Mine. If I could indulge in anything i liked right away:
Marboro lights.

They have all been sorely missed!

Bunnychan Fri 22-Feb-13 19:56:29

Pâté on toast! Followed by runny dippy egg! The two things I've really missed :-( x

Pascha Fri 22-Feb-13 19:58:04

Mine was rare steak. I ate pate on toast all the way through.

The day after I stopped breastfeeding DD (6 weeks in due to tongue-tie) I devoured a load of goats cheese. Heaven!

Shaiandbump Fri 22-Feb-13 21:08:34

Cannot wait for a nice cold glass of rose

LoganMummy Fri 22-Feb-13 21:12:31

Goats cheese
Baked Alaska

Newmum2013 Fri 22-Feb-13 21:36:32

Turning over in bed in less than 30 seconds!!

FergusSingsTheBlues Fri 22-Feb-13 21:43:36

Oh, goats cheese... V good point..Mahna!
...also a good body to body cuddle with my husband, wow. Six days to go....

butterflyexperience Fri 22-Feb-13 21:59:58

Goats cheese
Red wine

KatieMiddleton Fri 22-Feb-13 22:03:54

NHS say sushi's fine in pregnancy. As is pasteurised goats soft cheese (rindless). Isn't goats cheese fine when breastfeeding? I've eaten loads this week.

My rider for dd was chilled champagne, pate and Brie with good French bread. It was fabulous.

riskit4abiskit Fri 22-Feb-13 22:05:08

Well I might be a real saddo....

Only 11wks so far and am already planning to take a cool box to hospital with a picnic of m and s goodies in it, especially the raspberry jelly with raspberries in it......mmmmmm

Bue Fri 22-Feb-13 23:23:59

Why can't you eat raspberry jelly now? What am I missing?

And why wouldn't you eat goat's cheese while BF? confused

FergusSingsTheBlues Sat 23-Feb-13 04:59:17

katie i ate stacks of sushi in first trimester, in fact it really helped with morning sickness,think it was combi of glutinous rice and all that ginger...then my relationship with fish utterly hit the skids. Been a total carnivore ever since!

CareerGirl01 Sat 23-Feb-13 08:14:57

fergus like your post (try and ditch the MLs though! Am trying to get DH to give up too)
Champagne - we have a bottle of VC left over from our wedding- saving it!
Goats cheese - with rind!!!
Chocolate - Godiva or Hotel Chocolat - as I've found all sweet things unbearable this pg (
Stilton - don't really like but don't like fact I can't eat it!
A steam and or sauna and a spin class. Then some ashtanga yoga - sad I know but have been banned from these too.
Skinny jeans - wishful thinking

walnut300 Sat 23-Feb-13 09:59:36

careergirl you can eat stilton!!! grin


PuffPants Sat 23-Feb-13 10:06:11

I used to wonder if the tea and toast after birth was a myth but, sure enough, within minutes of being wheeled back to the delivery room (after brief visit to theatre) I was given two pieces of buttery toast and DH had the tea. It was amazing. Somehow just exactly what I needed after a 36 hr labour during which I had eaten...precisely...nothing.

KatieMiddleton Sat 23-Feb-13 13:22:15

I ate quite a bit of sushi with dc2 as well grin

Went almost veggie first time round so pâté didn't appeal but this time round I craved meat. In fact I ate my first steak. Cooked it myself and everything. I would have heaved at just the thought first time round. Once she was born I ate a lot of pâte!

FoofFighter Sat 23-Feb-13 13:49:09

Just the tea and toast provided by the MW!

HazleNutt Sat 23-Feb-13 13:51:27

You can eat sushi when pregnant. And stilton. And runny (lion-stamped) eggs and baked alaska - those chickens must be vaccinated against salmonella. You can go to sauna if you're used to it and don't have blood pressure problems - all women in Finland do and they have actually extremely low rate of the issues saunas are supposed to cause. Unless you have any particular health issues, it's fine to continue with most exercise.

Only thing I'm really missing is comfortably sleeping on my stomach.

redandyellowandpinkandgreen Sat 23-Feb-13 14:48:40

Pate on a big chunk of french bread and some brie.

redandyellowandpinkandgreen Sat 23-Feb-13 14:49:24

And a huge bag of pick and mix (concerned about eating too much sweet stuff because of gestational diabetes).

KFFOREVER Sat 23-Feb-13 14:53:49

Chocolate chocolate and more chocolate. I havent been able to have sweet things whilst being pregnant it tastes vile.

A very thick layer of yummy goats cheese (with rind) on a French crusty stick with a very large guilt free glass of cold Sauvignon blanc or champers.

PuffPants Sat 23-Feb-13 15:12:47

Ice-cold sauvignon blanc.....hmm...I haven't felt like drinking for months but suddenly I have a terrible thirst.

Thanks for that!

StrawberriesTasteLikeLipsDo Sat 23-Feb-13 15:13:01

DS2 is 9 weeks. Post birth toast tasted fab but had been nil by mouth so... Had stocked up on patè parma ham soft cheeses etc, which I did plan to take to hospital but glad i didnt as I really didnt fancy it. First night home was 22nd dec (ds born on21st) and we had steak - mine nearly had a pulse!! Being christmas i then indulged in all of the above and booooze for the next ten days!! Lovely grin

delilahbelle Sat 23-Feb-13 15:18:00

Don't eat runny eggs! cherry on the October antenatal thread ended up in hospital with bacterial colitus from eating a runny but in date lion stamped egg.

