I'm 10 weeks pregnant and currently craving cold sausages dipped in HP sauce but I can't have it as I'm gluten intolerent so HP sauce is off the menu. Bugger.

I've also been craving fresh, crusty bread with butter but ditto gluten and the gluten free bread just doesn't do it it's so dry! (Blub)

I've gone off cheese and bacon which I normally love, and tea and coffee smells make me heave.

Anyone else want to share their cravings whilst I'm thinking of everything I can't eat?

Cravings: chocolate milkshake, cheese, thin French fries, watermelon, grapes, croissants filled with chocolate/almond, buttery crumpets/muffins (I may have to go and buy some of those now)

Aversions: most other things! Especially curries, broccoli, spinach (bleurgh) usually love these foods!

Oh and a strong aversion to fish! Not good with all this iodine stuff and need the protein as I don't eat meat!

I went completely off salad and lettuce in the early stages of my last pregnancy. And tea, couldn't stand it. I did crave sweet things and cakes (with fresh cream) - hence the name grin

Around 32 weeks I couldn't get enough milk, I would drink 4 pints shock of the stuff in a day. Thankfully didn't last too long.

Just found out I'm expecting again now so will be interesting to see if its a similar pattern... so far I'm just very hungry and very tired.

Alex I think its only like a 3 point IQ increase in intelligence anyway so I wouldn't worry too much!

I've gone off greenery too and normally I love broccoli/spinach/cabbage.

I'm in my third trimester and up until now the only major craving has been for sweet stuff when I'm normally more of a savoury kind of girl. However over the past couple of weeks I've developed a major aversion to dairy (to the point of being sick if I have any) this is devastating for me as cheese is literally my life confused

Cravings: macaroni cheese, milk, trifle, diet coke and Irn bru.

Aversions: fruit/veg, cereal and soya (usually a favourite).

First few weeks could hardly eat a thing hmm

Aversions: tea, cake, caramel in chocolates. However, started to enjoy these again later into my pregnancy.

Cravings: none! Just wanted to eat more of everything lol x

I've got an aversion to salad (oops, not helping my slimming world!) and almost all meat, particularly chicken. No cravings yet (8 weeks).

I hate, hate, hate carrots right now. Just... Ew. My one proper craving is the smell of grapefruit smile

2labradors there's this lightly smoked applewood cheddar in waitrose at the cheese counter and it is YUM! Now have to keep going back to waitrose so my shopping budget has gone up hmm
