I realise I haven't phrased that well enough. What I mean is that my opinion is that listening to/watching the Kids Station does not increase the odds of Mixed Gender Twins and Triplets, it only does what it's always done - increase the odds to a level where you can be fairly certain that the nooboos will be Twins or Triplets. I believe that there has got to be something that influences the probability that Mixed Gender Twins occur, other than the goold old "Get the Doctor's opinion, then eat the fruit that causes the opposite gender" trick.

I'm curious if just not binging on either fruit (apples or watermelons) and not asking the nearest doctor to determine the baby's gender has something to do with this. Maybe I'm wrong, but didn't Alexandria not do the apple/watermelon trick or ask the nearest doctor to determine the baby's gender in her immortal dynasty? Alexandria?

I did use the trick in my dynasty to get Leda and Arche, I just didn't mention it in the story. The natural mixed gender twins started happening for me after the latest patch.

Tonight on my game I had a pregnant sim. She was one of the green sims from hidden springs. When she went into labor she had a boy and a girl twins. I was curious if this has happened to you with out any interference from you. I know how to get multi gender twins if I want . In this case however I wanted the gender to be a complete surprise and it was!

Yes, a quick check on that section of the pregnancy coding shows that EA did indeed correct the mistake they made in the base-game.

Marvelous to hear. :)

I just wanted to say how excited I am to get my first natural born multi gender triplets! The only help was (obviously) the fertility treatment for both parents. It was 2 girls and 1 boy.
If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.

The gender is decided upon asking the doctor what the baby's gender is. The catch is that, in case of twins and triples, this will lock the first baby's gender, so if the doctor says it's a girl, it will be a girl regardless of how many apples you make your sim mother eat. After the first baby's gender is locked (in this case, girl), you can force the second twin's gender by eating it's specific fruit (apple for boys, watermelon for girls).

Interesting. It didn't work for my couple with their third child, after my female Sim's husband, who is a World Reowned Surgeon btw, said it was a boy, no amount of watermelons would change the gender. (I think she ate about 15).

Next I tried for mixed gender twins, the old fashioned way with her Doctor husband and the fruit, I have the latest patch but not Pets installed yet so I was taking no chances.

As soon as pregnancy was announced I had him determine the gender, a boy which was great as both my Sims wanted a boy. Because this happened late at night and they both tired I sent them both to bed straight after this and didn't have her start eating watermelon until the next day. She ate about 10-11 and he said it was a boy again, 2-3 watermelons later he still insisted it was a boy.  >:( On the third day I had her scoff down about 20 watermelons (I was getting desperate by this stage, lol), I tried to have him determine the gender again but the option didn't show up for either of them. When she gave birth out came a boy and a girl!  :)

The Mother had the Fertility Treatment LTR and watched the kids channel as well as listening to music mostly on the third day, both parents read the pregnancy books. Also both parents have the Family Orientated trait and the Mother has the Nurturing trait too, not sure if the latter make a differance though.

I'm just posting this to show that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, lol. This is just my little experience, thought you might be interested.  :P

After the gender is determined by the physician, you can't change the gender by eating either fruit, but it gives higher chances of the second child of being the opposite gender. :)

I realized after rereading some parts of this thread that the gender of the baby cannot be changed after a physician determines gender, as it locks it in. I also get that eating the correct fruit will probably result in the second baby being the opposite gender. What I don't quite understand is why he didn't say the second child was a girl even after I had his wife eat a bucketload of watermelon.

Actually, you never know if it is going to be more than one baby, so they cannot determine gender of more than one baby. :)  Some things have to remain a mystery, lol.

Right.  Like Salty said, it's only the first baby that the doctor is determining the gender for.  No matter how many times your Sim asks, it will always be the first baby and the gender will remain the same no matter how much fruit the mother eats.  It's only at birth that you find out that it's multiple babies with mixed genders.

Ok, thanks Salty and Pam.  :) I would be nice if Physician Sims could determine twins or triplets just like Doctors can in real life. Just a quick, slightly unrelated question here.

Since the birth of the twins I now have 5 kids (3 toddlers, 2 babies, God help me!!! DX), Mum, Dad and the Bulter makes 8 Sims living under 1 roof. Just wondering if the Bulter counts towards the 8 Sim limit per household as he has not been added to the active family.

Good! I will be making one of childrens Imaginary Friends real in the future then (They ALL got one! xD), thanks!  :)

Hmmm, 5 kids, 2 parents, 1 Bulter and 5 IFs including 1 that will eventually be made real, I can sense that things are going to get pretty crazy in my household, lol! DX

My current family just had two sets of twins in a row, both of which were mixed gender. I did nothing to the parents (i.e. I didn't use the doctor checking gender cheat) and I think only the mother has fertility treatment. At the time of this occurring I had the world adventures and ambitions expansions. Did EA increase the chances of mixed gender twins?

Welcome to the forum Durei. This is a great place to discuss and share your experiences with Sims 3!

We actually have a topic about Mixed Gender Twins. It was started over a year ago by our very own administrator herself, Pam, and many of our forum members have discussed evidence that the Pets Patch may have increased the chances of Mixed Gender Twins. You can discuss it here.

Hope you enjoy this forum.  :)

Thank you Jeanamariex3! Unfortunately I noticed the topic after I posted my own. I had searched for something about it back in November when my sims first had the children (I haven't played since then), but I'm just now getting around to posting about it since I'm playing again with the expansions I got for Christmas :) There wasn't much when I first searched and I posted this thread in my impatience. I'm a little sad that they upped the chances, I thought I had hit the rarity jackpot xD.

I just got mixed gender twins and I did nothing. In fact I had my Sim eat apples after WooHooing. She had a girl and boy, the mother is Agnes Grier (Crumplebottom), the father is a man named Dion Grier. She did have the fertility treatment, but I did nothing else. I can't believe it, I wasn't expecting that. She never touched watermelon at all, I never asked the doctor the gender of her baby, mainly because I thought she was going to have a boy, or boys. ;D
