When you were pregnant did you crave sweet things or salty thing? Did you have a boy or a girl?

Just wondering if there's anything to that old wives tale.

  • I craved fruit which could be considered sweet I guess. But I also craved Mexican food.
    I had a girl.

  • I craved anything with meat and cheese(burritos, pizza, cheeseburgers, chili cheese dogs) so I'm guessing that's salty..and I had a girl.

  • I caved fruit in the beginning and open faced roast beef sandwiches in the end and had a boy. I took this test of old wives tales and it said i had a 95% chance of having a girl. Let me tell you he is allllll boy!

  • I craved salty foods and I had a boy. Salt and vinegar chips and pumpkin seeds. Weird because I never ate pumpkin seeds before pregnancy...ate the hell out of them while pregnant, and haven't eaten them since I was pregnant. Hhhmm

  • Salty but I also have always craved salty foods when I'm on my period. I don't really ever crave sweets, except maybe chocolate lol. Oh and I had a boy.

  • Actually, both, and I had a girl. One day I'd crave potato chips w/ sour cream and beef jerky, the next day, I wanted choc chip cookies or candy.
