Trying to conceive a BABY GIRL (TTC)? Consider these 4 tips.

Did you know that sperm carrying the X chromosome are slower swimmers than sperm carrying the Y chromosome? That means that the sperm with the X chromosome travel more slowly to the egg (ovum) and stay viable longer than sperm carrying the Y chromosome. In order to increase your chances of conceiving a baby girl, you will need to be in conditions that favour the slow X sperm swimmer.

So, take a look at these little tricks to increase your chances:

1️⃣ Eat magnesium rich foods: old wive’s tale suggests that eating foods high in magnesium will create an acidic breeding ground (uterus) for the X chromosome (female sperm) to thrive. Male sperm will less likely survive the acidic environment.

2️⃣ Have him take a bath first: the male sperm doesn’t thrive well with heat, so men taking a bath before sex might weaken the Y chromosome carrying sperm.

3️⃣ Missionary style: is a shallow penetration position during sex, which makes it perfect for the long lasting, slow and steady female sperm swimmers to get to the ovum.

4️⃣ Sex before ovulation: sex 2 to 4 days before ovulation will increase your chance of conceiving a baby girl because the X carrying sperm are stronger and swims slower. It will most likely survive while waiting for ovulation.

Try the above simple tips to increase your odds of conceiving a baby girl. However, there are no guarantees, so while you are trying to conceive, make the experience fun and enjoyable.
