I was wondering if any of you girls are having certain cravings with a boy or girl. Im hoping Im having a girl and just trying to figure out if my cravings are leaning towards me having a boy or girl. Ive been craving watermelon and pineapple and I heard those are girl cravings. Oh and pizza too.

I'm having a girl and my cravings led me to believe I was having a boy. I crave hamburgers, mashed potatoes and watermelon

With DS, I remember craving pizza and chocolate. With DD, lemon/lime stuff and chocolate. With Unknown #3 :), Mexican food and chocolate. Do you see a theme here? With all 3 of them, i've craved deli meat sandwiches and wine/beer. Maybe because I wasn't allowed to have that stuff.

Lurking ~*~ I craved pizza with both pg. With DS, I had to have pizza hut pepperoni personal sized. With this babe (a girl) I have been craving Dominos personal sized BBQ chicken pizza. With this babe I crave watermelon, with DS I craved pineapple (and I HATE pineapple). The biggest difference in cravings is that I wanted more red meats with DS and more mexican foods with him. This babe is sweeter foods and more chicken.

My cravings were very different for both of my pgs. With DS meat, meat, and more meat... I'm a vegetarian : ) Obviously that all went out the window with the pgs... anything savory, like mashed potatos, goat cheeses. The smell of fruit made me run for the hills, Bananas were my favorite until I was pg with DS and then I couldn't even handle walking by them in the grocery, and that continued until pg with DD. Now, with DD, all I want is fruit and fresh foods. Apples, applesauces, pears, bananas, you name it!!! Frozen grapes are my fav this week.- and raw spring rolls with chili paste. Also, for some reason I have been wanting martinis and red wine (so weird!) Good luck!!!!

Earthmama, we DO have a lot in common! (Remember post about feeling movement and showing early?) I'm vegetarian too! I was vegan before this pg but I have to have dairy and eggs. I don't know if I'm going to be vegan after again because I forgot how much easier and yummier it is to be ovo-lacto. I have been craving sour, sour and more SOUR! Grapefruit (not juice), lemonade, limes, virgin margaritas (I wish they weren't virgin, tequila sounds great right now) and sour starbursts. Normally I'm not a drinker but since I can't have alcohol I want it! Lol! I don't know what we're having yet... hopefully a healthy baby! Maybe we'll find out on Thursday.

I craved spicy foods and McDonald's double cheeseburgers with DS. This time around, I can't stand greasy food rather I'm craving fresh fruits & vegetables - and this LO is also a boy :eek:

I find out in 3.5 weeks but I'm thinking girl. I've been craving a lot of fruity stuff, loving watermelon right now and lemon flavor. I have been craving pizza quite a bit but also chinese food oddly enough. It seems that quite a few of the pps that have cravings for fruity foods are thinking girl, so maybe that's a good sign for me!

I have no idea what I'm having but your cravings sound just like mine! I can't get enough watermelon, pineapple, cucumbers and tomatoes (I hate tomatoes). Friday night I made DH drive an hour and 15 min because I wanted pizza from one particular place!! I hope those are girl cravings!!

I usually go by the old wives tales. If you are craving sweets than it is usually a girl. If you are craving salty foods and meats than its a boy. Myself- i just turned 13wks and always crave meat and pickles. I hope you get the girl you want.

Hmm... I guess it depends on the person... I don't know my baby's gender yet... but I can tell you from past pregnancies and others... When I was pregnant with my son, I craved fruit.... especially plums and grapes. I hardly ever got sick. I looooved McDonalds (I normally love Taco Bell). My mom had three girls and one boy. With all three girls, she craved junk food and got semi-sick from the pregancies. When she was pregnant with my brother, she craved fruit and veggies and harldly ever got sick. Right now with this pregnancy, I'm hoping for a boy and I have all the same symptoms as I had with my first son. However, I absolutely can't stand pizza for some reason with this pregnancy and you're craving pizza... hmm... I hope you get a girl!
