aah, this is fun to think about...she was built on yogurt, muesli, strawberries, lots of lettuce, WATERMELON (i ate till i dropped), cheese, eggs, yummy bread ( i m getting hungry as I write this), joe's o-s, milk, ice cream, apples, cham tea, buffalo sauce, bananas, pasta and kosher dill pickles....i did drink lots of water but i can not say i enjoyed that a lot...


every time the instructor said "now your uterus is the size of the water melon" ...i kept giggling this weekend since she is pretty much made of it :-)

Ice cream, milk, chocolate, bacon, eggs and ice cold water.

For me it's been:

Greek yogurt and lots of it, salad, free range-grass fed beef, grilled cheese, organic whole milk, clementines, frozen yogurt, ice cream, potatoes, chile rellenos,



I always thought it was weird the ice thing but proved to be true for me when I was severely anemic (pre pg).  It's a pica behavior associated with anemia.....fixed the anemia and the desire went away--so strange.

Yikes! I also had some other pica related urges (wanting to eat a brick and dirt), didn't think the ice thing was related. I have been trying to up iron in my diet, I'm not even a vegetarian, I am actually quite the meat eater! I also got some floradix samples from the birth center.



O/T, but the song We Built This City has been stuck in my head all day b/c of this thread.  lol.gif

lol me too!


Also, I am shocked at how often nachos have shown up in this thread!

I will be surprised if this baby doesn't come out an actual watermelon!  I've eaten a RIDICULOUS amount of watermelon.  I mean a TON.  Prior to it being in season, I have pretty much craved fruits and milk for almost the whole pregnancy.  I've eaten a lot of fruit and I drank way more milk than I usually do.  I had an aversion to eggs in the 1st trimester and that oddly seems to be back a bit.  Other than that, it's been my usual foods.

When morning sickness was at it's worst fries from burger king were the only thing that sounded good to me. It was ridiculous.

I can't get enough ice! Although I have had problems with anemia, so it could be partly that, but I fill mason jars (the BIG ones) full of ice and carry it around with me, just crunching away. It's so satisfying.

This little boy: French fries (I know, I know), spinach, boca burgers, anything with black beans, and lots of ice.

yeahthat.gif  Popped in my head as soon as I read the title!


AFM:  Oatmeal, nachos, peanut butter and strawberry jam on whole wheat toast, veggie breakfast sandwiches from Starbucks, fruit (whatever has been in season), and red bell peppers.

sour cream, greek yogurt, salads, baked potatoes, bananas, red rasp leaf tea, cheese. I can't normally eat dairy either so I have gone a bit crazy. Also random treats like chocolate chip cookies (hooked right now! haha), ice cream, licorice.

I just read through this thread, and now I'm positively starving.  We have nothing to eat in the house right now...  Grocery shopping is tomorrow.  I need to pull up this thread at the store orngbiggrin.gif
