Weird craving when you were pregnant?

[deleted account] ( 29 moms have responded )

How crazy is your craving(or "was" your craving)?? If it wasnt crazy tell me anyway. I didnt have anything too crazy I really like the smell of laundry soap! I think it gave me a sense of "everythings clean" since during that time I really wanted to clean everything and get everything ready!! I also loved dipping my fries in my soft served vanilla ice cream from mcdonalds.

All I wanted to eat was fruit..mostly oranges and apples which are normally my least favorite fruits. I had major adversions to every other type of food, mostly meats. I could not eat anything my fiance made at all. At one point I craved Red Lobster and I went there and couldnt eat. lol....I craved beer during my pregnancy so I drank the non-alcohol kind. At the very end (8 mos) I craved Mc Donalds Quarter pounders w/ Cheese only and the french fries and coke...I felt so ashamed since I had been eating so healthy until then!

Oh I had the same problem with cleaning...when I was in labour with my first I spent about 3 hrs cleaning in between contractions. I wouldnt say mine was a weird craving but with both of my kids I needed hot sauce. It was on everything, it got so bad I was putting it on my finger and licking it and on my cereal..hahhaha

My first pregnancy I craved jalapeno chips and I hate anything hot. My second pregnancy I was sick the whole time with no cravings. This pregnancy like clockwork every morning I'm craving chicken. Breakfast two days ago was leftover chicken and risotto, followed by two mornings of scrambled eggs and chicken w/ cream of mushroom soup; I didnt eat the eggs. I never eat breakfast!

When I was first pregnant with my son, I craved pickles (I hated pickles before I was pregnant). Then I started craving french fries, but ONLY McDonalds french fries. Then at about 6 months I had a huge craving for orange juice. I just could not get enough orange juice! Didn't really craving anything else after that cuz all I wanted was orange juice 24/7. That craving lasted all the way up till I came home from the hospital with my son. Now I rarely drink it! haha

omg the dirt thing is so weird lol....but a mineral deficiency would make sense I guess...isnt it weird that a pregnant body knows what you need most and makes you want it even if you dont like it!

Im 17 and 22 weeks pregnant right now. I have to eat everything with vinegar. lol I liked salt n vinegar chips before but now I've been drinking it out of the bottle and putting it on popcorn, all chips, beats, lettuce, spinach, toast, pasta, pizza, fries, and dipping my sausage & egg breakfast sandwiches in it. I've also been craving eggs & milk which I hated before. A friend told me vinegar helps you absorb calcium so maybe its a calcium deficiency. I'm not sure, but I probably wont give up my vinegar anytime soon.

Well with my first born, I was 16 and craved dirt! Yes dirt from the ground! My aunt would go outside, dig up dirt from the ground and put it in a gallon bucket and place it in the freezer....I would put it on everything I ate!!!! Cereal, toast, bagels, eggs, bacon, sandwiches, potatoes, carrots, I mean everything! Even candy! Drs said it was a mineral defiency! Lol...but with my 3 daughters, I didn't have anything weird...
