I kept hearing about being able to have mixed gender twins or triplets so I decided to try it out in my game. It really works.
All I did was:
-Make both parents have the fertility treatment (more likely to have triplets)
-Had a doctor in my active family determine gender of the baby when she was 'showing' (doctor must be level 5 in medical)
-They said she was having a girl so I made her eat three apples (and nothing else throughout the whole pregnancy, used cheat code 'testingcheatsenabled true' to help)
-Then when she had the babies, she had a girl and two boys.
Hope this helps  :D :)
If it says she will have a boy eat three watermelons.

Welcome to the forum! We have a thread about mixed gendered twins/triplets already so I will merge your thread with that one.  :)

Welcome to our Forum!

These steps are actually no longer necessary to get mixed gender twins or triplets.  Electronic Arts changed the programming in the game so that mixed genders can happen as often as same genders without any player interference.

If you're absolutely determined on a particular gender, eat more than three. I will typically eat the desired fruit for the duration of the pregnancy. Also, there are other ways to avoid eating anything undesired without cheats (lock the fridge away, just feed on schedule and ignore the Stuffed moodlet, don't have a fridge).

I've had quadruplets (possible with Twallen's Woohooer mod) be mixed gender (3 girls 1 boy) by doing absolutely nothing. I mean I had my pregnant sim watch the kids TV station and listen to the kids Radio station like crazy, hence the quads, but no watermelons and no apples. Nothing. It apparently is possible randomly but unlikely. The way described here i've heard many times before though and as far as I know always works as a fool proof way to get them but i've never tried it.

Edit: My quads were 2 boys 2 girls, I don't know why I said 3 girls and 1 boy. The quads are in my legacy if anyone wants to see them. They are teens now but I haven't got where they turned to teens in the story yet, just children so far. Jason, Nicholas, Charisma and Harmony Robinson. :)

I don't know how to make a banner or I would. I have a sim legacy story if anyone would like to check it out *whistles*

I had mixed gender twins. I got a wish for a boy, but I wanted a girl, so I ate watermelon. Read a pregnancy book, I didn't own a TV. And I got the twins! My first ones ever.Wasn't very happy as I don't like having kids very often.

I've been able to get it VERY often. I thought it'd be pretty rare but I have my pregger sim either with Fertility Treatment LTR OR have them listen to a lot of kids music and eat three watermelon then three apples. Vice versa, if you want it in a different order. In my Immortal Dynasty, I wanted a female heir so watermelon first. So, I was really excited when I got mixed gender twins for my Immortal Dynasty and got a female heir.

I have said this many times and I believe it was said again just above your post. 3 of the desired fruit isn't enough to ensure the gender you want. I'm curious, though, about the birth order. I'm going to test that out myself. :)

I had no idea three didn't cut the cake! No wonder my last pregnant sim didn't have a girl! I usually forget about them needing to eat the fruit for the certain gender, so I fell for the legend of three was enough. Whew, I got to be careful, I could end up with a boy heir and not intend or want it. I've always believed it was three! My, I just can't believe that I've thought that through all my time on the Sims 3. Back, when I was reading your immortal dynasty, (goodness, of the many times I've read it! I love reading it OVER and OVER, lol) I remember you saying Periwinkle (or it could've been Cinnamon, I can't remember) was stuffing herself of watermelon, and I was all like, "Why not just do 3?" Well, I've learned something new.

I just stumbled onto this thread and found it interesting.  I had a family who had 4 kids.  A girl, boy and twins (a girl and boy).  I did absolutely nothing special.  The mother was a gardener and the father a painter.  She never went to a doctor (I didn't know they could) until it was time.  So no asking.  They ate all the foods from the garden and I got what I got.  It was a great surprise to have twins.  I was very excited about that.  Fun Fun... ;).  I had no idea that mixed gender twins were a myth turned fact and that the fruit had anything to do with it.  Neat to know, but I was just as happy with the surprise, just as in real life.  I never knew any of my own kids genders.   :)

This thing about eating three of the desired fruit is something of a myth/legend.  It may have been true for Sims 2 or possibly in the very early days of Sims 3, but if it was, they changed it pretty quick.  Mine usually eat around 10 pieces of fruit and I've never failed to get the gender I want.  :D

It didn't take me long to debunk the thing about birth order.  On my first test pregnancy, the mother had the fertility treatment and watched a lot of Kids TV.  She ate first three watermelon, then three apples.  Twins were born.  First came a boy, then came a girl.  This is the exact opposite of the fruits she ate during her pregnancy.  (Sorry, simlover16.)

Eating three of a fruit only gives an 80% chance of the desired Gender. The ideal amount is five (you start at a 50% chance and each fruit tips that balance by 10% - so three apples and two watermelons is 50 + (3 x 10) - (2 x 10) = 50 + 30 - 20 = 60%), but if it's absolutely essential to have one gender (ie Generation Seven in a Dynasty) it is recommended that the desired fruit is ALL the mother eats, to be absolutely certain.

that happened to me too except what happened was i made my  parents try for baby but she didn't get the nausea moodlet so i made then try again the next night too. she fell pregnant and had twins, a boy and a girl, but she didn't have the fertility treatment.

i didn't think it was possible for that to happen until it happened to me!

My sim Honesty had triplets with Joel Vidal. Honesty was vampire, Joel was faery, and the children were a faery girl and two vampire boys. Before I threw them out of my family, they tried again, and when I looked, it was triplets again. Two girls and a boy, again girls were fairies and the boy was a vampire. Guess I got lucy, even though only two of six inherited the rainbow skin tone.

Cool strategies! Need to try them out, I love twins even though they mean more work for those poor parents  :P
I've had mixed gender twins twice without trying, once way back when in the base game. I remember having the parents try for baby several times in succession and hearing the 'pregnant chime' twice, and voila, twins. Has anyone had it happen like this? My second set of mixed twins arrived after only one Try for baby. Did nothing special there except keep the mother happy and playing the piano. So yeah, surprised and also not too happy about double IFs.
It is fun to leave it to chance and be surprised, but I definitely want my current couple to have twins, so many thanks for the input :)

Mixed gender twins used to be exceedingly rare and practically require certain tricks to get them. A while back, however, EA released a patch that dramatically increased the possibility of mixed gender twins. I believe that the initial strategies still work, but you can easily get them without any extra effort.

Marvellous! Thank you! Off to torture my couple ;D

Edit: So following the setup, this happened:


So stoked right now ;D Worked to perfection! I never thought it'd be this easy.

I just had triplets.  All girls, but I think that is because I ate 4 watermelons.  I'm a rock star mom and the dad is a rock star dad.  I have to hire a babysitter and I'm scared to death to let someone else watch my kids.
