I dont think there is any 100% technique but you could try these.
Good luck

I am in the exact same boat:-) DH and I have two boys as well and are trying for our 3rd and final and are hoping and praying for a baby girl... I read that the X (girl) sperm swim slower but live longer and the Y(boy) sperm swim and die faster. So we BD every other day starting the week before OV w/ postitions that allow deep penetration. Then a few days before OV we BD every day with missionary. I know it's a long shot but what else can we do. Hope this helps. Good Luck and Sticky Baby Dust 2 U:-)

You guys should read the chapter on this topic in The Impatient Women's Guide to Getting Pregnant. The author reviews the research on timing sex and gender. Basically, she concluded that the common beliefs have it backwards. Sex on ovulation day is more likely to result in female babies, but also miscarriages. It's a great book!

I found an ovulation calendar that lets you put in whether you're wanting a boy or a girl. Then it tells you the days you're most likely to conceive boy or girl.

No idea if it's true or not.
