When a couple decides to have a baby, one of the first things that go through their mind is whether they would like to have a boy or a girl. Most would think that it is impossible to get the preferred gender, but the good news is that there is a chance.


Tips to get Pregnant with a Girl

Some people just prefer to have a girl; they would call her their princess and bestow her with all their love and attention before giving her up at the altar. There can be ways in which you can try to conceive a baby girl and that is the truth! This can be done in the simplest way possible, just make some notes and utilize them when trying to get pregnant.


Timing Sex to have a Baby Girl

Most of us know that there are many days in women’s cycle that are ideal to conceive. But what some of us fail to realise is that the day you conceive also determines the gender of your baby. If you want a baby girl then conceiving early in the cycle helps. It is evident from a study that sperms that determine male gender live only for 3 days while the sperm containing an X chromosome (that determine female gender) can live for 5 days. So have sex before 4 to 5 days of your ovulation.

Keep track of your monthly cycle and be aware of the physical changes in your body when you ovulate. Count from the very first day of your period. Women who have 28 to 30 days cycle ovulate around 14th day.


Positions to Conceive Baby Girl

Choose intercourse position with which you can deposit sperms at the entrance of vagina. Since vaginal area is acidic in nature it will only allow the sperms with X chromosome to fertilise the egg.


Some people suggest that having sex with woman on top helps to conceive a baby girl.



Dr. Shettles in his book, How to Choose the Sex of Your Baby, states that female orgasm during lovemaking can actually influence gender of baby. Orgasm makes vaginal environment more alkaline and favourable to conceive baby boy.

So, if you are trying to conceive a baby girl then avoid orgasm during sex. Besides this orgasm also facilitates sperm to move into cervix thus giving X chromosome extra chance to survive and fertilise.


pH level

High pH environment improves your chances to conceive a baby girl. Increasing intake of high pH diet can increase PH level. You can use pH measuring strips for keeping track of pH level.

If you follow all the above mentioned methods then surely you will increase your chances of getting pregnant with a baby girl.
