View Full Version : Cravings
Thought it would be interesting/fun to see what all the mums out there craved or are craving whilst pregnant :p
I will start the ball rolling:
DS - Lemon Juice
DD1 - Nachos, smoked salmon
DD2 - Greek Salad (had to be greek)
Does anyone know the science behind why pregnant women crave certain things :confused:
Mine was BBQ chop fat. It had to be BBQed and had to be that vein of fat you get on lamb chops. Dh BBQed many a chop when I was pregnant with Harry.
Karena I got to say that sounds really gross :D But each to their own. ;)
I agree it does sound gross but when you have those cravings nothing else matters. :D
I craved ice. I'd eat a whole packet (like 50!) of those skinny tube icypoles in about 3 days. :p Even after I had Eloise, the craving was still there! The nursing station at the hospital had one of those crushed ice machines and I'd sit up in bed eating crushed ice with a spoon like icecream!!

I couldn't stand the smell or taste of any other meat besides chicken. My cravings were for ice cold watermelon and ice coffee, I don't even like or drink coffee.
with DD1 it was maccas chips dipped in frozen soft serve yoghurt (maybe I was trying to be good while being bad LOL)
DD2 was FRESH FRESH bread with cheese and lettuce,
DD3 absolutly nothing was too sick
DS1 hmmmm i can't really remember
DS2 chocolate.. which wasn't good considering I had Gestational Diabetes
I have cravings(nothing too major though)for nachos and raspberry and cola slurpies. This book that I have read..Natural way to better babies (Franchesca Nash) refers to cravings as us lacking a certain nutrient/vitamin depending on the food that you are craving...and that instead of eating the food that you crave, I should be checking what the food contains and referring it back to the book to see what vitamin/nutrient I am lacking....I think that this could be somewhat true...however feel that the odd binge is not going to hurt me too much!
Bec & Peanut
I had two cravings while pregnant with Lena, Strawberries and Cream Sarah Lea Icecream and chicken burgers with mayo...
When I was pregnant I craved ice really badly. Like I said on the post about morning sickness, I would eat trays and trays of ice! If they didn't freeze quick enough I would eat them half frozen, which I liked just as much! My family and friends thought I was really strange. All they could hear when they visited was me crunching!
I also craved bacon, banana and cheese toasted sandwiches! Sounds strange but they are really nice!
When I was pregnant with Lachlan I craved any junk food - esp when feeling sick - like as if I had a hangover and needed greasy food!
The big killer was fried onion flavoured 2 min noodles - and not all supermarkets stock this flavour so it was hard to get and when I saw it I'd buy heaps of packets!! Also this place near my work sold really thick toast with crunchy peanut butter mmmmm greasy.
