Steps To Conceive A Girl
Method One - Shettles Method1.Determine the time of your ovulation. One way to do this is to chart your cervical mucus daily. Just before ovulation, cervical mucus is watery and elastic, with the consistency of a raw egg white.
By charting your cervical mucus for one full month, you should be able to pinpoint exactly when you are ovulating. (Shettles recommends sexual intercourse up to 3 days before ovulation in order to increase your odds of conceiving a girl.)

2.Use a basal body thermometer (BBT) to chart your temperature every day. Shettles recommends taking your temperature before you get up each morning, and being extremely careful to lie as still as possible, as any activity can give you an inaccurate reading. The reason for the temperature charting is that at the time you begin to ovulate, your temperature will spike
3.Use an ovulation predictor kit. These kits will detect when your body has released Luteinizing hormone (LH), which is a precursor to ovulation; which is most likely to start about 24 hours after you get a positive reading for LH
4.Monitor the frequency and timing of intercourse. The Shettles Method is based on the fact that the Y chromosome (boy) sperm are smaller and less robust, but move faster than the larger X chromosome (girl) sperm. Therefore, having intercourse further away from ovulation will favor the slower moving X (girl) sperm.
5.Have gentle sex and avoid orgasm. Shallow penetration is more likely to deposit the sperm closer to the entrance of the vagina, which is more acidic than the area near the cervix. The theory is that the acidity will weaken the Y (boy) sperm while allowing more X (girl) sperm available for egg fertilization.
The female body produces a substance after orgasm that make the vagina more alkaline, which favors the Y (boy) sperm.
The contractions produced during an orgasm will help propel the sperm up and into the cervix, which gives the Y (boy) sperm the advantage.
Method Two - Calcium and Magnesium Diet1.Know that diet may play a vital role in selecting the sex of your baby. Some research from Maastricht University in the Netherlands suggests that diet can influence whether you have a girl or a boy, although the research is doubted by some. Specifically, researchers say that a diet of magnesium and calcium may be helpful in conceiving a girl.
2.Eat plenty of calcium and magnesium. Diets rich in calcium and magnesium may increase the alkalinity of the mother, which may not be as hospitable for male sperm.
Foods rich in calcium and magnesium include:
3.Avoid salt and potassium, which may create hospitable environments for male sperm. The following foods should be put on the no-no list if you're adhering to the calcium and magnesium diet:
Method Three - Ericsson Method1.Understand the Ericsson method. Dr. Ronald Ericsson based his gender selection method on the idea that X-sperm (female sperm) swim slower than Y-sperm. Sperm are deposited into a column with albumin, a glue-like substance, and start swimming down the column. After a while, the idea is that the Y-sperm will have traveled further down the column than the X-sperm, and X-enriched sperm can be isolated. The X-enriched sperm are then used to inseminate the mother.
2.Find a doctor who practices the Ericsson method. Check with your local fertility doctor about the Ericsson method, and whether they know any practitioners. Although many fertility doctors don't support the Ericsson method because it isn't backed up by widespread scientific support, you should be able to find a practitioner.
3.Expect to pay anywhere from $500 to $1,000 for the Ericsson method. Although this isn't cheap, it's far cheaper than IVF and methods like Microsort.
Method Four - Chinese Birth Calendar1.Use the Chinese Lunar Birth calendar. While not scientific, some parents and even some doctors, recommend following the Chinese Lunar Birth calendar. According to this ancient mystical calendar, the gender of a baby is determined by the mother’s age and the month in which she conceives. A simplified example would be if a woman is 25, she should try to conceive in the months of January, April, May or July.
2.Determine the days on which conception would produce a girl. The Chinese birth chart is determined by the mother's age and the month of conception, so figure out how old you are and which month on the lunar calendar would produce a girl.

Tips To Conceive A Girl1.Buy the book, “ How to Conceive of Your Baby Gender ” by Ashley Spencher and David Rorvik, to get the full details. The authors claim that the Shettles method gives couples at least a 75 percent success rate when choosing the gender of their baby.
2.Basal body thermometers and ovulation predictor kits can be purchased at your pharmacy or online.
3.In Vitro Fertilization is the most reliable gender predictor because only the embryos of the desired gender are transferred to the uterus. It is a very costly procedure.
