Cravings and foods you've gone off since pregnancy

So...I was curious if anyone else has had to stop eating/drinking something since being pregnant.

I have gone off coffee - normally drink 5-7 cups a day. Now only one or two a week!

First trimester saw mean avoiding bacon like the plague. DH is cooking for the guests (we run a b&b) and I'm dying for a bacon sarnie. Hopefully I can eat it now he's made it specially for me!

Cravings:

Fresh orange juice - not from concentrate!
Walkers prawn cocktail crisps
And the newest addition is mint choc chip ice creams like cornetto or feast.

Anyone else?

I have completely gone off chocolate and anything sweet. Before pg I was a complete addict, hoping it carries on after baby arrives so I can lose weight lol

Also gone off steak, bacon and mince.

No real cravings other than a two week period at 6 weeks where I craved McDonald's chocolate milkshake. I am dairy allergic so that one was bizarre!

Totally went off tea, after drinking at least 7 cups a day. I'm 18+3 now and only just starting to have a cup of tea 1-2 times a day.
Went off salad and veg too.
Craved apples, orange juice, gherkins, cheddar cheese and wanted lots of salt on everything.The worst craving was Big Macs. Luckily this has passed now!

First pregnancy completely went off bananas - like even the smell of one made me retch. Craved plain, bland carbs (cous cous, rice, bread) when nauseous in 1st trimester. Completely went off meat. Craved fruit juice for the rest of pregnancy.

2nd time - no banana aversion, but certain smells made me feel sick, such as antibacterial washing up liquid (still can't use a particular brand). Same bland food cravings & anti meat during first trimester. No other cravings.

this time - no cravings or aversions at all (thus far), although can eat anything in the day but feel full very quickly in the evening & want to eat much less than usual, perhaps just because so exhausted!

Never gone off coffee or chocolate!

Last time I had a really huge aversion to tuna fish. I'd retch if I even glimpsed a tin in a cupboard. Went off cheese for a while too. Craved anything sweet but mostly cream cakes and cadburies creme eggs. (Which I can't stand usually).

This time I've had no aversions at all. Cravings of milk, pure orange juice and steak.
