What can I do to increase my chance of having a baby girl?

It just depends on whether a sperm carrying a Y chromosome or one carrying an X chromosome penetrates the egg, and there is nothingyou can do to determine this. This is assuming you are aiming for a 'natural' conception, rather than one achieved through assisted conception.
