There has not been any definitive scientific research that suggests a connection between having certain pregnancy symptoms, or the severity of pregnancy symptoms, and the gender of your baby. Having said that, many women believe that their pregnancy symptoms can indeed predict the gender of your baby. Even if it isn’t the most reliable method, it can be fun to consider your pregnancy symptoms in relation to your baby’s gender while you wait for a more reliable method, such as an ultrasound, to tell you with more certainty what the gender of your baby will be.

One pregnancy symptom that has been connected with the gender of your baby has to do with cravings. It is thought that, if you are craving sweets like chocolate, that the gender of your baby will be female. In contrast, your baby would be a boy if you are craving sour things, such as raw lemon juice. Unfortunately, many women crave a combination of things that can be both sweet and sour, making it harder to predict the gender of your baby from this symptom.

Another pregnancy symptom that is thought to predict the gender of your baby is acne. If you break out in severe acne, it is predicted that you will have a girl. If your acne is mild, then you will have a boy.

The most common pregnancy symptom, morning sickness, may be able to be used to predict the gender of your baby as well. If you are severely sick, you will be having a boy. Otherwise, you will be having a girl. Some people think that the timing of morning sickness is able to predict the gender of your baby, too, with morning sickness in the morning being a boy and morning sickness at night being a girl.

Hair growth is another pregnancy symptom that can predict the gender of your baby. If you are having a boy, you should watch out because you are more likely to grow body hair during pregnancy. Conversely, if you are having a girl, you should not expect to grow body hair during pregnancy.

    Hi, I Haven’t had any symptoms at all I do crave to eat a lot of bananas, I sleep late at night and I’ve actually been pretty menlo with my partner can someone tell me what am I having?

  • mommy of2

    I loved sour candy wit my 1st baby and she is a heathly pretty little girl who is now 2

    This is funny, because according to the Chinese chart i would be having a boy. Looking at the symptoms listed here, (constantly nauseated, no acne but skin is a lil oily, and cravings for nachos (something obviously not sweet)) i would say i’m having a boy. Which is funny because looking at my weight gain (lower stomach area) and mild back pains i was figuring a boy. I won’t know for another couple months though. So, what do you guys think? :)
