  • all I've wanted is red meat, i'm having a boy...

    but craving red meat usually is attributed to an iron deficiency...

  • With my youngest son I craved red meat and the more rare it was the better. The really odd part is at that time I was eating only white meats usually. My H&H levels were fine so it wasn't iron deficientcy. It was just weird.

  • I only ate chicken before pregnancy, then even before I took a test I was slammin burgers and wanted steak. I craved all meat when I was preggers w my son.

  • I craved red meat and I had a girl, but like a previous poster said, I think that was more a sign of iron deficiency -- I was diagnosed as anemic late in the pregnancy.

  • My youngest son is built on Portillos cheeseburgers and rare steaks. I am normally not a fan of red meat, but that's all I wanted with him!

    With my oldest son though, I craved Kung Pao chicken and very spicy foods like salsa and hot sauce. No red meat.

  • I craved hamburgers like crazy with my dd. It's iron deficiency.
