When i was pregnant i craved a lot of fruit and peanut butter! around 8 months i started to crave hamburgers and milkshakes and ice cream sandwiches!



In the first trimester i had the nausea 24/7 but i rarely threw up! i consider myself very lucky to have had an easy pregnancy!

My pregnancy was crazy. I felt sick the whole first 4 months, but never threw up once. Italian food was the worst; just the word oregano made me gag. At one point I ate nothing but chips and salsa for 3 days. My cravings changed often, cheerios, raisin bran, hamburgers, ketchup, heath bar coffe ice cream. My first trimester I craved beer really bad, but of course I didn't have any. I would ask my hubby to drink one so I could smell it! lol

It's fun to read about other people's cravings and story. The 1st few months of my pregnancy were horrible. I was sick 24/7. I only drank water, a little bit of gatorade, and ate icecream. Then throughout the pregnancy I started to hate my favorite foods. Like chinese, cheese omelets, and angel hair spagetti w/ this 1 jar sauce that i liked. I did not want to see it or smell it. I actually lost 10 lbs in the 1st trimester. Now only if I could lose that weight now lol. After that I craved sourcream and onion potatoe chips and fountain soda for lunch everyday. Then it was any type of cake or sweets w/ an ice cold glass of milk. Goo dluck to everyone w/ their babies!

I was very sick with my first and had very swollen feet because where i worked had cement floors. But the only thing i craved was ranch salad dressing. I wanted it on everything.

I only had mild nausea for 3 weeks toward the end of my 1st trimester, I only threw up once, but made myself throw up more just to relieve the nausea, lol! I couldn't eat anything "healthy" during that time, all I wanted was junk food! The weirdest craving I had was for pickles dipped in mustard. Somewhere in the middle of my pregnancy, I craved chocolate milk. But not just any chocolate milk, it had to be 2% milk, in a carton, made with ovaltine. I refuse to drink milk from a jug. The last few months all I wanted was meat, cheese, and potatoes. I ate tons of steak and cheese fries. That's probably why my little boy was 9 lbs 14 oz!

AHH!! Thats so fun! With my son I was sick for the first few months, then I craved mexican food like crazy. At the end of my preganancy I craved PB&J and milk in the middle of the night. Every night. YUM!! I still love it! With my daughter I craved chocolate cake in my last trimester. I couldn't get enough! It then took me 3 years to lose the weight!!! This current pregnancy Im craving a lot of salty food and fruit... the salty food gave me two bouts with kidney stones and two visits to the ER and one hospital admit cuz I wasn't drinking enough water to compensate!! LOL! Fun times!

Both my pregnancies I puked the entire time, at one point with my first i was living off of wheat bread and sprite, yet i managed to gain alomost 60lbs. and i craved salads with balsamic vinegar. with my son i craved anything dipped in chocolate pudding and rice crispie treat, i could eat at least a pan and day and they had to be home made not the premade ones.

with my first pregnancy i was sick for 5 months it was awful but i craved fried rice and prawn crackers. I had so many fights with my sons dad over forgetting the prawn crackers id sulk like a child until i got them. My second pregancy i felt sick until the day i hit 12 weeks and all i craved with my daughter was ice. I loved the crunchy sound that and mr. freezes my freezer was stocked full of them and bags of ice.... Cant stand them now

I didn't throw up once while I was pregnant, that's not to say I didn't feel like it some days. But i feel lucky that I wasn't too terribly sick. As for cravings, I didn't have any. I have no idea why. Maybe with my vitamins and eating healthy (for the most part) there was nothing for my body to crave. One weird food thing that happened was that I've always hated root beer and around month 7 I just decided I liked it. I never craved it, but if it was around I would drink some. And I still like it, just not as much anymore.

Oh this is a fun one! I was extremely fortunate that I was not sick with either pregnancy! With my first, all I wanted to eat was baked spaghetti from fazoli's and with the second I kept this little Mexican restaurant next to my work in business(not really but they knew who I was quickly! LOL) with chicken quesadillas just about every day!

When pregnant with my son almost 9 years ago it was a breeze I didn't have a sick moment. I craved pizza like it was going out of style. Now I am pregnant with my second child and man I am so sick all the time nothing seems to stay down. I haven't had many cravings at this point but I am sure something will come. I am only 8 weeks so we'll see.
