So... Has anyone had any cravings? And if you did what were they?

So far mines has been apple, cheese toasties, tea and ice tea. smile

Oh, but my best friend has been craving sponges!! Apparently something to do with her anemia.

weetabix and ginger ber... not together and i really really hate weetabix normally... hate its taste and texture but i like it atm.

SchrodingersMew Thu 23-Jun-11 16:56:07

Ewww ginger beer! People kept suggesting that to me for sickness but it would have made it worse.

lolajane2009 Thu 23-Jun-11 17:19:47

yep pretty revolting imo too but i love it lol.

SchrodingersMew Thu 23-Jun-11 17:21:58

Haha, I love how you can hate things before you are pg and then love it the moment you are. So strange! grin

A big mac.blush

SchrodingersMew Thu 23-Jun-11 18:02:05

I was right into big macs at first, which is strange because I don't really like meat!! Couldn't get enough of them though. So don't blush. grin

40 weeks and nothing at all!

MsChanandlerBong Thu 23-Jun-11 18:05:59

My cravings have eased a bit now (currently 28 weeks) but in the first 12 weeks I couldn't get enough cheese on toast or tomato sandwiches. Oh and I couldn't contemplate starting the day without a bowl of some sort of cereal (normally a toast person!).

Now I mostly eat biscuits... but nothing pregnancy related there!

Pickled Onion crisps.
Orange flavoured chocolate.

I hate crisps & chocolate normally!

babycarmen Thu 23-Jun-11 18:16:06

7up and salt+vinegar crisps...very healthy! With DD it was sponge cake (which i hate) and disinfectant.... (i didnt drink it, dont worry, just couldnt get enough of the smell!!)

SchrodingersMew Thu 23-Jun-11 18:16:44

CityGirl None at all? shock

Awomancalledhorse Orange flavoured chocolate too! And I can't find pickled onion crisps anywhere! sad

Pudding2be Thu 23-Jun-11 18:18:05

CHOCOLATE grin in massive quantities blush

SchrodingersMew Thu 23-Jun-11 18:18:08

Disinfectant!! shock

Awomancalledhorse Thu 23-Jun-11 18:21:03

SchrodingersMew (love the name btw), my local tesco sell Space Raiders 12pk for £1 & those lovely Monster munch I remember from school days!
I think I've had about 3 terrys chocolate oranges in the last month blush

TransatlanticCityGirl Thu 23-Jun-11 18:22:14

SchrodingersMews - really, nothing! I've gone off meat, but I've not craved anything the entire pregnancy. But I'm also a bit of a freak of nature smile

SchrodingersMew Thu 23-Jun-11 18:25:01

Awomancalledhorse Thanks, yours is definitely unique too!!

Asda near me have been selling chocolate oranges for 75p!!
I seen those old school sweets today that look like a stick of dynamite but are liqourice in sherbet!

CityGirl I didn't like meat before, but now can't even stand to look at it! Cheese on the other hand.... Nom! grin

babycarmen Thu 23-Jun-11 18:26:43

I know blush

Ive gone off meat with this pregnancy too.

SchrodingersMew Thu 23-Jun-11 18:33:20

Strange isn't it? It's the time everyone tells you to eat meat as well.

Awomancalledhorse Thu 23-Jun-11 18:49:22

Oooh! I've gone off chicken, can't stand to look at it (even on tv)!

I'll pop into my local Asda & raid their chocolate orange supply.
I've eaten 4 packets of crisps today blush

SchrodingersMew Thu 23-Jun-11 18:50:36

Puke Chicken....

I think they are up to £1 now but that's still great. grin

4 packets isn't bad... Could be worse. grin

Lollyheart Thu 23-Jun-11 19:26:06

Sniffing nail varnish blush

SchrodingersMew Thu 23-Jun-11 19:27:31

Haha, the fumes from that couldn't have been good!! shock

I must say though, I now really like the smell of alcohol wipes...

VeryHungryKatypillar Thu 23-Jun-11 19:41:17

Big Macs here too! They were the only food that didn't make me feel or actually be sick in the first 17 weeks! Glad its not just me!
