  • No. The determination of sex is dependent on the male sperm. It is either XX or XY. XX meaning female and XY meaning male.

  • i dont think so;
    I tried doing that with this lil bun in the oven now,
    I was trynna say that because with my family it goes boy, girl, boy
    and with my boyfriend's family it goes boy, girl, boy
    that with us it would do the same, he has two previous childern
    and right now for him its girl, boy, and now my little girl lol maybe its the opposite lol

  • No, you really have about a 50/50 shot. Other factors can play into it though. But generally 50/50. And since the sperm determines the sex, it doesn't completely make sense that you could tell by your family. My mom, and aunt both had boys first. My hubby's family had all boys and the generation before that all boys. I had a little girl. You just never know.
