Do you have your heart set on a little boy? If you do you probably know there are many different techniques to try to get pregnant with a boy. One of the most promising things you can do is change your body’s pH level. You can change your pH level with diet and supplements. Baking soda is one promising supplement with many uses.
Why pH Matters
Your body is either acid or more alkaline. The human body tends to be slightly more alkaline. If you are hoping to get pregnant with a boy you want to make your body as alkaline as possible. It’s also good for your husband’s body to be alkaline.
The sperm that carry the Y chromosome prefer a more alkaline environment. They seem to thrive in that environment, and may be able to get to the act more quickly and such conditions.
Your diet and environmental variables can help influence your body pH and give you a greater chance of getting a boy.
How to Use Baking Soda
There are different ways you can use baking soda to help change your body pH. One of the easiest ways is by using it as a baking soda drink. Remember, when you use baking soda like this you are taking it as a supplement. You should use caution with this as you do with any supplement.
To make a baking soda drink simply take a small amount of baking soda such as one quarter to one half teaspoon and mix it into a small amount of water — about half glass of water should be good. Drink this in the morning, and again in the evening if you’d like. This helps to raise your body pH and make your body more alkaline.
There are also other ways that you can use baking soda if you’re trying to conceive a boy. You can try taking a bath with some baking soda in the water. For this, use two pounds of baking soda and two parts sea salt, or use four pounds of baking soda and relax — take a good soak. You can also just make a baking soda scrub using three parts baking soda and one part water, this common beauty treatment could possibly help lower your body pH.
Baking soda finger is something you may have heard about if you have read anything on choosing your baby’s gender. To do a baking soda finger you can dip your fingertip into a little bit of baking soda then insert into your vagina. This can be painful — some women complain that it burns. I personally think that the baking soda drink is the best way to use baking soda to lower pH.
