With my girl - I craved sugary cereals like fruity pebbles, lucky charms, etc. and italian ices.
I was so sick with my son that I had a hard time keeping food down. The only thing that seemed to be easy on my stomach was Subway sandwiches! I know "cold cuts are not good" but it was all I could keep down. Funny thing is now he is almost 4 years old and loves Subway!

I craved a lot of sweet stuff like cakes and loads of jellies i was also craving smoothies and now am on yoghurts i go through a pack a day of yoghurts !! i read up to see what you crave if you have a girl or boy and it said girls are more of sweet tooth and boys are more savory, but i found out that i was having a boy, all the things you get told about girl or boy is just lies because i was so convinced that i was having a girl but no im having a little boy :)

During my first pregnancy, (baby girl), I craved strawberries and icecream. I don't remember being very nauseous but I was always hungry. Now with my second pregnancy I am so very nauseous and hungry (which is so hard because how do you eat when everything makes you gag!) But I have been craving peaches and yogurt.

seven weeks....very queasy...no desire for food...but McDonald's nuggets and fries went down nicely (and then the queasiness came back). I craved bread with my son...this time...just sick. I want a girl...and she is SO grounded for doing this to me!

With My first girl I didn't really crave a lot, I just ate like it was my last meal, ALL the time. But if I smelled French fries at a fast food place I HAD TO HAVE THEM!! With my second Daughter it was ice cream and soda... I couldn't get enough. I lived off ice cream. So far I want tunafish and pickles... I am only 6 weeks and at the point where anything that smells makes me sick, but I can eat pickles, the only thing I kept down yesterday. SO maybe this is our boy!!
I remembered with both my girls I craved spicy foods, like the peppers in the pizza box, I would ask for extras!!! Hot sauce and red pepper flakes on EVERYTHING...

I'm only 7 wks along but so far I'm craving ice cream so bad. I want the creamy soft-serve kind the most. I've already gained some weight so I'm trying to go to the gym more and walk to keep active. Being on this site definitely helps keep me in check with getting enough of the good stuff. But I still crave ice cream and it soothes my stomach and feels good.

I don't really have any aversions, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE salads! I always ate healthy before, but I can't get enough of my leafy green friends!
Any guesses on the gender?
Have a great day. :)

I'm 7 weeks along too and I am craving carb heavy foods like bean burritos, spaghetti, and mac and cheese. The thought of chicken, which I ate often before becoming pregnant, makes me sick. Even vegetables (of all kinds) sound gross and I loved them before. I have a horrible aversion to coffee too, which I couldn't be without before. It's ironic that the things I should be eating now (lean proteins and veggies) are so repulsive to me that I couldn't even force them down. I'm also craving popsicles and guacamole. The other day I had a craving for deviled eggs so I made a batch. How random is that? I don't think I've have those since I was a child! This is all so weird!

I'm only 7 weeks along and have really lost my appetite. The only thing I can really get excited about is cool, refreshing sour things like lemonade, lemon pie, grapefruit, or cool ranch chips. Any guesses?

Hmmm. First pregnancy 11 years ago, I craved anything I could actually keep down, lol! I was super sick. I used to McD's cheeseburger; I craved one in early pregnancy, took one bite, and have an aversion to it ever since. By mid-pregnancy, I wanted ice- Sonic's crushed ice, by the bucket. Even during labor, I sent them to Sonic for ice! I drank loads of water which was something I hadn't done before. I became a water connosior- I could tell if it was city or filtered water. Whether the filter needed changing and by how much. Whether it was a Brita or Pur. It was nuts. Baby was a girl.
This pregnancy, 1st and 3rd trimester I couldn't eat anything sweet- and I have a sweet tooth! Sweets made me so sick. I could handle canned mandarin oranges most of the time as a compromise (canned with water and sugar). I wanted a lot cheese and deli meats mostly. A lot of cheese- different cheeses- became a cheese freak. I also couldn't stand some types of salsas or hot sauces- I was very particular (I live in an area where salsa's are the norm). But basically, I would eat anything I had a mind to- after thinking it over a bit and determining whether my stomach was turning at the idea! End of 2nd trimester, I made up for the sweet strike with all kinds of cookies! I thought for sure I was going to have a boy- she came out a girl!
With God, all things are possible.

