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)

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
