<p>So when I am not nausea central ~ I am craving funny things. So different from my pregnancy with DS. With DS I could not eat ANYTHING with tomato...salsa made me spew everywhere...spaghetti sauce and anything tomato was just enough to push me over the edge. Now I am craving tomato EVERYTHING. Soup, sauce, you name it I want it! The other thing I am craving is vinegar stuff...I ate half a jar of dill pickles the other night because nothing seemed to have enough vinegar. I also went to get my favorite salad because of the dressing ~ a vinegarette dressing of which I had 3 sides of!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Just curious what others are going nutso for...DH thinks I have officially lost my mind! I made him buy me every kind of tomato soup he could find in the store the other night!</p>

<p>Ham and mayonnaise sandwich where the ham is the bread and the mayonnaise is the ham. I'm normally almost vegetarian. We eat beans, rice, and vegetables for dinner almost every night in different configurations.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Vanilla pudding mixed with canned fruit cocktail.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Aversions: tomatoes and coffee - both of which I love when not pregnant. A couple weeks ago I cried because DH put a frozen pizza for himself in the oven.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I don't know why I'm craving so many processed foods. It's totally not my normal diet. I guess I need the calorie hit?</p>

<p>I can't even read or talk much about food these days, so i only read the first post!   I'm not that queasy otherwise, but if I have to think too much about food, then it starts.   It's very strange, as it's my first time preggo and I'm someone actually likes to eat everything.  there's nothing I normally don't like. </p>

<p>i bought 3 different kinds of strawberry yogurt yesterday, and nearly gagged walking by the pickle and olive bar at the market. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>in the mornings i only want baked goods or yogurt with granola, and at lunchtime i'm totally uninspired, but craving either asian food or things with avocado---which means mexican or avocado sushi roll or a veggie sandwich. i think i'm loving tomato stuff too, just not actual tomatoes. soups, salsa...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>dinner time is hard...i'm getting ready to make a grocery list and NOTHING sounds good. and i'm totally averse to coffee, which is so funny because i'm so exhausted i could surely use a cup!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>i guess muffins are my main craving. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>ham and mayo sandwich <strong>imogenlily</strong>! hilarious! </p>
<p> </p>

<p>well right this instant I'm craving Ben and Jerry's chocolate brownie ice cream....which is bizarre, as I don't really like or digest dairy. <img alt="shrug.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/shrug.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>generally, though...fruit. more fruit. bean burritos. oatmeal.</p>

<p>Eggs!  Eggs!  Eggs!  I want to eat eggs all the time.  Scrambled, fried, hard boiled.  And since somebody posted about ginger beer, I've been sipping that a lot.  What a great idea! </p>
<p>My mom got me a birthday lunch yesterday of takeout Chinese - General Tso's chicken.  Mmmmm.  Normally eat fairly veganish, but I'm all over the meat and eggs these days.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My farts are ridiculous though.</p>

<p>Pickles. With peanut butter. omg. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm also craving salt -- in whatever is the most unhealthy form, usually. Oh, and citrus ... especially clementines! I am also really missing all kinds of food that aren't readily available here in Deutschland = mexican and (good) chinese. <br>

<p>These are hilarious!  I'm only 8 weeks and some change, so my life is mostly aversions rather than cravings at this point, but I do eat nearly one cantaloupe a day, and I can't look at Saltines or yams anymore (all I ate for a couple of weeks).  I usually think cantaloupe is nasty or just boring at best, but now it's like the nectar of the gods, so rich, so juicy, and so... NOT nauseating!  I also do well with avocado, but it tastes very different than it used to... This is really bizarre.  (First pregnancy, if you hadn't guessed... I'm still getting used to all this nuttiness!) <span><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"></span></p>

<p>My latest are 1/2 jar of dill pickles and the skin off of 1/4 rotisserie chicken. I couldn't actually stomach eating the chicken but I ate the skin. I KNOW ~ something I would NEVER do not pregnant but it was the only thing that sounded good. It was salty and herby...and just seemed like a good idea at the time!</p>

