Is it too early for this kind of thread? orngbiggrin.gif Not for me anyway... Thought it might be fun to see what you're all craving or can't stand!

 

I am disgusted by the idea of red meat right now, especially ground meat. Beans sound gross too, and melted cheese. Oh, and potatoes, especially boiled ones. And soup. Basically the staples of my diet orngtongue.gif Oddly enough, it's not so much about taste as texture.

 

I've really been wanting soft cheeses. I like them normally anyway but now they really sound good. Just bought feta, blue cheese, AND cream cheese at the store redface.gif Normally we avoid bread, but I just bought a bunch to put cream cheese on... If bagels were more available here I'd be eating a lot more of those too. Fish doesn't sound too bad, and fruit is good too. Most veggies sound ok, and scrambled eggs. With feta and some greens. Mmmm.

 

Who else??

Ha ha!  we are channeling each other.  I bought bagels and cheese at the grocery yesterday and cream cheese sounds yummy!  And I have had the most amazing craving for pizza, french fries, and citrus stuff.  Oranges, grapefruit, and orange juice.  My morning coffee is grossing me out though, as well as, all of our leftover thanksgiving foods.  And green olives sound really yummy right now...

I love your Brown bear name!

Is it normal to be okay with a food one day and the next be repelled by it? 

 

A couple days ago I made DP some devilled eggies for lunch and they looked so delicious I popped a few myself. Then I made a really yummy shepherd's pie for dinner and quite enjoyed it. The next day I opened my fridge and the smell of the boiled eggs hit me and made me feel a little nauseous. Then I tried to eat some leftover shepherd's pie for lunch and I just couldn't stand it. grossedout.gif

 

So far I've been craving a Chipotle burrito bowl, and also pickles to snack on. And celery, which I don't usually care for. 

 

I don't have a car, so I like to plan my cooking in advance and make just one trip to the market. So this could get annoying quick... but so worth it in the end. baby.gif

Candy! 

 

I hate candy...I even hate chocolate. Now it's all that I can think about. I've always had some sort of sick pride in the fact that I hate candy...and now I'm going to have to give in and buy some...or a lot, even. My weaknesses have always been more geared towards pasta and breads. *sigh* My poor teeth!

Hummus, I can eat it by the tub-full daily.  And pickled things, especially banana peppers, which I hadn't had before last week! 

 

I really don't like the idea of pork right now, and sometimes whatever DH is eating just grosses me out.  If I made it, it's ok, but if it's something he made for himself...get away from me!  lol.gif

We don't have a car either and are already terrible meal planners. I don't think randomly wanting different foods is going to help either... Well, every trip to the store involves a nice little walk! In the freezing snow... Well, at least it's exercise ;) And it is totally worth it in the end.

Oh dear. This makes me nervous, because I don't like candy either and also take pride in never even wanting to eat it blush.gif Who knows what the future holds.

I have no cravings yet, but am having aversions to sweets! I'm normally a sugar freak, and my last pregnancy would eat a pan of brownies in one sitting. I'm really hoping it lasts because it's nice not to want ice cream and candy every night. Last time I couldn't look at meat without it turning my stomach, but am loving it now.

Mmmmm..... blue cheese.  I have to be dairy free when TTC/Preg/Nursing so I am super jelous.  Be glad you are in Finland too and not America, where the docs would go Tsk Tsk for eating soft cheese (which is a bunch of balogna).

ME TOO! Its kind of a tradition for me and Chase to go to WF and eat veggies and hummus in the car on the way home.  A tub never lasts more than 48hrs around here.

I guess I would call that a gestational diabetes blessing in disguise

 

I am not at the super craving phase yet, last time it was chicken salad on rasin toast, or the grapefruit juice, but its more carby things I am choosing, like sweet potatoes and chickpeas.  And I am putting spices on stuff, I usually never do.  It'll be fun when it really kicks in!

Oh Bean!  Please call boy now.  I'm easy either way, but, if I could pick.  Boy!  Mine is OJ straight from the jug.  I drank a gallon yesterday alone.  

 

Maurine, you started a craving on me.  I went to whole foods for hummus and came out with:  Hummus, Olives, Taboule salad, a ginger ale, some home made tortilla chips, apples, satsumas, and the new edition of Mothering.  Tell me that is not the basket of a preg. woman!

 

I am not at the super craving stage yet either really.  But I do have some aversions.  Sweets do not sound good to me at all, but, I am all about the salty.

Oh they can be full of balogna here too... "untested" herbal teas (nettle, rrl, etc.) are off limits but a liter of coke a day is just fine eyesroll.gif just for an example. But yeah, overall they are more reasonable - possibly the food safety regulations are more stringent here so you're not as likely to get deadly bacteria in lunch meat or soft cheese. Though they do say to stay away from unpasteurized (which I agree with unless I could find a trustworthy source - but I wouldn't tell anyone anyway! lol.gif)

Ok, I am in trouble.  Today I went to breakfast and had 2 pancakes with a side of fried potatoes.  The pancakes turned to grossness in my mouth but I scarfed the potatoes and could have licked the salty greasy plate.  When I got home it was ruffles potato chips dipped in garlic hummus.  Anyone else seeing a pattern.....

Whose idea was this hummus thing anyway???  Cause it is Mmm Mmmm good.......

(Sorry if I started anyone thinking on it who doesn't actually want to be craving it!)

