    That's so true. Guessing here is almost never only for fun. I hope you get your boy Jconger.

    There is a lot of difference in scan quality also. Ik had a scan with my OB new machine and the images were so clear. It was amazing. You could count fingers and toes and see do much detail.

At 12 weeks straight up this process is somewhat underway but is not reliable to spot it on ultrasounds. There are a FEW babies, a minority, where you can see a ding-a-ling at 12 weeks. Most are not visible till the end of the 12th, even into the 13th week. I have seen some boys who I would have sworn were girls even at the end of the 13th week.

    And you donít believe in the skull theory right? The only thing you really go off of is the nub?

    I believe skull theory is possible (males and females do have differences in that regard) but it's too unreliable and the individual genetic variations and what the ultrasound tech has focused in on for me to feel comfy giving guesses on that basis very often.

    Ok Atomic, if and only if I was truly crazy enough to try ONE more time what would you have me do differently? I mean try for once lol. I just still canít believe it hasnít happened. Iíve always been a big lifter and not a lot of cardio... I feel like even though we didnít get to sway I had made all of those changes for months before we fell pregnant. With Finley (our 3rd) you really felt we had a good sway. Maybe i am just destined to be a girl only mom... but wanted your thoughts. I just canít believe Iím here again for the 5th time thinking ďletís try one more time! Heís gotta be in thereĒ lol. Thank you

    Tell me everything you did with what you consider your best sway and I'll tell you what, if anything to tweak. This time you really didn't get a chance!

    Ok I gained 4lbs, continued to lift heavy, no cardio. We dtd like every day for 5 days. Never did that before around ovulation. Maybe we had a cut off? I know Friday was our last day of dtd. Sunday I had a positive opk. I wasnít planning to ovulate until that following weds or Thursday. I had never ovulated that early before. We did use lubricant and Iíve always gotten up immediately following bding.

    I cut the products out that you encouraged me to stop except 1/2 spark. Increased whole milk products and red meat. No meds or anything.

    Maybe my hubby has low testosterone? Would that sway? He switched from putting his laptop on his lap to a lap desk.

    Iím not sure what else? Maybe we only make girls.

    I thought you were crazy to have five when we were trying for our third lol. Now here I am being crazy enough to think about a sixth! Maybe i just need to let go of this dream.

    When were the days of BD in relation to when you think you ovulated?

    What lubricant?

    Let's stay laying down 30 min. after sex next time.

    Low testosterone may sway but we'll focus on what we CAN fix!

    How long at a time were you lifting and how many days per week?

    It's such a hard call to make to keep trying or not. I obviously got what I wanted, but not gonna lie, it was a hard road for a few years there (and my oldest two sons are significantly older, we had them when we were extremely young and then took a break for many years before we added the little ones). We're only just now coming out of the level of work and financial struggle of it all. At the same time, I knew some people from my time on InGender who decided to be done with their boys and move on, and they were posting pictures of margaritas on beaches and their fun family vacations and I have to admit it did make me question sometimes "did I really do the right thing". Obviously I would not trade my daughter ever, but it did come at a cost that everyone in the family had to pay, not just me. Less mom time, less money, less space in the house, etc.

    I don't say this to deter anyone, but just to remind you guys that even when the dream does come true it's not without its drawbacks.

    Well I thought I wasnít going to ovulate for another 6 days or so from our last bd. We bded every day for 5 days and then last time was Christmas (Friday). I first took a opk and it was positive Sunday night. I usually ovulate 36 hours or so after first positive but who knows if that would have been Saturday if I had taken it sooner?

    This goes back to the timing thing... Iíve never waited 24 hours after a positive opk... which then makes me think timing might work

    And itís so tough. Four is a lot and I never thought about five until I saw several people I know have the opposite gender at five. We were done with three so five is going to be insane... Iím looking at all of these people on Instagram making me think maybe we try one more time. We are already way in over our heads... i donít know.
