    To get pregnant you must have sex on a day that your eggs are being released.

    After the 3rd day from the day that menses started put a thermometer into your mouth and check your body temperature every morning before you start turning in bed. The best time is at about 4 a.m. Maintain a chart. You will find that on one day the body temperature drops from 1/2 degree to one degree. This is the day that your eggs are being released. If you want to get pregnant this is the day that you must have sex. Tell your husband to ejaculate on his inward thrust so that the sperms will shoot deep inside.

    After having sex you must stay in bed for about 30 mins with your knees bent up with a pillow under your buttocks so that the sperms will not pour out - to enable them to travel up.

    Get your husband to save his sperms in the testacles for at least 3 days before sex to enable them to mature well to do their job.

    An ultrasound tech once told me that to have a boy, you should have sex on the day of ovulation. The egg will be more accessible by the male sperm, and he won't have to fight so hard to reach it. Male sperm tend to die off after the first day, so they may never reach their target (the egg). Female sperm on the other hand will survive for days, and are much more determined to reach the egg. So even if you have sex a day or two before ovulation, the female sperm will keep swimming until they've found the egg - even if it was not as accessible as it would have been during ovulation.

    God only knows - - this particular ultrasound tech was a pain in the neck (we didn't ask her for advice on conceiving - she just gave it to us!).

    to me there's no way for you to determine whether you gonna have a boy or a girl. but keep in mind that the sex of the baby is determine by the father's chromosome. female produce xx and male produce XY. But believe me it doesn't matter if you have a boy or a girl. what matters most is that they are healthy. and whether a boy or a girl they're special in their own way.

    i heard that if you want a girl you should take a glass of water and mix in a table spoon of vinegar. female sperms love this acidity and the males die off. you should use a siringe and put it up there when you trying to conceive.

    Your husband's genes determine the gender of the baby.
