I wanted to eat a firelighter the other evening. I have a really strong craving for chemical smells. I took stuff to be dry cleaned just to smell that wonderful dry cleaning shop smell. The clothes didn't need cleaning.

In the 3rd trimester now but these were mine in the 1st:

1. Chocolate
2. Cream / milk
3. Hot drinks
4. Anything sweet which wasn't also sour.

But I went through a period of 3 weeks or so where everything tasted bad, like when you have a bad cold and everything tastes funny... but worse. The only things which didn't taste bad were the following (although I refused to only eat these, so I ended up force-feeding myself quite a lot):

1. Toast/crumpets/muffins with Marmite
2. Chips with lots of vinegar
3. Chicken/miso noodle soup (with lots of soy sauce)
4. Ice cold Orangina or Lemonade

InsufficientlyCaffeinated Mon 14-Dec-15 10:54:29


1) Coffee (and I REALLY love coffee as my name suggests, it's even my job)
2) Chocolate and most sweet food
3) Just the thought of most food apart from the below

1) Grapes. Eaten 3 big tubs over the weekend, bought 2 more last night
2) Dirty builder style tea. Don't normally drink tea nor have milk in drinks
3) Cooked breakfast yet at the same time the idea of eating one repulses me (been a veggie for years)
4) Lovely runny eggs (don't normally eat eggs at all, couldn't stand the taste before being pg)
