What foods have you been craving? Do you eat all the things you're craving?
i literally dreamed about eating Chocolate Truffles last night. I also crave this certin Hot and Sour Soup that we have to drive 40 minutes for.

When I was pregnant, it was watermelon. I ate about one watermelon every two days. And... I still have a whole watermelon about once a week now. :) I will be so sad when watermelon season is truly over.

Fruit! I could eat fruit all day every day. I did, but then I failed my 1 hour glucose screen so I've scaled back a bit lol.

I also went through a phase where I would eat pepperoncinis by the jar full.

Oh, and chocolate milk. YUM.

Those have been the consistent ones. I'll get a craving out of nowhere (like, I HAVE to get Pho, like yesterday), but as soon as I satisfy it I never have it again.

When I was pregnant, anything that had red meat in it I craved. I could have had a burger or steak everyday for a week and never would get sick of it. I didn't eat that everyday of course but if it was suggested, I would always say yes.

Haven't had any intense cravings yet, but I have developed a strong aversion to kale, which is weird because I was eating it just fine earlier.

I craved red meat and spicy food when I was pregnant.

In fact, that's how I knew I was pregnant. All I wanted was a hamburger and I hadn't had one in three years. Funny thing though, I had no desire to eat French fries. I only wanted the burger.

With my first one it was nectarines, with my second it was green chile, with this one it seems to be red meat so far.

So far, I've been like Junebug...VERY STRONG cravings that mostly go away once I've eaten whatever it is. Although I've been eating, in general, a lot of fruit. And in the first 2 months, all I wanted was mashed potatoes and gravy.

I was extremely nauseaus/all day vomiting with my daughter for the first 5 months. Ugh.

Once I could eat, I craved steak, spinach, and prunes. The last thing I ate at midnight before my scheduled C-Section was a large iced tea and 6 prunes. I made my DH prepare it, too, and he was so grossed out! LOL!! If I ate that now, I'd be camped out on the potty, but I could eat anything while preggers and I never got any digestive issues.

My first pregnancy all I wanted was Jimmy Johns Bootlegger Club and Tea.

This time, The first 8 weeks I wanted steak burritos. After that it become anything with chicken and now (Beginning of week 19) all I want is Cheesburgers.

Looks like Meat will be my thing. Before The only meat I would even touch was turkey and once in awhile chicken.

The first three months it was citrus. After that I craved hamburgers, chicken burgers and chocolate milkshakes.

Hah, I'm amused reading eveyone's stories. I have a craving for potatoes right now. Mashed, fried, baked, no matter what, I want it. It's kinda nice because I'm feeling queasy and I can actually eat potatoes, too. Win-win.

At the very beginning of my pregnancy, I wanted meat. I've never been a big meat eater, but I wanted burgers or bacon, or better - both together!

After about a month of that up until I gave birth I constantly craved salads with gorgonzola, dried cranberries and nuts and always wanted a daily smoothie.

My main intense craving was for pepperoni. So much so that I had a dream of eating a pepperoni pizza sub sandwich and woke up and could still taste the pepperoni!!! We picked up a meat lovers pizza from Papa Murphy's and covered it in pepperoni before popping it into the oven (and my we I mean "I"... DH had no part in it except eating!!! LOL)
