Just that really - I'm in my 18th week and haven't gone off any food or had any particular cravings at all. I was kind of looking forward to seeing what I would crave during pregnancy and my food habits haven't changed whatsoever! I'm not even hungrier than I was before. Not complaining really, would be interesting to know why some women have cravings/aversions to food and some don't!!

Me neither! And disappointed just like you!
I did go off food though and lots of morning sickness up to 22 weeks with all the pregnancies.

I like to think that I didnt have cravings because I was eating all I should, but suspect that that is a load of rubbish!

I never had cravings with either of my pregnancies. I think cravings are a sign you're deficient in some trace minerals, so look on the bright side, you're obviously eating a great and healthy diet!

I had craving for pickled onion crisps in first tri. But after a couple of weeks it went and haven't had mad cravings, my hubby half expected to be going to 24 hr shops at 3 in the morning whilst I was preg to fix my cravings. But he hasn't had to lol.

He's got off scot free :p

MairzyDoats is right I read that cravings are what your lacking in vitamins etc so I guess it's a good thing when we don't crave smile

I agree with mairzydoats as well, with my first two pregnancies I craved lots of different things at different stages. With this pregnancy I have craved nothing and it's the first pregnancy were I have taken multi vitamins throughout.

I didn't through three pregnancies - DH wouldn't accept that mars bars were a legitimate craving! grin

Not had any cravings at all and no morning sickness either (now 14+2) so feel very lucky! I did completely go of Indian food from day 1 which has upset my OH no end as he loves it but rather fancy a Byriani for dinner so that will make him happy smile

I was starving during 1st tri though... not so much now but still eating more oops! Bump seems to like a chocolate bar about 3pm with a cup of tea... what can I to do? lol

In almost 2 full pregnancies, I've never had any specific cravings. Just for food in general, I get extra hungry when pregnant.

This time round, very early on, the smell of bacon made me feel sick. It was (thankfully) short lived though.

I ate a lot of fruit early on, but it was more out of laziness as I CBA to cook anything than actual cravings.

Only cravings I have had is for a chinese - think that had something to do with spending 2 hours sat in the hair dressers opposite 3 chinese takeaways!

Only food I have gone off was food I was immediately sick after eating with morning sickness!

I was just hungrier when I was pregnant especially in the first trimester!
Had morning nausea but no actual sickness.

me too sandwich! totally gone of indian food. Have tried a few times but it's just too rich I think. My poor DP has to have it all to himself (ha ha!)

I never had cravings, I just had aversions. I went off garlic and also chicken. I made myself and DH a nice chicken dish for dinner then couldn't eat it and cried because I felt sorry for it!! I miss being pregnant and the crazy crying spells!
