Hi mumsnetters

Currently 15 weeks pregnant.

And right now all I want is cake & jelly babies, strange cos with my first baby son 5 months ago all I wanted was apples

Just that really, as you were people

So far, this baby seems to be another sugar fiend. I'm mainlining grapes, got about a half a punnet a day habit blush

Roast dinners and McDonalds 😑 Having to rein myself in a bit!!

Pinkheart5915 Mon 22-Feb-16 17:43:32

Last pregnancy all I wanted was apples could eat 8 in a day.

This time I can't get sugar off my mind, my lovely husband has just brought me some cakes home from the local bakery grin

Could be a girl if your craving sweet stuff..old wives tales and such.

My first sugar fiend was a girl. She had a thing for kit kats, shes still got a sweet tooth. It remains to be seen what bits this one has got but it definitely likes the sweet stuff, or maybe that's just what I want to eat when I feel like hell?

Was talking to friends today about craving sugar and a couple of them craved sugar and had girls.

Only 2 weeks and I'm booked in for a scan to find out the sex grin we have a son so a girl would be a nice addition

My cravings were milk and ice cubes. I'd go through a 2kg bag of ice cubes in a day or two! blush in my defence I was due end of August just gone so was heavily pregnant in the heatwaves!! I used to drink 3 pints of milk a day!

With DS 1 it was vanilla - ice cream / custard etc
This time it's anything sharp - oranges / apples / tomatoes and olives - omg so so many olives!
I am eating a lot of sugar though - cakes and chocolate - apparently craving salty food like olives is your body trying to balance out excess sugar oops!

Pinkheart5915 Mon 22-Feb-16 23:28:12

Hoping the novelty of sugar will wear off in a few weeks, or I will be double the size I was in my last pregnancy

With DS my cravings were all savoury.. burgers, sausage rolls, anything carby & covered in salt. Oh and cheese. I felt it was my duty to him to give in & eat whatever 'he' wanted wink

I sometimes have cravings for a few days then they go away again, but throughout my pregnancy I've been obsessed with crisps! It was original hula hoops, then sea salt & balsamic vinegar kettle chips, & now it's wotsits. I feel bad for eating crisps every day, but then eat an apple or something so I feel I've balanced it out!

I have been eating a lot of scampi!!! Usually take it or leave it and drinking tonic water normally can't stand stuff!

SeriousStuff Tue 23-Feb-16 11:20:34

Cheese!!!!!!

Everythinggettingbigger Tue 23-Feb-16 12:19:17

my first pregnancy all I wanted was anything juicy.....a boy! this time it was just carbs carbs carbs at the beginning, now 27 weeks and I am a sugar fiend!! boy again!!!

No 2 pregnancies are the same! Congratulations!

Pinkheart5915 Tue 23-Feb-16 16:29:23

Been at the jelly babies again today, just giving baby what it wants grin

Everythinggettingbigger Tue 23-Feb-16 16:47:45

haha enjoy!! time outs for me today grin

shelbTa Tue 23-Feb-16 16:51:48

Grapes! Crunchy black grapes! I could eat a bunch a day but I've had to have a word with myself due to all the sugar they actually contain.

Also fruit in general really. But gone off chocolate big time, coffee and tea.

Pinkheart5915 Tue 23-Feb-16 16:59:25

I'm thinking if I walk the dog it will balance out all the jelly babies

PickledLilly Tue 23-Feb-16 21:48:52

The thing I'm really off is meat and sandwiches. I had sandwich aversion last time though it did fade with time but the meat thing this time is weird, it doesn't make me queasy or anything. I just really don't fancy it at all. Had steak tonight and after a few mouthfuls I just didn't want to eat it. Sausages, burgers, steak just...nope. I'm normally quite a carnivore!

Everythinggettingbigger Wed 24-Feb-16 08:43:58

Pickled I was the opposite in my first pregnancy, I didn't eat meat until I was pregnant and got a sudden craving for sausages (specifically cut up into pieces and dipped in tomato sauce!) and that was it I couldn't get enough of meat from then on....my DS is now 5 and I have been quite the carnivore too......got to about 16 weeks in this pregnancy (now 27+1) and went totally off meat, just really didn't fancy it at all! strange that isn't it!

Pinkheart5915 Thu 25-Feb-16 14:41:22

Wasn't too bad with the sugar cravings yesterday, but there back today just baked myself a lemon drizzle cake with my son was sleeping grin

Jw35 Thu 25-Feb-16 14:46:58

I'm 17 weeks and want stodgy carbs like jacket potato and cheese, and puddings with custard. Lad pregnancy it was shoe polish and extra strong mints so a step up! grin

Pinkheart5915 Thu 25-Feb-16 14:52:55

i should think at least half the cake will be gone by the time my husband is home, just giving baby what baby wants

PickledLilly Thu 25-Feb-16 18:38:59

I've run out of crunchy green grapes, it's a disaster! sad what am I supposed to eat for my lunch tomorrow?
