Boy or girl - nature or manmade

Postby Angelight » Tue Nov 02, 2010 6:39 pm

Just curious - is it true that having son or daughter can be 'manipulated' through the food we consume, our lifestyle and even the positions we make love, instead of an act of God?

I'm asking this cos some couples seem to have all boys, some all girls and a rare few were lucky to have boys and girls.

Any mummies and daddies would like to share?

Except in very rare circumstances, it is completely random. And no, you can't influence with diet, lifestyle, time of day, standing up whilst engaging in the act, etc....

For me, this should be pure act of God.

Hmmm...then I guess those books on teaching couples how to conceive a boy or girl is just a pack of untruths. :P

We should know what is the percentage of success by using the theory. If it is low then is it just coincident :)

It's rare to have boys and girls :? Are you sure ? I took a moment to look around my circle of friends and relatives, and conclude about equal for all :D

I read some years ago they tried in Japan using centrifugal equipment to attempt segregating the X from the Y, one is supposedly heavier, hence the attempt, but not sure any success story or not

Trying to play God may be

It's fengshui.

If you want a boy and a girl, you should move to Bishan. In our circle of friends in the neighbourhood, we all have a boy and a girl. :wink:
