I'm eating apple after apple.

Very partial to an egg and salad cream sandwich.

And strangely can't get enough of water left in a glass over night, so it's all warm and strong tasting.

Well done on apples! Nothing so healthy here, have just discovered Gu Naughties Millionaire's Flapjacks. Am telling myself it's ok after having gone off chocolate between 8 weeks and 30 weeks, but tbh I am now overcompensating. And Orangina. Nothing else is so thirst quenching.

mashed potato.....can't get enough of the stuff!!

I'm on pickled herring, plums (not purple one, but the greeny ones), marmalade and proper eggy creme caramel. Water has to be just above freezing point.

grapes, but thats only 'cos i've got a box of them next to me. I eat whatever is in easy reach grin. I've not got any proper cravings yet sad

I've gone off chocolate too, glad to hear it wasn't a permanent thing, I enjoyed being able to devour a family size pack of malteasers last time without feeling guilty.

Oh yes ThePhantomPlopper; don't get me started on tomato sauce! Although, tbh, I've always had a fondness for it.

prawn mayo sandwiches. which is not great since we're meant to be careful about prawns - but i make them myself so i know the prawns aren' lying about getting poisoned!

when do cravings occur? i don't know if thisis a pregnancy craving or just normal!

BeckyBendyLegs Tue 29-Sep-09 12:08:08

Is anyone having cravings that aren't food related???

I can't get enough of Mr Sheen dust wipes (the original ones smell sooooooooooo good!) blush Shame you can't eat them, although my house is more dust free than it's been in a long time!
