walnuts, ice cream, avocados, salads galore and hummus/soy cheese veg sandwiches - and eggs!  What have your pregnancy "staples"/go-to foods been?  I feel i have devoured the above the whole pregnancy.  my daughter was built on cottage cheese, walnuts and blueberries!!

Eggs, chicken, V8Fushion, dairy (I normally can't digest it, so I've been going crazy with it!), bread (I always love bread) and pretty much whatever other meat I can get.

 

Meat and cheese.  He is his father's son!

Eggs, whole milk, spinach, grapefruit, multi-grain bread, various humane/organic meats (quite a trip for me as I'm vegetarian), pasta, nuts, Ovaltine (which I crave sooo much), ice cream, kidney beans, cannellini beans, pizza...I'm getting hungry...

Hah, nachos with fake cheese redface.gif Also cornflakes with milk. Those are the two "meals" that come to mind immediately.

 

Really though, let's see. Lots and lots of dairy, lots of bread/grain products, various combinations of dairy and grains, bananas, strawberries, apples, peanut butter, honey-cashew bars, too many bic macs. Wow, I have had the most stereotypical girl baby appetite ever.

I don't know but I do know that I've been craving dairy like crazy the whole time. I usually like dairy but don't eat it nearly so much.

MILK! Milk has been my number one craving, I can devour like half a gallon a day! Cereal, mangoes, oranges, amazing cheeseburgers from this awesome campus diner close to our house, strawberries, popsicles, anything with rice, hotdogs with cheese in crescent rolls.

Mmm this baby was built on potatoes in every form. Mashed, baked, loaded, fried, wrapped up in a breakfast burrito, etc. Lots of ice cream, eggs, Chipotle burritos. I think I know where all my weight gain came from ;)

lol, this is fun.

 

My baby was built on whole milk, eggs, turkey, apples, chocolate haagen dazs ice cream, carrots, and baked potatos.

 

I feel really really lucky that I didn't crave a lot of unhealthy stuff because this list probably would be atrocious if I had. The only thing I couldn't resist every now and then was cheap white grocery store cake, for some reason I can't stop thinking about it!

 

Anyone else addictied to crunching on ice? That's another weird pregnancy development for me.

Milk, eggs, oatmeal, chicken, beef, cheese, fruit, and ice cream. For a treat, soda or candy.

And of course, water!

And JBouck - they say that wanting to chew on ice is a sign of anemia, so check that one! :)

My first thought was "my fat stores" because I've had zero appetite for most of my pregnancy and have had to force myself to eat.  The first food that comes to mind, though, is chocolate!  She's been built on chocolate and milk.

This baby was built on:

 

Lots and lots of peanut butter, cantaloupe, cheese, cereal, tons of potatoes, bread, chicken, and there for awhile Arby's loaded potato bites. (not good but I ate them at least once a week IF I could limit myself to that Sheepish.gif)

 

oh and gallons of water!

Ooooh, fun!  Dairy--lots of cheese, milk, and yogurt.  Fruit smoothies with powdered greens added. Meat. Eggs. Chips and salsa/guacamole. Recently spinach salad.  And . . . if this baby had it's way lots of ice cream would have to be added (but I have been resisting this particular craving because of the sugar--I have had several yeast infections that seem to be specifically triggered by sugar)
