Hi MoM, I’m currently 10 weeks pregnant and am craving tomatoes! I have been told it could mean I am having a boy but just wondering what other Mums experienced when pregnant and if they had a little girl or a little boy – just a fun one, I know cravings arent always right :) thanks MoM, love your community.

  • It is just a myth nothing else

  • I craved salt and vinegar chips with my first pregnancy, it was a boy. I can’t remember having any cravings with my second, which was a girl

  • I am craving for tomatoes n am having a girl

  • No, just an old wives ate, I think!

  • They used to say dairy products mean it’s a boy!!

  • Well I HATE tomatoes. And I mean HATE! but with my last pregnancy I could not get enoufg of them.

    Got a 1 ye old boy! Lol. Dint crave them at all during my daughters pregnancy mainly broccoli.

  • I craved fruit and soup with my first daughter (and she loves those now) but not really anything in particular for the next one. Maybe pizza.

  • I don’t think it makes any difference in that regard. I only had cravings with my second bub. I ate lots and lots of corned beef and pickle sandwiches and loved drinking orange juice . my eldest son is mad about corned beef and pickles! lol!!!

  • I lost my sweet tooth when pregnant.
    Had a boy.

  • Can’t comment on the tomatoes but I craved savoury, particularly curries, while pregnant with a girl and sweet while pregnant with my son. Chocolate cake was my fave. In fact, unbaked chocolate cake mix was even better.

  • With my daughter I craved roast potatoes and whoppers. With my son I craved pickles and eggs. Honestly don’t think cravings can predict the sex.

  • Ive had two boys and my cravings were all over the shop
    With my first I craved sweet things like donuts and then anything with melted cheese
    With my second I craved red apples, I ate them by the bag full, then I was craving bacon
    Lots and lots of bacon

  • Nope wouldn’t make a difference I’ve had three girls and craved differently with each of them.

  • I craved tomatoes and I am having a girl!

  • I am 20 + 1 and have been craving tomato’s and tomato soup the whole pregnancy. We are going for scan tomorrow, I will come back and let you know if it is a boy or girl.
