Can Ramzi Theory guess your baby's gender from just SIX weeks?

Section: Pregnancy

There are plenty of old wives' tales and theories around guessing your unborn baby's gender.

A lot of mums-to-be love the Chinese Gender Predictor Tool, which originated from an ancient tomb near Beijing, more than 700 years ago.

Even Holly Willoughby has previously shared her (genius!) gender-guessing theory. 

One method you may have stumbled across is Ramzi Theory, which revolves around your 2d scan photo...  

What is Ramzi Theory?

It's the theory that your baby's sex can be determined, based on the location of the placenta in the first ultrasound.

  • Baby implanted on the left = girl
  • Baby implanted on the right = boy

However, make sure you read your ultrasound correctly. If you have an abdominal ultrasound, the results are mirrored.

So if your placenta is on the right, that actually means it's on the left (suggesting a girl). If your placenta is on the left, that means it's actually on the right (suggesting a boy).

Is Ramzi Theory accurate?

It's claimed that using this theory to predict your baby's sex is over 97% accuracy. Woah!

Despite the bold claims, gender prediction theories are only supposed to be a bit of fun. Don't deck out the nursery just yet!

When is best to use Ramzi Theory?

It's best to determine at your 6-8 week scan. For 12 weeks plus, you're better off trying the nub theory. 

You can request to find out your baby's sex during your mid-pregnancy ultrasound, which is technically done between 16-20 weeks.
