Hmmm on our 1st we didnt find out so we were none the wiser...i was sooooo sick i didnt eat anythin at the begining but wen i was feelin ok i had cravings for onion ring crisps, tomatoes & crusty bread lol i couldnt stand chinese take away the smell make me feel sick! Or spaghetti bolognese. Then we had a beautiful baby boy. Now im 28 wks pg with baby#2 & although i was sick at the begining im fine now & enjoy all foods but crave sweet things, love bit pink lady apples...which wen u read up usually means ur havin a girl. Were not were havin another boy according to scan hehe. So diff pregnancies with same sex babies...go figure!! hmm

With my boy I craved vegetables (even had a bowl of Brussels sprouts at 3am one time)
I was skinny with a neat bump.

I have a daughter and I'm pregnant with our third (another daughter)
Cravings have been fatty crappy sugary foods. I'm fat and uncomfortable.
I have extremely bad heartburn and indigestion and sometimes bad constipation :-(

So the boy was a breeze, the girls not.

17 weeks pregnant with my first - just found out its a girl. Very tired and been nauseous up until now but hardly sick at all. Craving carbs like crumpets and toast, can't stand a lot of fruits and veggies which is weird - never been a big carb person and always liked my fruits and veggies. Also had bad back pain and pressure between my hips smile

First was a boy - same as PP I went of bolegnese and really tomato-y sauces, this time round I'm having a girl (when she decides to make an appearance, I was due Monday!) and I've craved fresh orange juice x

Oh Thea sound familiar I've been craving sweeter things and I've gone of spag Bol, onions and anything really meaty I can't stop drinking orange juice and I looooove red apples! And yogurt haha thanks for some of these TBH I think I'm having a girl

user68753367 Wed 22-Feb-17 21:23:17

Yeah I'm very tired also ! To the extreme haha

Twin boys - I craved food, all food! Sugary, salty, food!!!!!!
A particular favourite was French fancies (the pink ones in particular) dipped in guacamole.

user68753367 Wed 22-Feb-17 21:30:48

It's funny you should say that j ate a full packet on Valentine's Day haha the pink ones also

user68753367 Wed 22-Feb-17 21:31:14

Everyday it's something different but I know what not to eat now because of heartburn

With my boys I looked amazing (like a post orgasmic Swedish tennis player, according to dh) but felt awful, exhausted, all the way through. With my dd I looked horrific, bags under eyes, greasy hair, acne etc but I felt fabulous, really healthy and full of beans.

Girl- carried all over (ass and face especially), craved sweets, and mint ice cream
Boys- carried all at the front like a beach ball under my dress, craved beetroot in vinegar with ds 1 and cheese toasted with bbq sauce with ds2. Apparently craving vinegar is a sign of vitamin and mineral deficit which wouldn't surprise me as I was desperately sick for the first 4-5 months with both boys.

user68753367 Wed 22-Feb-17 22:17:24

Well I've had awful skin and I'm using my usual hair stuff that makes it shiny and healthy but lately it looks so dull !
My thighs and bottom are gaining most of the weight my DP loves how I looks says he's never seen anyone so sexy haha I don't know if he means it or is trying to make me feel less of a whale than I do haha grin

First pregnancy I craved full fat coke and gained 4 stones by drinking so much of it and any other sweet thing I could get my hands on, went totally off curry, not much morning sickness and felt pretty normal throughout, apart from a bump I didn't feel much different. I had a girl.

2nd pregnancy was polar opposite, I hated sweet stuff and just wanted meat and savoury things, awful debilitating morning sickness and soooo tired. Had another girl. smile

26 weeks with a boy and I have craved citrus throughout. To a lesser extent now but for a while all I wanted to eat was oranges and lemons.
