Am I having a boy or girl?

Section: Pregnancy

One of your biggest questions as soon as you find out you’re pregnant is whether you will have a boy or a girl. 

You and your partner will be wondering and imagining life with a baby boy or baby girl, and everyone you meet will ask “Do you know what you’re having?”

Take our fun quiz to find out whether you might be having a boy or girl, based on many of the common myths about your baby’s gender - but remember, this quiz is just for fun, and cannot confirm for definite whether your baby will be a boy or girl. 

You can ask the sonographer who carries out your 18-21 week scan, but be aware that the answer won't be 100 per cent accurate. Not all hospitals will let you know your baby's gender, so you might want a paid-for private scan - ask your midwife for details of what's available in your area.

This gender predictor quiz is not scientific and is based on many common myths and old wives‘ tales. 

Gender predictions are based on fun ideas such as: 

  • Are you carrying your bump high or low? 
  • Are you craving salty or sweet foods? 
  • Have you got glossy, luxurious hair or is it flat and lifeless? 

There are even myths such as whether your partner puts weight on during your pregnancy, how moody and emotional you are feeling, and how hairy your legs are.

But all of these ideas are just for fun and the only sure-fire way to find out whether you are having a girl or a boy is to give birth!
