    I hadn't heard of the concept before, but there is a Kickstarter about it that seems a little bit Fortean and possibly some new science:

    Imagine if it was as simple as knowing which month an individual was to be [insert whatever the correct terminology is that won't offend someone] in order to determine if it was a boy or a girl…!

    Would be mind-blowing to think something so seemingly random was actually so formulaic.

    The correct terminology is 'conceived'.

    There's an old belief that babies conceived at different points on a woman's cycle will be one sex or the other. I forget which way round it is, like 'early' for girls and 'late' for boys or whatever.

    My mother heard about this from an ancient neighbour and, after a succession of female babies, gave it a go and produced two boys. So as far she's concerned that's the way forward.

    Of course, I knew there was a ‘correct’ word just mind was blank and all the alternatives coming up in my mind were less scientific!

    Wow I knew a family with 5 boys. It was hectic, loud and brilliant all the time. The best thing was the guidance and positive role models for the younger boys.
