nothing. absolutely nothing sounds good to eat right now. if i wasn't pg i think i'd give up eating all together. but i'm choking down as much as i can because i want this bean to grow big and healthy.

Poptarts - which I haven't eaten in YEARS! Raspberry frosted. Yum. Also craving raw oysters because I drive by an ad for them at my local fish shops. Resisting that urge, of course.

Taco Bell chicken soft tacos, thanks to the weekly thread I'm not eating them, but I'm craving them. I'm eating organic baby carrots instead :

* cheese crackers
* Taco Bell tacos (which I never normally eat -- apologies for spreading this urge)
* bacon (which I haven't eaten in years because I converted to Judaism and I've had 3 times in the past two weeks )
* strawberries

I have no appetite what so ever, exactly like when I was pregnant with dd. So, I get to force myself to eat various healthy things. Very sad.

Hamburgers with blue cheese, which I haven't eaten yet because 1) I don't want to go to the store and DH isn't home, and 2) I still can't figure out if blue cheese is okay to eat while pg. Veggie burgers sound good too. I might get some of those instead.

Apples have been yummy. Mac and cheese is incredible (Annie's is the best) and baked potatoes have been making me so very, very happy. Let's seen, white and starchy, white and starchy...I think I'm seeing a pattern here.

Lemon is sounding great to me, too, lately. A friend bought pastries after passing her US driving test on Thursday, and I so *DESPERATELY* needed to get the lemon one. (Wouldn't be my normal choice, either.)

i've craved & eaten pretty much nothing but junk for the past 3 weeks since m/s started - all carbs and protein (fast food -which i usu. don't do, ramen, nachos, pb & j, cereal, pizza, everything bagels w/ cc and tomato, egg and cheese sanwiches) not a green or fresh thing in sight. it's terrible.
now in the last two days i started feeling a little better so i had a salad last night (w/ fried shrimp and rice - i know, i know).
i try to have whole wheat, organic, and high fiber stuff to balance out some of the nastiness but hopefully my vitamins have covered what i missed and i can start eating healthy again now.

i can't say i have had any real cravings as such, but it is nice when things don't repulse me. i decided a bagel with cream cheese sounded good so DP went and found me some cream cheese i could eat (lactose intolerant.. grr.. so he had to hunt down pasturized goats cr. cheese..) but then forgot the bagels. i went and bought some bagels which, when i stuck on in the toaster smelled magnificent. sadly when i unwrapped the cream cheese it was covered with mould. i almost burst into tears. but i am hoping to soon rectify the situation.

hahaha.

but yeah, basically anything salty and carby is not repulsive. which is not great for the digestive system - things are getting clogged. but i figure better to eat something than nothing...

I want FAT! I've craved- nuts, guacamolie (the only way I eat avacados), fried mushrooms, fried potatoes (done at home), fried squash, and egg rolls! Oh, I also crave pickles and salty things. This baby seems to hate sweets though, and those make me feel sick.

I ate this last night for dinner and it was sooooooo delicious. Goat cheese and sundried tomatoes mushed together over pasta. Starchy and tart. YUM.

Honey crisp are my absolute favorite. It's like someone took the best characterists of every apple and rolled them all into one. Yum yum yum.

First it was kimchi.
Then (and still) goat milk yogurt.
Also kombucha---especially with fresh ginger.
For awhile miso soup.
Then I had to buy some of the oh-so-expensive olives stuffed with garlic.
Cesar salad with extra anchovies in the dressing.
Yesterday cole slaw.
Can't stand coffee, even the smell or sweets.

Meanwhile my husband is balancing my salt and sour fixation with a near daily need for cheesecake. Couvade syndrome? I actually dreamed that he was in labor last night!

Pineapple. I bought one at the store the other day & had to cut it and eat some before I could even put the rest of the groceries away! Also orange juice and apple cider from the orchard near my mom's house.

Parmesan sliced super thin on crackers tastes pretty good to me.

I'm over the candied ginger b/c I can't stand sweets anymore.

I'm also over curried tomato spread on crackers. I ate about 4 cups of it a couple of weeks ago!

I also ate a bunch of hard boiled eggs--until I found something icky in one. Now I can't even think about eating one.

This morning I was thinking about swiss cheese spread (from that recipe in Laurel's Kitchen) on crackers. I think I'll make that later this afternoon.

Does anyone else change their cravings and adversions on a daily basis? One day I'll love a certain food and the next day the thought of it will disgust me. Ginger is at the top of my adversion list right now and last week it was my savior from m/s.

My craving of the day is shakes with ice cream, milk, and banana. We'll see if it lasts through tomorrow.

Yes, my "preferences" change daily. I won't call them cravings because NOTHING sounds good to me right now. I'm not sick, i'm just not in the mood for anything. Any sort of ethnic food is a big turn off right now, and that's usually what I love - Indian, Chinese, Thai, Japanese. I've O.D.'d on soups and stews and now they all smell like dog food to me. Speaking of which, I've seen/heard 2 dog food ads today, kindly describing the big chunks of lamb, chicken and egg, which nearly sent me running!
The only thing that's been tasting good is yogurt and pop tarts.

yup...it's a play it by ear approach to food for me these days.

Today I had an absolute desire for a CTBLT (College Town Bagel/Bacon Lettuce Tomato) sandwich. It's on grilled sourdough bread, spread with smooshed up avocado and tangy sauce, then lettuce, tomato, and super crunchy bacon. I was droooooling...and Dh got me one for lunch. Yum!

But overall, my stomache does best with greasy/fried/spicy things...guess my all-day sickies haven't read any of those oh so helpful pregnancy books!

I've been craving fresh fruit-almost any fruit and the sour gummies as well. I ate a bunch of cantalope yesterday and it was yummy! Dill pickles also sound very good most of the time too!
