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.
