Do women pregnant with boys eat more?

Just curious because I watch boys eat and they will eat anything and everything.. Theyre like a bottomless pit and can eatmore than me! Now little girls ive never seen eat that much. I was just curious if its the same in the womb? do pregnant women having boys eat more than women carrying a girl?

  • I'm pregnant with a boy and I don't eat that much. I snack a lot, but I don't eat a lot of meals.

  • I had 4 boys and I ate healthy and in moderation. I wasn't always hungry and I didn't crave junk food. As it happens my 4 sons (who are 23, 22, 19 and 17) are all healthy eaters who will seriously choose fresh fruit over candy, water or milk over soda and non-sugared cereals over sugary ones. They have also never eaten in excess, they don't over eat. One sandwich is enough, 1 bowl of cereal is enough, they don't pile food on their plates, etc..
