Old wives tale but....

I know it's an old wives tale but....it says if you crave salty it's a boy and if you crave sweet it's a girl. Has this been true for anyone?? Either with this or previous pregnancies. I know that my last 2 (both girls) I did crave sweet but I don't remember with my first 3 (girls also) lol
What is your experience??

Re: Old wives tale but....

well so far with DD I have been craving more sweet then salty... But my main craving the last few weeks is a decaf caramel frappe and fries. lol I know its SOOOOO bad for me but what can you do? I didnt really crave much with DS but i guess it was more spicy food so yea I would say it has been true for me as well.

Not true for me. I craved salt (like eat it straight out of the shaker) with all four pregnancies. I have four girls!

I craved sweet with my first boy, and fruit and nuts with my twin boys, but it was UN salted nuts. So I guess not true in my case.

Last pregnancy with DD my top craving was softserve, although I did enjoy spicy foods. This time it's definitely more salty foods- if it is pickled, I love it: spicy and pickled even better! My anatomy scan is in a week so I'll find out soon enough if the adage is true for me.
