What are you craving? - Page 2

post #21 of 76

I've been craving salads and fresh veggies. My usual likes are gone, most notably I have totally lost my taste for soda, which is good!

post #22 of 76

I have been drinking iced tea and lemonade constantly (from the cheap sugary powder mixes) because I can't stomach plain water, pickles, and now french fries and ketchup.  


I'm making DH pick up dinner for us tonight.  I am getting a 'turkey sloppy joe'  it's not like the saucy stuff on hamburger buns called 'sloppy joes' most other places.  It's a sandwich with deli turkey, swiss, coleslaw, and 1000 island dressing on rye.  I normally try to avoid coldcuts during pregnancy and don't eat many anyway but I really really need to eat this sandwich.  Like now.  lol.

OMG, I am desperately craving gas station burritos. Not the kind you microwave, but the deep fried ones. I bought the last one at the corner store today, and I figured that would be fine since lately I take two bites of anything and I'm full. Well, I got home and ate it, and now all I can think about is getting another one! But I don't know anywhere else that sells them, and this place won't have more until tomorrow! Ack! greensad.gif

And my husband is laughing at me because I can barely choke down any of the yummy, healthy food we have around the house, but gas station burritos hit the spot, LOL!

Hmmm, the cravings seem to have hit this weekend:
-goat's cheese on pizza, and pasta;
-peanut butter on arrowroot cookies;

I'm not so much having cravings right now as I am just infinitely suggestible.  I now want at least half the things mentioned on this thread!


But I subscribe to a bunch of blog and Facebook cooking stuff, and I can't abide food pictures.  Facebook has become rather fraught!

... At first, before the positive, it was ICE CREAM! Then that continued for a few weeks... Now I don't even want to LOOK at ice cream!


As Missbrea says - I am VERY suggestible.  So, what's standing out, is usually what I want.  Except at the grocery store.  There -- urgh. I usually want NOTHING.


Past week or so it's been egg sandwiches. With LOTS of BACON. 

Usually, I won't bother making them. Not too crazy about 'em. For sure not enough to go through all the steps and different "layers."

Now -- when I get that first bite.... WORTH IT.. the frying pan(s), the toaster, the mayo knife... Mmmmmmm!!!!!

The other day I was desperately craving kolaches. I couldn't even go to sleep Sunday night because I wanted them so badly. It went away, but now this thread's got me wanting them again! greensad.gif

DH made the dinner of my dreams last night- cheeseburgers and lemonade!
I really just want to eat pizza, cheeseburgers, TACO BEL. Ohhh what I would give for a cheesy gordita crunch...but the closest Taco Bell is over an hour away. High fat, high sodium, MEAT!!

This is hillarious because before I was pregnant I ate 80% raw/vegan and was considering making the leap to 100%. Now spinach makes me gag. I can tollerate fruit but anything green is gross.

I want a huge steak.

Taco Bell. Yes. Fries supreme. Also, poutine.

And today I want toasted tomato sandwiches with cheese and mayo. Maybe bacon. Which is funny, because I am pretty much paleo plus raw dairy, and don't eat a lot of pork. Mmm mayo.

Mmmmm BLT!!

Sonic drinks and Taco Bell.

I'm happy to report that I've lost my usual sweet tooth.  Eating really well so like someone else said, I don't have cravings like I will when I'm not able to eat so well.

I've totally lost my taste for coffee!!!!! Which is nutso to anyone who knows me, because I pretty much exist on coffee...oh well, I'd already cut my dose of caffeine down to 1/3 caffeinated to 2/3 decaf before I got pregnant.

I always lose my taste for coffee too the 1st trimester.  It's really sad to me.  lol.  I want a big Dunkin Donuts iced coffee with cream and real sugar.  In about a month I'll treat myself to one.  I did have some coffee ice cream last night (Starbucks Java Chip to be exact) and it was really good so maybe the coffee will return sooner than I think.


I am also craving eggs which I don't normally like.  Just gobbled down the last few bites of my preschoolers egg bagel sandwich and then had to make myself one.  Weird.


I may need to get Taco Bell for lunch today.  And we're having pizza at a friends for dinner.  I'm getting a calzone.  Been craving one from this specific place for years since we moved.  Healthy day.  As long as I'm not gaining weight yet I don't care at this point.  Vegetables look gross still.  But I did make zucchini noodles for dinner last night (search amazon for paderno spiral slicer - coolest thing ever) topped with homemade vodka sauce and I was able to eat a big plate of zucchini that way.

My midwife tolde to go high protein- meat and veggies only, maybe 1-2 fruits per day.
The OB I saw (and loved) said paleo all the way. I have pcos and had pre-e the first kid, and GD with my second. Personally, I think the perfect health seams most reasonable.
I've read it all and I'm swimming. I can't figure out what to follow and esp when. I worry about restricting much in the first trimester. I'm hungry all the time! Decisions decisions!

So, I am craving Ramen Noodles. I always crave them. I know they are awful, but I do have a bowl a few times a year. I won't indulge, though! I am also craving pickles.

Thread Starter 

Every morning I crave a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit. Today I could barely think straight at work, dreaming of this magical biscuit...unfortunately, I can't get away from work to go buy one.

However, someone brought in homemade cookies, so a couple of those have pacified me for now. And I am having a half-cup of coffee. Usually with nausea both sweets and coffee sounds distasteful, but this morning they are hitting the spot.


EDIT: I could only drink a quarter-cup of coffee, before it started tasting nasty to me. (I am so thankful that the repulsion is coming naturally, because I am usual a complete coffee fiend. I tried cutting back while TTC and it was basically impossible for me to cut it out all the way. Now I can go days without wanting it. Woo-hoo!

I got my kolache this morning. DH is home sick from work, so I ran and got donuts and kolaches for breakfast. Now it's lunch time and I can't stand the thought of eating. I am not even slightly hungry. greensad.gif I'm going to try to at least have some water.

Yeah, I'm happy about the coffee aversion too. With both kids I had a really hard time cutting down my coffee to safe levels (blush). My only issue now is that it is such a habit to start my day at work with a big coffee which I sip until lunchtime...I miss that, and I don't even get the compensation of not needing to pee all time! I'm soo NOT a tea person greensad.gif

DH took me out for Mother's Day today. Had a great veggie egg omelet and some blueberry pancakes. They were so yummy. Eggs have really been hitting the spot.

Trying to eat something every 3 hours so keep my tummy happy.
