Cravings by Gender
So I've heard that depending on your babies gender you crave different things.....

If it's a boy you crave salty & spicy things... But with a girl you crave sweeter things....

I'd like a poll on cravings ladies! And let me know what you're having!!

  I'm 19 weeks and won't be finding out the sex of the baby, it will be our surprise!  I've been obsessing over spicy things, I drink TONS of Milk..thats my go to drink with ANY meal...yet in the morning I want chocolate pudding!!

I have no idea what I am having yet as I am 6 weeks, but, ALL I want is spicy food, the smell of fish makes me gag and I throw up anything dairy.  I am trying to read on possiblities as its completely opposite of my 16 yr old daughter when I was pregnant with her.  ALL I wanted was sweet tea and peaches and anything sugary.  Now the thought of sugar sounds like licking the ground, unappealing.  SO I hope that it is a boy... I CANT WAIT to find out.  HE has 2 boys from another relationship so I am hoping that it is a boy.

Fingers crossed

with my daughter I couldn't eat...everything made me sick.
I lived off cereal bars, rice krispie treats,  and decaf tea in the beginning.
After I had a leak of fluid at 24 weeks and the fluid was low enough around her they put me on bedrest in the hospital I lived off  ice cubes i swear...I was so thirsty.

Hello,
I am only 5-6 weeks, tomorrow is my first official apt. But I have 4 girls already and every time I was pregnant I craved nothing but sweet things, now this time I am pregnant but craving real full course meal, meats and salty foods, and spicy foods. I have 4 girls hoping for a boy this time. Have a long way to go before I find out the sex of the baby.

Iv had 2 girls both sweet cravings , my first girls was beetroot and my second was sugary sweets! Had morning sickness really bad threw both pregnancies! I'm preg again and started eating lots of scrambled egg before I new I was preg, after I found out I started struggling to eat food was always bloated and felt full and if I forced myself to eat id be sick, I don't have any cravings but I don't normally eat chocalate but I am now and I enjoy mash and gravy but I'm not craving it! I'm hoping for a boy could it be possible

I crave salt a lot...all I want is pretzels.  I'm almost going nuts right now cause I'm trying to cut back on my salt in take.  I'm got two options either pick the pretzels out of the cheezit mix or make popcorn.  Oh yeah...I'm having identical twin boys!

I'm having a boy and I've only craved sweet things the whole pregnancy. I quit soda a year before getting pregnant and cravings for soda came back...cookies are my fave food right now...girl scout cookies and choco chip and double chocolate chip, muffins, scones, pop tarts, sugar cereals..and yep it's a boy!!! So these myths have nothing to do with what gender you are having. I'm also carrying high but its due to me being short and less room for a baby in there!

On January 2013, i found out I was pregnant.  And ever since, I lived off cakes, cookies, ice cream and yogurt, anything that's creamy and sweet.  It was funny I was crying for a cup of Ice Cream an hour b4 my c section.  And ofc I didnt get it, cuz no any type of food before c section.  And for people who against c section, fyi, my blood pressure shoot sky high at 39 weeks for my pregnancy, and my ob recommended I go through c section for the safety of my son and I.

Now, March 2015, am pregnant with second child, this time, I want only fruits, maxican style, with lots of lime juice, a little salt and ofc, spicy.  And I like to suck on lemons.  And omg I have to have steak with lots and looooooots of salsa ever since last weeks.  Btw am Chinese borned Canadian, and I haven't had maxican fruits style since grade 7, and I remembered hating it, cuz of all the sourness and it was from a maxican friend who was an exchanged student.   and I don't like salsa,  I don't like any thing sour and sweet.  And yet both of my pregnancy are making me creave these tastes.  Sigh,  I have to wait and see what install for me this time (a girl may be?)
