    Default Cravings

    I'm officially having cravings. Tomorrow I'll be 11 weeks and everyone has been asking me if I'm craving anything. Well now I am. I want salty foods, espically chips. I've never even kept chips in the house because I don't want the kids to eat junk but I may have to start buying them.

    I'm also having major food aversions. Very little sound good to me. Normally I have a major sweet tooth but now the thought of sweets makes me sick. I'll probabally have a baked potato for lunch (with lots of salt). Fighting nausea all the time isn't helping with the aversions.

    What did you crave when you were pregnant?

    I know this is going to sound gross, but dont most cravings from pregnant women!!
    I craved fresh fruits and veggies all the time, but the gross crap was, rare (almost raw) steak, and pickles dipped in ranch dressing HAHAHAAAAA
    Funny thing, the pickles are gross to me now, but I have since eaten my steakes RARE and I do get alot crap about it but I love em that way!!

    With my first daughter (12 now) I craved Watermelon the entire time. Do you know how much watermelon costs in Ohio during the winter? I would eat two whole ones per week. My second daughter (6 now) I craved those jars of Dole peaches. For some reason I have expensive cravings. ha ha. With my son (3 now) I craved Subway BMT subs with lettuce, tomato, extra pickles, green peppers, banana peppers, salt, pepper, mayo, mustard, oil and vinegar. If one item was wrong or not on the sandwich the whole thing was just ruined for me. Needless to say, I gained more weight with the last one than the first two.

    I have been craving chips a lot too. It's hard, because they're expensive and I really don't have the money in my budget for chips! I've also been into pizza. I've been making pita bread pizzas for myself and that usually hits the spot!

    First trimester all I wanted was meat, ribs steak etc and normally I don't eat much meat at all. After the first trimester, I lived on deli tuna subs, cheerios with fat free milk, sugar free hot cocoa and fresh pinapple, I don't know where that came from because prepregnancy I could never be bothered with cleaning and cutting one, by my 6th month (mid winter) I was eating almost a whole one each day. I had so many aversions to things I normally eat. I couldn't chinese food, lettuce of any type, cooked fish was iffy, yogurt had to be blended, blah blah blah. I know now that it was the baby because my little princess is a monster carnivor who loves any kind of meat, fresh pinapple is her favorite fruit and will only eat the blended types of yogurt.

    I had an aversion to all dairy but I still wanted to eat it. I also had an aversion to sauerkraut and it made me nauseous.

    When I was pregnant, it was peanut butter cups and Arby's. I could eat at least three beef and cheddars, a large curly fries and a drink by myself.

    With DD it was PB&J sandwiches and Doritos by the pound. I was 90 pounds when I got pregnant with her and for the first time in my life I felt free to eat things I normally would not have (high calorie, bad for you stuff).

    With DS I could not keep anything down for 6 weeks. The entire 6 weeks I lived off of salt and apple juice. Forget using a cup, I carried around the carton of juice and licked salt from my hand.

    I craved tomato juice and French fries. I couldn't go past a fast food place without commenting on how good the fries smelt, even if I couldn't physically smell them.

    I love fruit, salads, a salty/spicey things. We ate Mexican at least 2 times (if not more) a week when I was pregnant with Paige. My comfort foods for both (eventhough the first trimester was in the summer has been soup) then again, soup is my comfort food anyway.
    In fact for lunch today I am making me a pot of potato soup and I will be taking the left overs to work with me tomorrow since I have to pull an all day shift with no help since we are short handed again.

    I still eat pretty much what I did when I wasn't pregnant and those combos were weird then.
    For example I use honey mustard instead of marinara for cheese sticks (always did that, but some people thought it was a pregnant thing) and the big one was a on Meatball subs from Subway I always get banana peppers or jalapenos and the spicey mustard. Joes sister told him that it must be a pregnant thing and he said, "she's been doing that since '95 when we meet and I hope she hasn't been pregnant for 9 1/2 years...lol

    Aversions: Non so far, with Paige, I had to get Chinese food from the chains that didn't have buffets, because the smell of the sushi and the raw fish areas at stores made me want to hurl...lol