I bought some tonight and am trying to eat it with carrots. Just because of this thread. My DH goes "Are you supposed to eat that with carrots?" Me...*blink blink...looks at the hummus* "I have no idea. It just sounded good on the due date board." LOL. 

 

I blame all of you.

I did inhale two packages of hummus this week independent of this thread! I am craving all good vegetarian comfort food, lots of beans, more cheese than usual, no meat.

 

I made mashed potatoes for the first time in 4 years last week, too, and ate most of them. If anyone wants a yummy twist on the classic, I boil yukon golds (skin on) in the food processor with butter and plain nonfat yogurt and salt and pepper. They come out really think and flavorful because of the yogurt.

Ooops!  So he knows you're preggers now?  Or does he have no clue what a due date board is?!

 

BTW, hummus can absolutely be eaten with carrots.  And red pepper, and mangetout/snow peas, green beans, etc.  I'll often put a plate of raw veg and hummus out for my girls and they love it!

He goes "No you're not!" Ha! He was very excited and shocked that I even lasted two days. He said "I wouldn't have wanted to miss a whole month of the pregnancy." aww. :p So yeah, I totally caved. bag.gif

I had my first hamburger in at least a year today.  I have been a veggie for awhile now.  I woke up this morning craving a burger from a local restaurant called Hueys.  The one I like is called a smokey melt and it comes on wheat toast with smoked cheddar cheese and all the trimmings.  I also wanted cheese fries.  Yes, it also can be ordered as a black bean burger.  No, I didn't go that route.  It was so good I almost cried when I ate it, the mustard, the pickles, the cheese, all warm an oozy.  If I am not careful, dh will guess before I can tell him.  He did a double take when I did not order the bean burger.  If they were open for breakfast, we would have stopped before church.  I was so hungary during service I quietly ate a luna bar.  

 

Anyone else having really strong hunger issues?  I had a light breakfast. (doing the small portion thing, I am already having a nausea issue).  Then I made muffins for my sunday school class, I ate one then.  Then half way during service, it was like WAM!!!  I had a baby dragon in my pocket! So I scarfed my luna bar and still had room for a good 3/4 of a hamburger, a few nachos, and some cheese fries.  Where did that come from???

 

I am a little worried about the weight gain thing.  I was doing weight watchers before to trim down.  I am not hugely over weight but I am not in the normal weight range.  Now I am craving things that I normally did not eat!  What's up with that?

 

Anyone else have that problem?

I remembered!  I am glad you told...I bet it was a happy moment for the two of you.  We told some family today in person.  It was so much better than over the phone!  The hugs were so nice. 

 

Anyway...back to cravings...I keep wanting baked potatoes with cheese, brocolli, and lots of sour cream!  That is, in addition to the hummus.

I drove by McD's today and was jonesing for a hamburger.  ITS BEEN 4 YEARS since I ate there, and I hate hate hate EVERYTHING about that place, not just the food.  But a Big Mac sounded terrific today.  I think our bodies try to tell us what we need to eat, in order to get the right nutrients to our babies.  Being veg, your body may be craving iron, and thus red meat.  I am also having really bad hunger issues, 4th meal is no longer optional, its mandatory. 

 

ps, you guys want a delish and nutrish snack.....a monkey smoothie.  Ice (or not), coconut kefir, almond milk, banana, cocoa powder, and peanut butter (sunbutter here), mix with a stick blender, mmmmm................I asked hubby to make me one last night, he was too grossed out by the ingredient list to go for it, so I did it and it was heavenly

Wow. Potatoes have been sounding really gross to me but you might have just given me a new craving!

 

Actually yesterday DH came home from a concert smelling like a burger from the grill kiosks that are only open at night (food for drunken people, lol) and I immediately got an incredible desire for the fries you can get from those places... fresh and covered with mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, pickle relish, and crushed garlic bag.gif Omg the greasy salty goodness. And eating them out of a styrofoam box with a plastic fork makes them even better! winky.gif I may have to make a late-night journey just for those if the craving keeps up. 

 

Mostly though almost nothing sounds good. Seems like the queasiness/food aversion peaks in the early afternoon - is it throughout the day for you ladies or worse at a certain time?

Mine is a little in the morning on that trek to work.  I try to have a little snack on the way and then I eat a breakfast when I get there.  Then sometimes in the afternoons.  I have discovered that if I don't feed the "baby dragon" regularly then I am prone to queasiness on an empty tummy.  I am drawn to the hot salty foods big time.  I think it is because of all of the extra fluid volume I am working on.  I am trying to drink lots of liquids but not a whole lot sounds good except OJ and smoothies so I am sticking to that.  I may try some lemon-aid today and see how that settles.  But when I have a craving, (hot pretzels)  it is a must have or I cannot stop thinking about it.eat.gif  There is a bag of store bought microwave hot pretzels in my office fridge as we speak.  Mmmm hot with salt and mustard!!!!

I'm just craving protein.  Lots of protein.  It was actually one of the first things that made me go, "Hmmm..." last week b/c usually I'm a junk food carb eater, and all of a sudden I was buying tofurkey slices and extra gardein nuggets.  I'm vegan and am going to try hard to stay that way this pg.  I did it last time with just a few blips and was pretty satisfied...but we'll see.  If this protein craving keeps up this hardcore I may have to add eggs in or something.

Oh, hon!  More power to you to stay vegan with your pregnancies!  I have a hard time simply eating "healthy."

 

My new snack is cheese flavored Sun Chips dipped in, you guessed it, hummus!  Pretty naughty but really filling, so I only have a few...
