Conceiving a little boy is not always easy. You have tried and tried to create that sweet baby boy that you have always dreamed of, but have not had any success. You may have even visited a fertility specialist, but have been unable to become pregnant with a tiny bundle of blue joy.
It is important to understand that female chromosomes, also known as the (x) chromosomes are typically slower than male chromosomes, also known as (y) chromosomes. Although male chromosomes are faster than female chromosomes, they tend to be weaker and die more quickly than their female counterparts. These chromosomes are carried in your male partner’s sperm.
You naturally carry the (x) chromosome in your egg therefore your baby’s gender is determined by the chromosome type (x) or (y) fertilizes your egg. If an (x) chromosome penetrates and successfully fertilizes your egg, you will have a girl, but if a (y) chromosome penetrates and fertilizes your egg, you will have a boy. If you are trying to conceive a baby boy and you have tried other options to no avail, then you have come to the right place. This article will teach you natural, alternative ways to make your dream come true.
The following tips can help you conceive the little boy you always wanted:
- Consume a healthy diet: In order to conceive a little boy, you need to make sure that the male chromosomes (x) and (y) survive for as long as possible. First you need to lower your body’s pH level. It is important to maintain a low pH level with a slightly alkaline base because male chromosomes live longer in this type of environment. In other words, you need to make sure your body chemistry is not too acidic because high acid levels in the body can damage sperm and kill male chromosomes.
The best way to accomplish this task is to consume foods that contain high levels of sodium and potassium (apricots, figs, raisins, nuts, etc.) Steer clear high calcium foods like milk, yogurt and cheese. Moreover, vegetables contain a variety of vitamins and minerals so consuming these healthy foods can increase your chances of conceiving a little boy even more.
- Avoid having sex prior to ovulation: Abstain from having sexual intercourse at least 4 of 5 days before you ovulate. Research suggests that little girls are more often conceived when you and your partner have sexual intercourse before ovulation (before your egg has been released). It is important to remember that female (x) chromosomes are slower, but stronger than male (y) chromosomes so they have a greater chance of surviving past during and past ovulation. While the female (x) chromosomes are waiting for the release of your egg, the male (y) chromosomes have already perished.
- Have sex at the right time: To become pregnant with a baby boy, you will need to have sex several times during ovulation. In order to accomplish this task, you will need to calculate exactly when you are due to ovulate. You will more than likely ovulate between the 12th and 14th days of your 28-day monthly menstrual cycle. It is important to note that not all women have a 28-day cycle so your ovulation day may be earlier or later then the days listed above. Furthermore, make sure you have sex specifically on your ovulation day.
- Try deep penetration positions: It is important to have sex in positions that allow for deep penetration. The goal is to get your partner’s sperm as close to your egg as possible. Research suggests that sexual acts like the missionary or rear entry positions (doggie style) have the best success rates when it comes to conceiving a little boy. When the sperm, carrying the male chromosomes (x) and (y) are deposited closer to you egg, they do not have to travel as far, thus increasing your chances of conceiving a baby boy.
- Place a pillow under your back: Once your partner has ejaculated, place a small pillow under your lower back and lift your legs towards your head. This position will help your partner’s sperm travel more quickly towards your egg.
- Be patient: It is important to patiently wait to see if you are indeed pregnant. It should take approximately 14 days to determine if you are pregnant, but it may take as long as several weeks to make a conclusive determination. Generally, if you take a pregnancy test and it is positive then you are indeed pregnant.
Next you will need to patiently wait to see what sex your baby is. This may be the hardest part of the pregnancy journey for you. You will not be able to find out your baby’s gender until you are at least 16 or 17 weeks or more. If you accurately calculated your ovulation day and followed the suggestions listed in this article, you have a pretty good chance of getting that baby boy bundle of joy that you always dreamed of.
