Do similar cravings as 1st pregnancy mean same gender?


What do you think/what's been your experience? This pregnancy I'm craving fruits - which is the same thing I craved last time. But in addition I'm also wanting a lot of cooked food (different from last time).

Just wondering if there's a link to cravings and gender?

My cravings have been all over the place. I always have a sweet tooth, so that never counts. Last pregnancy I wanted sour cream, pop corn and anything savory. I had a boy. This time I'm into all the fruits, bacon, hot Cheetos and gummy candies. Pop too which I never drink. Not sure what I'm having yet.

With my girls i was craving fruits, especially oranges, sweet foods. With this one everything seems too sweet and the best snack is popcorn. I would eat everything salty. From fruits i can only eat apples. And we just found out that this one is a boy!
So different cravings for different gender for me.

Thanks for your responses! I really wonder if there's a link- but seems like it can go either way. Momof2tobe, I also craved oranges and tangy fruits with my girl- same thing now! But I'm also craving cooked food like rice and fis, which is new this time,.so what's that supposed to mean? I've heard sweet cravings mean girl and savoury cravings mean boy...

I guess like you said it can go either way.

With my first two pregnancies, I was craving sweet and had pretty much the same pregnancy symptoms and both times I was pregnant with girls.

This time, its the complete opposite. Any kind of sweet is too sweet and I prefer sour and spicy food.

In your case, if I had to guess, I would say you are having a girl. hehe. Do let me know whether I am right after your ultrasound.

With my boy I definitely had more savory cravings. I didn't like a lot of sweet food, in fact it made me gag.

With this one I'm definitely into my sweet tooth. I love fruit like crazy, also love "bad stuff" like cotton candy, haha. I'm not finding out what I'm having this time though, until the end.

Hmmmm, interesting! Thx for your replies. I wonder if there's anything to the 'savoury = boy", "sweet = girl". I'm craving a mix of sweet (fruits) and savoury, things, though....so..

But Timewaster - my instinct says 'girl' too (DH and I would love another girl). But we'll see!

I'm not in 2nd tri yet but will try to update when I know!
