Pregnancy: Cravings and gender prediction

I don't get hungry that often ever since I enter the second trimester. I stopped snacking in the middle of the night, I can bear with rumbling stomach until I get proper food.

The other day I was sitting and thinking about the blogs I read about pregnancy, about their instant cravings and so. So I was analyzing and flashing back if I have certain cravings. I noticed I took a lot of spicy food lately. I love anything spicy. The spicier the better. It's a well-known fact that I opt for ketchup over chilli sauce, but lately, I converted.

And the very minute, I have the image of HOT TOMYUM BEEHOON in my head. The image danced around in my head and made my mouth water. Then my stomach started to rumble that it actually hurt! I NEED TOMYUM NOW! And within the 20 minutes, I was happily sitting in a malay stall nearby having a nice hot bowl of hot-spicy-sourish tomyum beehoon.

I was a happy girl.

Curiously, I went Google-ing for the causes of cravings during pregnancy and guess what:

"More pregnant women than ever are craving strange foods according to research released today, and their choices can even indicate the sex of their unborn child. The research also revealed that women pregnant with boys tended to crave spicy food the most whereas women carrying girls opted for chocolate." - source

But.. I crave for chocolates too, although not that bad as my cravings for spicy food.. Does that really mean I'm carrying babyboy?

And earlier today I came across another website that had Chinese Gender Chart Prediction tool, claimed to be 90% accurate. So I tried and guess what?

It's a girl this time!

Monthly checkup in another 2 more days, give mummy a surprise ok? ;)

Hmm, girls or boys also nvm, as long as healthy ma! Anyway, you prefer girl girl or boy boy as 1st child?
