There is the string test. Dangle a string over your ring finger. If it goes in a circle it is a girl, if is swings back and fourth, it is a boy. This has worked with several of my friends and myself (I'm expecting a girl). But, you only have a few more weeks before you find out for real. Congrads and good luck!

I also craved fruit like crazy when pregnant with my daughter... she's my only one though so I don't have anything to compare it to.

My husband has a theory involving the night of conception, but I won't post that one here... lol. I craved salt with my first girl and sweets with my second girl... so that isn't entirely true (what you eat does effect what they will like when they come out though... My children LOVE what ever I ate when I was pregnant... they crave now what I put into my body then, so be careful... I wanted fruit with both of my girls and vegetables with my second and I ended up with fruit and veggie addicts). I honestly don't think there is any positive way to tell the sex of the baby, and although my husband disagrees with this (he has been right on every baby I know), its probably best to not get your hopes up for one particular sex. Pray for a healthy baby and be pleasantly surprised two weeks from now.

i heard that if you crave salt then it's a girl, opposite if u crave sweets it's a boy (i crave sweets lol) you only have about 2 more weeks of waiting!! and it's worth it. when they told me my heart stopped!
