Am at 14 weeks and what Ive been able to eat have varied since I got pregnant but mostly my cravings are chocolate wheetos cereal, nectarines (for the taste and the lovely smell) and I dont have it often to try and avoid the caffeine/calories but REALLY enjoy it when I have cold very fizzy coke (has to be the proper brand) its like it tastes so much better since I got pregnant.

I am 15 weeks and still only wanting plain food. No cravings as such. I just want uncomplicated, familiar flavours, nothing posh or fancy.

I do have lots of food aversions though including ALL green veg (I could vom just thinking about a cucumber).

Another little glamorous edition is that I now vomit every time I am flying and plane comes in to land. Particularly nice in front of work colleagues and I am flying around once per fortnight with work.

tomato soup smile

BBQ Bacon Double Cheeseburgers from Burger King with the DSs - the greasier the better. I still like them but not to the extent I did whilst pregnant.

With DD I had anti-cravings; I went off dairy, meat and tea. Still can't stomach tea now, or dairy beyond a certain amount. I think I lived on rice, peppermint tea and lemon sorbet for the whole 9+ months (summer of 2003, very very hot)

I craved chips, sausage sandwiches and fishfingers when going through my ms stage.

Once the sickness had stopped it was Philadelphia with chives and banana milkshake. Also those hoisin duck wraps from Tesco. And my absolute fave thing was tuna sandwiches with mexican chilli flavour Mccoys in the bread. boak.

Mashed potatoes with gravy smile

30wks and I'm currently going through a phase of tomatoes (not normally a huge fan), crispy iceberg lettuce (not normally a huge fan) and apples (DEFFO not a fan normally unless in a pie!)

it's been a while since I have had a craving really, the last one was at about 4months or so for guacamole, went through a tub a day for a week then went off it.

igirisu Wed 05-Jun-13 16:24:04

I feel left out because I am 39 weeks now and have not had any cravings at all!

tequilacream Wed 05-Jun-13 14:48:54

The only constant craving - freshly squeezed orange + lemon juice every morning; Also herring in cream with apples, gherkins and onions - occasionally; almond butter (massive help with nausea); went through a phase of cheesy doritos; gone off chocolate and other sweets; sent DH to get pot noodles - had one and that was me done; powdered milk for a couple of weeks in 1st trimester;

LouiseD29 Wed 05-Jun-13 07:22:02

Cold cold beer (which has been a bit frustrating), Heinz tomato soup and at the moment anything lemony. Doesn't sound too bad except generally that means lemon cake. Mmmm.... Lemon cake....

amanda36567 Wed 05-Jun-13 03:24:11

anything spicy. Jalapeño peppers =)

CouthyMow Wed 05-Jun-13 02:19:19

Just remembered - I also craved pepperami with DD (though not at the same time as the other one).

And with all 3 DS's, I also craved Haribo tangfastics.

CouthyMow Wed 05-Jun-13 02:16:35

Cucumber dipped in Nutella with DD. Used to get some right odd looks with just a cucumber and a jar of Nutella in my shopping basket...

With all 3 DS's, ice. Crunched. Got through a kilo a day.

McDonalds double cheeseburger with fries and their mango and pineapple smoothie Would have to be me that gets a McDonalds for a craving.

insanityscratching Sat 27-Apr-13 07:46:25

Pickled onion space raiders and a milky way used to fend off morning sickness. I've had them since but they don't taste the same now

2Labradors Sat 27-Apr-13 07:42:30

In this pregnancy so far I had a big urge for Branston pickle mmmm, I went to the shop near work and they had some, I smothered my sandwiches in them.

I also fancy peanut flavouring, although I haven't actually bought peanut butter yet (oh the calories), but had some chicken in satay sauce from the Chinese when DH last went.

I've gone off chocolate and I'm a chocoholic. Can still eat choc biccys etc but just not plain choc like dairy milk. We still have Easter eggs in the fridge!

I also really want coffee, I'm usually a tea drinker. DH found some cappuccino sachets de-caff for me and they're amazing!

Taffeta Fri 26-Apr-13 22:32:43

DS - melon and Weetabix (not together ) DS now hates both
DD - nothing. Her fave foods? Melon and Weetabix. confused

Funny redlips, I live on tea, but with DS I couldn't stand it anymore. Made me even sick in the first weeks. So far (6 weeks), I'm still good with tea, fortunately.

So far no real cravings yet, but also with DS, I suddenly wanted MEAT, a lot of it! Have been a very very picky meat eater for most of my life, basically half vegetarian with loads of fish, but I suddenly wanted beef, and lots of it.

Friend, DH and I went for our annual dinner and I suddenly ordered beef. They looked at each other and said/thought pregnant, because in 7 years, they had never seen me order meat in a restaurant!

RedlipsAndSlippers Fri 26-Apr-13 20:44:56

With DD it was crackerbread with thick marge and cheddar, and I was almost in tears when DP couldn't get hold of maple syrup at 11 o'clock at night!
This time it's Smash, can't get enough of it smile
Also I only drink tea when I'm pregnant, can't stand it otherwise.
nanoninja I always think I want KFC when I smell it, then I can't bare to eat it hmm

derpityderp Fri 26-Apr-13 20:27:51

Damp bath sponges but only after they've been washed out a few times in Johnsons bath stuff in the orange bottle. It smells so good it makes me want to eat it. I had my LO last week and the urge to eat sponges is almost gone which is good because I'd eaten 3 in the past month. blush

With my first pregnancy during the first 10 weeks I lived almost exclusively on strawberry Yazoo because it was the only thing I could stomach at the time.