Sorry Puff!

MrsTotes Sat 23-Feb-13 15:33:04

A large glass of red wine
The stinkiest unpasturised blue cheese
Seared rare tuna steak
Another large glass of red wine

CareerGirl01 Sat 23-Feb-13 15:46:10

Am with kf - nothing sweet tastes good. walnut had read cheese with blue rind = bad? Mind you when pg with DD1 was told not to eat peanut butter - was one if the few things I kept down in the early stages of this pregnancy.

HaveIThoughtThisThrough Sun 03-Mar-13 21:43:39

Tattinger - lots.

Starter of scallops (I don't like them overcooked so I'm waiting til I can have them cooked to my liking)

Main course - filet steak only cooked blue (let it look at the pan, but no more) with red wine and probably more champagne (notice the theme!)

Eggs benedict with runny poached eggs for breakfast (with more champagne).

Funnily enough, despite adoring it, I have no desire to drink fizz at all right now and I suspect I'll have zero tolerance for it once I can have some again. Oh well, I'll be a cheap date!

Nagoo Sun 03-Mar-13 21:49:59

Touche eclat.


ChairmanWow Sun 03-Mar-13 22:30:39

Every single unpasteurised, rinded or mould- ripened cheese known to humanity. I don't care if my house smells of sick - pile 'em up
Runny eggs
Marlboro lights (I haven't smoked in 5 years but have craved them this whole pregnancy)
Sex - due to some bleeds I've been on a sex ban for the last 3 months. Not sure about right away, mind. shock

Discolite Mon 04-Mar-13 15:08:32

A gin martini with an olive and runny poached eggs, with a side order of Camembert!

scaredbutexcited Mon 04-Mar-13 15:35:27

Sushi, rare steak and chocolate mouse. Think I miss sushi the most. Just 6 weeks to go. Mmmm sushi.. ..

AladdinOnRepeat Mon 04-Mar-13 15:40:26

I just carried on eating as normal when I was pregnant, I ate loads of rare-medium steak. Normally I like it well done but craved juicy steak for some reason. I went off chocolate but have made up for it now. He's 4 weeks old and I think I have managed to eat two proper dinners in that time, I live on mini eggs and chocolate with sugary tea and am still losing weight - no idea how!

MrsMillions Mon 04-Mar-13 18:37:01

HaveI.. Yes you've thought that through very well wink. I'd swap your blue fillet for a medium ribeye but live your list.

I've had about 3 glasses of champagne since reaching 12 weeks (now 21+4) and have really enjoyed them, but would have loved a second or third glass on each occasion.

MrsMillions Mon 04-Mar-13 18:37:27

Love your list, even. Silly phone.

Frantastic84 Mon 04-Mar-13 21:11:17

A nice big toblerone ive been saving since Christmas (gestational diabetes sad)
Hot buttered toast
A large cappuccino! I've been off hot drinks all throughout!
Turning over with ease in bed!

StiffyByng Mon 04-Mar-13 21:19:02

A large chip butty on crusty white bread. Am also on the low-GI thing for blood sugars. I don't miss chocolate much but would love a carb blow-out! Last time it was pate and runny cheese.

LittleMilla Mon 04-Mar-13 21:26:42

Just feel like getting a bit pissed on a few big g&ts! Miss that slightly warm fuzzy feeling. Not drunk tho.

Food wise there isn't anything I'm that fussed about tbh. I can still eat all crisps which is all I ever care about. Chav that I am!

MedicalEd Mon 04-Mar-13 21:48:22

G&T, oysters, lying on my front to have a really good massage.
Would love someone to come in and make me look presentable without me having to lift a finger too.
A cook, daily cleaner, (am giving off a lazy vibe aren't I?)

plantsitter Mon 04-Mar-13 22:04:47

<pops in to wince at words 'post-birth' and 'rider' in same sentence and pops out again>

Brie on french bread. Koppaberg #classy

So far they're the only things I really miss, but give me chance, I'm only 5+1...

BinarySolo Tue 05-Mar-13 07:20:22

A nice cup of tea and some toast. Seem to remember the toast really hitting the spot last time but had black coffee because I was vegan and it just didn't do it! Veggie sushi would be nice too. And a shower or bath. Waited about 4 hours for ds to have a cannula fitted whilst in a grotty post birth state, leaking through the sanitary towel and generally felt grim. I didn't even get a wheelchair like the other mums I'd seen.

<feels short changed>

Notmyidea Tue 05-Mar-13 08:13:27

last time I sent dh out to get me a snickers, but that was back in the day of being warned off nuts.
Think I'll go for white wine and stinky cheeses this time, with a nice selection of high-fibre nibbles. Ah the difference between having a baby in your twenties and your thirties!

Yannah2006 Tue 05-Mar-13 08:43:32

Good cider
Salt and vinegar squares (these were an absolute godsend after i had DS1)
