34 weeks and craving orange juice, though trying to limit it so I don't get heartburn. Anyone else?

Same here. Though not restricted to orange juice. Oranges, juicy apples, pineapple is a particular fave atm!! Anything with lots and lots of JUICE.

Argh now I want more...

I'm earlier on than you but drinking loads of orange juice too, at least a pint a day. dh thinks I must need the vit c as eaten 2 bags of oranges in 3 days too!

I am 26 weeks with DC4 and have craved OJ in all my pregnancies. Yum yum, we need an orange juice smiley to give on the pregnancy threads instead of wine!
I think it is quite a common craving!

It's just so juicy and yummy and orangey. smile

My only other real cravings this time and last time were avocado and chocolate spread.

And skittles in first trimester

I'm only 7+5 and all I can drink is juice (apple or orange)

FranTan Thu 08-Nov-12 08:29:34

Am drinking my first glass of orange juice as I type. Last glass was at 11pm last night. Craving milk, also.

Yes, 36 weeks and crave orange juice, lemon tasting things and Skittles!

LauraPalmerPlusOne Thu 08-Nov-12 09:25:20

Oh, I'm having Skittles cravings, too. The new ones with the dual flavoured centres in the orange packet. Can't get enough and can munch a whole bag in a shockingly short amount of time...

Fluffyfish Thu 08-Nov-12 09:39:24

So pleased skittles not just me! Wonder if it is associated with a particular gender (we don't know what we're having).

Oooh yes orange juice has been a constant craving (is there a song in there?!) for me and am now 26+1.

LauraPalmerPlusOne Thu 08-Nov-12 10:02:38

We're having a boy. Most of my cravings have been savoury, sour and salty. And milk (cartons and cartons and cartons of milk!) But Skittles and large bags of Percy Pigs & Pals seem to be the exception to any pattern.

Mmmmmm. Skittles...want some now!

LauraPalmerPlusOne Thu 08-Nov-12 10:03:18

I'm 27wks, btw.

StateofConfusion Thu 08-Nov-12 10:07:32

I've been mad on orange juice and cloudy apple since about 20wks, 33+4wks now and still love them, happily drink a whole large bottle of copella in one sitting!

My craving is fish, smoked salmon and king prawns in chilli and mayo. Had it last time as well, the need for orange juice is new though.

noblegiraffe Thu 08-Nov-12 21:06:38

Can't get enough of lovely lovely satsumas. There was a thread recently about craving oranges with the theory that if you crave oranges it means you're having a girl (That's what my scan said I'm having!) smile

helebear Thu 08-Nov-12 21:11:08

I'm currently loving 1/4 glass of OJ, 1/4 glass of cranberry topped up with lovely cold water. I could drink gallons of that. I'm 19 weeks.

BridgetandtheHairyBrigands Thu 08-Nov-12 21:15:43

Not pregnant at the moment (though would love to be) but with my DD I drank litres and litres of orange juice. Just couldn't get enough of the stuff. This thread has brought back happy memories, thank you!

SecretSparkle Thu 08-Nov-12 21:18:30

Oh I must have some skittles!!!

jenbird Thu 08-Nov-12 21:25:02

I too have craved OJ all the way through and can totally sympathise on the heartburn thing. I have found that drinking it slightly fizzy helps a little and also LOVE that san pellagrino fizzy orange. I can't have it in the house otherwise I would just drink it by the bucket load.

Anothercerealnamechanger Thu 08-Nov-12 22:04:55

craved satsumas with DD. Bags of them. This time OJ is easier grin

LimeLeafLizard Thu 08-Nov-12 22:12:23

I am craving OJ and having a girl, but then I also craved OJ in my previous three pregnancies and I have 3 DSs!

DyeInTheEar Thu 08-Nov-12 22:20:15

Me too! Am 37 weeks and I never normally drink it and want it all the time. I love my DDs innocent orange drinks though I finish one in 4 seconds.

And weetabix.

I loved real juice orange ice lollies with dd. Ate a box a day, and ice cubes think it was cold stuff. This pregnancy not had any cravings yet.
