It’s a Girl

Friday, January 7th, 2011 by:

I first wrote about the biorhythm gender prediction method in November 2009. We had decided to try for a third and since we already had two boys, we would have loved for our third child to be a girl.

Someone told me about, which believes that your hormones are linked to the polarity cycle of the ovum membrane in women.

We all have positive, negative and neutral charges that alternate monthly. Positive charges are likely to produce a girl, while negative are likely to produce a boy. When the charge is neutral, either sex has an equal chance.

I figured it was worth a try and I ordered a year long calendar to see which “girl” days coincided with my periods of fertility. No wonder, my side of the family always had boys. According to the calender, there were exactly two days out of the entire year where I would have a girl.

I didn’t know how much faith to put in the calendar but figured it was worth a try. Why not start trying to have a third on the only girl days of the year?

We got pregnant on a “girl day” but I was still certain I was having a boy. All the old wives tales pointed to it. I was carrying low and out, and my baby’s pulse was low. Almost everyone (including my OB-GYN and countless strangers) told me a boy was on his way.

Well, much to our surprise, we had a daughter in December. I can’t say for sure whether it was the chart or luck, but given the chance, I’d opt for the biorhythm method again.
