Anyone having any cravings yet? I don't remember when mine started with DD.

Last night laying in bed my mouth was watering for some warm, thick homemade bread with butter! Broke out my bread machine today and can't wait! I have no idea if its a pregnancy craving or just a normal craving

What about everyone else?

They change every day for me. Last week it was fresh avocado with salt. The week before that it was beef. Now it's sweets.

They're constantly changing for me, too. Yesterday it was banana pudding. I had made one Monday night before bed and had some for breakfast yesterday. And then some more in the afternoon. Today it's enchiladas.

Salsa and chips and fried eggs. My daily lunch. Pizza too. Great. This will be my fat pregnancy. With DD it was all about sweets.

Mmmm.... pad thai makes me want green curry tofu ....


Last night the only thing I could even contemplate eating were pierogies and Tofurky sausage, both fried in butter. Go figure.

Woke up craving beef stick & cheese on crackers. And we don't have much of anything in the house right now. *sigh* Need protein. Drinking lots of raw milk, so that helps. It's not enough, tho.

Everyone's cravings sound SOOOO good!

Lately, I can't stop thinking about stuffing and mashed potatoes with gravy. I'm giving in and making a little Thanksgiving dinner tonight. Yum!

I usually don't get cravings, but have food aversions. Well the aversions just started today. I was at the store grocery shopping when stuff just didn't sound good...ugh. Food that I normally love, I just can't stand. Here we go again.

I wish I could develop an aversion to hot fudge sundaes. The fetus wants them constantly though I limit it to one a week. A small one. I want one right now. Last time I had an aversion to McD fish fillets, which normally I love. I couldn't take more than one bite of one before getting sick. It was kinda funny.

I crave a greasy fast food hamburger with cheese and the works, and I haven't ate beef for years. I ate the entire remains of a fruit tray I brought to a party yesterday. Blueberries,strawberrries,pineapples & blackberries with light yougurt dip.

Could use a little more morning sickness.

I desperately want to make chili for dinner tonight. I have all the ingredients and it sounds soooo good.

However, the smell of the raw meat makes me gag. I'm not sure how I am going to get past that.

Me too! I fantasize about stuffing and mashed potatoes daily. What is it? A carb thing? I'm also craving Mexican food, burritos, enchiladas, chips and salsa... Yummy!

My cravings are constantly changing, but once I get my mind on something I HAVE to have it or I cant stop thinking about it. Then there's the things that I think I want, but then decide I dont once I have it, that's kind of a pain.

We're having dinner at my sister's house tonight, and my father is cooking. She mentioned that he's going to be making shrimp and garlic pasta. I'm like, um, NO! The smell of shrimp cooking, even the thought of the smell of shrimp cooking, is so nauseating, I can't guarantee I won't hurl. My dad was all disappointed (tough toodles), but he's going to make meatloaf, which just makes me . I hope there will be mashed potatoes, too!

Been craving hazelnuts since the beginning...
Muffins off and on (which I haven't had in years)
Went through an egg phase where I couldn't get enough, then it was salmon.
Lately I've craved bread (which I haven't had in years) with butter or melted cheese.
Now it's just anything with melted cheese (veggie soup is best).

I also frequently crave and eat spoonfuls of honey with raw butter throughout the day...

Warm and creamy is what I am craving, but I can't ever seem to figure out what the specific food is. Tonight I had french fries from In n' Out that hit the spot. Normally, I never eat fast food. It is definitely a pregnancy weakness. I am actually kind of turned off by sweets right now, which is totally unusual for me. I made my MIL a birthday cake last night and didn't even want to sneak any frosting while I made it!

oh, my dad made meatloaf last night for us all. And mashed potatoes. And gravy.

Then we picked up some manchego cheese on the way home.

Normally I'm not picky at all - but when I'm PG there are certain foods that I normally LOVE but I can't fathom eating (grilled cheese, eggs, broccoli :Puke.) Spinach - yuck - but escarole - YES! So weird! Cookies? Nah. Ice cream. Oh hell yeah!

I like the idea of pizza but ONLY Pizza Hut. (Pizza Hut?? I haven't had Pizza Hut in probably 15 years.) I'm also in on the fast food thing - I was like this with DD - french fries and a milkshake. YUM.

And I am dying, dying dying for more spicy food. I'm kicking myself for being cheap today and not getting take out Thai. With DD I ate Indian constantly and to this day she loves Indian food.

It's funny, so many of the things everyone else has mentioned are what I crave. Indian food is huge for me during the first trimester. With my daughter, I went through this weird phase of just wanting rice and butter chicken sauce (I couldn't stand the chicken itself). Now, it's rice, peas and butter, ice cream, and, just like last time, McDonald's cheeseburgers. It drives me crazy, I try and eat fairly healthily and the time that it is most important that I eat well, I can't stand the thought of most "healthy" food.

I've noticed that in general, the things that I absolutely can't stand were things I mildly didn't like before I got pregnant. The smell of stew or eggs especially. Also, surprisingly, the smell of popcorn smells really disgusting. What seems to be happening is that I've become a "super sniffer" and I smell EVERYTHING which means that a lot of food that I didn't think really had a huge smell now really SMELLS. The smell of raw chicken for instance. Blech.

Seriously! What is it about bean burritos from Taco Bell? This has been the constant craving between all of my pregnancies. I really wanted one today, too. I think that I'll cave tomorrow and indulge. I'll at least walk the 1.5 miles and back to get it
