Peanut M&M's and mexican food, but the mexican makes me sick. Mac and cheese, but I don't eat dairy and french fries...those always seem like a good idea until 20 minutes after I eat them when I get super queasy and totally regret it.

I wonder if I'll crave meat this pregnancy (i'm veggie)-- I didn't with my other two but might give in if baby demands it!

 

I'm also craving BEER. I'm okay with having an occasional drink during pregnancy, but not this early! GAH.

I don't really get cravings right now so much but baby isn't letting me eat much veggies. I am wanting a lot of iced tea now, I've passed 12w I think so technically it's ok.

I've been able to curb the beer craving with flavored (not sweetened) sparkling water.  Something about a little carbonation and flavor and no sweetness really hits the spot sometimes.  I got a 12 pack on Sunday and even DH said he hasn't wanted a beer since we've had the waters in the house.

 

I had a couple of big macs with my first pregnancy (yum!... but yuck :-p) but once my inflammatory bowel disease developed I can't eat McD food AT ALL... it's a good thing, really.  I find that going with whatever I'm craving, but not going overboard, tends to work out pretty well for the most part.

 

This baby seems to want fruits and veggies almost any time.  I'm a meat eater but not really wanting meat this time around, with the exception of the chili dog.  :)

Funny, I've also been craving seltzer. Oh, carbonation. If we had any extra money right now I'd splurge on a Soda Stream so that I could make my own!

i've been doing a lot of seltzer and i had a couple of sips of DW's beer the other night. we have a soda stream and i also bought a few trader joe's bottles for on the go.

I went a little crazy with cupcakes the other day and deeply regretted it. 

post #32 of 85

I only eat "iffy" foods at night right before I go to sleep so that I don't feel the nausea kick-in but this method makes me have the strangest dreams. I might do that with a cupcake tonight! Sounds delicious.

i was veggie for 10 years (vegan for the middle 5 of those) i started eating meat a few weeks before getting pregnant with dd2 and i craved meat like crazy my entire pregnancy. Dd2 loves meat. She eats more meat than dd1 and will eat that first on her plate. She loves it....this pregnancy i almost have an aversion to it. I much prefer vegetarian options.

I haven't been posting much, but I want to start posting more! Lately meat has been totally grossing me out. All I seem to want are carbs. And sweets. Not good.

I just ate three croissants in like 20 minutes...

 

 

I'm not going to lie, I'm eyeing the fourth one.

I figured that if I left one behind I might have to explain that I ate three to DH when he gets home from work, so I ate the fourth (see also: the evidence)

ah, so smart!

 

I pretty much didn't have any cravings for the longest time. Just an aversion to random things: sweets (any type- which is strange because I have the biggest sweet tooth normally) and peanut butter. Then I developed... not cravings exactly, but a strong affinity for spicy food (Thai, Indian, Mexican, you name it). My strongest craving was last week, when I made a double batch of falafel and polished it off with my husband in one sitting. eat.gif

 

Now I'm really stuck, though, because I think my sweet tooth might be back? I really really want Oreos, specifically, which I haven't had in many years. Trying not to give in, because I've been SO GOOD at healthy eating this entire pregnancy. I don't want to start down the path of eating batches of cookies at a time. (Which... even not pregnant, I've been known to do. haha)
