cravings while nursing? or am i just crazy?

did any of you get cravings while you were nursing? or am i just nuts...i have been wanting nothing but beef, fruit and fountain soda (yes specifically fountain soda hehe) lol. of course i'm still drinking my water and eating other stuff...but all i really want is beef, fruit and fountain drinks. i nursed my other two ds's but didn't really experience anything like this...am i crazy or are there others who had strong pg-like cravings while nursing their little ones?

I don't think I've had any real cravings like that. Don't know if you're odd or not

Ooooo! I DO!!!!

I'm a nut for red meat right now too - I think it has to do with my iron being so low though...

Also yogurt and Russian salad dressing... I'm weird too, I guess!

hehe maybe we're not the weird ones...maybe everyone else is LOL!!!! hmmm hadn't thought about it being an iron issue....i did assume maybe i was lacking something though! and i do tend to get ill when i don't eat at least a little beef (has something to do w/some enzyme i lack that ONLY found in beef, i forget what it's called but basically my blood vessels start bursting begining at my feet)....so maybe i need more of it while i'm bfing?

*horrible red blush* I ate literally BAGS of raw spinach and entire packages of bacon and sausage when we started nursing. (the ready to eat bacon and sausage you don't have to cook - I would have eaten hamburger but had no time to cook it.) Turned out I was EXTREMELY anemic and on the verge of needing a transfusion, but my doc didn't disclose this to me till my 6 week visit. anyway, it may be that your body is just telling you what you need.

(Yeah, if I'd had my whole brain functional at the time, I'd have made healthier choices then bacon and sausage, but I would literally cry if we ran out. It was ALL I was eating, and it was pretty constant.)

I'm all about beef,clamato and pez. Now normally any one of those would make me hurl,but now I could live on it

ETA,and the precooked bacon. Our commissary has it really really cheap right now and I could easily go through a bag a day myself
