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
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!!!!

This pregnancy all I want is tomatoes...in salads, over pasta, salted on their own, virgin bloody marys, yum! It's at least a healthier craving than with my first pregnancy, then it was ice cream and boy did that packed on the pounds!

ok....I know this is not going to sound that great but dont knock it till you have tried it. My favorite treat was nacho cheese chips with strawberry ice cream used as a chip dip. Its like a sweet and sour effect, you get the cheesy and sweet taste. so verry good!!! lol
and as for meals...I was always craving fish and chicken.....MMmmmm

i am a junk eater for the most part and the only thing healthy i probably eat is green beans lol but during my pregnancy i craved salads from the olive garden (mainly for their salad dressing) and baby cut carrots with peanut butter

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.

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...

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.
