I had no cravings shock

I was getting excited in early pregnancy thinking i would make good use of having cravings lol wink but they just didn't come!

I did go off a few things for a while - tea especially! I used to drink about three cups a day and then just stopped. I only started drinking it after baby was about 4 months old.

I'm 34 weeks and have had no cravings other than food in general. Just can't stop eating blush

Tinned green beans .... Yuk

Are you specifically asking for cravings in teen mothers?

Or for women of any age who knew they were having a girl?

I'd be in the second category with my 4th PG, and it was all for sweet things.

Salt and vinegar and fizzy/sour sweets for my boy and my girl.

And the same as potato some days it was like I didn't have an off switch.

Roast potatoes cooked in any type of animal fat...yuk

With DS it was apples I could eat 6-8 a day

I'm pregnant with a DD this time, and it's ice cream with olives

ShowOfHands Sun 26-Jun-16 13:05:25

Same cravings with both.

Cravings are nothing to do with the sex of the baby. They're more influenced by your health during pregnancy if anything. Often there's no pattern at all.

I had no cravings with ds1.
ds2 it was ice cold whole milk I was drinking about 8 pints a day.
Dd it was anything orange. Carrots, wotsits, oranges, orange jelly and tango

Just found out I'm pregnant with #2. With #1 there were none which I was quite disappointed about! I wanted to crave something weird and wonderful. I ate a bit more melon now I look back but not sure I craved it.

Annabrooke90 Sun 26-Jun-16 13:59:11

Ice....all five of my pregnancies

bumbleclat Sun 26-Jun-16 14:16:59

Radishes confused

Didn't think I had any cravings really but I could happily eat bacon for every meal. And soft boiled eggs. So basically a fry up! I'm limiting myself to 1 packet of bacon a week! And I only eat eggs if I've cooked them!

BeauticianNotMagician81 Sun 26-Jun-16 15:12:40

Ds1 sausage rolls
Ds2 ice & pork pie
Ds3 salt & vinegar crisps
Pregnant with ds4 and craving all things citrus even all my toiletries have had to be changed to citrus/fruity smelling products

Quietlygoingmad67 Sun 26-Jun-16 15:15:11

Dd1 - quavers and chocolate milk
Dd2 - strong black coffee or crushed ice

KayTee87 Sun 26-Jun-16 15:53:33

Ice cream and milkshakes smile

Virgin Mary's, mini magnums, polenta chips and the strongest craving ever for chippy chips and cheese at 2.30pm (the chip shop didn't open until 4pm. I called ahead to order at 3.55 as was so DESPERATE and my workmates still laugh at me). They were the most delicious chips I've ever tasted.
No food will ever taste as good as
Satiating a pregnancy craving!

Ice! My last 5 pregnancies I was addicted. I'd lay in bed eating it. The crunch was divine! My last one was Ice and polo's. I never knew polo's gave a laxative effect till my sister told me, I'd told her I had terrible diarrhea for weeks 😂

daydream86 Sun 26-Jun-16 18:17:53

having a girl here. nothing really specifically, have developed an incredibly sweet tooth for choc and sweets which I could take or leave before pg. I went completely off chicken for a while but now just about back on it again. Eat a LOT of cheese flavoured stuff, mini cheddars, quavers, cheddar cheese etc x

mummydoc123 Sun 26-Jun-16 19:14:06

Irn-Bru...but only allowed one can per day as high in caffeine. But it is the highlight of my day. Oh, and anything citrusy (grapefruit, oranges).

needanewjob Sun 26-Jun-16 19:51:20

Another one for salt and vinegar crisps (heaven) and fizzy sweets. Oh and also San Pellegrino Limonata, a really sour fizzy lemonade which absolutely hits the spot at the moment!
