Having a child is everyone’s dream. It is what makes a family complete. Without a child, your life as a couple would lack something because you won’t have someone to cheer you up or to support you when you grow old.
Yes, making a baby with your partner is human nature and completely normal. And based on researchers, there are more couples who prefer having a baby boy over a baby girl. Why? Well, that's their preference!
But how can you do it? I was surprised to know this for the first time. But yes, there are some things you can do to control the gender of your child by following a few tips! Read on to know how to conceive a baby boy. Trust me; you're going to have fun!
What You Need to Prepare?
1. Understanding of How Chromosomes Work
It’s important for you to understand how chromosomes work. When your partner ejaculates inside your vagina during intercourse, he secretes semen that contains sperm cells.
And these sperm cells are divided into two types, the ones that carry the X chromosome and those that carry the Y chromosome. It is these sperm types that determine the gender of your baby. When an X chromosome sperm fertilizes your egg cell, you’re going to conceive a baby girl.
On the other hand, if your egg cell is fertilized by a Y chromosome sperm, then you’re going to have a baby boy. Girl sperms are stronger, bigger than the boy sperms. But the boy sperms travel faster in reaching the egg cell.
2. Mental and Emotional Preparedness
Conceiving a baby, whether it be boy or girl, needs to have a great deal of mental and emotional preparedness. You need to expect that you're going to experience sudden changes in your body and you might be surprised to see it. Various studies have proved that there are a lot of women who undergo depression and sometimes even have lower self-confidence.
This is because they gain weight and their slim figure is lost. Though this doesn’t apply to everyone, I believe that us women should prepare our mind and our emotions to know that we need to sacrifice something for the sake of our babies. We might lose our sexy bodies, and we might get fat, but these are all temporary. And nothing compares to the thought of having a baby. It’s all about happiness, so cheer up, girl!
3. Physical Health
Being physically healthy is very important if you want to be pregnant. See to it that you eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Lower your fat and cholesterol intake and prevent from eating too many sweets.
You want to have a healthy diet because you're going to conceive a baby soon. Sleep early and also wake up early. See to it that you have at least 8 hours of sleep each night. And don't get too stressed about your work!
If possible, take a maternity leave three or even four months before your labor. You want to be at your peak health when the big day comes. Also, if you’re healthy, you’re more likely to have a normal delivery, which is cheaper than a Caesarian section delivery.
4. Financial Capability
Conceiving a baby boy/girl is one thing, and raising a child is another. Look at the distant future and realize that you need to have a stable source of income to ensure your child’s bright future. Based on statistics, you’re going to spend around $3,500 to $7,000 on child delivery. That surely is a hefty sum of money. So before you plan on having a baby boy, see to it that you have the money to pay for the expenses you’re going to face.
5. Cozy Place to Make Love
Of course, you’re going to do the deed in the ideal place, a place that’s comfortable and romantic at the same time. You want your partner to have a really hard penis so that you both have a great time while having intercourse. There are lots of ways to do that, but one of the best (and most basic) ones is by dimming the lights down.
This makes the ambiance of the room sexier and more romantic. Also, make sure that you've got a big bed. A queen-size bed will do, but if you got the extra cash, consider buying a king-size bed. This way, you'll have more space to move around as you experiment the different sex positions. The last thing you want is to fall from your bed while your partner drives hard on you, right?
The Step-by-Step Process
Step #1: Proper Diet
The first thing you need to do to conceive a baby boy is to have the proper diet. According to scientific studies, it’s found out that the food you eat and nutrition you get plays a huge role in determining the gender of your baby. You can increase the chances of conceiving a baby boy by prioritizing eating breakfasts. You should also consume around 2000 calories every day. Eat foods that are rich in potassium and sodium such as strawberries and banana. These minerals will are proven to increase the likelihood of you conceiving a baby boy.
Step #2: Lower Your Vagina's Acidity
The next thing you need to do is to lower your vagina’s acidity. Your vaginal environment is surrounding with very strong acid, and this acid can easily damage weak sperms. To lower it down, first, have a pH level acid test. You can do this by using pH strips. If the strips indicate that your acidity is high, then you need to lower it. The best way to lower down your acidity is to make changes in your diet. Eat foods that are not too acidic. Prevent from eating oranges, grapes, and lemon.
Step #3: Let Your Partner Wear the Right Underwear
The kind of underwear your partner is wearing affects their sperm production. To increase the chances of conceiving a baby boy, it’s important for your partner to ensure that their scrotum doesn’t get too warm. One way of doing that is by not wearing tight briefs. Instead, encourage your partner to wear boxer briefs or boxer shorts. This lets air easily flow around their scrotum, which then cools it down. Not only does this increase sperm production, but this also helps makes your partner’s sperm cells healthier. When this happens, their sperm has a higher chance of successfully making it to your egg cell.
Step #4: Have Sex As Close to Ovulation
Now, it's time for both of you to make love finally. It's highly recommended that you have intercourse when you're near your ovulation period. This makes it easier for the boy sperm to fertilize your egg cells, knowing that the distance is nearer. If you're going to have sex weeks before ovulation, it's likely that your partner's boy sperms may die off during its travel, knowing that your vaginal environment is acidic. Boy sperms are also weaker than girl sperms. So the easier the travel is, the more likely that the boy sperm can fertilize your egg cell.
Step #5: Proper Sex Positions
The number one rule when wanting to conceive a baby boy is to have a deep penetration intercourse. You can do this by following three sex positions that ensure the penis' deep penetration in your vagina. These positions are doggy style, standing up, and straddling. To do the doggy style position, you need to kneel with your hands on the bed. Then let your partner insert his penis from behind you. To do the standing position, you can lean on a wall and let your partner enter you while you face each other. Boys sperms can easily reach your egg cell because they’re lighter and have less resistance to gravity.
Then there’s the straddling sex position which is also called as the ride by some. All you have to do is to let your partner lie down at his back. You’re going to then insert his penis into your vagina by riding him. Not only is this the best position to make you feel good, but you also have full control over your partner, whether you like it fast or slow.
Step #6: Have an Orgasm Before Your Partner
Though this isn’t backed up by science, it’s still worthy to try it as this has been proven time and time again. It’s highly recommended for you to have an orgasm before your partner. This is because your vagina releases an alkaline secretion which makes it easier for the boy sperm to survive.
Most women might think that you have no way to control the gender of your baby when conceiving. You've read this article, and you now know that there are ways to conceive a baby boy. It might sound simple at first, but in reality, you need to do a lot of preparations. You also need to remember a lot of things while making love with your partner. Just take our advice and tips with a grain of salt, and you'll surely be carrying a baby boy in no time.
