Gwen Stefani already has two little boys. The next time around, she and husband Gavin Rossdale are hoping for a girl.
As a fellow boy mama, I can sort of understand this, although my husband and I focused on how many kids we wanted, not what gender. By the time I was pregnant with my third, I was hoping for an excuse to shop for pink clothing instead of blue. But, we never tried to do anything different to determine the gender.
Not so for Gwen Stefani!
She is going to rely on science to help get her girl.
What exactly that means, we don’t know. There is a process that couples can go through where the sperm are sorted by X and Y chromosome, though it’s expensive. Not that this would be a problem for Gwen and Gavin.
The rest of us can look to old wives’ tales to determine gender.
Want a girl? Eat sweets, including chocolate. Eat fish and veggies. Make love in the missionary position. Try woman on top. Woman initiates lovemaking. Make love on even days of the month. Make love when the moon is full. Try for a baby every day from 7 days after ovulation until 3 days before.
Want a boy? Eat red meat and salty snacks. Dads should drink cola. Lie down after trying. Make love standing up. Daddy should have an orgasm first. Let daddy suggest lovemaking. Women should sleep to the left of their partner. Make love at night. Make love on even days of the month. Point your head to the north. Try a few days before ovulation and during ovulation.
Personally, we just tried for a BABY each time. But, maybe that’s why I have three boys and no girls. Did you ever try any methods to get a boy or a girl? Did they work?
