im just interested to know what everyone craved for during their pregnancies. me- the first pregnancy was apples. anything fruit but mostly apples. the second pregnancy (which is now) is apples and carrots w/ ranch.



My other cravings with the first and second pregnancy was also popsicles, milkshakes from burger king, fast food (mainly at the end), bananas and peanut butter together. but it was mainly popsicles and apples. What were yours?

I wanted baked potatoes with extra sour cream and chocolate frostys from wendys. Then one time I went to a KFC/Taco Bell and got tacos and green beans. lol. There were times I just wanted snicker bars. Nothing was healthy at all.

This second pregnancy the most abundant craving is beef. Good prime steaks, medium-medium well. Lots of au jus and seasoning. I have a restaurant here nearby that make the most amazing prime rib dinner and it so affordable. The friggin steak is huge and I put it away in about 20 minutes lol!! I also craved chili dogs, corn dogs, and Taco Bell Chalupas in my first pregnancy and I still do in this one lol

Hi Katie,

When I was pregnant with my daughter I only wanted to eat chicken - no beef, no pork only chicken and I was a lover of steak and burgers prior to my pregnancy. With my son I mostly craved caesar salad. Weird I know but I guess that is what my body decided I needed. One thing that has remained since I had my daughter is that I still have not rekindled my love of steaks - for some reason red meat just does not appeal to me anymore. When I make myself a burger now it is with ground turkey....I guess some healthy habits were developped and never lost.

I constintly craved stuffed mushrooms but only had them probably twice and I craved onion..like to the point that I had to control myself not to just eat it like an apple But everyday I had to have chocolate chip cookies, and the only "dinner" type food I could keep down was beef and brocolli or pasta with butter and parmesan cheese.

I craved what most pregnant women stay away from which was anything hot and spicy... My favorite was hotwings from Buffalo Wild Wings... But towards the end which was summer time, i couldnt smell fruit without having to have it

Vegemite toast and cold milo was all I could eat for breakfast. At different times I craved strawberry milk, salad sandwiches, apples, hot chips and raspberry cordial.

My first pregnancy I didn't crave much.

My second, I was SO sick the first 4 months, but during that time I craved pork, so I ate a lot of bacon and ham. Then the rest of the pregnancy I craved sugary candy (tootsie rolls and starburst), cherry Icees, root beer, milk, and steamed green beans.

This pregnancy I'm only 10 weeks but my biggest cravings have been for Dr. Pepper, curry, tootsie rolls, and softserve ice cream!

Fruit Salads, nachos, chocolate milk, blizzards, cheeseburgers, yogurt & berries, dr pepper, and steak. I lived off of cheeseburgers for a while, it was awful but I went through a spell that anything else turned my stomach except for them.
