Red meat contains lots of iron which you desperately need during pregnancy (because you're producing all kinds of extra blood). I've been craving it like crazy, too.

I go through a week or two where I crave red meat and then could care less if I have it for a few weeks...seem slike an off and on craving.... None the less, I am having a girl so I dont think its a gender thing!
I also LOVE orange Juice and sour candies..mmmmmm
I think Little spy is right and it is due to our need for Iron

Mine is good, too. But you gotta keep eating plenty of iron to keep levels good, right?

I too crave red meat but it is an on off relationship. Orange juice I normally crave when I find water is not quenching my thirst.

At first I was like that with Mexican food I could eat it three meals a day and now I am ok to only have it once every other week or less haha. Cravings come and go and I don't think anyone has ever proved scientifically that certain cravings equal a certain sex.

Today I am craving red meat! I don't eat red meat, but every since I have become pregnant I have been craving it every once in awhile, so I figure I must need it, so I indulge.

The main reason I don't eat red meat is because I like real cows and collect figurines, and I would feel bad eating something cute that I have decorating my house, but since it's for the baby, I eat it and just look the other way, hehehe.
