COMMENTS?        -my biorythms (right for my boys) lined up nicely in “girl” territory, my husband’s were neutral, officially Summer, Sexwizard (right for my boys) says Girl, Chinese Gender charts are in agreement with Sexwizard, So I guess it could be worse… though the full moon really (potentially) messes things up 😦 All in all, it was a decent sway. We didn’t think I’d actually ovulated, so we didn’t do EGS like we’d planned. We also didn’t continue the diet til BFP like we’d originally planned because–well, we thought I didn’t ovulate, and we were going to go straight to IVF/PGD, so it was about 2-3 weeks after I ovulated when we stopped the diet and supplements (did stop cranberry on the 3rd and slowly weaned off the B6 over the past 2 weeks but continued with the rest of the supplements til BFPs then stopped all but baby aspirin and folic acid. If we get a boy, I know that we did all we could and we just weren’t meant to have a girl 🙂 (to be honest, though, I’m already 99% sure we did conceive another boy, despite everything! I will of course update when we know, but if we’re going on gut feeling, I’m going to have to say we got boy #6 rather than girl #1!!!)

I’m still pretty shocked.. but pretty excited!

Please keep in mind–swaying is NOT 100%. There’s no concrete proof that any of the above there actually did manage to help us conceive a girl. Of course, since it’s the first time I did it, I’d like to think it did.. but there’s really no way to tell. It could have just been our turn–or something completely unrelated!

Having said that–I do stress that the supplements and the diet (which drastically changed my pH and my husband’s pH) would probably be most imperative. I also think the B6 helped me in particular. I think EGS would have upped our chances a great deal, too!

For anyone trying this, please remember that even if you have the PERFECT sway, you may not end up having the boy or girl that you want. Even saying that, I still think you should put all your effort into doing it right because–to me, if that had resulted in another precious boy, I would have thought “well, I did everything I could do–I was just meant to have another precious boy”–but if I hadn’t suffered through the diet and supplements, (no need to lie about it–the diet was miserable!) I would have always thought “..what if”.

In the end, sway–and sway as hard as you can (while remaining healthy)–but don’t be crushed if it doesn’t work. The only guarantee is High Tech!

Good luck, everyone!

      Thank you! And it did 🙂 I’m just adding it because I’d forgotten to post it when we got our BFP! We just had an ultrasound confirming that we did, in fact, actually create a girl! hahah 🙂
