Some people will have morning sickness in one pregnancy and then none in another pregnancy. I have heard it speculated that it could be related to the baby's gender. Like you eat meat when you have a boy or feel nauseous towards meat with a girl, etc.

Has anyone experienced this? What are your opinions on this?

I've had several people tell me what I'm going to have because I don't (yet!) have morning sickness.  Funny thing is, some tell me boy while others tell me girl.  This is a total myth, an old wives' tale.  Sickness or lack of it have nothing to do with the gender of the baby.

I don't think that made a difference for me I have one boy and two girls and I craved or disliked different foods through each pregnancy. They were all different. The sickness was different for each of them but I don't think it had anything to do with gender.

I don't think it really matters about the gender. When I was pregnant last year, I was told that progesterone levels have a lot to do with your level of morning sickness. The higher the level, the more sick you tend to be.
