This explains it all

BBC NEWS | Health | Boy babies 'boost appetite'. We've recently been gifted with a baby boy, and during my wife's pregnancy, I was just amazed at how much my wife could eat. This recent study suggests that a "male fetus may may secrete a chemical from its developing testicles that stimulates its mother to step up her energy intake." That explains everything. Interesting little read. Sounds like such an old-wives' tale!
