Richmond sausages. God know what is in them and god the fat that comes out of them but I could eat a dozen in a heart beat !!

Ice cubes and refreshers as well as sniffing bleach.

Breakfast cereals with ice cold milk. Shreddies being my favourite. I would have about 5 different types in the cupboard, and eat 3-4 bowls in a row.

It then moved on to wanting anything sickly sweet. Previously although I liked chocolate, I could only eat small amounts. When pregnant I could eat tons of really sickly mars bars etc.

ds sour cream and chives dip

dd1 ice and orange

dd2 ice innocent or copella orange large bottle a day! and any chocolate that contained peanut butter kit kats/reeses

Avocados. Would even buy avocado oil use is as stretch mark oil, literally cover myself in it after a shower-sometimes twice a day grin

SomethingOnce nope! 3 boys! Funny you should ask though as I kept getting told that orange juice was a girl-type craving. Pooh I craved gin and cigarettes with DS2. Very odd as haven't smoked for donkeys years and usually hate the smell now. I kept those cravings quiet from my rather catsbum mouth midwife! grin

With dd was ice lollies and satsumas.

DS was sausage and mash although I don't like sausages, that's why am thinking g this a boy now. I also crunched Ice cubes and messed up all of my teeth! Wasn't the taste, just the crunch that did it !

Washing powder. I used to suck on the clothes when they came out of the machine. blush

Would kill for a menthol cigarette if only to help me have a poo!

Bang goes that idea, then! smile

Trebor's ExtraStrong Mints. Nothing else would suffice. Ugh.

Figgygal Sun 21-Apr-13 15:33:19

Marshmallows 16mo later I still think about them ALL the time hmm

Camdenprincess Sun 21-Apr-13 16:15:21

With dd1 I craved anything and everything and wanted the most sweet things I could find...mars bars, ice poles and skittles.
With this pregnancy I seem to want more savoury things and seem to crave eggs and cheese!!

Rico08 Sun 21-Apr-13 16:15:34

With DS I craved coco-pops and salt & vinegar kettle crisps (had to be kettles!)

I have not really craved anything this pregnancy until last couple of weeks (I'm 36 weeks) and I craved horseradish sauce (I've even had horseradish sauce spread thickly on bread!) and rubber. The smell of certain types of rubber (car mats/hot water bottles) is lovely and makes me want to lick/chew/suck it blush.

I know, I'm weird

IJustWoreMyTrenchcoat Sun 21-Apr-13 16:32:18

Quavers, which I hadn't eaten since junior school when they changed the flavour and they started making me feel sick. I still sometimes cant bear the smell, but I have to have them and they have to be cheeses flavour.

TripTheLightFanjotastic Sun 21-Apr-13 16:39:21

DS1 kfc chicken and white chocolate at the same time. Very specific, had to be the chicken bits and squares of white chocolate in the same mouthful. DS2,no cravings at all, I was a little disappointed smile

Mars bar ice creams have been doing it for me too. And ovaltine, malteasers... Had a phase of craving anchovies, and had pasta with broccoli and anchovies 3 days in a row...

yogafan Sun 21-Apr-13 16:43:08

Coke and ready salted crisps last preg, had to have them every day, usually after a violent bout of morning sickness

Dairylea triangles and milk, actually dairy generally

Sweet things! Midget gems, chocolate, ice cream, crunchy nut cornflakes

Also puddings with fruit in them such as apple crumble etc which I've never liked in my life!

Had a massive craving for a greasy sausage roll yesterday morning and was gutted that the bakery was closed sad

A particular brand of cheap lemonade with #1, cold milk with #2.

An aversion to anything fish related, especially prawns, with both. Also a complete lack of interest in chocolate- very out of character! Different sexes so not anything that can be pinned on that.

Wish there was a vomit emoticon for KFC and white chocolate together! confused

Gingerbreadpixie Sun 21-Apr-13 16:56:11

Dairylea, petite filous and mint magnums :D

Oh and today, marmalade!

Steffanoid Sun 21-Apr-13 16:57:16

Oranges in any form towards the start,the more orange tasting the better, the people in my office didn't like me much, then on to disgustingly greasy fatty burgers from the fast food giants, I made DP drive through the drive thru after we ate cause the craving wasn't satisfied, am currently coming out of a salt and vinegar phase, the co-op Chardonnay vinegar ones are good cause they're so tangy and delicious, this thread is making me hungry!!

bath sponges.

in every pregnancy, and all through puberty
