Expert Recommended Tips on How to Have a Baby Girl Naturally

Updated on November 14, 2017

How to have a baby girl naturally is one question that could have been bothering parents like you who, after years of trying, still failed to conceive a daughter. Every child is a gift, and its gender should not always be that important. However, it is but normal to yearn for a girl, especially if you have one or two boys already. It is possible to choose baby gender, and there are indeed natural ways to get pregnant with a girl.

The X and Y Chromosomes

The male body has both the x and y chromosomes, while the female body only has the x chromosomes. During a sexual intercourse, only one of these chromosomes can unite with the ovarian egg to turn into a fetus. If the y chromosome gets to the egg first, a male fetus will develop. On the other hand, if it is the x chromosome that beats all the others, a girl baby will be formed. In this case, how to have a baby girl naturally is dependent on the success of the x chromosome in fertilizing the egg. It is also a must that you are both physically and mentally ready to conceive a child to support healthy fetal development.

Timing is Everything

Fertilization occurs when a sperm meets with the egg during ovulation. But it does not mean that you should "get busy" right when the egg cell becomes available. The x sperms, or the sperms that produce baby girls, can live in the fallopian tube for up to 5 days. The y sperms die sooner. In this case, a couple who wish to have a baby girl naturally should make love at least 48 hours before ovulation.

A woman will know that she is nearing ovulation by using an ovulation kit, or by examining her vaginal discharge—when her cervical mucus is creamy. Cervical mucus can change in texture throughout a woman’s menstrual cycle. Creamy cervical mucus favors the x sperms, while egg white cervical mucus favors the y sperms. Making love when the cervical mucus is creamy increases the chances of getting pregnant with a girl. It will also help to do it in the afternoon to give the x sperms the warm temperature they need.

What to Eat to Have a Baby Girl

One important thing to know about when trying to get pregnant with a girl is that the x chromosome can survive in an acidic environment, while the y chromosome will perish instantly. Eating high acid foods can help weaken the y chromosome, thus the more chances for the x chromosome to make it to the egg cell first. Moreover, foods that are rich in calcium and magnesium but low in potassium and sodium can help the egg cell attract the x chromosome better. Check out more information on baby girl diet.

How to Have a Girl Baby Sexual Positions

The x chromosome is slower than its male counterpart but has a longer survival period. Due to this reason, sexual positions that will require deeper thrusts are a no no. This will only enable the y chromosome to reach the egg sooner. The missionary position—the woman lying on her back with the man on top, is said to be the best for couples who want to have a baby girl. See a list of other recommended sexual positions here.

NOTE: The baby will grow inside you for 9 months so you must prepare your body for it. Prenatal workout can help you to easily get through the hurdles of pregnancy. But of course, it is always smart to consult a specialist to know which practices are best for your health and of the child you will conceive.

      Every child is a gift, I agree my husband and I have 2 amazing boys right now 11 and 7 and a little girl would be amazing esp. since I am the only woman in the house. After 2 failed past pregnancies this year we are looking into everything. But no matter the outcome that baby will be loved none the less. Living on hope and faith that I can become pregnant this year and hopefully a sister and daughter would be nice but not expected.
