I didn't want to admit this but for the last few weeks I've

totally gone off chocolate!!! You'd think I'd be pleased but I'm not. I used to have some in the evenings once my son was in bed. I'd sit and dunk it into my coffee.... mmmmmm.
But now. Thinking of it brings back lovely happy memories but I have absolutely no desire for some. It's the same with crisps, biscuits etc. I'm quite offended. Why couldn't I have gone off broccoli or something equally naff.
Why don't I want any? I'm well past morning sickness so that's not to blame. sad

Hellohoh! You are complaining?! Consider yourself lucky...During this preg I have been craving too much choc which is a lot worse than going off it! Like I really need the extra weight! lol

I've had that this time too - so weird for me, don't think I've ever gone more than a day or two in my life without eating chocolate and then went for a couple of months without as I just didn't fancy it at all!!!

Mine comes and goes, now at 25 weeks I am definitely back on to it!

On my 1st i went off chocolate completely all the way through - i ate really healthily had a great pregnancy - put on about 4stone blush

2nd pregnancy - went off all cooked foods, anything that was hot, and completely craved chocolate and Fab ice lollies - ate crap the whole way through and only gained a stone.

every pregnancy is different. I was convinced the second was going to be a girl because it was soooo different, but I have two boys!

I went off all my favourite things. Chocolate, tea, full english breakfast. Your body tells you what you need, hence cravings and what it wants you to avoid. The further along I get the more I can have but on the early days couldn't look at any of the above let alone eat it!

Actually yeah, I'm off tea as well, which is really annoying because I always preferred tea rather than coffee.
Very strange this pregnancy thing. Interesting though.

I've been off chocolate, too! I've always been into sweet things & had perhaps two packets of crisps a year (people always think I'm exaggerating when I say that, but I really would always rather have a choccy bar!), whereas now I'm pregnant I don't really like anything sweet & can't get enough crisps. Throughout my morning sickness I was addicted to Seabrook's Ready Salted & now I'm onto any kind of Salt & Vinegar crisps I can get my hands on.

I've also not been that interested in tea, especially at the beginning, but can drink it now. I just never crave it like I used to.

Oh, but I have found that I can really enjoy Terry's Chocolate Orange despite my chocolate aversion. It seems to be the exception to the rule. I just hope I get more interested in chocolate in time for Christmas!

Happened to me in my first pg- completely off anything sweet... came back about 3mo after the birth.

springysunshine ooh- Seabrooks S&V are the best crisps EVER! I really want some now (28weeks pg, and craving salt today...)

Im at the end of my pregnancy, but for the first 5 months or so, all I could stomach as onion bhaji's and flaming hot monster munch. I would go to Tescos/ Asdas practically every day, and eat a whole party pack of bhajis in one sitting blush

During my 2nd pregnancy, I went off chocolate completely. The smell made me want to heave, and it was around christmas time as well, all those boxes of chocolate being wafted under my noise, not nice.
