However, most of these, while fun to examine to determine gender, are not a tool that can accurately determine the gender of a baby. The most accurate way to determine what the gender of a baby will be is through having an ultrasound at particular points in a pregnancy. But if while trying to conceive, you researched high and low on how to get pregnant with a baby boy or baby girl, in particular, you might be antsy to find out sooner!

If you are looking to have one gender over the other, there are some things that you can do before you become pregnant. For example, having intercourse a few days before ovulation will make it more likely that a girl will be conceived. For a boy, try to have intercourse as close to ovulation as possible.

This is helpful because male sperm are faster but weaker than female sperm. Also, female sperm can live longer, which means that they will have a better chance of reaching the egg if you have intercourse further away from your ovulation day. Since sperm can live in the body for a few days, this will allow the female sperm time to reach the egg before the male sperm.
