does anyone else have this craving. i heard its really common. i feel like i cant get enough of it. expecially in the last couple weeks. This is my second child and with my first i didnt have any cravings so this food craving thing is totally new to me. My friend says that means im having a boy lol...maybe thats just wishful thinking.

LOL! With my second and third I could drink a litre or more a day!!! I thought they were going to be born orange!

But I don't think it has anything to do with gender - I had 3 girls and craved apples with the first and orange juice with the next 2. They were bigger babies - maybe the sugar from the juice had something to do with that!

I drink gallons and gallons of OJ. I think God gave me this craving so I would make it through the "sick season"! Sorry, every ultrasound I've had thus far (6!) has shown a little girl.

I heard an old wives tale is if you crave spicy foods its a boy and sweets your having a girl. This is my second girl and both of them I craved more fruits and sweets.

I had that craving with my first pregnancy like crazy and I had a boy.First thing I did in the morning was get the OJ. I limited it to morning if I could stand it though because of the sugar content. As soon as I had him the craving went away - I thought it was in my head until I just stopped wanting it which confirmed that it really was a craving...

I have the OJ craving this time too but not as strong. There are worse things to crave (like ice cream which I'm all over this pregnancy, also a boy)

This is my second pregnancy, but I craved orange juice with both pregnancies. I crave oranges, pineapple, and peaches. You might want to try pineapple juice if you get tired of drinking orange juice. Both do the trick for me. Hang in there! I heard that when a woman is pregnant with a girl she craves sweet things with a boy salty things. LOL!

I did that with both pregnancies. But more so with this one. I guess its because of the folic acid in the orange juice. Unfortunately I couldnt drink oj as much as I wanted to because it always made me feel really sick afterward.
