pregnancy. However, it remains to be confirmed by further studies.

Eating More Desserts
American researchers have found that, food can swing the female reproductive system through the hormonal action to make a certain gender embryo have stronger “survivability”. Therefore, the content of sugar and fat in a mother-to-be’s diet have certain impact on the fetus gender. If you like to eat desserts, you will be more likely to conceive a girl.

Normal Intercourse and Sexual Positions

Research shows that the more sperms in intercourse, the easier to have a baby boy; the less sperms in intercourse, the easier to conceive a baby girl. According to this theory, if you want to give birth to a baby boy, you should abstain from sex several days before ovulation, so that your husband will produce the largest amount of sperms and the chance of Y sperms fertilizing the egg will be improved. If you want to have a baby girl, however, you don’t need to abstain from sex but keep the normal frequency (e.g. once every three days) and you’d better have intercourse two days before the ovulation.

Note: To get to know your ovulation date, use Ovulation Date Calculator if your menstrual period is regular. Or, you can buy ovulation detection kits to test.

In terms of sexual positions, the traditional Missionary position is suggested and the deep penetration should be avoided. At the same time, you should avoid having an orgasm to reduce the chance of having a baby boy. You should abstain from sex one week after the intercourse as it is the gestation period.

The Right Date to Conceive a Girl
There is a 700-year-old Chinese baby gender chart which could help you find out the suitable time to conceive a daughter. You can use Baby gender selection tool to check out the dates very easily. Just select your birthday in Gregorian calendar, the year you plan to get pregnant and baby girl, the calendar will show you the suggested conceiving time for girl in Gregorian calendar. This conception chart is proved to have a high accuracy but still not works for everyone.

 

The Older the Parents, the Higher Chance for Girl
It is an indisputable fact that the older the parents, the easier to conceive a baby girl. The age factor will affect the physical quality of both man and woman. For a father-to-be, your sperm count will decrease with the increase of age; for a mother-to-be, your physiological hormone will change with the age and the alkaline secretions in your uterus will decrease with the increase of age, thus the chance of having a baby girl is greatly increased.

 

Great Pressure Creates Girl Easily
According to the latest research of Danish psychologists, females are more likely to conceive a baby girl under the great mental stress. For a mother-to-be, the great pressure will create a strong acid environment which is adverse to Y-bearing sperms and increases the chance of having a baby girl. For a father-to-be under the pressure for a long period of time, the sperm count will decrease. Although it is easier to conceive a baby girl under the great pressure, you are not suggested to do so because the health of you and your baby is much more important than the baby’s gender and you should let nature take its course.

 

Occupational Factors
According to the statistical report, a man will be more likely to give birth to a baby girl if he is a driver, flight attendant, pilot, anesthesiologist or an office worker sitting in a computer radiation environment for a long time. This is because the great change of temperature, pressure and radiation or the inhaling of too much toxic anesthetic gas will kill the Y-bearing sperms first which are weaker than the X-bearing sperms, thus the chance of having a baby girl is increased.

 

Smoker Parents More Likely to Conceive Girl
If the parents are both smokers who keep smoking during the pregnancy, the probability of conceiving a baby boy will be almost halved. Smoker parents may “kill” the male fetus in the womb. Even if only the father smokes, the mother as an involuntary smoker is more likely to give birth to a girl. It is supposed that smoking can bring certain change to the mother’s body, such as estrogen hyposecretion and uterine lesion; the Y chromosomes in a man’s sperms which play a decisive role in giving birth to a boy are very sensitive to this kind of change and will be hurt by the change, thus the chance of conceiving a baby boy is reduced.

 

Pretty Parents are More Likely to Have a Girl
This interesting research is based on a statistics which shows that the chance of pretty parents giving birth to a girl in the first pregnancy is 26% higher than giving birth to a boy. However, whether the theory is scientific is to be proved. So, just look for a pretty lover if you want to give birth to a baby girl!

Ways to Raise the Chances of Having a Baby Boy

How to get a baby boy?

In our forum – Baby Gender Prediction board, most of the members asked us when is the best time for them to get pregnant with a baby boy. It seems that most of the people would like to have a boy. We usually offer you some date suggestions according to the traditional Chinese baby gender calendar based on your Chinese Age, but it’s not the only element deciding if you could conceive a boy.

Here we offer some other ways that can increase the chances of getting a baby boy. Some research results claim these ways may raise the chances of conceiving a boy. However, there is no medical evidence shows that any of them is effective.

Basic Knowledge about Baby Selection:

The baby’s gender is determined by the father. The women carry the X-chromosome in eggs. Men, on the other hand, have X (girl-producing) and Y (boy-producing), so, each of the sperm carries one of the two chromosomes. When the Y- producing sperm penetrate the egg, the boy will be conceived. And if ‘XX’ is formed, the baby will be a girl.

