i would like to know everyones cravings smile with my daughter i craved fresh lemon and anything lemon flavoured. with this pregnancy i have suddenly got a craving for brocolli cheese and (not sure on spelling) potato daughinoise! so very different. what were/are your cravings? any weird ones? xx

I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but with DD it was insane. Cravings were pineappke fritters, cream cakes and doughnuts, and Cadbury creme eggs. I had major aversion to cheese and tuna. No healthy cravings!

This time no aversions, and I'm loving mash/boiled potatoes with tinned (?!) peas and gravy, cottage pie, and fresh fruit, particularly apples and fresh orange juice ice lollies, and strawberry volvic water. Very different.

Ds - got a massive sweet tooth (not normal for me). Needed McDonald's strawberry milk shakes a couple of times.

Current pregnancy- malt loaf. Don't fancy anything much at the moment but hoping for a random craving soon!

I knew someone who couldn't stand the colour brown in one of her pregnancies!

Mine was orange juice in the 1st/2nd trimester (I do still slightly crave this but now just gives me horrible heartburn)

And currently seems to be SS milk & bourbon biscuits, I'm getting through 4 pints of milk in less than 2days! DH isn't impressed as there's no milk left when he goes for a coffee, opsie!
Hmmm... 6 in the morning, too early for bourbons??? Xx

Sweets! Sour tangfastics, liquorice oh and mini-eggs smile

Similar to another poster I haven't had cravings as such, more foods that I want to eat loads of, get bored and then move on I something else

So far it's been, tomatoes - baby plum tomatoes, tomato juice, tomato soup. Fizzy-rot your teeth sweets. Cherry bakewells, pickled onion monster munch, Granny Smith apples, cheese scones.
At the moment I'm eating loads of pickles - chutney, gherkins, beet root and ice cream. What a cliche!!

34 weeks!

redredwine84 Mon 18-Feb-13 10:34:14

Haribo's (the sour ones!) mmmmm. I had the little 10p packets stuffed everywhere!

ratbagcatbag Sun 17-Feb-13 11:02:53

First trimester - cereal, buckets of it, anything sweetened, so coco pops, frosties etc. pints and pints of crusha raspberry milkshake, monster munch and tomato soup. Fresh orange juice (like three cartons per day)

Second tri - as above with chocolate, anything chocolate.

Now (34weeks) - milkshake, ready salted crisps on slabs of thick bread and butter and more chocolate which now gives me indigestion. Orange fanta.

Went completely off dinners ad still to really loving them even now.

redandyellowandpinkandgreen Sun 17-Feb-13 10:40:30

I was all about the roast beef and gravy when pregnant with DS and I was still anaemic!

Nothing so far this time.

cupcake78 Sun 17-Feb-13 08:09:00

Big strawberry sweetsgrin. Cheese, cheese oh and more cheese please. Celery, cherry tomatoes, apples oh how I love apples!

Salty Pringles, peanut butter, lemons of any form. Did I mention apples and cheese grin

With ds it was olives, strawberries, ice and the smell of rubber.

sparkle101 Sun 17-Feb-13 08:01:35

With dd it was orange juice, pepperami and prawn cocktail crisps. Serious aversions to McDonald's, salad and a certain type of washing product which I couldn't narrow down. Dh does the washing and sometimes the smell of my newly washed clothes would make me wretch.

With this one, lemonade still for a while, now onto um bongo, and yesterday I ate 5 packets of wotsits in a row. In good news we worked out the fabric conditioner that was making me heave in both pregnancies and that has been banished to the back of the cupboard for another 6 months!

Oh and with both pregnancies it's been sweets, like penny sweet/pick and mix type things. Cue a £25 box of sweets ordering!

Full fat milk....

... strange as I'm lactose intolerant.

(shrugs, then farts....*)

*apologies.

FoofFighter Fri 15-Feb-13 12:58:36

Had a mini fad for guacamole the last couple days smile not got any left though boohoo so no delicousness for me today sad

mrsR1991 Fri 15-Feb-13 12:42:31

ok so my brocolli cheese craving has now ended to be replaced by homous and cola jubbly ice lollies! not together lol! xx

BraveLilBear Mon 11-Feb-13 13:03:33

I'm in the extreme fad camp. Current fad is for cheese ploughmans sandwiches. Cheese salad or cheese and pickle just won't stick it for me. And cheese and onion crisps (the stronger the better) and strawberry cream pencils - those red sweets with white fondanty stuff in the middle.

Also, sparkling water or anything fizzy - still drinks, esp water, make me feel sick.

mrsR1991 Mon 11-Feb-13 11:39:13

someone mentioned cheese and pickle sandwhiches.. i am now thinking of nothing but that and yes my brocolli cheese lol!! xx

NAR4 Sat 09-Feb-13 20:05:06

Craved coke with my first and seriously feared I would have no teeth left by the time I had him.

I had no cravings with my second but DH seriously craved raw onions. He didn't even like onions before.

No cravings with my third but couldn't stand the smell of lamb. DH was banned from eating it throughout my pregnancy.

DC 4 and 5 I loved mashed potato.

Giddypants Sat 09-Feb-13 15:15:16

DS- gravey grannuals, and mustard (can't stand the stuff now)
DC 2 chilli con carne mmmmm

Twinklestarstwinklestars Sat 09-Feb-13 13:27:08

Mine change, although salt and vinegar crisps are a favourite.

At the moment I crave cheese and pickle sandwiches, but it has been cereal, ice lollies and haribo sweets.

twinklesparkles Sat 09-Feb-13 13:04:50

Everything smile

With ds, it was mcdonalds, and sweets (particularly refreshers... Multicoloured morning sickness!!)

With dd (32 weeks now) , its everything ... Just need food grin peking duck pancakes are going down particularly well at the moment .. And sweets smile

SeriousStuff Sat 09-Feb-13 12:35:51

MsBluesky ...following on form my previous post, I think my body definitely needs salt! Went to a dinner party last night and on the way, had to stop for petrol. I sat in the car hoovering up a filthy packet of salt and vinegar crisps! My 'I'm going to eat so healthy' has been catapulted out the window!)

At the meal, I ate a tiny sugar flower off a cake and immediately felt sick. Saliva rushing to my mouth...so I'm definitely off sweet things of any kind!

MyNameIsLola Sat 09-Feb-13 10:36:13

First time I craved fish constantly, I'm vegetarian!

Second time was tomatoes.

Third time I didn't really have any cravings in particular.

This time is fruit, especially grapes and nectarines. At least it's healthy I guess.

LouiseD29 Sat 09-Feb-13 10:27:47

Heinz tomato soup!

mrsR1991 Sat 09-Feb-13 09:01:54

well my brocolli cheese craving is continuing! i made myself some yesterday and all morning i have thought of nothing else so may just have to go make some... smile yum! xx

itsmyfirsteek Fri 08-Feb-13 22:04:15

I haven't eaten meat in 25 years and I crave bacon sarnies! The craving was really strong for 4 weeks and I gave in on new years day and haven't looked back since!

LoganMummy Fri 08-Feb-13 21:39:29

With DS it was Heinz Spaghetti Hoops - ate them for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I'm currently 23+4 and all I want is as much food as possible. I'm just sooooo hungry! grin
