    Are the old wives tales true? Crave sweet things for a girl and savoury for a boy or is it a load of old rubbish?!!!!

    Has anyone had one or more baby and had the same cravings for different sexes or different cravings for the same sex babies?

    I had a craving for Strawberries and cream with Amy, but this one is dried crackers...... Does it mean i am having a boy?

    Well I have eaten my body weight in chocolate and other sweet stuff (DH says what's new) and am having a girl (apparently).

    By the way, my dirty mind thought you were on about something different from the title!!! :lol:

    well i have had liked marmite, peaches, nectarines, plums, apples, tangerines, tomatoes (fresh), the sonographer says a boy, even though i didnt see anything.

    the area around his bits was all fuzzy, so what would the sonographer of seen at 22 weeks to confirm i was carrying a boy.

    Yup, had my nesting day yesterday so the house 'feels' ready for a newborn now, just need to get some more baby towels and that's it.

    DH is off the rest of this week from tomorrow and we're going to do some cooking - cobblers, shepherds pies that sort of thing. Then I've got something tasty and relatively healthy in the freezer so we don't live off rubbish when the baby is first here.

    i cant wait to get to your stage!

    I have been getting the nesting thing aswell i think, we deicded to swap teh kids rooms over, charlie has a big room and Ethan has the small room, so being as we are having another boy we moved them round so Ethan gets teh big room to share in time with Coby.

    its been a long process tho, we started re painting about 3 weeks ago and its still not done coz Jase has been working overtime ready for xmas.

    so today i have spent painting and i think by tomorrow it will be all done, then i can relax a bit.

    you had any twinges or anything?

    This is my first baby and all the way through I have craved sweet things - I have never ate so much chocolate, biscuits, cakes etc as i have done in the last 6 months.

    At Christmas and Easter ususally i end up giving my chocolates and stuff to everyone at work cos I just wasnt a fan of it at all - savoury things like crisps and nibbles has always been my downfall. This year I am counting how many quality street are left!!! we have already got through almost two tins of choclates already - terrrible lol. My thighs will be paying the price for it come April lol lol

    and its a......................................girl!!!!!!

    Other symptons were no sickness at all, lots of spots, lots of crying. Feel sorry for the D/H even our dog is a girl - so he will be the only male in the place - poor thing!!!!!
