With ds1 I wanted turkey and maramlade sandwiches. With ds2 I wanted apple juice and snack sized mars bars. Went off all junk food and carved roast potatoes and gravy.

Anyone else?

sex (I thought that was great but I don't think DP found me so desirable in my whale like state ), mashed potato with salt and banana milkshakes

Raw broccoli (used to eat it at the bus stop on my way home from work!). Also loved the smell of petrol and some plastics. Strange, I know...

With DS1 it was Barrs red Kola. The Co-Op at Lossiemouth started stocking big 2 litre bottles especially for me

with DS2 it was cheese.

With dd it was grapefruit, used to eat 3 a day like oranges, and cheesey wotsits, the smell of them now makes me heave, they smell like vomit. With ds it was breadsticks dipped in english mustard and hot & spicey pickled onions.

Iced water

strawberries and cherries - thank god it was summer!

Oh and weetabix as soon as I woke up but that was only in the early stages. I would eat 3 at a time!

Cherries and lychees.
Baked potatoes were all I could eat for the first few months with all four of mine till the MS passed.

ItsNotOnlyTheGoodBits Tue 22-May-07 16:34:11

I craved chips, and like MegaLegs that passed until the morning sickness passed. Maybe baked potatoes would have been healthier, but I didn't think of that. Well actually chips were ALL I could keep down.

After month 4 I could eat anything...and I did!

DD1 - potatoes of any variety - couldnt get enough, went off bacon and gammon in a BIG way

DD2 - cant really remember craving anything particular, but couldnt eat coleslaw at all

This time - currently craving doner kebabs (havent given in yet) and am off most hot dinners regardless

Couldn't get enough of greek salad. Thought it was a pretty odd craving and then went to dinner at a mate's, also pregnant; she plonked a huge bowl of it on the table and said, "Hope you don't mind Greek salad; I've just been eating it constantly since I've been pregnant."

With DS1 it was beef.

This time round 20 weeks already and still no appetite, although I started to drink milk which I normally don't like.

suzycreamcheese Tue 22-May-07 17:01:19

...used to sneak smells of shoe dubbing and polish...just a quick sniff before we go..
extra strong mints the barrel full...

just reminded me its dinner time!

marmitemad Tue 22-May-07 17:04:25

marmite the whole way through (I used to eat a small pot every morning with a teaspoon!!

and tomatoes but not as much as marmite

Rantmum Tue 22-May-07 17:04:49

In first trimester - white bread and cheese - only thing that made the nausea stop (for a moment or two).

Second trimester - frosted icing. HOW unhealthy is that?

Third trimester - spag bol and clementines, dh got a wee bit sick of our monotonous diet .

I craved m stretch mark cream which smelt like turkish delight.
POickled onion monster munch and chocolate orange in the same mouthfull

Wimpy quarter pounders with lots of orange sauce.

I hated ham and beer and i had to move the coffee jar into another cupboard and the sugar in the other. I would heave if i drove or smelt coffee or beer.

dd1 was rice krispies straight from the box ( i was getting through 4 of the big boxes a day)

dd2 was milky ways, luckily they were on special offer at the time. dh worked out that I actually spent around £600 on them when pg with dd2

talcyoyo Tue 22-May-07 18:53:32

Marmite for first 3 months

yorkshire pudding and mint sauce

fruit pie and icecream in large quantities

would only drink through a straw

runnyhabbit Tue 22-May-07 18:56:33

ds1 - Weetabix. Would be nothing for me to have 8 in one go. Can't stand the sight of them now

ds2 - apple juice and the sandwich lady at work did lovely prawn baguettes (she always kept them for me!)

unknownrebelbang Tue 22-May-07 18:56:54

Bread pudding.

bristols Tue 22-May-07 18:58:58

Greek yogurt with honey.

And cadbury's fruit and nut. But I think that I used the term 'craving' as an excuse to eat as much as I wanted.
