I am continually amazed by the lengths people will go to in order to attempt to preselect the sex of their unborn children, and I won’t lie: I think it’s a little too controlling and definitely slightly weird. An acquaintance of mine wanted a girl so badly that she would only have missionary style sex during ovulation, would try her very hardest not to have an orgasm, and afterwards would lay with her legs sticking straight up, all because some …
… website said that was the best way to ensure a girl.
She did end up with a girl and swears that all the kooky things she did made her little female one possible. Me, I doubt that. I think it was a happy coincidence.
If only she had been aware of a recent Dutch study that selected 32 woman to eat a “little girl diet” rich in fruits in vegetables, she probably would have taken advantage of that, too. The test women ate foods like feta salad, veggie stews, and rice. Foods with high levels of potassium like bananas and potatoes, that is believed to lead to boys, were greatly restricted.
Out of the 32 woman only 6 of them conceived boys and 26 had girls. Can you believe that!?
Apart from eating a strict diet, the woman were asked to attempt to conceive during a certain point of ovulation. Researchers believe that the diet played a more crucial part in the outcome of the sex of these woman’s babies.
I’d say the results of this study are astounding, to say the least. If you’re in the market for a baby girl, forget the age old myth of drab missionary sex, start chowing down on some fruits and veggies – but avoid those potatoes like the plague, ladies.
