Cravings: sugar = girl; salt = boy?

I've heard that during pregnancy if you crave a lot of sweets and sugary foods you will most likely have a girl, and if you crave a lot of salty foods you will probably have a boy?

Has anyone ever heard this before, and is there any truth to it?

Thanks!

Re: Cravings: sugar = girl; salt = boy?

I am having a boy and I had to cut back on salt because I wanted so much of it! I could care less about sugar and actually now sugar is making me sick.

I have been craving sweets left and right. Cheesecakes, candy, ice cream, and more. Dr. say I'm having a girl so maybe there is some truth to that.

Re: Cravings: sugar = girl; salt = boy?

I'm having a boy and my sweet tooth has gone into overdrive. I couldn't care less about salty stuff. Maybe it's true in many cases, but not for all people!

Interesting. The results seem to be mixed. Maybe it is just an old wive's tale. I'd still be interested to know if it holds true at least MOST of the time if, obviously, not all of the time.

Too soon to say yet what I'm going to have, but I crave salt like it's nobody's business can couldn't care less for sweets anymore.

Re: Cravings: sugar = girl; salt = boy?

With my daughter i craved any thing sweet the more the merrier and pizza, I had an aversion to meat and veggies. Now this time not sure what I am having yet but I want salt and eggs and prunes. Who knows?

Re: Cravings: sugar = girl; salt = boy?

I am having a girl and it isnt that I crave items, but if given the choice I would take something sour over something sweet. So who knows

Re: Cravings: sugar = girl; salt = boy?

Well I can testify...I was a sweet aholic before pregnancy and I have not wanted sugar up until just recently. I am 24 wks tomorrow and having a boy. I definitely have wanted salts more than sugar up until this point, but I still think there is a lot of myth to all of this.
