  • I craved different things with each kid. With my second pregnancy I wanted all kinds of sweets. Turns out I had gestational diabetes. Different cravings and three boys... I don't buy the tale.

  • I dont believe it either. I craved (or rather just ate) alot of sweets while I was pregnant and I had a boy, lol..

  • nope, I ate sweets the whole time I was pregnant with my first child and it was a boy.

    They also say how you carry the baby will tell if it is a boy or a girl and I carried the exact opposite of what the wifes tale says.
    Good luck!

  • LOL must be true because that's how it was with my pregnancies. I graved sweet with my daughter and salt and spicy with my son.

  • i dont think they're always true. however, i did find that to be true with my first. i lived off of sweets, never ate anything healthy at all. miraculously i didn't get GD nor did i have an overweight baby, the opposite infact, 6 pounds. but she was a girl! however, i had two more girls and craved totally different things with them.

  • I craved salty foods with my DD so not true for me.

  • Nope, not at all! With both my girls, I craved McD's french fries 24/7.
