    Preparing to TTC girl, history of HG

    We successfully conceived our girl 2.5 years ago. My cycles have been regularly 29 days apart for the past 5 months, and we would like to begin TTC in 2-3 months. DS1 was a surprise baby, DS2 took 12 months to conceive, DD1 took 11 months but we had a miscarriage at 9 weeks 2 months prior, and DD2 took (surprisingly) 5 months and I was doing the LE diet.

    With all four, I had HG. I've been reading up on recommendations to take magnesium, b vitamins, vitamin d, liquid probiotics, and milk thistle prior and during TTC in hopes of lessening the severity of HG. Would adding these supplements sway one way or the other?

    I'm petite: 5'1", 104lb. Also breastfeeding multiple times a day/night still (have been for almost 8 years). I don't consume dairy or red meat currently, but am open to altering diet if need be.

    All those supplements have a strong potential to sway blue and I cannot recommend them for anyone who wants a girl.

    I would follow the type of diet you were on when you got your last girl!

    Okay, thank you for the advice!

    I have a couple more questions.

    As far as FR + 1 attempt goes (this is the most recommended to sway girl, yes?), can it either be husband releases on his own or we DTD together without attempting? We got impatient with our girl sways in the past and ended up doing 8 days in a row, most in fertile window, and ended up pregnant with baby girl #2.

    Are fruit + water/oat milk smoothies too nutrient dense for the LE diet? I honestly don't recall what my diet looked like last time. I eat a primarily fruit + veggie + whole grain diet currently, limited dairy and meats.

    FR has not been effective. It's fine to start off with it if you want but the real heavy hitter is the one attempt.

    You can absolutely do the FR with hubby releasing on his own or with you, with protection.

    Having unprotected sex many days in a row starting before the fertile window opens can in fact sway pink but it's just not the most reliable way, that's all.

    No those smoothies are fine provided the oat milk is not heavily fortified.

    Should we try something other than the FR with the one attempt? Is abstaining and then 1 attempt "better"?

    Also, thoughts on maca and/or ashwaganda in smoothies? They've been a staple for me, but would like to be as "pink positive" as possible.


    I have info from an app I used to track fertility and ttc attempts. Could I show you screenshots of these and get your take on if we were truly swaying girl, or if we were just lucky? Have this info for both DD1&2. Screenshot_20200812-085137.jpgScreenshot_20200812-085300.jpgScreenshot_20200812-085307.jpg

    Neither FR nor abstain has worked. Only the one attempt really seems to do anything. Most people want to start off trying one or the other of the FR/abstain, with the one attempt, to see if they can get pregnant that way.

    I would discontinue maca and ashwaganda in smoothies.

    I can't really see the apps very clearly. When I try to enlarge them on my screen they're getting blurry. I doubt they are telling me anything too important though. My advice would be very unlikely to change. If you feel the need you can send them to my email at atomicsagebrush@gmail.com (but this is not ever the best way to get ahold of me!)

    Okay, I guess I'm just confused what we/my husband should aim for in regards to releases prior to that one attempt (from the time of end of AF to before one attempt).

    I will send them to your email. I appreciate the feedback!

    I'm sorry. Emails are really hard for me as it's out of my norm so they can slip thru the cracks since they aren't in my daily schedule.

    I'll answer you there.
