My friend was a vegetarian for 5 years, and fancied a macccy d's hamburger, so she had one. She never went back to being a vegetarian after that. They are good mmmmmmm
So no yanbu

its normal to fancy odd things maybe its just what your body needs atm mine was gherkins and twice during my first pregnancy i desperately HAD to have a packet of starburst at 4am and DH being the proud daddy to be was dumb kind enough to pop to the garage to get them grin

Well my body might THINK it needs cheeseburger but it bloody well isn't getting one! I cannot bring myself to do it.......well......not yet........

Go on...you know you want to. Get a portion of cheese melts while you are on. And a nice cold full fat coke, and maybe an apple pie grin

What you need to do is get someone who is a meat eater to turn vegetarian so you can have the cheeseburger. Once you have had the baby they can revert back to a meat eater and you a veggie.

god if you're breaking your vegetarian lifestyle you need something decent - a T-bone steak or a bacon sarnie - but a McD's cheeseburger? at least crave a Burger King grin

i'm so suggestible, now i want one too!

had hyperemesis until 14 weeks, then spent the rest of my first pregnancy stuffing down chicken nuggets with bbq sauce. never eaten them before in my life.

YANBU.

I just had one an hour ago (my first in about 5 years!) and it was great. I am also pregnant (but not veggie).

You're craving fat and salt (obviously- I always do when pg) so any combo should work - have you got any walkers salt and vinegar or get some chip shop chips...

Well I had a can of garden veg soup, some broccoli and plenty of salt and pepper.....not quite the same thing but at least I feel full now so less thinking of cheeseburgers is occurring!

I'm veggy and fancy meat when I'm low on protien, you need more during pregnancy. Make sure you are loading up with quorn etc. Maybe make a really greasy fully loaded veggy burger and some good fries to go with it

I never had any cravings except for chocolate brownies, giant choc buttons and crisps. They haven't stopped.

YABVVVVVU to mess-arse about with cheeseburgers when the wonderous, amazing Big Tastys are back on the menu.

I actually cried when pregnant because I didn't want one [confused}

I had the exact same craving and we don't have any fast food places where I live so I had to try to get over it but I craved a McD double cheese burger for days. Even through the morning sickness I kept thinking about it!

HeadfirstForHalos Wed 06-Jul-11 21:01:27

I had cravings for meat with every pregnancy, I've been veggie since the age of 11! Every time It was because my iron count was getting low so I took supplements and ate more veggie iron rich foods and the cravings went.

I suppose whether you cave to the crave depends on your reasons for being veggie smile
