    hi

    just a bit of fun to see if there is a pattern forming.

    im 18 weeks still sick in the morning, craving peanut butter cheese and cream cakes, as yet im not sure what im having as im only 18 weeks.....but i think a boy.

    what cravings or sickness have you all had, and do you know the sex of the baby?

    I have no cravings and I have had extreme sickness - but I don't know what I am having and won't find out till I give birth

    My sister has bad sickness too and no cravings and she had a boy.

    I don't think sickness and cravings do determine what you are having - I presonally think it is an old wives tale.

    I have been dead keen on anything minty since I was about 11 weeks. I haven't had much sickness and no other cravings. No idea if all this can tell you gender, but for some reason my Husband and I are convinced we are having a girl. *shrugs*

    I havent had any sickness at all and no cravings really - we arent finding out until the birth what the sex is.

    My sister was the same and she had a boy.

    With both my girls i craved fish. with my son i craved steak pie and mash gravey with green veg (sprouts) had this at 7am every morning. so when these cravings for pies came back i guessed a boy and was right. the m/s was worse and lasted all day and for longer in pregnancy with boys.

    With Mason I didn't know I was pregnant till I was 17 weeks so didn't notice and cravings!

    With Brody I craved oranges, orange juice, orange lollies and orangeade.

    With this one (another boy) I haven't craved oranges at all but milk and chocolate and sweet things :)

    Sickness wise I think I was a bit sicky at first with all of them until maybe 15 weeks then it went away.
