This is lighthearted as I know it's not a major problem but having strong pregnancy cravings in lockdown is hard!! All I want is some baby bell cheeses and some milky bar chocolate but because it's not an essential trip I can't go 😫😂 is anyone else battling cravings?

Me!! I want Bombay mix so badly. In normal times I’d sent Dh to the shop. But now I’ll have to lump it!

I want Easter eggs 😀

I feel you pain. Sour cherry travel sweets sad

@Connie222 I would usually do the same! It's very hard but I'm waiting until he goes to do our essential shopping trip and I will get him to get me some then if I'm still craving them then 😃

Yes! Not so much cravings as aversions to everything we have except the odd thing which I quite fancy but isn't essential so is unavailable!

@SophiaConfetti oh no! That must be so hard, I remember when I was like that and could only stomach certain things sad how many weeks are you all? I'm 30 weeks smile

All I keep thinking about is that McDonald's advert from years ago when the bloke went to McDonald's and bought a box of gherkins for his pregnant partner. Now, I don't want gherkins but I could kill for their chicken nuggets.

Only 7 and a bit! Honestly, I can't think of one thing in the house I want. I'm having to force down every meal. I can think of a few things I do fancy but it changes day to day and obviously none are essential to pop out for

@chocolate26 in 19 weeks.

I also keep thinking about McDonalds breakfasts. I had a dream that I was eating a pile of their hash browns the other night.

Connie222 Thu 09-Apr-20 17:22:34

@SophiaConfetti that’s the awful thing about early pregnancy! What I fancied eating/what I could eat without wanting to puke changed on a hourly basis.

@SophiaConfetti oh yeah you are right in that first trimester part! When I was around 7 weeks I lived on pasta with tuna, kidney beans and maybe some broccoli smile the sickness was horrendous. Are there any restaurants doing delivery where you live? I know some are where I live! If so maybe there would be something you fancy from there.

@Connie222 I'm not a massive McDonalds fan but I could really do with a McFlurry from there now! It must be hard for you who are cravings McDonald's as it's not even open at the moment!

Right now dreaming of KFC and GBK... maybe also a supermarket pizza with lots of ketchup! And Stilton on a homemade burger

We are lucky to have enough food but it's all really healthy stuff... fish, vegetables, brown rice and quinoa, that kind of thing 🤢 🤢

FuzzyGoose Thu 09-Apr-20 17:36:03

Omg yes I'm 7 and a half weeks and the only thing I want is pork pies. Everything else is making me want to vommmmmm 🤢

I'm 38 weeks, I would love a bag (or 4) of cheese doritos and some strawberry milkshake!!

chocolate26 Thu 09-Apr-20 17:43:30

@Fedupofitnow123 cheesy Doritos!! Now I want them aswell grin I've been craving strawberry milkshake for a long time too. Hopefully everyone is due an essential food shop soon so you can get the things you crave!

I’m 33 weeks and mines polos! Has to be original flavour and have gone through so many packets the last few weeks! Luckily I’ve been able to get some home deliveries so have been able to buy some multipacks but I get proper anxious when I’m down to the last pack 🤣

Didn’t think of this! Remembering fondly the days pre-DC of going to the 24hr Asda in the middle of the night for Lemon sorbet as I had a lemon addiction

Lemonysherbet Thu 09-Apr-20 18:04:17

I REALLY want to go swimming 😂

chocolate26 Thu 09-Apr-20 18:08:26

@Lemonysherbet 😂 swimming would be nice right now! I went for a walk yesterday and the clear waterfall I walked past looked appealing to swim in.

Cake of the birthday variety and some cheesy wotsits would be delicious right now

Lemonysherbet Thu 09-Apr-20 18:24:11

@chocolate26 I just really have the craving to smell like chlorine. Pregnancy is weird!
