Am having massive cereal cravings! I just can't stop! Anyone else having the same cravings and what gender are you/did you have?

When I was pregnant I had to eat the little variety pack boxs 2 different ones in the same dish,I had a boy

Coco pops & honey cheerios here. It was a boy. I hate cereal!

Constantlurker Tue 30-May-17 16:29:27

Cocopops!! And those Krave things. Honestly the worst most sugary crap but dang it tastes so good!

I could eat 100 bowls and I'm only 11+3. God help me!

With my second (boy) I craved coco pops and im craving it like mad this time round too! (also boy!).... maybe its a boy thing lol

I'm having a girl and this time I can't stop eating Rice Krispies. I haven't eaten them for years - haven't eaten cereal for years full stop.

Coco pops and I'm having a girl.

Never usually touch cereal!

LadyMaryofDownt0n Tue 30-May-17 17:25:55

I craved Rice Krispies like crazy, I'd go through a box every other day..... I had a boy!

Haven't eaten them since.

Weetabix chocolate chip minis and the bad choco crisp cereal for Aldi!

I'm having a boy...I'm 40+6 and all my cereal has run out. Now I might have to go out and get some!!

Milk with my boy - I drank pints a day. Cereal was just a way to justify having some more milk!

I ate a lot of crunchy nut cornflakes whilst pregnant with my son.

He eats an awful lot of cereal now as a teenager so he was obviously egging me on from in there.

Cornflakes (has to be Kellogg's!) and ice cold milk. It's pretty much the only craving I have. Sometimes with a teaspoon of sugar on top but mostly just as they are. 38+5 with a girl.

Llamacorn Tue 30-May-17 18:13:51

Mine was crunchy nut cornflakes and i had a girl (10 years ago mind you)

I wonder if dairy is just a fairly common craving and we are getting our cravings satisfied by the ilk on cereal? Just wondering because I am eating tonnes of yoghurt too. Loads of it. Like a massive pot per day.

AdalindSchade Tue 30-May-17 18:54:33

Dairy and sugar are pretty common cravings during pregnancy. That doesn't have any connection to what sex your baby is. I know I know just a bit of fun

How odd! I'm just about to go out for a box of Rice Krispies, I'm desperate for them. I'm having a girl smile

Oysterbabe Tue 30-May-17 19:20:53

I'm not sure cereal cravings indicate a particular sex smile They're just a nice bland carb.
Weetabix first time and I had a girl. Cornflakes this time and I'll find out the sex in December.

2017Babyontheway Tue 30-May-17 19:40:30

I like mine dry straight from the box! 🙈🙈

I know there's no correlation between the cereal and gender! Just a bit of fun! Alot of people said because I'm craving the sweetness of crunchy nut cornflakes (just devoured my second box since Saturday! 🙊) that I'm having a girl.

bakingmad83 Tue 30-May-17 20:30:10

This time round I've gone right off cereal. Would usually just have porridge or Weetabix, but don't fancy sweeter cereals either. 20wk scan not for another 4 weeks to find out.

AmyB1986 Tue 30-May-17 20:54:35

With all my pregnancies (all girls) I've craved cereals. Crunchy nut cornflakes and honey cheerios are the ones I can't keep my hands off! At one point with dd1 I was eating a box of cheerios a day!

GrumpySusan Tue 30-May-17 20:54:36

Crunchy nut cornflakes & a girl here too!

marmitecheesetoast Tue 30-May-17 20:57:43

Couldn't stop eating cornflakes when I was pregnant, don't normally touch cereal. Was convinced I was having a boy but turned out to albr a girl! I think the ice cold milk was definitely part of the craving too though

DrivingMeDaisy Tue 30-May-17 20:59:41

Never eat cereal but crave cornflakes with all 3 pregnancies....I've 3 girls smile

katonic Tue 30-May-17 23:40:09

Fruit and fibre for me, but I agree I think it's the milk thing, wouldn't drink a glass on its own but with cereal it is irresistible! Having a girl...
