She wrote in OKAY! magazine“They asked me about the baby’s movements, but she was pretty quiet during the week, so I was a little concerned.

What is the Babydust method?

The Babydust Method is a book published by Kathryn Taylor that uses ovulation prediction kits to help couples come up with the desired sex of the child.

The method works by asking women for their luteinizing hormone twice a day and using ovulation predictor kits for three months to spot the patterns in their cycle.

The hormone usually rises with around day 14 of the menstrual cycle and ovulation, with tests showing when a woman should ovulate.

Couples hoping to have a girl must have two or more intercourse three days before ovulation and no other time during the cycle.

Those hoping for a boy should have sex 24 hours after their first darkest test, indicating that ovulation will occur 24 hours later, and again after 24 hours.

In July, the star learned she was finally expecting a daughter after openly expressing her wish to have a daughter.

Danielle previously revealed that she decided to try a baby naturally after being unable to travel abroad for controversial gender selection due to the Covid pandemic.

The star revealed that she followed the Babydust method, a book edited by Kathryn Taylor that enlists the help of ovulation strips to conceive a child.

Danielle previously told OK! that she followed the book ‘to a T’, adding, ‘I tried it before and I got pregnant, but I miscarried. So this time I tried for a few months and nothing happened.

“When I got the negative result, I was really upset about it and Michael said, ‘Come on, let’s try it now and do the gender selection.’

“I had come to terms with the fact that we weren’t going to try again and two or three days later I found out I was pregnant.”

Last year, the former glamor model revealed she had put her plans to use controversial sex-selection treatment on hold after being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis.

She admitted she “can’t think of a baby right now,” but would “love a little girl” while performing on Loose Women.

In the interview, she said she has put her eldest child Archie in therapy after he suffered from anxiety following her divorce from ex-husband Jamie.

Danielle tragically miscarried in 2019.

The media personality said she has had to postpone her hopes of having a daughter because she will have to undergo surgery to treat her conditions, which can affect a woman’s fertility.

Polycystic ovary syndrome, the condition that affects one in three women in the UK

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition that affects the functioning of a woman’s ovaries.

The three main characteristics of PCOS are:

  • Irregular periods – meaning the ovaries are not releasing eggs regularly (ovulation). This can affect a woman’s ability to conceive.
  • Excess androgen – high levels of ‘male hormones’ in the body, which can cause physical symptoms such as excess facial or body hair.
  • Polycystic ovaries – the ovaries become enlarged and contain many fluid-filled sacs (follicles) that surround the eggs (it’s important to note that despite the name, if you have PCOS, you don’t actually have cysts).

She said: ‘I just found out I have PCOS and endometriosis, so I’m going to have to have surgery for that, so I can’t even think of having another baby right now.

“I’m not sure, I just got a puppy that’s a little girl, so she’s my baby right now. I would like a little girl, but four boys is a lot.’

Endometriosis is an often painful condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the womb — the endometrium — grows outside the uterus, while PCOS is a common condition that affects how a woman’s ovaries work.

In August 2019, Danielle revealed that her sons were also eager to have a sister and said she had been to Dubai’s gender selection clinic, the Fakih IVF Center.

The practice has been condemned by the World Health Organization (WHO) and is illegal in Britain.

The WHO says sex selection raises “serious moral, legal and social problems” and can lead to the devaluation of women and gender inequality.

Danielle has learned that the treatment is accurate in 99% of cases where a baby is successfully born and has also started investigating the possibility of caring for a girl in Northern Cyprus, another state where it is legal .

However, after further questioning, TV star and electrician Michael had previously settled in America, where they believed general safeguards would be stronger.

Once there, some of her eggs would be harvested and fertilized, and then one or two of the resulting female embryos would be re-implanted into the mother’s womb. The rest is saved for possible use in the future.

The queen of the 2004 Miss England pageant divorced the sportsman in 2014, just two years after they tied the knot when it was revealed he had cheated on her.

What is endometriosis? How the condition results in pelvic pain and internal scarring?

Endometriosis is an often painful condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus – the endometrium – grows outside the uterus.

It most commonly affects the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissue lining the pelvis.

The primary symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain, although many women also experience cramping during their menstrual cycle.

Symptoms also include painful periods, pain with intercourse, pain with bowel or urination, inflammation, excessive bleeding, and infertility.

Often misdiagnosed, many women only discover they have the condition during infertility treatment.

About half of women with endometriosis have trouble conceiving.

While studies on the link between endometriosis and miscarriage are still ongoing, newer research suggests the condition may put patients at greater risk of miscarriage.
