Only baby boys born?

Is this happening to only me? I don't mind baby boys ;) But when trying to follow a legacy with certain rules, it would be nice with both boy and girl babies born in game :)

    I have a fair mix. The townie generator only seems to generate boy children though. It's been doing that since day one.

    There are a lot of threads like this where people are reporting strings of one gender. However, gurus have confirmed that it is a 50/50 chance and that it is just by chance that this is happening. Personally, I haven't had this problem. The worst I had was 3 boys in a row -- nothing out of the ordinary.

    Ok, I used to get both gender babies born, but the last weeks it has only been boys

    Thank you for your reply @jessathemessa I will keep trying then ;) I wonder how many babies my legacy sim can have before she gets a girl!

    I've read several topics in regards to this. While baby gender is random, it seems like it will sometimes get 'stuck' a certain gender. Some players have reported 18 sequential children all of the same gender.

    A player did offer a suggestion that whoever initiates the woohoo may also contribute to baby gender. So if a woman is asking the man for a baby, try having the man ask the woman for a baby.

    This is most likely an urban legend, and not something in the code, but give it a try and see if anything changes.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what gender spawn my legacy heir produces. I'm playing a patriarchy, but not a strict one, so if there are no boys, the eldest girl will inherit. However, the idea of keeping on trying until they get a boy is kind of overwhelming. Oh, the fun ;-)

    I have had nothing but girls born in my game so far, nine so far.. Have turned it into a family curse for my game. lol

    I have had a majority of girl sims born in my game. Out of 10 children, 8 were girls.

    My score since September 4th: 3 boys and 12 girls. Thy urgently need to let us decide the gender of our babies!!

    I think its yellow bassinets for girls and blue or green bassinets for boys.

    Bassinet color has nothing to do with it.

    I've had a string of girls, then a string of boys and a mix of both with various families. It is random. Each time it's a 50/50 chance. I know real families who go through the same thing. It just is what it is.

    I’m tired of waiting for a girl - I’ve had yet to have a girl born. Just had yet another boy born. So my next family, im creating a female toddler for them! At least now I’ll have one girl in the family.

    I'm having this issue as well, most of my families are boys and the occasional girl. i wonder why...

    Click this link and you will find info on how to influence gender during pregnancy. I haven't used this in a while but it worked when I used it last.
