What Do You Know, I Have Another Niece…

What Do You Know, I Have Another Niece…

It’s only the 20th one. Lol No, just kidding.

I have 3 sisters.

my first sister had 2 girls, then a boy (guess 3rd time was the charm) and now shes due with another girl in October. Then she’ll have 3 kids under 3. I think she’s kinda crazy… but, that’s just me.

my 2nd sister, has 2 girls and just had her 3rd girl arrive August 1st (the reason for this post).

my 3rd sister has 1 girl, but i imagine she’ll be pregnant again in no time and it’ll be a girl.

And I of course have my daughter.

So as you can see, we’re an all girl posse.

My poor nephew Braylon doesn’t stand a chance with his siblings and cousins. Poor fella.

They say it’s all dependent on the male for which sex you get, but I think it goes a little deeper than that. I’ve found some information online (that I of course take with a grain of salt) that states some findings suggest that it also has to do with the vaginal PH. This results in the sperm of each deciding sex to live longer or die faster.

Apparently you can test your vaginal PH with a test strip and find out if you’re more alkaline (to get a boy) or acidic (to get a girl). A vaginal PH of between 4 and 4.5 is ideal for conceiving a girl, while a vaginal PH of between 7.5 to 9 is perfect for conceiving a boy.

I think im going to order the strips and have myself and my siblings do the test since I’m curious. And if we’re all acidic that would explain the reasoning for all the girls, at least in my mind it would.

Anyways, id like to welcome my new baby neice Alexis. Isn’t she adorable? She weighed 8lbs, 4oz and 19 and 3/4″ long. Her biggest baby yet, but still not bigger than mine. heh.


Has anyone tested the PH theory?



  1. Things I didn’t think I would read about today: Vaginal Acidity. LOL Seriously though, congrats on the new niece, she’s a beauty. Enjoy all those girls (and of course, Braylon)!

    What a beautiful sweet neice. I’ve never tested that so I have no idea. I had 2 boys and adopted my sweet girl.

    Never heard of the pH story, but it’s certainly interesting. There seems to be some scientific basis behind it, but I’m not sure it’s really predictive. Anyway, congratulations! She’s adorable!

    So cute, congrats on the new baby. Babies are always an exciting addition to the family, you guys have had a lot of them. My cousins and I are an all girl posse and we love it. My mother has four sisters and each of them had two girls, and one had 3 girls.

    How adorable! Congratulations!! That’s an interesting theory… I’ve never heard of it before. I have three boys now and another boy due in December. I keep telling my husband if he really wants a girl we should get a dog.. 😉

    Aww, how exciting, she’s so cute. I believe I did hear something about pH relating to the sex before. I don’t know if it’s true or not.

    Now this is indeed a gorgeous little girl. I have never heard of the Ph factor for a women but it is interesting. It might be something to look into. Thanks for sharing the information and congrats to your sisters. I do feel sorry for your nephew when the girls get older. lol

    Awww…Congratulations! She’s BEAUTIFUL! We had all girls on my side of the family, too, until my son came along. Then my brother-in-law said it was because I had in vitro and the embryo didn’t have to mix with my anti-male antibodies! lol

    I’ve never heard of the vaginal ph theory but it’s definitely something to look into. Your new niece is adorable!
