So I’ve read two things recently and wonder what the Hive’s experience is…
–The more severe the MS, the more likely you are to have a girl
–You are more likely to have food aversions if you are having a boy
So, based on the scale below for nausea, did you have a girl?
0-none 1- mild 2- moderate 3- severe 4- great 5- vomiting
Also, based on the scale below for food aversion, did you have a boy?
0-none 1- mild 2- moderate 3- severe 4- great

Hmm……I had morning sickness regularly for a few months. It wasn’t anything too severe, just in the morning, especially after riding in a car. Brushing my teeth used to make me gag too. Very frustrating.
I also had an aversion to soda, whick was very odd, because I loved it until then. It made me sick when I was pregnant though.(a good thing I think).
I’d say maybe a 2 on for MS and a 1 for food aversion? I had a girl.

KoiKove: I had severe morning sickness with my girl and mild with my boy. I had no food aversions with either. On the contrary, I wanted it all (when I wasn’t wretching).

I used to almost vomit, or actually end up vomitting, every time I brushed my teeth from 6-17 weeks. I had to have a bottle of water next to me so that I could chug it after brushing my teeth. That only sometimes helped. The worst part was that I had to retry brushing my teeth after barfing. Blehhh. I also had MS return around the 34 week point, no more vomitting though. I didn’t have many food aversions, although I would often think something sounded good until I went to take a bite. This happened to me with eggs and cream cheese bagels. I had a girl.

KoiKove: I had tons of food aversion and no nausea, and I had a beautiful baby girl. Everyone was convinced I was having a boy though.

KoiKove: I had moderate/severe (I had to take Zofran) nausea and moderate food aversions (could not eat anything sugary) until about 15 weeks! I am pregnant with a girl! 🙂

I had severe morning sickness, where I was throwing up all day for 2 weeks straight, though part of that was I got pregnant on birth control, and the hormones were rushing through me. I also had severe food aversion up until recently (I’m 21 weeks). We’re having a little boy.

Sorry to side track but….enmeek: my friend got pregnant while on birth control and is having terrible MS…I never knew that could be why! curious- did your dr tell you that? I’m sure she would be happy to know there is a reason for her extreme sickness!!

First pregnancy: I vomited multiple times per day nearly every day from 6 weeks to 16 weeks. I also had severe food aversions — basically I hated the sight/smell/taste of everything except, occasionally, ramen. I had a girl.
Second pregnancy: Same story with the vomiting and the food aversions, although possibly even worse? I lost a bit more weight this time around. I don’t know what I’m having yet.
It seems like nausea and food aversions go hand-in-hand, so… that might be a flaw in this theory? I have heard that there is some evidence that severe MS occurs more frequently with girls, because of the estrogen overdose the mother is dealing with. Seems like a weak theiry, too, though, given that tons of mothers pregnant with boys have terrible MS.

Two pregnancies, one girl & one boy. Had some nausea but not throwing up bothe pregnancies. I liked nachos, potatoes, and cheese with my girl and I liked nachos, potatoes, and cheese with my boy! I actually like all of those things when I’m not pregnant… anyway, I think I did tend to crave saltier foods with my daughter and sweeter foods with my son, but not to any sort of extreme.

I had ZERO morning sickness and the only food aversion was I stopped liking to eat eggs and I had a boy.

I had zero morning sickness, only gagged a few times while brushing my teeth if that counts, and had no food aversions except a slight one to eggs for a few weeks. I had a boy.

I had very little morning sickness with each of my 2 pregnancies and had healthy girls. With my first pregnancy I could not eat chicken,
