Hey Ladies, i've got a fun question: What have you absolutely had to have this pregnancy, and what has made your stomach turn? I'll go first... every day i HAVE to have my french vanilla organic yogurt (o its soo rich and yummy- full fat of course) and i mix in fresh strawberries and bananas.... And the sad sad thing that's made my stomach turn the whole pregnancy even though i really want it is coffee-- so bummed about that one. O and just in case there's a pattern to what we crave, say if you know you're having a boy or a girl... i dont know what i am having though...

they say that if u crave sour stuff your having a boy.. and if u crave sweets its a girl. well in my case im having a girl i did infact love sweets and stayed away from soury stuff.. my SIL had a boy n she was all over sour stuff... but then again it can be all mental lol. But i kinda believe in it. Also if u like alot of veggies instead of fruits.. they say it can be a boy. but i do know a girl who enjoyed sour type foods n she had a girl. so who knnows. I've had smoothies, ice cream, sweet snacks thru my whole pregnancy.. ive been staying away from sour foods or anything with strong flavor. I have to have an apple though GALA apple .. it helps wit heartburn but its also soo tasty.. but i cant live without smoothies.. lol

I craved fruit...lots of fruit! (especially green grapes & oranges), milk, icecream, popcorn & chips with both my pregnancies. I have two boys.

Oh and with both pregnanices I couldn't stand meat. Red meat repulsed me and I could only eat small portions of chicken.

I majorly craved/still crave veggies, especially tomatoes, and I'm having a girl. also, am obsessed with pickles and green olives lately, both sour, and I'm having a girl remember so none of those myths apply - unless casey comes out a boy and then I'm totally screwed, she already has a lifetime supply of clothes and her room is done all girly! the other thing I'm obsessed with is pancakes and waffles. I've really had no aversions, at first shrimp (which I usually love) was making me gag, but I like it again now :)

oh, and I can't get enough of vinegar on things (but I've always been like that) - another sour for the girl team! - and DDT made me remember, I'm loving a ton of watermelon and green grapes. I've had no cravings for sweets at all though except for fruit (and an occasional candy bar).

my child is going to come out with fish gills and covered in chocolate..seriously I have had to back myself off, i ate so much fish...and chocolate...weird...and liqurice (sp?)...lots of cheese and tomatos too...went off Pork in a hard way with my first and have never really been able to eat it since...not really off anything...but my teeth have become so sensitive that anything chilled kills me...


Mommyof1 - June 19

Okay, I have a really weird craving please don't laugh. SPONGES. I really don't want to eat them I just liek to chew them for some reason. I did the same thing with my first I can't explain it. Has anyone ever had this craving or something similar?


bellybubble - June 19

Mine has been sweet stuff all the way - nothing wierd in that except when not pregnant I never ate sweet stuff - was more into savoury. No put anything with sugar, chocolate or icecream in front of me and I inhale it!! Mommyof1 - that is a strange craving but I have heard of women wanting to eat soap, dirt and all sorts of wierd and wonderful things - I think I would prefer to have your sponge chewing fetish then the soap and dirt ha ha. Also I think some women want to smell wierd things that they shouldnt like cleaning products and petrol - the pregnant mind and body is a strange strange thing hee hee x


ironmama - June 19

o yeah i have heard of people craving dirt and things like that-- it usually points to a vitamin deficiency of some sort.... i remember when i was pregnant with my son i had been vegan right before, and smelled chicken cooking, and that was the end of that :) i was really big into chicken and peanut b___ter cookies-- craving protein big time. This time around i've been craving bloody steak-- like so bloody it still moos! hahahah

My big weakness is ICECREAM!! I love icecream now, which is weird because before I was pregnant I did not have a sweet tooth at all. And I'm having a girl :) I swear I can eat icecream all day long


softbreeze200 - June 20

Well, going by my cravings I should be having one of each!! At the begging I was so sick that I didn't like anything at all, but once I hit about 6 months and got my appet_te back.. holy man.. I like pretty much anything that I can get my hands on!! Sweet, sour, salty mild, doesn't really matter. But I am having a girl, so I am sure I don't fit into any of the typical catagories!! Lol!! For someone who ate like a bird before preggers.. wow can I pack it away now!! :)


LIN - June 20

No way Precious, when I was pregnant with my son all I wanted was chocolate stuffed with chocolate dipped in chocolates! The darker the better. I normally prefer salty over sweet, too.
