Diet when TTC

The plans for trying for a daughter are well on the way. This week I have been looking at diet!

According to various research studies you can alter the Ph of your CM to encourage either male or female sperm once they have, ahem, arrived... More acidic CM is better for your chances of catching with a girl, alkaline cm will encourage boy sperm.

And the best bit? You can do this and still eat a HEALTHY diet! YAY!

So... according to the sites I've listed below if I want to up my chances of my fourth and final baby being a girl I need to include these in my diet:

  • Fruit juice
  • Grains
  • Pasta
  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Chicken
  • Shellfish
  • White Bread
  • Tea & Coffee
  • Pickles
  • Citrus Fruits

And avoid things like:

  • Bananas
  • Potatoes
It's a shame that there seems to be some disagreement over broccoli, spinach and almonds because I like all of those things. Some sites say they are good for a girl, some say they are good for a boy! But since broccoli is high in folic acid I'll keep on eating it.

I still have a way to go before we start TTC this time round. I start my 2nd packet of the pill on Monday (1 down, 2 to go). Plenty of time to adjust my diet without causing any problems to me or my family. I like that it's coming up to summer soon when we tend to eat more grains and pasta than potatoes anyway, and citrus fruits become that bit more appealing when it's sunny so I should be able to swap the boy-enhancing apples and bananas for girl-friendly oranges and grapefruit without any grumbles (I'll still get them in for the kids lunches, just not so many).

It would be AWESOME if I could get a girl just by changing what I eat! (well, ok, not JUST but you get what I mean)

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
