Six weeks and craving tomatoes...say what??

Within the past few days, I've noticed a couple Facebook posts such as "I'm six weeks and craving tomatoes." Not only did I find it odd to see such similar posts by numerous Facebook friends, but the fact that none of the girls who posted these are pregnant was also odd. So I decided to investigate.

To begin my investigation, I did what every good detective must do. I googled. Typing in the google search bar, I copied one of the statuses and pasted it to google, and then looked at my results. The very first result said "I'm six weeks and craving tomatoes," and was a question on Yahoo! Answers, so I clicked.
Why were all my friends suddenly craving tomatoes??

The person who had written the post was very confused, as I was, at why friends were posting these out-of-the-ordinary statuses. The second answer on the post, however, unlocked all the mysteries! I learned that these posts are in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. You may remember in past years seeing women post the colors of their bra as their status, or where they like to keep their purse.

According to the post, so many people took part in these status updates last year that it made national news! The key is to not tell any guys what your post means or why your doing it, but to raise awareness your supposed to tell all your girlfriends!
It's because of Breast Cancer Awareness!!

The answer behind the weird statuses is this: you choose your birthday, month and day, and match it to the list below. Then you post as your status: "I'm (your birth month) weeks and I'm craving (your birthday)!"
Example: Feb 14th= I'm 2 weeks and craving Choclolate mints!!
