Hey Jarm....

I am craving fruit. I have at least two fruit salads a day and then sometimes have a massive plate of melon or something FOR DINNER. very healthy, but have also been craving coke and sprite... mainly as they ease my nausea for about 10 minutes. also have an unhgealthy addiction to chip buttys at the minute for the nihgts that i do eat dinner,

Went to sainsburys to get some and had sold out! noooo, so made DP drive me over to Tescos as it had to be fruit pastel lollies and nothing else!

JARM Mon 13-Aug-07 12:15:29

see, im into ben and jerrys and rice crispies.... thats it!

everything else i eat because i have to - but they are the things i WANT!!

RGPargy Mon 13-Aug-07 12:18:31

I dont think i've truly had a craving of something that you just HAVE to have. Yeah sure, i've fancied stuff, but not really craved it.

Am i odd and weird and a total freak??

JARM Mon 13-Aug-07 12:19:10

RGP - not at all, hardly craved anything at all with DD2, DD1 was roast potatoes!

RGPargy Mon 13-Aug-07 12:27:20

I didn't have any cravings with DS either.

I think Mother Nature has failed me in my one excuse to be able to eat what i liked and then force my DP to get it for me at 3am. WHY????!!!!!! *sobs uncontrollably*

mixedmama Mon 13-Aug-07 13:18:34

I tried unsuccessfully in my previous pregnancy and this one to get DH to get me things at 10 pm never mind 3 am .... alas no joy.

sarahloumadam Mon 13-Aug-07 14:03:58

LOL mixedmama have very sceptical husband too! I don't have any specific cravings but loving stodgy food - bread and butter, treacle sponge and custard, cookie dough ice-cream...

hayley2u Mon 13-Aug-07 15:12:22

i'm hooked on ice slushes and also cant get enough of sugar puffs cereal with warm milk mmm

kiansmum Mon 13-Aug-07 15:23:18

hayley2u, Thats really weird as i'm too hooked on Cherry slush puppies and ice cubes!!!
The ladies that work in our local shop laugh when i go in as they know what i've gone in for before i even ask!

wotsits Mon 13-Aug-07 15:27:07

chip shop chips
Thai tom yum soup

This LO has driven me to give in to meat
DH is exstatic that we have sausages in the house though LOL and have discovered that DD is a fan of them too so, I guess it's a good thing

Last time it was Twix bars and salt and vinegar rice cakes!
And DH did go out at 10pm on one occasion for Tiramisu, whcih he wont ever let go, and HE was the one who INSISTED on going out for it too, I just said I felt like having some :P Men eh?! LOL

PurpleLostPrincess Mon 13-Aug-07 22:47:10

I reeeeeeaaaaaaallllyyy want/need a cider lolly from the freezer in the shed (at the end of the garden) but DH won't go out there to get me one - humph!!!

Guess I'll have to brave the dark garden on my own and get it!

He doesn't drive and thinks it's hilarious that I can't make him go out in the wee hours of the night to get some sort of craving!!!!

MarchMum Mon 13-Aug-07 23:09:01

Grilled Chicken
Mashed Potatoes

Good thing it's all healthy!

PurpleLostPrincess Mon 13-Aug-07 23:17:13

I braved it on my own and made it! Grabbed a Solero (exotic fruity smoothy thing) while I was there and that was yummy too.

I want more now but I can guarantee he won't go out there!

MamaMaiasaura Mon 13-Aug-07 23:21:32

kyala - i craved meat with ds

PurpleLostPrincess Mon 13-Aug-07 23:26:22

With DS and DD1 I had sausages and mash with thick bisto gravy all over it nearly every night!

Needless to say, its their favourite meal now!
