Nothing brings more joy than a baby boy, as they say and as a mother to a beautiful son I can certainly believe that. In fact when trying to choose the gender of your child, more people try to get pregnant with a boy than with a girl. So if you would like to know when should you try to conceive a boy baby then this article will help you plan the right time.
Probably the most well known method of sex selection is the Shettles Method. The Shettles Method claims over 85% success rate for conceiving a boy. (The success rate for getting a boy using the Shettles Method is much higher for a boy than a girl).
Dr Shettles discovered that the male decides what sex your baby is going to be. If the sperm carrying an X chromosome reaches the egg and fertilizes it, then you’ll get a little girl. If the Y chromosome sperm fertilizes the egg then your little baby will be a boy.
If you’ve done any research about how to conceive a baby boy then you’ll know it’s a lot about timing ovulation and altering the pH of the vagina to help the male sperm to reach the egg first. But what I bet you didn’t know is there are things that the Shettles method recommends that the father must do as well. This article will show you the three main things that the father can do to help you get that baby boy.
Keep the Boys Cool
And by ‘boys’ I mean his testicles. (But I’m sure you knew that already). You see the temperature of your man’s testes is important for optimum potency of his sperm. And since the male chromosome sperm is not as strong as the female chromosome sperm you need to do everything you can to make sure that as many of them live as possible.
So that means that he must not take hot showers or baths. And he should wear boxer shorts instead of briefs as this keeps the testicles away from the body, lowering the temperature of his ‘boys’ by a few degrees.
You might have heard many old wives tales about eating certain foods can influence the chances of having either a boy or girl baby, but is it true? Can certain foods really influence the chances of conceiving a boy or girl?
Actually there is some science behind this because there are foods that can change the composition of the cervical fluid and pH of the vagina, and that in turn can help or hinder either the male or female sperm from reaching the egg first.
For getting boy babies, you want to try and make your cervical fluid to a low pH level (or alkaline levels) to help the Y chromosome sperm (for a male) reach the egg first.
