    I have heard that:

    Boys seem to produce less HCG than girls - which means 1) you could get your bfp later if you're having a boy, 2) your HCG doubles quicker in early pregnancy with a girl than with a boy.

    My bfp's with my daughter on the day of my missed period were very faint but it was there. Now, AF day, hoor period and bfn. Maybe still producing the hormone by my boy?


    What does everyone think

    I got a bfp with my son at 10dpo which is really early.

    I've never heard that sex of the baby determines how much hcg you produce.

    I don't see why the sex of the baby would have anything to do with your hcg levels? We're having a boy and got a Bfp at 10dpo and our early hcg blood tests were really high and doubled at a higher rate than expected xx

    With this pregnancy I'd agree as I got my faint bfp day after af was due and I was sure that I must have ov'd late but dates were bang on on my scan but with my last pregnancy I got my bfp 5 days before af was due. Both were boys x

    I can't imagine this is true as the sex of the baby isn't determined that early and also the complete opposite for me.

    The sex of the baby is determined the moment the egg and sperm meet :)
