    JM, I always thought that too but when I started paying attention to what my body was doing and counting cycle days, I realised that even with a longer cycle, counting back 14 days put my Oing after the EWCM, so I tracked it for a few months and it stayed spot on to that.

    My DH was working in a cool room butchering when we had all 3 boys and we DTD right on O (3rd time was accidental as we were gender swaying but my body decided to O early...). Maybe you need to put some ice packs in your DH's jocks
    There is also theory of a good strong coffee right before DTD to give the swimmers a boost among others. I gave my book away but if you want I can get one for you and post it over. I do believe the methods have merit because in hindsight they have worked for us if we look back at when each child was conceived. Getting the timing right at the important stage is the hard part I think

    So i am concluding that each pregnancy is a 50-50 chance then! Might just skip the testing and get straight to the shagging then.

    I dtd pretty much around ovulation with all three of my boys... As far as I know, you need to be well away from Ovulation to have a girl...

    Good luck, girl or boy, they are all beautiful!! :-)

    Swaying is hard work if you do all the swaying factors. I was desparate for a little girl which is why I tried absolutely everything I could to get one, but it still didnt work. I honestly thought if I swayed that hard I was guaranteed to get a girl. Obviously, that isnt the case.

    Glad to hear you arent taking it too seriously.

    Good luck catching a little blue spermy.

    Yeah DG- if we have another girl, that's cool with me. Either way, we'd like 4 kids, so i still get another shot! Although i am yet to wrangle 3 so things might change.
