After a four girl streak we did have two boys - but I don't remember eating differently beforehand. (Though I do attribute #1 son's mane of gorgeous curly hair - and this kid needed his bangs cut the day after his birth - to the cashews and shrimp I was addicted to during that pregnancy. Makes sense to me. :) )
So interesting! I do remember thinking that I wasn't eating as nutritiously before conceiving my two girls...It was the winter and I wasn't eating as many veggies and fruits - somehow the warmer weather makes me crave those foods more!
As a former baby boy, I resent your reference to mothers of boys as "gender-challenged".
I thought this article was really interesting. I'm glad you posted it.
Oh jesusthroughmary! You just love to play semantics... :) By being gender-challenged, I of course mean one could be either boy or girl-challenged!
I almost posted this article as well, especially because I would rather jump out a window than miss breakfast. You DO NOT want to see Texas Mommy on an empty stomach and without coffee in the morning! So maybe more boys are in store unless I stop eating breakfast?!?
I hate eating breakfast and haven't regularly since high school. I have two boys.
I happen to be a cereal-aholic. Maybe that's why we're indundated with boys?! :)
I read this article a few days ago, and my first thought was: yet another piece of scientific evidence to indicate that our Baby #3 probably is a boy. Every scientific/pseudo-scientific gender predictor, from the timing of everything to my diet to the heartrate at each prenatal appointment to some bizarre Chinese calendar my friend swears by, says this baby is a boy. However, my overwhelming maternal instinct throughout this pregnancy has said girl.The ultimate challenge: science versus maternal instinct. Only time shall reveal which is more powerful...
I never miss breakfast. I usually eat hot cereal for breakfast. I have 5 daughters. I don't restrict calories. I guess I don't fit in with study!
