I know that every pregnancy is different and that differences in pregnancy does not mean differences in gender. One of the reasons I know that is because my mother had two very different pregnancies and two girls. Regardless, from observations on this, my third pregnancy to last past the first trimester, I can compare and contrast it with my previous two and draw some conclusions.
With the mackerdoodle I wanted Burger King breakfast every morning and craved things like Arby’s beef and cheddar sandwiches, poutine, and Taco Bell. With the cheesedoodle I wanted oatmeal and bear claws and cream cheese danishes for breakfast and craved Sonic cream slushes.
This time around I’m wanting sausage biscuits, eggs and cheese sandwiches. While I have no desire to eat at Taco Bell, I have made a small pot of chili cheese dip for my supper on two different occasions. Yesterday I made a toasted tomato sandwich and it was SO GOOD that I made three more! Three! I know tomatoes are good for you, but all that bread can’t be healthy. And typing poutine up there has made me want it! Mmmmmm. My mouth is watering.
Interestingly, with both the mackerdoodle and the cheesedoodle I wanted ice cream. I’m not a big ice cream eater, so Jonathan really noticed it with both pregnancies, and has noticed that it hasn’t returned this time around. With both past pregnancies I had an aversion to drinking milk, which has been completely reversed this time around.
So every pregnancy is different, but my prediction right now based on past indicators is that I’m having a girl. In six to eight weeks, we’ll know if I’m right or not, but I thought I’d put my prediction out there, just to see if I’m as smart as I think I am.
