What do you crave when you are pregnant with a girl? & vice versa

I was wondering if there are things in particular that pregnant women crave when they are having a girl rather than things you crave when having a boy...

  • i craved salsa, apples, and peanut butter w/ my girl. im pregnant w/ a boy now and i crave stuff like burgers & fries, pizza, chicken nuggets. i crave a lot more "bad" foods with this boy, the worst thing i wanted w/ my girl was ice cream.

  • When I was pregnant with my boy, I wanted spicy food and chinese food. Specifically jalapeno poppers and sesame chicken. The spicy crap worked wonders for my heartburn as I'm sure you can guess...

  • Oh my/.....LOL.....I am sure that is an old wives tale and has no basis in fact.
    I only craved during my first pregnancy and with the other two,I just ate normally and had no cravings. First and second were girls, third was a boy.

  • With my daughter, fruit. A lot of fruit. And things that tasted fresh...nothing overdone, dried out, oversaturated with sauces, etc.

    With my son, tomatoes, pasta sauce, and really crappy pizza - for the tomato sauce. Also, meat, but not pork. OMG, pork was terrible, but steak was fabulous.
