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!
What are you craving? - Page 2
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.
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!
... 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!!!!!
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.
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.
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.
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!
