Answer Title trying for a son?
The Answer Shalom
There are some details missing so I will not answer the actual question but rather give general guidelines.
Selecting the baby gender is not normally recommended, we believe Hashem has a good understanding of what is best for us.
In the case a couple finds it very hard to leave it all to G-d's hands, some actions can be taken to enhance the chances of your desired gender. It also depends on the age of the wife and other factors.
I recommend you speak to your rabbi or contact us over the phone
All the best
