Pregnancy Cravings??

Cravings during pregnancy are so weird. I have been all over the place with my cravings and food aversions. I remember with my 1st pregnancy In the beginning I was craving Orange Juice. I could not get enough of the stuff. I probably drank a Gallon every 2 days. Then as time went on I craved Rice Crispy treats,Strawberries, Chinese Food,Pickles, and Steak. When I was pregnant with baby #2 I craved milk , Bagels and cream cheese and plain Mac Donald's Cheeseburgers. Also I found it strange that the entire time I was pregnant with baby#2 I could not look at or eat grilled chicken. Now I am pregnant with baby #3 and even though I am just entering my 2ND trimester I have craved Ice Tea and Ice Mocha's. Now I have been making my own Ice tea at home with decaffeinated tea,but I have given into the Iced Mocha's. So tell me what kind of crazy things did you eat or not eat when your were pregnant???

With #1 it was clam cakes, cole slaw and hot dogs (fried and greasy) that I craved. Actually, now that I think about it, pretty much anything fried. Nothing repulsed me. With #2 I could not even look at tomato sauce, or anything with tomato sauce in it with out hurling. I don't remember what I craved with her.

Oh Lordie! LOL!

With #1 - it was watermelon. Hard since I was pregnant in early spring when watermelon was hardly in season. Hubby would scour the stores and come home with that water-packed melon that was almost white. Then I moved on to Peanut Butter Capt'n Crunch cereal. Very funny since I NEVER had it before.

With #2 - Ranch dressing & cucumbers with salt, Chinese food, and salami sandwiches with spicy brown mustard, pickles on white bread.

With both I had some serious aversion: Any kind of raw meat and chicken - cooked or raw.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and commenting!

Sour candy, lots of it! I ate it till my mouth was raw. After Halloween I bought all that I could find on sale! I even packed some of it to take to the birthing center!
