Ahem, I just downed half a jar of canned peaches. I don't know what came over me, but I'm going with pregnancy hormones! Anyone else like this with something nasty (like canned fruit)?

XD

I have been craving sabrett's hot dogs with mustard and sauerkraut, with yoohoo. It's a childhood nostalgia thing. I have not indulged though, except I have been eating some of my homemade kraut more lately.

I also have been drinking a ton of extremely watered down lemonade. I'm having a hard time with plain H2o right now :/

Spaghetti (brown rice - I have a gluten allergy) with pesto and pine nuts. I can't get enough of it!!! And fizzy drinks. I never drink them otherwise but I bought a six pack of san pellegrino grapefruit last night.

I keep craving Kraft Dinner, but have avoided it so far since we don't actually buy it. I have no idea where this craving is from. I'm still all about the grape fruit, but have added red seedless grapes to that. I swear, these days I eat at least two grapefruits and a huge bowl of red grapes every day. I'm thinking baby bird loves fruit!

 

New aversion - lettuce. Boo. First it was field greens, now it's lettuce. Baby bird does not like salad, which is too bad because I used to eat salad every day. I LOVE salad, but the thought of it makes me sick now.

 

Another weird thing - I have been a vegetarian pretty much all my life. I've just never liked meat, and my mom said she couldn't stand it when she was pregnant with me. The thought of eating it still makes me not feel so good, but the smell of it cooking has been so appealing to me lately (DH is a meat eater and so is the rest of my family). My mom was making a roast last weekend and when I walked in the door I was all "mmmm, what is that delicious smell?" She was shocked!

I was a vegetarian for many years until I about 1/2 way through my pregnancy with DD. I just craved it so decided to have some. My DP and DD are vegetarian still so I don't cook meat at home but I do have chicken or salmon about once a week while at work.

(I've just joined the Aug due date group! Due date is 19 Aug 2013. Hello!)

 

I crave bitter greens like endive and escarole, kinda like rapunzel's mother. Before I found out I was pregnant, I inhaled an 8 pack of Korean seaweed. Craved Korean food last night, particularly barley tea, even dragged my 89 year old grandmother along for her first Korean meal. (She liked it). I'm ok with my standard breakfast: oatmeal with currants and milk, and yogurt with fruit on top (pre preg it was honey, but friut now is a nod to health). Also odd dairy cravings: chocolate milk and peppermint ice cream.  Otherwise, nearly all other food is horrific. At times smell of cooking food (now DH's task) is dreadful, but end results I'm able to tolerate. We just had spaghetti w homemade veggie meatballs and that Marcella Hazan tomato sauce that dreams are made of.

I've been a pescatarian for 3.5 years after years of vegetarianism. This week, I saw someone eating a steak on TV and told DH that I needed a steak. I don't think I really want to do it, but DH is very supportive if that's what my body needs/wants. I dunno, maybe I need iron?

I'm craving dairy, which I'm probably sensitive to. eyesroll.gif And I'm probably sensitive to gluten, but keep eating it, anyway, and seem to be getting stomachaches from one or the other (I think it's the gluten?). Warm, comfort foods like chicken'n'dumplings and mac'n'cheese sound sooo good. And I do NOT feel like cooking, but I'm the only one around who can. greensad.gif

I've heard craving citrus fruits means you need more water. I too am craving them and have taken it as a signal I'm not drinking enough.
post #52 of 57
That's so interesting, Franny. I'd buy it, although I'm getting my citrus in the form of watered down grapefruit juice and I'm not sure how much more I can drink without actually floating away smile.gif. But I'll try!

Melly, that's the thing for me too. Citrusy water.

I actually bought a jar of organic lemon juice because I'm wanting lemon water so much right now, and I don't want to be constantly cutting lemons! I've never used this stuff before but it's working - and better than the nasty concentrate stuff.

My MW also says craving sugary stuff is dehydration. Water fixes everything, eh?

I wish it would stop me from throwing up. I guess it's a good cure-all, but not actual magic. wink1.gif

Actually eating pickles keeps me from vomiting. Strange but true. And tasty as hell.

Oh, man... Too true, unfortunately. I have to be careful with water at certain times because it has a high propensity to come right back up. redface.gif

I detest pickles, but I'm awfully glad there's something that's helping you!! My 5yo loooooves pickles. It's so funny when most of us in the family can't stand them.
