The popular technique to get pregnant with a girl


In Spain and in many other countries choosing the sex of the baby is not legal, that is why many parents resort to 'natural methods' to try to influence the birth of their little one. Do you want to know what is that popular technique to get pregnant with a girl that many couples use?

The society in which we currently live has nothing to do with that of our grandmothers. Fortunately, women have entered working life and are an important agent for the economy of many countries. This good news can, however, be an 'impediment' for a woman to achieve one of her great dreams: to become pregnant.

Work is prioritized over the fact of forming a family and this means that the age at which a woman becomes pregnant is increasing and it is increasingly common to find women in their 40s who want to have their first child.

In these cases, the problem is that they can increase the pathologies derived from gestation as, for example, hypertension or gestational diabetes. Therefore, the ideal would be to try to get pregnant a little earlier, around 32 years of age.

There are several factors, specifically three, that influence when a woman becomes pregnant:

- Food
The woman's diet must be complete, varied and nutritionally balanced, with special emphasis on the contributions of folic acid (400 mg) and omega 3.

Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid that the human body cannot manufacture itself, hence the importance of including it in our diet with the consumption of certain foods. It has an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant function and, in addition, it is part of cell membranes, so in pregnancy it must be consumed regularly or supplemented to enjoy all its benefits.

The recommended daily intake of omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids is 2 grams per day for pregnant women during the first six months, an amount that increases to 2 and 2.5 grams during the third trimester of pregnancy and lactation.

Regarding folic acid, women who want to become pregnant should consult their gynecologist about folic acid supplements. A supplementation of 0.4 mg of folic acid is recommended every day for one month before the onset of pregnancy. This is the daily amount of folic acid sufficient to prevent neural tube malformations, such as spina bifida, which usually occur during the first 28 days of pregnancy.

In risky pregnancies, that is, if the woman has previously had children with spina bifida or if, for example, there is a history of neural tube malformations in the family or folic acid is not metabolized correctly, a dose of 5 is recommended. mg per day.

- Toxic
It goes without saying that during pregnancy a woman cannot take any alcohol and drugs and, of course, should stop smoking. If this bad habit continues during pregnancy, the child may be born with less weight than it should.

In addition, you have to be very careful with toxic substances, that is, substances or food additives or products / foods preserved in plastics that contain bisphenol A, which is an endocrine disruptor that simulates being a hormone.

It should also be noted that toxins can be found in the living room of our house - hence it is important to ventilate the home every day - or in the bathroom, since there are many cosmetics that contain inappropriate substances.

- Stress
Stress should be avoided, because it is an important factor that does NOT help to get pregnant, as is the psychological stability of the couple, both men and women. The more overwhelmed you are with bringing a baby into the world, the more it will cost you to get pregnant!

It is difficult to control the mind, we know, but for these cases, doing some kind of exercise or starting in the practice of yoga can come in handy.

There is no scientific evidence to support any technique to get pregnant with a boy or a girl, but there are always natural remedies that are already known to sometimes work.

It is said that if you have sexual intercourse two days before ovulation - this occurs in the middle of the cycle, that is, on day 14 - you can have a girl, since the X sperm are supposed to survive longer in the uterus of the mother. Some say it is a myth, but if you want to have a baby, you can try it!

During pregnancy, the sex of the baby can be known, at the earliest, in the 10th week of the child's life. For this, genetic tests will be carried out on blood. Although the other way to find out if it is a boy or a girl (and the most common) is ultrasound.

Depending on how your baby is positioned, if you are lucky you can know in week 12 of pregnancy, corresponding to the end of the first trimester and the beginning of the second. In the event that it is difficult or if you have doubts, you will have to wait (and cross your fingers) until the 20th week of pregnancy.

In recent years there is a 'fashion' among many first-time parents not wanting to know the sex of the baby and wanting to wait until the moment of delivery to find out if it is a boy or a girl. The goal is often to enjoy this moment or, in some cases, less, out of superstition. What do you think? Could you hold on
