Hey moms. I am pregnant with baby number 2… I don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl, but so far I have had the same aversion to Garlic that I had with my girl. I have a theory to test that seems to work with all my pregnant friends. Tell me about your experience please! YOU CAN CHOOSE MORE THAN ONE ANSWER!
Always loved garlic, and that only intensified when I was pregnant with my DD. I even use garlic salt in my scrambled eggs!
The only smell that I hated when I was pregnant, but didn’t mind when I wasn’t was gasoline. I’m almost completely incapable of filling the gas tank in the car while pregnant. Weird.
Wow - never heard that about garlic.I thought that only pertained to vampires?
I cannot remember garlic.
But I hated the smell of food period.
Well what can I say I threw up all through my pregnancy.
I was totally repulsed by garlic in the first trimester. I wonder if it will continue.
Love garlic and enjoyed it with each pregancy. Oh, I have a DD and DS.
Ok, now you have made me think. I hated the smell of pizza. I had a boy. Now, was it the smell of pizza or the garlic smell that comes with it? I don’t know. I do know that I could NOT walk into a Pizza Hut.
I have always loved garlic whether I was pregnant (boy or girl) or not.
I don’t like garlic right now either, and I’m still just a few weeks pregnant. Everything is making me sick!
I didn’t have an aversion to garlic but I couldn’t stand the smell of eggs. My dislikes and likes didn’t seem to have anything to do with the gender of my child though.
With my oldest son, I couldn’t stand the sight of leafy green vegetables. With my second it was chili. I don’t remember what aversion I had with my daughter, but all three times the sight of raw meat would make me start retching. In order to buy meat for dinner, I would stand with my back to the meat counter while my husband chose the roast. In subsequent years, whenever I thought I might be pregnant, I’d go look at the meat counter to see my reaction. Sort of a free pregnancy test.
Garlic never bothered me in any of my three pregnancies neither boy nor girl .
Loved garlic, and all food in general (humm, that’s maybe why I gained 50 pounds each time?) all three pregnancies.
It was the heartburn afterward that nearly killed me. I am surprised I didn’t get a kidney stone from all of the antacids I was eating!
Always hated garlic so I can’t comment on that…
However, I’ve heard that if you want salty foods = girl
Sweet foods = boy
(or do I have that backwards?) Maybe someone else has heard this also?
Also… heartbeat around 150 = girl
130 = boy
So far the results don’t look too convincing either way!
I’m begining to feel sad now (I guess an evil jealousy) because I LOVE garlic accept when I’m pregnant. I am torturing the people I love. I can’t walk into my mom’s house for 2 days after she’s cooked spaghetti, pizza, lasagna, etc. And I can even smell it on people even if they only ate some croutons in their salad earlier. I have to convince people I really smell it because they think I’m NUTS. If I eat out I take a chance, and I have to tell everyone I visit not to use garlic… It’s so rude! But I CAN’T be near it. I think my problem is that even when I’m not pregnant I have always had an excellent since of smell… so when I’m pregnant it is raised to bomb sniffing dog classification. I’ll keep you posted if it’s a boy or a girl (I think we find out late Oct.)
