you can go to the doctor and get an ultra sound done to find out if its a boy or a girl, but you can not make the baby a girl if its a boy. just be thankful that the baby is healthy.

There is something called the Shettles Method. It basically says that the Y-chromosome carrying sperm are faster but don't live as long and the X-chromosome carrying sperm are slower but are better able to withstand the acidic cervical environment before fertile cervical fluid is produced. So if you are trying for a girl: you should *have intercourse 2-3 days before ovulation and avoid intercourse just before ovulation until 2 days after ovulation and when you have peak cervical fluid: The idea is that when you have sex a few days before ovulation, only the X-chromosome “girl sperm” will be left in the female reproductive tract waiting to fertilize the egg when it is released.
*Have intercourse with shallow penetration: Shettles recommends “missionary position”or any position that will deposit the sperm slightly away from the cervix, giving advantage to the longer living, but slower X-chromosome-carrying sperm.
*Women avoid orgasm: Shettles suggests women avoid orgasm because it makes the vaginal environment more alkaline, and less acidic and is disadvantageous to the X-chromosome “girl sperm”. If you are trying for a boy: *Time intercourse as close to ovulation as possible: The idea is that since the Y-chromosome sperm are faster than the X-chromosome sperm, there will be more Y-chromosome sperm who reach the egg, making it more likely that a Y-chromosome carrying sperm will fertilize the egg.
*Abstain from intercourse for four to five days prior to ovulation. *Have intercourse only just at the time of ovulation and just before.
*Have intercourse that allows for deep penetration. Shettles recommends rear-entry (aka, “doggy-style”). The idea is that the sperm will be deposited closer to the cervix where cervical fluid is most friendly to the Y-chromosome sperm and where the “boy sperm” are more likely to survive since there is less distance to travel.
*Men avoid tight clothes: heat kills off both types of sperm, but will kill off the less protected, smaller Y-chromosome sperm faster, according to Shettles.
*Women have an orgasm: According to Shettles, female orgasm increases the alkaline secretions in the vagina that are favorable to the Y-chromosome carrying sperm. Shettles recommends having an orgasm before or at the same time as the male partner.
I don't know if it really works, but it sounds like there is evidence that suggests it's true! Good luck :)

There are many wives' tales regarding this. Short of going to a doc to separate the sperm...I think that is called baby boutiquing...choosing the sex of the baby can be done in a lab...but then you have to IVF and all that.
allow God to give you the baby you are destined for...enjoy the boys.

not really, I have heard that veagans and vegetarians are more likely to have girls but its never been scientifically proven. I know a vegetarian and Veagan and both of them have had boys. There is always adoption. You could adopt a baby girl from China...

Many have ideas but nothing has been found to create what you want. A fertility specialist or OB/Gyn doctor may know of some tricks with science behind them, you never know.

No, apart from complicated fertility treatment that isn't legal in many countries.
