About This Quiz

Pregnancy is the most amazing thing a woman can experience! Between the swelling feet, the aching back and the constant need to put things into your mouth, it's amazing we glow at all! Let's revisit those months you spent warming your bun in the oven, and see if we can guess which kind of baby you had. Was it a boy, or was it a girl? 

It's normal to having intense cravings when you're pregnant. Doctors believe it's your body's way of telling you what nutrients you are lacking. We're not sure what nutrients might be in marshmallow fluff, but eating for two is not an exact science. Think back to all those months you spent going through the drive-thru or raiding your cupboards. The grocery list of cravings you admit to having will add up to the box that's ticked on your baby's birth certificate.

From vinegar to honey, every craving is different. Some women even crave freshly mowed grass! Tell us what you ate between the half-million daily trips to the bathroom, and we'll take our best guess about the sex of the child you are raising. Will your cravings make it easy for us to figure out?
