I've been craving salads with lots of creamy dressing and yogurt. With ds #1, it was potatoes (and I hate potatoes!), salad greens, and an ethnic Lebanese food called "menaeesh" --it's bread baked in a stone oven, topped with thyme, sesame seeds, and olive oil, or lamb, or cheese. In Lebanese culture (my dh is Lebanese), they believe that if you have a craving, you must satisfy it, and if you don't, and you scratch your body, your baby will have some evidence of your unfulfilled craving. Believe it or not, my ds has a little birthmark the shape and color of a potato on his hip!
So if I have a craving, dh will go to great lengths to get me the food I want (last pregnancy he would drive to my work to bring me menaeesh).
