  • I have had 4 boys and 1 girl and I didn't notice any different cravings with the boys. I don't think you can guess other than getting an ultrasound or an amniocentesis.

  • I'm prego with a boy and I crave pretty much everything my hubby likes. EXCEPT I can go through ice cream like it's nothing. I read online somewhere, when I first got prego, that if you pregnant with a boy you tend to crave saltier things. Which to me was true because all I wanted to eat was top ramen. BUT there is no sure fire way of telling what you are prego with.

  • I don't know. My first was a boy, my second was a girl. I didn't get sick with either one. I don't remember any difference in the two. Only knew when I had the ultrasound what each was. The boy spread open so everyone could see all his "glory" and the girl was a little shier.
