CRAZY old wives tales and advice
My mom is one of the only people who know we are TTC, and that's enough for me to have to listen to outrageous advice based on outdated old wives tales. She really wants me to have a girl (I'm the ONLY girl in my family out of all my cousins and their kids) So she says that right before sex I have to douche with a mixture of water and VINEGAR to ensure I conceive a girl!! EEEWWWWW!!!! Wouldn't that kill his sperm?? And wth, I am not making a salad in my vagina I do not think vinegar belongs in there.
She also tells me to take my temperature and when it drops I am ovulating. I told her that temperatures only show you AFTER you've ovulated which is still great for future cycles, but doesn't tell you when to have sex now. She is adamantly sticking to her old wives tales and saying that she chose her babys' genders this way, and so did her mother. I said they had a 50/50 shot and got lucky! LOL
What's the wierdest thing someone has suggested you do?
