With DD it was cloudy lemonade

With DS it was clear lemonade.

And cake both times.

mrsR1991 Fri 08-Feb-13 16:30:35

oh yes cloudy lemonade was a fave for me! was the closest thing i could get to lemon juice as my partner wouldnt let me have it after a while fearing i would get a stomach ulcer :-/ i am also addicted to primula cheese spread with chives on toast at the mo!! xx

I'm expecting a girl and for the first few months I craved loads of fresh fruit, which I'm normally not that bothered about, and glasses of milk in the middle of the night!
No weird cravings for disgusting things though, I've noticed everyone always expects you to have one like that and people get quite disappointed when you say nope, just fruit I'm afraid!

Snowballs, but that's about it smile Should I be having more cravings?

Dc3 hmmm everything, I currently have eyes bigger than belly .

I'm only 5+5 but last night I had a dream where I was gasping for salt and ended up pouring a whole salt shaker into my mouth. It was similar to those dreams you get about drinking water when you're a bit dehydrated!

And truth is I do want salty things - salty butter on toast mainly!

beckie90 Fri 08-Feb-13 16:34:25

To add to Dc3- eating lots of fruit especially nectrines

PandaWatch Fri 08-Feb-13 16:35:48

In my first trimester it was satsumas and spicy foods. My cravings have now, at 29+2, extended to lots of food. Any food. Soooo hungry - all the time!!

mrsR1991 Fri 08-Feb-13 16:36:14

beckie i swear i am addicted to the smell of fabric softeners whether pg or not! i love the stuff.. i am quite weird actually i could sit there for ages smelling it :-/ hmm wet sponges never heard that one before! xx

clarelou13 Fri 08-Feb-13 16:42:00

Dd1 extra strong mints and smell of hoover.

Rache1S Fri 08-Feb-13 16:44:38

Fizzy orange Fanta, and in the quantity I am drinking it I full expect DD to come out orange hmm

mrsR1991 Fri 08-Feb-13 16:54:06

hehe have to laugh at some of these comments! i find it so weird how our eating habits change so much during pregnancy!! xx

FROSTIES!!! I have about 3 bowls a day with tons of milk... I came down one morning to find my hubby had had the last bowl and I cried, really really sobbed!

Weird...

beckie90 Fri 08-Feb-13 17:04:02

My cousin had the wet sponge one at same time as me Haha I used to want to chew it, but didn't I bought a new 1 specially for smelling Haha xx

34 weeks and no cravings at all, I feel let down!

MisselthwaiteManor Fri 08-Feb-13 17:07:13

I haven't had any one specific thing, I just fixate on something and NEED to have it, then it's onto something else. Right now it's cheesy pasta. I really needed to smell mint sauce for a good few weeks, I bought a squeezy bottle of it and carried it around so I could sniff. Gone off it completely now though.

Countmyblessings Fri 08-Feb-13 17:10:51

Ginger cake with mature cheese yummy!!!!
Oh and peanut butter & choc spread on brown toast!!!
Extra yum its like melted snickers!!!!!

sunnysunnyshine Fri 08-Feb-13 17:15:40

Ice! It's making me so bloody cold! I'm getting through about 10 trays a day. I was the same with dc1 but at least it was summer then...

And as I've got dreadful insomnia, I'm crunching my way through a tray or 2 at night as well.

Why can't I crave something healthy like fruit - something that actually has some nutritional content?!

Oh and Lindt chocolate with sea salt...with extra salt grin

sunnysunnyshine Fri 08-Feb-13 17:17:37

Ooh gonna have to try that melted snickers toast count - sounds amazing!

purrpurr Fri 08-Feb-13 17:17:43

Don't think I've had any cravings - I was expecting to have to send DH out in the middle of the night for a burger or something. Total let down. Now 27 + 5 and I could quite happily survive on hot sweet tea, flame grilled flavour crisps or pringles and the odd bar of snickers, but I do try to eat a healthy balanced diet and I don't cry if I have to miss out on yummy hot tea and crisps. Feel dreadfully guilty most of the time as haven't eaten a single piece of fruit for weeks. Have veg every day but the idea of fruit is very unappealing, whereas I loved the stuff before. Maybe I have Opposite Cravings?

Jollymummy2 Fri 08-Feb-13 17:18:09

With my first DC it was cheddar cheese and strawberry jam sandwiches on white bread. Second DC it was olives by the jar, and 3rd DC was green pot noodles!
With this pregnancy it's tinned potatoes and melted cheese!

purrpurr Fri 08-Feb-13 17:19:03

Ooh did someone say cheesy pasta? Nom nom... Ok I think I'm just craving ANYTHING that probably isn't very good for me! Mmmm paaaaasta

Persuasion Fri 08-Feb-13 17:30:51

In the first few weeks it was beetroot, couldn't get enough, then I suddenly couldn't even look at the stuff!

Since then (now 19+3) they come, and persist until I have the craved thing, then go. So far it's been mostly sweet - jam tarts, doughnuts, vanilla milkshake. I have one a few occasions NEEDED curry (like right now, DH will be pleased!) And I have a persistent low level want for pot noodle, but that's a step too far and I'm ignoring it!

FoofFighter Fri 08-Feb-13 17:36:10

Satsumas in the early weeks, then bland stuff/beige carbs, now it's fish in batter/fishfingers and anything spicy. Although I have to say not really thought they wer cravigns as like things for a day or two then thats it?

More like I am very suggestible and someone has to only mention it/me read it/see it on TV etc and I WANT THAT THING NOW.
