    Default Pregnant and sniffing petrol!

    The last few days I have had the BIGGEST craving for the smell of petrol and engine oil/fumes lol clearly I cannot and would not satisfy this craving but oh man how I'd love to! Haha what strange pregnancy cravings have you had?

    A girl I used to work with had a massive craving for sand. She went out somewhere and had to physically hold herself back from eating the sand which people had stubbed their cigarettes out in from ashtrays. She ended up buying a bag of clean sand ad eating it. Eek!

    Yep, petrol fumes here too! With all 3 pregnancies. Dad has this tin of pink industrial hand soap, and I used to love the smell of that too, actually made my mouth water. Oh no, I'm not weird at all...

    My mother had an overwhelming urge/cravings for Walls.. She would pick at them and eat bits of the wall... When she was pregnant with me she was doing chalk drawings with my sister and she said from then on it was chalk all the time....
    I wonder if her body was craving the calcium?
    Mum never consumed dairy when she was pregnant as it gave her MS through out her whole pregnancy..

    I only had cravings for vinegar! I would soak pieces of bread in vinegar.. Dip my fruit and veg in vinegar.. Buy salt and vinegar chips and spray them with extra vinegar, yes I had some vinegar in a spray bottle
    And the worst that DH use to cringe at was Banana and tomatoes soaked in vinegar.. The thought of eating it now makes me feel sick! But at the time I thought I have found the most amazing snack lol

    Same!!! I would have dessert spoons of balsamic. Pickled onions and battered fish soaked in vinegar...
    Oh god it was amazing.
    Also half an avocado with a pool of vinegar in the middle..
    Salt and vinegar chips! To.die.for.
