Ketchup. I couldn't get enough. I put it on everything; mac and cheese, bread, pickles, anything you can think of I would put it on it.

My first it was roman noodles. The second hot cocoa. The third chicken wings and it had to be the bone in ones not boneless. My husband brought home boneless ones one night and I almost cried. I made him go get more.

With my 4 year old daughter I craved mega salads with everything in it, applesauce, and we ate at our favorite mexican place at least twice a week. I also had a very intense craving for beer(i hated beer before i got pregnant). Of course I never drank any but I could smell one being cracked open from a mile away and always wanted to sniff it...lol.



With our 5 month old son it was still mexican food. celery & dr pepper

[deleted account]

the only thing I craved was pepsi. Then the last month I craved brownies with chocolate frosting on top, and I am not generally a sweets eater. The only thing I couldn't stand was the smell of ground beef cooking. I could eat it, I just couldn't smell it.......lol. Oh the joys of pregnancy!!!!

I was extremely sick from the day the preg. test said positive, until I delivered. The ONLY things I could hold down were canned peaches in water, vegetable soup, and cucumbers in vinegar. Miserable!

I was obsessed with ice cream. I would try to chase down the ice cream truck, but was too large to make it, so one day I finally sat and waited for him. From that day on he always stopped by my apartment! Other than that, anything and everything. I missed sushi the most!!!

I've been really craving powerade because it helps with the morning sickness. Umm...chocolate but I can't eat peanuts or anything with peanuts in it and my favorite candy is Snickers bars. And sandwiches, Subway and Quiznos is all that I've been able to keep down. My poor husband has been gaining the weight that I'm suppose to be gaining because everything makes me nauseated.

Quoting Katie:

Hot chocolate and canned pea's were like a staple. I simply detested anything having to do with ground hamburgur meat!
Mind you I was due the end of August.....I ate many a hot dog that summer. Now I don't really want to look at em!


omg, noooo wayyy!"!! i was so disgusted of ground meat that when i would pass the meat section at the supermarket, my hubby would tell me to look elsewhere when he would see the ground meat, i would get nauseous... ground meat and cream cheese, i couldnt stand the sight of it... oh, and also, some smells got to me, too, like old spice deodorant... my husband would where it and i wouldnt want him near me, cuz it disgusted me...

salt. I would destroy a bag of tostitos lol. I also would get weird ones like bacon [I don't eat pork at all] and m&m's which I really don't like. I liked broccoli early on but later it would make me vomit.

Quoting Emily:



Quoting Kate:

I never craved anything. Food made me want to cry because I barfed it all up. I puked the day I delivered! When I finally was able to keep something down I usually wanted Taco Bell (ie REALLY crappy TexMex). But that usually came back up, too. I'm hoping with the next pregnancy to NOT have that issue.





Don't worry, I puked SIX times a day with my first (I wanted to die and swore I would never have anymore), and the other three I only puked if I had a migraine or something. The baby I'm pregnant with now has caused me no nearly no sickness at all, just maybe I gag at a weird smell or something. My eating hasn't been affected. And the OB can give you promethazine if you are too nauseas. Have faith!





Towards the end of my pregnancy Zofran was my best friend. I'm so happy they make a generic now. It was like pulling teeth to get insurance to cover an 8mg pill a day for 4 months. This time around I've been promised Zofran from day one if I need it. We tried phenergan but it never worked (even the supositories didn't work...that was probably TMI but I'm open). I was puking at least 3-4 times a day every day until the day I delivered. The day I went into labor I was 20 pounds lighter than before I got pregnant. And yet I can't wait to do it again...what is wrong with me?! ;P

I craved Hardies when I was pregnant. I had never eaten there until I was pregnant. I also had cravings for strawberry shortcake. My boss used to let me have an hour lunch just so I could go to the grocery store to buy some.
