I just ate more than half of a 500g tub of cottage cheese out of a mug because I didn’t want to wash a bowl before eating..

I craved pancakes last night. Then in the middle of eating my pancakes I decided they were too sweet and needed a “kick” so i added hot sauce… Pancakes and hot sauce!

@ksus07:  

Yeh it was delicious and I had been feeling really nauseas but after I ate that it settled a lot.

Probably wont go around eating anymore of them but really, I have no way of knowing this.

I had a lot of food cravings but I also had a weird thing for the smell of car exhaust. Whenever I drove somewhere, I’d always find a semi to get behind and inhale the exhaust like I was snorting crack. And Windex…I LOVED the smell of Windex. So weird, lol. Fortunately, my son turned out normal 🙂

This is my first child so I can’t say yet if this is normal for me or specific to this kid but so far I have been craving healthy things like baby carrots, cottage cheese, yogurt, tons of fruit.  I like all of these things normally but I never preferred them over unhealthy options before and now I do.  I’ve turned down the option of ordering pizza (which never happened before) and instead preferred to have a chicken breast.  I also always hated tomatoes my entire life, never even liked tomato sauce or ketchup as a kid.  However, I craved tomatoes on everything for 2 weeks straight but then it went away.  I have also noticed I prefer spicier food now than I did before.  I always liked spicy food but was never able to eat much of it because I was a bit of a wuss.  However, this pregnancy I’ve been adding sririachi sauce and habanero hot sauce to foods and ordering spicy thai food like crazy and I’ve been loving it!

 

I’ve also had an aversion to sweets, I totally expected it to be the opposite.  Haven’t wanted cookies or cakes or ice cream, if they are offered to me I turn it down it sounds gross.  DH and I were buying candy for a friend’s son in the grocery store and I had to leave the candy aisle because I started gagging by the sight of it all!

I had to post again. For the last 4 days, the ONLY food I have wanted to eat is onions caramelized in hot sauce mixed with pepper.

And it HAS to be followed by a banana 2 hours later!

My mom ate tons of Golden Flake hot chips when she was pregnant with me; that’s probably why I adore anything and everything spicy now (including the same hot chips- I could eat an entire bag in one sitting).

 

I’m not pregnant yet, so I haven’t had any weird cravings of my own 😉

The strangest craving I had was for a brand-new, freshly made railroad spike!   I wanted it like a lollypop. It turned out I needed iron pills, lol!

I also hated sweets. I wanted beef and salads constantly. It seems she changed me permanently, as I still want a 2nd salad instead of dessert, haha.

  I have gone through a few phases. In the first trimester, it was ordering a Pepperoni Domino’s Pan Pizza (extra cheese, light on the sauce) and soft pretzels. I had a few weeks where I had to get a snow cone every night. DH and I would actually alternate snow cone stands so they wouldn’t think we were nuts! The most recent one has been salt…especially Cheetos.

  I wish I was having some healthier cravings! That would make things a lot easier!

@keepsmiling19:  I agree.  I’ve been eating deep dish pan pizza at least once a week. I can’t figure out if its something about being pregnant and your body seems to want higher calorie foods, as in those lower calories ones aren’t going to cut it!

I just got my BFP today not even late for AF so it may just be coincidence but for the last two days I’ve been eating mushrooms non stop and pop tarts in between, topped my pop tart off with ice cream last night. DH looked at me funny when I put in my request to add pop tarts to the bowl of over cream and just laughed. Now we understand why lol

@RedBullFueled:  I have no clue! It’s something with the combination of the cheese, the dough from the pizza…I could eat it right now and I am completely not hungry. I broke the habit for awhile, but it’s back with a vengeance. I wonder if the kid is going through a growth spurt.
