Any cravings?

This pregnancy is so weird. With DD i just wanted bland food: toast, avocados, bananas, etc. This time around it is outta control I want: spice, pickles, I just ate a small bowl of cottage cheese that had a teaspoon of pepper on it. Yesterday I thought I would die from an Ethiopian food craving, last week it was spanikopita. I am still sick don't get me wrong, I puke almost everyday but when it is over I want spicy ethnic food, like persian pickle. I don't remember having such strong cravings last time....

Anyone else having weird cravings?

Re: Any cravings?

Mine aren't weird, but I do crave fruit and orange juice like a crazy lady. I have to have lots of each every day. And of course, this is an expensive time of year to want strawberries! These were the same cravings I had with DS. And the last few days I've had a strange craving for a whopper (and I really hate Burger King). A few weeks ago it was buffalo chicken.

Re: Any cravings?

I too am craving spicy food, especially Ethiopian food! Today for lunch I had a burrito with lots of hot sauce, so yummy. I'm worried the wicked heartburn will kick in and stop me, but so far so good. Oh, and also craving plain cheese ravioli--no sauce, no butter, nothing but the raviolis. Cravings are weird!

Too funny! It's that bread omg so so yummy. I think I'm craving that and the greens and the beans in tomato sauce. I want spicy veggie stews. Cravings are weird and so are aversions. I made a pot roast in the crockpot today but after smelling it all day I almost puked serving it. I actually couldn't even eat it :-(

Re: Any cravings?

Fruit - I cannot get enough fruit. Grapefruits in particular but that's not weird for me because I've craved grapefruit with every one of my pregnancies.

Tonight I had a wicked craving for chinese food. Now I'm supposed to be eating a low fat diet because of my gall bladder but y craving won out and I had a little bit of chinese food after ordering for the kids. Mistake! My gall bladder is fine but I feel like I'm gonna hurl. No more chinese food for me for a while. blah

Re: Any cravings?

I tend to go through phases. For a week I wanted nothing but apples, now I can't stand them. Same with pickles. Chinese food was a big one. Beef and Broccoli yummmmy. Really I want stuff I can't have though. Cheeseburgers and pizza. I would kill for those right now, and I did cheat and have a cheeseburger yesterday (lowest fat I could manage too, surprisingly I did ok!). I really want pizza though, and that's just not happening. I'm not willing to risk it. It sucks though.

That's exactly what I'm craving. It's one of the only ways I like collards too. (I like to justify the time/effort to get there with the 'nutritional value' of the greens. Shoot!--I just may have to drive 30 minutes to for Ethiopian lunch tomorrow.

My poor husband has been informed we are going on Saturday. The closest Ethiopian place is an hour and a Half away!! But it sounds soooooo good. If I can find a good recipe for it I'll post it. It can't be hard to make :-)

Re: Any cravings?

Unfortunately, besides oranges (citrus fruit in general), the only things I am craving are unhealthy! I usually keep away from white flour, fattening things etc... but all I can think about is store bought pizza, danishes, bagels and hot dogs (and I don't even LIKE hot dogs!!!). Very weird, but thank G-d I am not giving in! I told my husband that I can have one danish this whole pregnancy (I may change that rule ), so I am trying to pace it! And usually I make whole wheat pizza, but the other week DH surprised me with store bought and- boy was it y-u--m-m-y! Hope he doesn't do it again so soon

Wish I were craving healthier stuff!
