<p>I had the weirdest cravings the other night, I thought our cravings deserved their own thread.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I asked DH to run out the other night for apple newtons (which I had never had before) and dill pickles. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>WHY?  Is it early for wacky cravings?  Apparently not.  This morning I want mashed potatoes with fried onions on top.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am also on a red gatorade and ginger ale kick. mixed together.  I guess that isn't too odd though.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyone else?</p>

<p>no odd cravings. Just strong ones (and BAD ones!) Like, I never eat fast food. Maybe once a year. Right now, at least 3 times a week I'm stopping to get fries (and a frosty in 15 degree weather) or a bacon cheeseburger :/</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But yeah, I want salty fries all.the.time.</p>

<p>I had the pickles one too. DH was at work on Sunday and I texted him and made him bring me home a jar of dill pickles. And then ate almost the entire jar.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The weirdest one for me though, was ginger ale. I should preface by saying a HATE ginger ale. I loathe the stuff. I have a history of mocking DH (and anyone else who drinks it). So a week ago we're flying to San Francisco and DH orders a ginger ale on the plane. They give him the can, and he opens it, and suddenly all I can smell is how DELICIOUS that ginger ale smells. He pours the ginger ale in to a cup and I take the cup and drink the whole thing. DH looked at me like I'd grown a second head :)</p>

<p>I want anything with red sauce/tomato based. Pizza, spaghetti, V8, tomato soup, salsa. Also, orange fizzy drinks like San Pellegrino or Izzy Madarin Orange. Not orange soda but orange juice based drinks w/sparkling water.</p>

<p>I'm liking anything with vinegar and whole tomatoes, not juices or purees. I'm even liking vinegar with the tomatoes. And usually, I absolutely hate vinegar and tomatoes. No other odd cravings for me. But I'm suddenly addicted to sweets. I've never experienced such strong cravings in my other pregnancies.</p>

<p>Oh the weird cravings I'm having.  Last week, on my way into work at 5 am I desperately needed Sweet & Sour Chicken.  So random, and sadly, I didn't get any.  Today on my way into work I really really wanted some chicken strips with ranch dressing.  And not just any chicken strips, I'm pretty sure I'm craving a restaurants strips, but I don't know which restaurant so I'm screwed.  <span><img alt="ROTFLMAO.gif" height="15" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" width="39"></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've been loving ice water, so yummy!  And also Hansen's Ginger Ale.  It's so good and you can actually taste the real ginger in it. </p>

<p>I hear that orange juice spritzer type craving.  I have been constantly wanting Polar Orange Dry.  It is only like 5% juice but it tastes like carbonated orange juice.  I drank an entire bottle of grape soda the other day also.  UGH. </p>

<p>gardenofsimple - with my DS, I literally ate a crispy chicken sandwich once a week. I've only had 2 so far this pregnancy (which is 2 more than I typically eat!) but the greasy, salty, mayo-y fast food just calls to me!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Other cravings - coke and soup. I also had a deli pickle and yogurt the other day back to back, and felt very sterotypical. But it was gooooood. For me, its less about what Im craving, and how hungry I am ALL the time. I've eaten my lunch everyday at 10:30.</p>

<p>motray, I'm starving too! My DH said to me today "the saying is eating for two, not eating for a family!" but I just can't get full! I had my second dr appt today and I've only gained 2 lbs (I totally expected it to be more!) so I must be doing something with all the food but still! It's getting a little tiring to be eating all the time!</p>

<p>Hi all, not sure how much I'll be checking in, but excited to be expecting number two...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm all about anything pomegranate. Always yogurt. And apples. And the other day, just had to have a bag of jalapeno cheese puffs. And sweets I cannot do right now, they gross me out. I'm having fun rolling with what sounds good.</p>

<p>I want junk. <span><img alt="faint.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/faint.gif" style="width:37px;height:22px;"></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mostly curly fries and <em>jalapeno poppers (w/cream cheese filling!).</em> <span><img alt="yummy.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;"></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Luckily, I've curbed the cravings for the most part and redirected myself (not without an internal tantrum) <span><img alt="splat.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/splat.gif" style="width:30px;height:30px;"></span>. Mostly because I have my LO's with me and I really don't want them thinking the fast food binges are ok.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also craving dill pickles (got the mini ones), pretzel goldfish and latte's.</p>

<p>Well, I gave in and ate an entire box of jalapeno poppers.  They were SO GOOD.  I hate spicy food, who knows what is going on with me.  Maybe I am having a mexican baby.</p>

<p>Jalapeno popper for me too last night, thanks to this thread.  <span><img alt="eat.gif" height="26" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/eat.gif" width="31">  They were really good.  I've also been craving spicy foods, which isn't unusual for me, but seems weird for me at the moment because of how 'bleh' I feel. </span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span>I had the most fabulous soda the other day:  Stewart's Orange Cream Soda.  Holy cow, it was all I could do to not chug the entire bottle.  It was amazing.  Kinda pricey, but totally delicious!</span></p>

I hate jalapeno poppers the other day! They taste so good but I get indigestion afterwards. I am craving sushi like crazy. Normally I like it, but lately it's all I think about. Maybe my body needs the fish? Also eggs. I could eggs all day. What's weird is one of my favorite things to eat is bagels with cream cheese and tomatoes and I cannot choke them down lately.

<p>I love orange cream soda!  Except every once in a while it reminds me of that St Joseph's childrens asprin. I find it hilarious that one person mentions jalapeno poppers and the rest of us are eating them.  haha!</p>

<p>What's strange for me, is that I usually DO NOT like dill pickles, even the smell of them. DH likes them though, so we have them in the house, and when he eats one, I always smell it and am like "gross!". That is, until this pregnancy. I just can't get over it, because this is so unusual for me. Now, I LOOOOVE the smell of the dill pickles, and I'll even eat them! :O </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also, this one isn't so strange, but I REALLY want mashed potatoes. Real or instant, doesn't matter. But not baked potatoes, or scalloped...I want mashed! Like I could eat them every day! </p>

<p>Came back to check out the cravings and found i've started a jalapeno popper craving epidemic! <span><img alt="ROTFLMAO.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="width:39px;height:15px;"></span>  I'm admitedly jealous as I haven't had any!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Honestly I think I'm done with junk for a while. We just got back from vacation and while we did a great job of bringing fruit and healthy snacks (i even made a double batch of pumpkin bread muffins), I still ate a bit of the unhealthy stuff (spurge!).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I think overall what hit the spot best were the 2 sourdough breadbowls (at seperate meals! geez!) with clam chowder. When the weather turns cold we've been known to do a soup + breadbowl night but these breadbowls were perfection. I'm salivating just thinking about it.</p>

<p>I seem to be very impressionable these days!  And before this sounds wierd...you need to know that we are a mostly-GF/SF house due to dh.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Well, last night I wanted frozen pizza with pepperoni.  And not just ANY frozen pizza.  I wanted one with CHOPPED pepperonis...not slices!  WTH???</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So DH schlepped out in the snow and bought me 3 Totinos Pepperoni pizzas and a box of Wheat Thins (which I'm gorging on now!).  </p>
