    Pinkin2019 TTC a GIRL Sway Attempt

    TTC a Girl Sway Attempt
    Gender Result:
    GIRL!!!!
    DW Age:
    34
    DH Age:
    34
    Current Children's Gender(s)
    Girl, boy, boy
    Number of Months TTC
    3
    Did you purchase and follow a GD Personalized Plan?
    Yes
    DIET
    Did you follow a diet plan?
    Yes
    If yes to diet, which one did you most follow?
    • LE(Low Everything)


    Comments regarding DW's diet changes-
    I went to a pescetarian diet in January, so 9 months before attempts started, then dropped to vegetarian 4 months out, but after losing too much weight I added back in a bit of fish here and there. During the 2ww I also cheated with a meal of a little bit of chicken.
    I started out keeping track of calories and protein and fat but I got so skinny that I ended up just sticking to my three meals a day with no snacking and eating until I felt full enough at those three meals. I also added in coffee (3 a day) and alcohol (once a day) which was totally new for me.
    If diet was used, length of time before attempt?
    4 months of LE diet before first attempt, but close to 7 months before bfp.
    Did you skip breakfast regularly?
    Yes
    Did DH change his diet with you?
    Yes
    Comments regarding DH's diet-
    Initially he didn’t change his diet but went vegetarian for the last 2-3 months, only eating a bit of fish if I included it our dinner every so often.
    He was probably drinking too much at the time, 4-5 drinks a night some weeks.
    He included soy milk most days for 10 months and OLE for about 6 months.
    DId you consume alcohol?
    • Often- daily


    DId you try to limit caffeine?
    No, I drink caffeine regularly
    Any Diet Details?
    I took up coffee drinking from never having the stuff, to having 3 cups a day. I enjoyed that extra energy, I have to say! And I never liked alcohol but added in 1 drink a day.
    I started out good with the LE diet but after I got down to 48kg I decided to just stick to three meals a day, no snacking (which was so hard to start with!), and not count my calories and fat etc.
    I binged on chocolate a bit too much at my dinner meal sometimes, I’m talking sometimes a whole block!!! because I was just so gosh darn hungry. And still, I continued to drop weight until I was nearly 46kg. I’m thankful I got pregnant when I did because I just couldn’t keep losing weight on a diet any more.
    Any Diet Comments/Additional Info?
    I cut out foods I would normally eat - oats, onions, garlic, cereal, celery. I drank almond milk and rice milk instead of cow milk. And cut back on eggs and nutrient-dense foods like spinach.
    I found it hard on the diet to start with, especially no snacking, but got used to it. I tried to push breakfast out to 9.30-10am each day (we had dinner at 5pm each night, so it was about a 17-hour fast). I see a lot of ladies go until midday before eating though, so I feel nervous about that.
    I got used to eating less but I looked terrible for it! Too skinny.
    WEIGHT AND EXERCISE
    What did you weigh/BMI do leading up to O?
    47kg/BMI 17.26 - eek!
    Any Weight/Exercise related additional info/comments?
    I did 50-60 minutes of walking 6 days a week. Sometimes it was 4 or 5 days but mostly it was 6 days.
    THINGS in VG and CONCEPTION DATE(CD) INFO
    pH Before Starting a Sway Program, if known
    No idea
    Any VG potions used?
    • Sylk


    CM pH at attempt
    -
    DH pH
    -
    How many BD attempts did you make for the BFP cycle?
    1
    BD Dates according to Ovulation
    • 3 Days Before O


    Any additional comments?
    DH had been doing frequent release, I think for just over a week. Hubby had a hot bath before the attempt, and I had a shower. We used a bit of Sylk as lube. I jumped and dumped after 5 minutes.
    I was on clomid and we dtd as my husband was going away. However, two days later my dr cancelled the cycle because there were 3 follicles... it was a nervous few weeks after the bfp to see how many were in there! But just the one.
    THE DEED INFO
    DH Info about Swimmers
    • Frequent Release


    BD Position
    Missionary
    Did you Jump and Dump?
    • Yes


    Any relevant attempt details?
    -
    SUPPLEMENTS USED
    DW Supplements
    • Clomid
    • folic acid
    • Fiber


    DH Supplements
    -
    Any additional supplement info?
    DH had soy milk and OLE daily.
    Did you do anything with Ions?
    No. Although I had a bracelet with rose quartz on it I wore sometimes. And where I walked was beside running water.
    Moon Phase during conception?
    Waning Crescent
    Did you use any Old Wives Tales?
    No.
    Things that make me feel great about my sway:
    I lost a lot of weight - about 6kg - which was heaps off my already small frame. (I did not like it.)
    I took up coffee and alcohol.
    I was pretty good with my exercise most days. Very different for me!! I normally do zero exercise.
    I stuck to no snacking and three meals. I pushed out breakfast as far as I could. All big changes from my usual lifestyle.
    Things that make me nervous about my sway:
    That I ended up not keeping track of my intake. Those chocolate binges!
    That I couldn’t push my first meal out to lunchtime, like I see many swayers do.
    That I’ve had a boy on clomid before (but was not swaying.)
    That I had far too much CM, inexplicably.
    That I just ‘feel’ this is another boy.
    Things worth mentioning:
    I made a lot of big changes and feel I did as best I could in many ways. If I hadn’t lost too much weight I could’ve stuck to the limits of the diet better.

    I am in shock!! I just got my results back and I’m so, so happy and lucky to be able to say we are having a girl! I’m so very grateful to Atomic for all the advice and for this site. I really didn’t think I would get lucky and going by my symptoms I was 99% sure it would be a boy. But Atomic was right - symptoms don’t mean jack Forever grateful and man, the hunger and getting my butt out to exercise was totally worth every minute. (Not saying anyone should be hungry - just that even well over the calories limits I was still hungry...!)
    Can’t believe it and even now doubting my midwife gave me the right results, haha.
    I wish everyone the best of luck on their journeys x

    Just thought of a couple of things I forgot to mention.

    I went on the contraceptive pill at the start of the year, 9 months out from first ttc.

    I swapped olive oil and butter for canola oil and margarine.
