These boy or girl quizzes and predictors aren't always foolproof but they certainly are fun. If you want to play around and guess if you're having a little boy or girl, try these...
If you’re expecting soon, it’s fair that you might want to work out whether you’re expecting a boy or a girl – especially if it’s too early to have an ultrasound.
While all any parent wants is a happy and healthy baby and most won’t care whether it’s a boy or a girl, many will also want to know the sex of their baby so they can start to plan exciting changes in the house, like a nursery and buy clothes for the newborn. All that to think about – and that’s without family and friends pestering to know!
Of course the only thing that will be able to tell you if you’re having a boy or a girl is the ultrasound at 18 weeks but if you’ve found out you’re expecting at 4 weeks, that’s very long time to wait. So what better way to pass the time than a fun quiz?

Other ways to find out if you’re having a boy or a girl
Not heard of the Nub Theory before? This test uses early scans to try and determine the sex of your little one. The idea is that between 11-13 weeks all babies have a ‘nub’ in between their legs called a genital tubercle which can give you an indication of the sex of your baby depending on its positioning. The theory goes that if it’s pointing upwards of the spine 30 degrees it’s a boy and if it’s below the spine it’s a girl.
Ramzi Theory is all about analysing the placenta. If it’s on the left side of your body then there’s a 97.5 per cent chance that you’re having girl but if it’s on the right side, then there’s a 97.2 per cent chance that you’re having a boy. And sometimes it’s just too close to call…
