Forum home Getting pregnant Trying to conceive

Old wives tales welcome!!

Hi there

My husband and i are trying soon for another baby, now i have 2 boys and 1 girl so we would like another girl!! has anyone any tips for improving the chances of conceiving a girl!!

We obviously wouldn't mind a boy!! what ever we get we know we would be blessed.

But if we could encourage the little girl gene swimmers!! then great!!

Many thanks.


  • Hi,

    Not sure how true it is but I have heard that the male sperm are much better swimmers than the female ones but that they don't live as long so you are better to try a couple of days before ovulation to give the ladies a chance to get there!

    Hope this helps, good luck!!
