Cravings?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have not had any overwhelming cravings with this pregnacy. With my first, I had all kinds of cravings..in my last trimester I needed to make a daily run the the grocery store for the gourmet olive bar. I drove to the shore off season just to find candied apples, I woke at 3 am to go to the diner for mozzerella sticks and vanilla milkshakes! Hmm.. maybe this baby won't be as much of a voracious eater as my first..

So how about it? anyone with wierd cravings..anyone with no cravings?

Lets see, lately I haven't been able to get enough of toast with loads of butter. Yummy yummy.

Oddly, I have started craving coffee. But I just do the decaf if I do give into the craving. I've never really been an everyday coffee drinker. Two weeks ago I went ahead and had real coffee...two cups...and it actually made me tired. But decaf doesn't go figure. Usually I've been going to Starbucks....oh, the Chai Tea latte is awesome too.

Wow, someone else who craves coffee taste during pregnancy! During my third pregnancy I started craving the taste of coffee, and no one in the family drinks any coffee (even de-caf). So I would get a de-caf cappuccino once in a while, bliss, and this time it's the same thing. Yummm.

The rest of the pregnancy I've craved PLUMS PLUMS PLUMS, like four or more a day, and then I was eating as many cherries as DH would buy when they were in season. I basically eat a plum before and after every meal...the baby is gonna be born purple/red!!

Otherwise, total aversion to most food (especially meat) has been the rule this entire pregnancy. I get by easily on one good size meal a day. I just hate having protein and veggies and everything else, but I still eat well because I know I "have to." Now I have developed a big old miserable hernia again, across the top of my abdomen, and if I eat more than a tablespoon of food at one time, the hernia sticks out all over and burns and feels SO AWFUL. Sometimes I worry it'll burst, but I doubt it will. So needless to say, eating is NOT my favorite activity. Normally I thrive on organic, gourmet cooking every day....but not now!

Eek! A hernia sounds awful.

I have also been craving coffee..I usually drink alot, but hardly drink any now that I'm preggie(The baby is quite active enough..) I make due by smelling the coffee brewing that my husband makes.

And I had been craving red meat..though that was probably due to the iron deficiency...Usually I hate the stuff.

That is so weird because I want coffee too. And I am not even a coffee drinker.

With DS, I really had no cravings at all. And then at week 40, I craved pancakes morning, noon, and night. I think my body was trying to store up some energy or something for the delivery LOL.

Pancakes, good idea!! At our house they are vegan and made with oat flour---and god bless maple syrup! I think now that you mentioned pancakes, I'll make some tomorrow morning. My kids thank you!!

I'm not craving anything in particular.
Although, sometimes when I'm in a snacky mood, I only want fruit. :P But that's really about it!