Baby girl number one, it was pizza. I loved pizza. Closer to the end of my pregnancy, I had to have a drink of coke everyday. Just one drink would make me feel fine. Baby girl number two, I was so super sick in the beginning, and all I wanted to eat was tomatoes. Imagine the worst sickness ever with nothing but tomatoes on your tummy. Then, I went through this cinnamon phase with her. I was trying everything that could think of to appease my cinnamon craving. If I could have just eaten a container of cinnamon without burning my tongue off, then I definitely would have. Now, I'm having a boy. At the beginning, I really just craved french fries. I mostly eat cereal but I don't really crave it, I just like it. This baby, has pretty much turned me into a professional eater. I never ate this much with the girls.

With all of my boys, especially the first - cheese. Salty and savory. With this last one, Pringles chips. And aversion to apples, tea, coffee, chocolate. Also with all of them I craved beetroot very early on, before I even knew I was prego. And went through a stage of craving oranges/marmalade.
With my first I drank a LOT of fruit frappes but that was because it was ridiculously hot and I was commuting to work. Don't think it was related to pregnancy particularly!
5/10/11 4:50 P
With my first (girl) it was sweets! Pastries, cookies, ice cream, cakes, brownies, I was constantly baking!
With this one (boy) it's anything salty. I'm so surprised I'm not swelling like a balloon, because I'm on a salt overload. Potato chips, crackers, fried chicken, etc. BUT I've been on a HUGE fruit kick this entire pregnancy.
So.. my girl was sweets. My boy is salty foods and fruits.

I have a boy, and while I was pregnant, I craved barbecued spare ribs and beef short ribs the entire first 3 months of my pregnancy. I made DH take me to the rib joint at least once a week for ribs for those first 3 months! Then the rest of the pregnancy, I didn't have any cravings. Strange!

SOrry - I had two COMPLETELY different pregnancies and had boys both times! I had testosterone-filled dreams with #1, and overly-emotional dreams with #2. I craved tomatoes and typical fruits of every kind with #1, and I craved S'mores with #2. WAY more tired with #1, more energy and spring in my step with #2. I had a MAJOR aversion to ground beef with #1 - couldn't stand the sight, smell, taste for the entire 9 months. Interestingly enough, when my SIL brought me a MommaBurger from A&W when she came to the hospital to see #1 for the first time, I ate it without even thinking about it. Afterwards, I thought - WOW! That was the first burger I had in almost a year! For #2 I had the strangest aversion to my favourite veggie combo - broccoli and cauliflower. We get teased at our house for eating (and serving) it so very often, but I couldn't bring myself to eat it for the whole pregnancy.
I was SO sure I was having a girl the second time that I patted my belly on the way to the ultrasound saying, "So, Elizabeth, are you going to show us your goods today?" On the way home (after finding out it was a BOY) I was definitely apologizing. :)

With my girls I couldn't even LOOK at Chicken until my 6th month. I still had an aversion to it at night until I got pregnant with the twins. I don't know what my little angels where but from the start I craved BBQ Chicken Legs and Bean Burritos! On that alone I know in my heart they where boys.
My girls on the other hand...Fruit, Honey Nut Cherrios and McDonald's....OH and Ice Cream!
5/1/11 4:40 P
I don't really crave anything, its a girl. Like Amber I have always loved ice cream and I have probably been indulging in it a bit more now since I've been pregnant.
5/1/11 12:34 P
Well I wish I could say I craved (and are craving) ice cream, but in reality, I just love it! I think I use my pregnancies as an excuse to over indulge in the creamy goodness!
I never did have any real cravings with my first two, but with this third one I seem to be drawn to fish and seafood (is seafood safe during pregnancy?).

I posted this in June 2011 team when before I knew what I was having! lol I am having a BOY and have craved celery, cheese, olives and pickles, and spicy food. I hated milk in my first tri (which was sad because I always LOVED milk) but lately I cannot get enough of it! Also new: Beef. (I have always enjoyed meat on occassion but was more of a veggie type)
side note: AVERSIONS: chicken, chicken, garlic and onions, oh and CHICKEN lol.

Just like you, I craved healthy foods (mostly fruits) with my daughter and with this one, a boy, I can't get enough fast food hamburgers. And candy. And cookies. And it is evident by my weight gain this time compared to last time...
