Last time I have shared some tips on how to conceive a baby boy. Now let me share with you how to conceive a baby girl. I got these when I was on my early stage of pregnancy trying to guess what the gender of my baby might be.

It is not a hundred percent sure but as long as it is not harmful you have nothing to loose. smile


1. Know the Shettles Method - According shettles method for to be able to conceive for a baby girl, you should have to sex two to four days before ovulation.

2. No Orgasm - It is claimed that avoiding orgasm may be the key to conceiving a girl. The female orgasm releases alkaline secretion which may help boy sperm to survive longer by creating less hostile environment. Without these secretions, boy sperm may find it harder to survive and less chance of reaching the egg.

3. More Sex -  When trying to conceive for a girl, you should have to aim more sex. More often sex will reduce sperm count, meaning less fast swimming boy sperm available.

4. Veg out - According to study, eating fruit and vegetable can improve your chances of conceiving a girl. Specially if you eat foods such as spinach, nuts and broccoli.


5. Low salt - A low salt diet is also said to improve your chances of conceiving a girl.

Have you been wondering before if there is anyway you can conceive a baby boy? Or have been wishing that you conceive for a baby boy?
Well here are some information that might help you on conceiving a baby boy. 

Note: These information are all based on scientific reasoning.


1. Have an Alkali rich diet -  having an alkali diet favors the sperms carrying Y chromosomes ( Y sperms are responsible for having a baby boy). And hence maintaining a high ph in your body helps the Y sperms to stay longer and swim faster.

There are several foods like banana redmeat etc. which contains a lot of sodium and potassium, it helps to keep the Ph level high which is required for having a baby boy.

2. Choose the intercourse position carefully - It doesn't occur all the time to all of us. It says that rear entry position helps to deposit the sperm as close as possible to the entry of cervix, so that the Y sperms has to cover a less distance and gets a head start.


3. Ask your partner to have coffee - Even though this has not been tested scientifically, many women have vouched the fact that it helps to conceive a boy. It is says that caffeine possibly helps sperm in some way.

4. Keep your partner away from heat - The Y sperms do not perform well and tends to die in heat. So it would be better, if your better half can wear boxers during conception period. It's also recommended to avoid hot bath for the same reason.

As a mother of two girls, I love dressing my own children and what I the most is whenever I put some pair of earrings on them. But usually for toddlers and young children. Earrings can easy get loss specially those ear stud type of earrings.

I even tried loop earrings on them but they still loosing it.

As we get older, it is getting harder to get fit. It is getting harder to maintain those flat abs.

And our then flat abs usually replaced with big belly.

So let me share with you a 10 minute abs workout and let us get back to our old sexy abs.

As a kid, we are use to watch Sesame street, Bananas in Pajamas and whatever kids program that is being aired in our country during our own time.

But during our kids time, I think they are starting to discover  their very own TV program which is quietly as entertaining and educational as the TV programs that we knew.

During your pre-natal period, you might be having few things in mind that you might be uncomfortable to ask with your ob-gyne. What would that be?

Related to that, here are some questions that a new mom might ask:

1. Will I poop during my delivery?

That is actually possible and it happens a lot since the rectum is already underneath the uterus during your last phase of pregnancy but you shouldn't really have to worry about your bowel during your delivery. The people on the delivery room are all professionals and respect privacy and they are there to support you. So you have to focus on your baby and not on your bowel during your delivery. 

2. Will I get stretched out down there?


The answer is no. Your vagina is made to stretch to accommodate childbirth and then contract backto its normal size. Your vagina has a muscle memory and it is highly recommended to do some kegel exercises in sets of 10, four to five times daily pospartum.

3. Would I still be able to control my bladder after pregnancy?
 
Bladder control will tend to decrease after pregnancy and childbirth but doing some kegel exercise will also help.

4. Can I have sex during pregnancy?


Yes. Most are afraid to do this because they are afraid to hurt the mom or the baby but having sex during pregnancy won't hurt the mom or the baby. 

5. Why is intercourse more painful after giving birth?


There are some trauma that needs to heal and for breastfeeding moms, hormone level changes too. especially estrogen levels which may lead to problems with lubrication.

They say education is one of the best thing we can give to our children. As a parent it is our obligation to send our children to schools and give them right and proper education. We always wanted to make sure that our children is learning things they should have to learn in school.

But it is also part of our role as a parent to make sure that it would be so stressful for them.

During my time as a student, I was having a lot pressure being on top section. More activities on schools and more take home activities. Even in weekends we do have home work. And as child, I also need to play and socialize with other kids but it doesn't happen all the time.

May that is one of the reason why other kids are cutting classes and dropping out. They are being bombarded too much in school.

Can it just be school time is study time and getting home is relaxing time?

As a mother, are you in favor of take home activities or homework for your children?

Support your answer.

Do you know that vinegar could help you remove stubborn stains on your laundry?

Yes! Vinegar is also known for removing stains on laundry. My grandmother taught me that, before washing white clothes, I must soaked them first in a vinegar with a small amount of water and leave it there overnight.

It doesn't only remove the stains but it also leave your white clothes with a clean white color.
