Hi mums to be
anyone else craving cake... I mean it's really bad? Im not usually a big cake fan and I'm savory all the way.
Does this indicate a certain gender maybe?🎂🍰🎂🍰🎂🍰🎂🍰🎂🍰

Im interested to see what people say as this is me also! I was always savory but lately all I want is fresh cream and cakes! sometimes chocolate!

I crave cake really bad and its always choc cake ha-ha so weird.
How many weeks are you? im 24 weeks and everyone keeps saying im having a girl. I could have found out at my 20 week scan but I want a surprise at the end. I think im having a boy though but everyone says girl.
I think cakes and sweets indicate a girl... whats your view?

im currently 33 weeks 2 days and have waited sweets stuff since the start!
Im convinced im having a boy as my bump is all up the front. I get different people saying different things to me on whether they think boy or girl but I think I do get slightly more people saying boy! We are keeping it a surprise also! Just cannot wait to find out, not long left to go!!!!
I would have thought sweet stuff ment girl also! I hope other people share their experiences!!

oh wow so you haven't got long at all then? Is this your first?
its nice to have a surprise dont you think? I reckon im having a boy too. More people say girl, but my partner says boy and the odd few people. I think ill be more shocked if its a boy. I only have one girls name too and no boys names. Really want a girl, but dont want to get my hopes up really.
I have been eating lots more chocolate than normal I guess its a sugar thing. I shouldnt really read into all these old wives tales... im really anxious about labour and birthing I literally turn white when someone talks about it to me.... wish I could just get over the fear, but its not going away.

This is my 1st too! There was a girl at my antenatal class & she said she craved sweet Stuff & had a girl & then craved Chinese food & had a boy! who knows, we just need to be patient and wait and see!! i honestly don't care what im having but will be shocked if it's a girl as I hav convinced myself it's a boy!!
I try & not think about labour too much and try & think of the good stories I have heard about other peoples births! I think I will get an epidural though, have u thought about pain relief? Xx

you both know I'm having a boy but I have been craving cake! I also eat a lot more chocolate now (never really liked chocolate before!)
that said, everything online says sweet things is normally girls. i think I'm bucking a trend! I blame his dad as he would eat cake for every meal given half a chance!!
Can't wait to see what you both have!

Sweet treats are meant to mean girl while savoury means boy.
I did crave chocolate & orange ice poles with my Eldest (girl), Mint ice cream & cheesecake with the Youngest (girl) & have been craving mint, peanut butter & pizza this time (boy/girl twins).
That said, it is just a bit of a fun guess much like the Chinese calendar & seeing magpies

I am having a girl and have been craving both sweet and savoury things, although sweet is much more unusual for me as I don't normally really have a sweet tooth. I know what you mean about cake though! It is normally one of my least favourite foods in the world but I have fancied it on and off since being pregnant. I saw a blueberry muffin on TV a few days ago and then simply had to buy one yesterday.
Not sure if it's a genuine craving or because I subconsciously feel less guilty about eating a bit more than usual (I used to avoid sweet treats like the plague before I was pregnant)?
I'm 23 weeks now and my savoury cravings have been for cheese, guacamole, Marmite on toast, beans/pulses and chips!

I crave choc and cake SO bad today I have had kit kat and flake LOOOOL
I went to my Consultancy Midwife appointment yesterday with regards to fear of labour. she suggested the best thing for me is a water birth, so introduced me to the birthing pool etc and now I think im swaying more to the idea. I dont want to give birth regardless but baby has to come out.
Not knowing the gender is still driving me bonkers so im still team yellow
Im 24 weeks craving Cake, Choc, Cheese and Apples - RANDOM!!!!!!
I got a feeling im having a boy, but EVERYONE keeps saying girl. even the midwife yesterday said 'I think girl' ha=ha dont want to get my hopes up xx

kazzie- funny you craved the sweet things. Im
ususlly a big savory girl but cake n sweets I cannot get enough of honestly. I do honestly believe that the cravings have something to do with the gender because male n female have different hormones. I'll b shocked if I have a boy.
omg are you expecting twins?? Wow that's amazing what names do you have?
