I'm normally a healthy eater but since I have been pregnant I have been eating pretty much junk food - trying to eat as healthy as possible but craving Chip and curry muffins , KFC, Chocolate and Cheese ...I feel sick all the time so can only really eat what I feel like.

Is anyone else experiencing anything similar??

Feel really bad cos want to do the best for the baby

i also craved junk when i was pregnant - sugar puffs, white bread and nutella and chips - carbs are good!
eat it if you fancy it and balance it out with the good stuff the rest of the time

How pregnant are you? I ate utter crap for the first 11 weeks because I felt so sick and only eating rubbish seemed to help . Sickness has settled down now (am 13 weeks) and I have started to cook and eat 'proper' food and meals etc now.

Weeks 5-11: cheese and marmite toasties (I hate marmite!). Regular craving: portion of chocolatr washed down with a tomato or tomato juice. Went completely off greens. Currently on NHS diet (week 31), so no greens anyway, and junk food galore (corned beef hash with baked beans, .

I really fancied cheese on toast last night so indulged....stayed down for all of an hour! Today feeling crap again managing to eat a couple of digestive bisuits and drink small amounts of cordial Have my first scan tomorrow so fingers crossed dates I have are right (if they are I'm currently 12+3)and I will be coming through the sickness stage soon!

I can not even entertain greens, cabbage, lettuce, broccoli etc [sick]!

I had KFC for the first time in nearly a year at the weekend and ever since I just want more!!!! Got a real thing for salty chips at the moment as well, and when I say salty, I mean about 5 sachets of salt on a regular fries! Mmmm lovely!

Other than that, my staple food has been crisps - salt and vinegar, cheese and onion and monster munch

Lol I bought KFC for the first time last week - had to be Zinger meal - I hate spicy food and can't normally eat it!

With you on the crisp too! Limiting myself to 1 or 2 packs a day! supplemented by double deckers!