The Baby Boy Diet

Mother-to-be: Alkalescent Food; Father-to-be: Acidic Food
What you eat before getting pregnant to some extent determines whether you give birth to a boy or a girl. It is believed that by eating different food, the PH for one’s body would be changed. The alkaline substance released from the mother’s vagina is thought to be more male-sperm friendly. So, the mother is suggested to eat more alkalescent food or those contains much sodium and potassium to raise the chance of getting a boy.Common Alkalescent food include vegetables (like tomato, potato, carrot, cabbage, onion, mushroom, spinach, cucumber, lettuce…), fruit (like banana, papaya, pear, orange, watermelon, grape, strawberry, lemon, persimmon, apple…), bean products (like green beans, soya beans, red beans, bean curd…), flour products (like soda biscuit, dessert without cream…), tea, coffee, grape wine, kelp, marine algae and so on.On the contrary, the father should eat more acidic foods include egg yolk, cheese, pastry, pasta, cakes made from refined white sugar, rice, fish (like tuna, flat fish, carp…), meat (like pork, beef, chicken…), ham, shrimp, peanuts, beer, chocolate and so on.You’d better eat proper food at least one month before conception.

Mother-to-be: More High-calorie Food
Some British scientists have made a survey and found those women who like to eat high-calorie food in daily life before getting pregnant mostly give birth to a boy at last. While, those are on a low-calorie diet are mostly get a baby girl. Therefore, if you plan to get a baby boy, don’t lose weight. Try more high-calorie food may take effect.
Mother-to-be: More Salty Food
Scientists in South Africa who have also made some research and found that the females eating more salty food and lean meat before pregnancy are much more likely to get baby boys than those liking to eat chocolates.
Mother-to-be: More Cereal for Breakfast
The study also shows the odds of a male baby go up sharply for women who like to eat cereal for breakfast compared with those who eat less. So, insist on having cereal for your breakfast before pregnancy. The chances of getting pregnant with baby boys will be high.

Choose the Right Season to Conceive
It is said that temperature could decide the baby’s gender. A baby boy is easy to be created in the high – temperature environment and a girl in the low temperature. This is because the high temperature will affect the X-bearing chromosome and make Y-bearing chromosome more active. On the other hand, the low temperature is more favorable for the X-bearing chromosome and easy to make genetic make-up “XX”. So, if you conceive during the summer time, you would have more chances to get a boy. In winter, you are more likely to have a girl. Although there is no enough scientific evidence to show it’s authentic, it can be a reference.
Choose the Right Date to Conceive
Through the 700-year-old Chinese baby gender chart, you could find out which dates having more odds to get a boy for you. As it’s based on the mother’s Chinese lunar age and lunar conception month, it’s difficult to calculate for many people. So, we have made this Baby gender selection tool for you to check out the dates very easily. Just select your birthday in Gregorian calendar, the year you plan to get pregnant and baby boy, the calendar will show you the suggested conceiving time for boy in Gregorian calendar. Although, this calendar is proved to have a high accuracy, it’s not right to everyone.
Keep the Sperm Count High
A high sperm count would increase the chance to get a boy. So, when you plan to have a baby, you should avoid sex for 3-7 days before ovulation. This can ensure the father’s sperm count high on your ovulation day.
Time to Intercourse and the Position

You are suggested to have sex as close to your ovulation. You can use Ovulation Date Calculator to find out your ovulation date if your menstrual period is regular. Also, you can buy ovulation detection kits to test. For baby boy, you’d better have sex no more than 24 hours before ovulation and no more than 12 hours after that.

The rear entry position (also known as the doggy style) and standing up are the best positions to increase the odds of conceiving baby boy because the ways allow for deeper penetration thus increase the chance for the Y sperm penetrating the egg. In addition, the woman had better have five to ten minutes’ rest after intercourse.

Conceive during your Golden Age
It’s said that the older the parents, the more chances to get a girl. The best time for the female to get a baby boy is between 23 and 30. And for the male, the best time is between 30 and 35. If you are plan to get a baby after 30 (for female), and 35 (for male), you would have more chances to get a girl. So, you’d better to give birth to a baby at your golden age to raise the chance of getting a boy.
Father-to-be: Avoid Smoking and Drinking
Scientific research has confirmed that drinking or smoking helps to reduce the number of male sperm counts. In order to get boys, the fathers-to-be need to have hardy sperms. If drinking or smoking, those hardy ones will be reduced greatly. So, there will be few chances for men who drink or smoke seriously to get baby boys. If you are sure to have the plan of having a boy, better quit smoking and the habit of drinking.
