While some couples are completely fine with any gender they conceive, some would like to have a say on their child’s gender. Having boys is a fun way to carry on your family name…and also end up in the ER a time or two from boys doing what boys do best – breaking things. Another fun thing about having a baby boy is dressing them in baby boy outfits Parents want to have both male and female children and after having a daughter once, or a number of times, it is understandable that you want a boy next. For couples who really want to have a baby boy, here are 5 ways you can go about it.
1. With science or not
In order to conceive a baby boy, it is essential to learn the way to body chooses a gender during the reproduction process. This can be done with scientific studies in a scientific lab. Or according to writer Laura Davis, you can follow your intuition to predict this. According to Davis, in order to conceive a male child, you have to choose the right ovary.
2. Choose an ovary
Writer Laura Davis stated in her book that the right ovary produces a male child. The ovary on the right side produces male children while the left ovary produces female children so for a woman who desires a male child, it is important that the woman often lies on her right side.
When inseminated, it is advisable that the woman often lies on her right side for a long period of time in order for gravity to take the ovum to the right side of the fallopian tube.
3. Debilitate yourself
According to writer Henri Medile Gourrier, debilitating oneself plays a big part in conceiving a baby boy. That is, if the male parent possesses signs of debility, a male child will be easily produced. So in order for a father to have a male child, he must become feeble. According to Gourrier, to show debility signs, the father should eat light meals such as lean meat, lots of vegetables, pastries, fruits, water, and light tea. Taking on lots of exercises and warm baths, in the 19th century can also boost symptoms of feebleness.
4. Don’t expect too much from Dad
According to Simon Newcomb, the sex of a child is not determined by a sudden event or decision. Instead, it is based on unplanned reoccurrences in the body. This goes on until it gets to a point which determines the gender of a child. Based on statistical data, in the reproduction process, fathers are completely asexual; hence the sex of a child is determined by the mother. Due to this, fathers cannot be blamed for the lack of a male child.
According to Percy John McElrath, producing a son involves rupturing the Graafian follicle which is in the ovary, early. In order to rupture it early, a properly timed orgasm is necessary. This is because in order for a male to be produced, the sperm must get to the ovum fast in order to avoid getting older and produce female children. Hence inseminating at the point when the female orgasm will rupture the Graafian follicle is essential.