<p>With my previous pregnancies, I couldn't get enough sugar and bread.  I ate it up.  This time, not so much.  I literally get nauseated every single time I eat anything sweet.  I'm all about spicy, full-bodied meals.  I have been vegetarian for about 5 years, but every time I see a commercial about a steak or big meat sandwich my mouth starts watering.  I don't think I could actually eat it if it came down to it, but it sounds so good and filling. </p>

<p>I have been mainly craving salty foods...plain rice with sea salt...and although I am ashamed to admit it I asked DH to go to McDonalds and get me a portion of chips after I saw the advert on T.V! I can't do it again though the guilt was too much!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I still feel sick ALOT at 12 weeks, I drink a cup of milk with honey 1st thing and it staves off the nausea for a while but I then struggle the rest of the day with food ideas. I've been eating LOADS of mayo, something I usually avoid like the plague.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am just so looking forward to being able to eat my regular diet again when this nausea goes off, I want to eat something other than bland, salty food!</p>

<p>Jello! Can't get enough of it!  Favorite is tropical fusion, and just in case you were wondering peach jello tastes absolutely NOTHING like actual peaches.  It's not bad, just def not peach.  Oh and hot cocoa.  Have 3 cups a day.  I guess it has replaced my coffee habit.  Bonus is it has a goodly amount of calcium in it. :)  Nearly cried when a fellow "helpful" staff member cleaned out the fridge and threw my jello away.  He said "well there wasn't that much left".  I really wanted to scream "I'm FRIGGIN PREGNANT and if I don't eat every 3 FREAKIN HOURS I get so nauseated that I can't stand remaining in a vertical position and I really really can't handle laying on this disgustingly dirty hospital floor tonight!!!!!"  Since only a select few at work know that I'm pregnant, I simply replied in my standard fashion, I kindly asked that he might want to give other staff a heads up next time just in case there is food they don't want thrown out please and thank you. *Sigh* I might have been a hair snarky when I told him that he could gladly come to my house and explain to my beloved why he threw away his piece of the chocolate cream pie that I had saved from thanksgiving dinner with my fam earlier in the day.  <span><img alt="demon.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/demon.gif" style="width:17px;height:18px;"></span> Gotta love hormones!</p>

<p>Grapefruit!  And Citrus in general.  I THOUGHT I was getting past the "thinking of any food makes me hate it so just cook something and eat it and try not to involve the brain too much" stage, but then we've had some sort of a bug in our family recently, so now I don't know what is "bug" and what is "baby".  Whatever.  Food is still difficult!  I LOVE Thai food.  I love tangy foods.  I love it when others cook for me!  Any takers? :)</p>

<br><br><p>This post reminds me of a funny anecdote: I was a vegan through my second, and half my third pregnancy... and then the bacon cravings hit. I wanted bacon SO BAD that I would actually cry when viewing television commercials for bacon.</p>
<p>My husband was a chef at a restaurant at the time, and for Mother's Day they do this really fancy buffet-style brunch where the chefs all come out and cook in front of you, and you serve yourself. Our toddler daughter and I came to it and I was immediately aware of the dish of bacon up at the buffet as I came up to get my vegan friendly breakfast. I took a plate full of fruits and other healthy items feeling really proud of myself for resisting, and sat back down in my corner table and let out a sigh of relief that I'd managed to avoid it. Even better, the bacon dish was nearly empty so soon I wouldn't have the temptation! YES!</p>
<p>Then I realized there was a hidden door to the kitchen in the wall next to me, and in just that moment it FLEW open and a chef came out with a huge, huge dish of bacon to replace the deep tray at the buffet. It was PILED with fresh, steaming bacon. Absolutely piled. As he came out he slipped on something and his arms flew out to catch his balance, inadvertently WAVING THE DISH OF HOT STEAMING BACON RIGHT UNDER MY FACE - back and forth like four times, before righting himself and muttering, "Sorry about that!" and walking off.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I burst into tears, went to the buffet, and piled my plate with about 30 pieces of bacon. And after that I was no longer a vegan.</p>

<p>i would happily eat nothing but satsuma mandarins if i thought i could get enough nutrition from them but that is normal for me to crave this time of year. not really craving anything unique but i have a lot of food aversions. i have found chewing gum helps some with nausea and the water mouth that i get often and sipping ginger tea helps with nausea.</p>
