Had a boy.

He eats mainly the protein part of the meal.

I had a boy first and then a girl. Both pregnancies I craved the same things, only the first time the cravings were not strong enough for me to realise that they were cravings, IYSWIM. I craved Marmite, Caesar Salad (but only Somerfield's own! ), butter, Philadelphia cheese and salty foods. Both children love Marmite, ds doesn't like salad, but has recently 'discovered' lettuce and will sometimes eat it, dd loves salad but dislikes lettuce. Ds likes Philly, dd hates it.

dd savoury - salt and vinegar crisps in the first 12wks or so, then ate about 4 bowls of cereal a day although some of the cereals were sweet ones.

dd is so far a good eater loves fruit, not a huge carb fan surprisingly.

this pregnancy - sweet stuff still being occasionally sick at 18wks solved by starburst candies.

saadia Wed 17-Aug-05 15:55:06

craved smoked cheese - neither of the dss like cheese in its raw state, has to be melted into sauces

kid Wed 17-Aug-05 15:57:59

craved sweet food like strawberries and lemon curd - had a girl - she is a fussy eater and will rarely eat any form of potatoes.

craved corn on the cob - had a boy - he eats anything and everything, constantly!

compo Wed 17-Aug-05 15:59:50

no cravings and had boy. Only had 3 weeks of morning sickness.

chloe55 Wed 17-Aug-05 16:14:40

I'm 14 weeks and I crave icecream which I never really touched before pregnancy. Can't stand chewing gum either but always had a piece in my mouth before pregnancy.

sweetheart Wed 17-Aug-05 16:27:22

I craved vinegar with dd.

She likes veg and carbs like potato and pasta.

Is that linked anyway??? She likes to suck lemons too - any connection do you think???

ninah Wed 17-Aug-05 16:29:29

craved rest, lots of pampering and help around the house
got - a demanding toddler a full time job and a dp who can't seem to remember how to use the cooker grrrr

ninah Wed 17-Aug-05 16:31:18

sorry just read the rest of this
oh don't say I'm gonna get a mini chauvenist boy!
teach me to pay attention
With ds craved branston pickle and he eats most things although he says he doesn't like mussels, and he really is not keen on jelly

cleverclogs Wed 17-Aug-05 17:06:39

I'm almost too afraid to admit it but I ate fire lighters!

With me it was mainly smells that I craved, firelighters, petrol and beeswax furniture polish - i still love these things now and will deliberately splash a bit of diesel on my hand when I fill up the car so that i can sniff it on the way home (jesus )

My children are surprisingly normal
