Just curious to see what wierd cravings people had during their pregnancy.

And it's fun to think of all the strange things we wanted :-)

For me I could never have enough black olive straight from the can or Wawa Italian subs with TONS of vinager. LOL.

With my first, I wanted sushi ginger. And, of course, anything I wasn't supposed to eat. Raw-fish sushi when I first got pregnant, and doughuts and french fries when I found out I had gallstones and then gestational diabetes. With my second, cheeseburgers.

With my first son it was nothing but french fries and frosted flakes (cereal) throughout my whole pregnancy. With this pregnancy it has been alot of different things.. at first it was chicken (lots and lots of chicken.. and i hate chicken lol), fish, grilled cheese and tomato soup, fruit (oranges mostly), and lots of water. Now is all i can think about is cinnamon rolls... ill make a dinner for my fiancee and i sit and eat cinnamon rolls.. its pathetic.. lol

In my last couple of months I had the strongest cravings for the coffee frappaccinos they sell at the Costco food court. I was never into them before I was pregnant and for some reason a frap from Starbucks or anywhere else would not take care of the craving. I had to get one every day - at least once, no matter what. I would go on my luch break at work, stop on the way home, weekends. I remember freaking out because I realized they were going to be closed on labor day and I didn't know what I was going to do! haha

ICE and FREEZIES
I was addicted I would chew on ice all day and night I would go through one of those bags you buy at the store in 2 days easy. The Ice tasted alot different than how it does when I wasnt prego it was the most satisfying thing to me. My husband wanted to kill me , b/c its so loud. I started substituting with freezies , but only the purple white and pink ones . I know im iron deficient the doctor said thats why i craved ice but this was excessive. Now you wont even see me look at ice or freezies

Michelle, I know the feeling. But for me it wasn't Red Bull, it was, and still is, Monster Energy Drinks. I LOVE them and they were helpful because for most of my pregnancy I was working carzy hours and getting 3-4 hours of sleep a day so I wanted and felt like I needed it. But my doctor said that because I am a borderline diabetic that drinking even an ounce during pregnancy could put my daughter or myself at risk. :-(

Potato salad and Fiesta Taco Salads from Taco Bell.

The worst one though, was the Red Bull. We all know that's not allowed. Well I LOVE Red Bull, always have, always will. When I was pregnant I used to get the craving for it so bad that I wanted to rip my hair out. It got so bad that I called my doctor crying because I couldn't think about anything else, and she told me that I could go get one of the tiny cans and drink half of it.... *sigh* worst.

And Ashlyn, no offense, but mashed potatoes with mayo is pretty damn weird lol.....
