Pregnant Women’s Diet Can Determine The Child’s Gender

With 3 boys running and horsing around the house, I can’t help but envy my friends who have little girls with ribbons on their hair wearing dainty dresses. Don’t get me wrong. I adore my three boys. But I still want a baby girl. I want a sweet little girl on my lap with cute giggles that shower me with butterfly kisses. I have no complaints with the slobbery, hurried kisses my boys dish out. But it would be nice to have a tiny human being in my house that doesn’t smell like a sweaty dog.

Latest study show that a hearty breakfast laced with sugar can boost a woman’s chances of conceiving a son. On the other hand, a low-energy diet that skimps on calories, minerals and nutrients is more likely to yield a female baby.

Although the mechanism is not yet clearly explained, it is known from in vitro fertilization research that higher levels of glucose, or sugar, encourage the growth and development of male embryos while inhibiting female embryos.

If I do decide to get pregnant again, trust me, it is going to be a low-cal diet for me despite the sugar cravings. I swear the next human being that will sleep inside my tummy will have balls to play with only if I get it one from the store.
