In my first pregnancy I had bad ms - but I found peppermint lollies helped. Then one day (at about 8 weeks) DH was buying some choc milk and I spied some spearmint milk - voila! I found my craving! I drank it throughout my whole pregnancy - and have never wanted it since!

Ice cubes.. (with or without a drink).
It's been my main craving for about 6 weeks (currently 38 weeks). I've been refilling the icetrays about 5 times a day, I can't get enough! I can't even go out in the car without taking a cup of ice out with me!
Also have a fondness for twisties, cheezels etc (fake orange crap basically ).
Early on I had big McDs cheeseburger cravings, though I'm not too keen on McDs normally.

I've been told that a craving for ice is because (other than an iron deficiency, because I've heard that too) of the crunch it makes - fresh fruit/vegies are generally crunchy, so the body is craving healthy, crunchy food.
Last pregnancy I had to have peanut butter toast (had to be Kraft) with chocolate milk (had to be Classic). After I had him, I had no interest in it.
This time round, I haven't had any specific cravings.

No cravings funnily enough but I love the taste of toothpaste (but I don't eat it don't worry!) & the feeling of brushing my teeth (was the same when I was pregnant with my daughter aswell). I even went to the dentist a month ago to make sure my teeth were ok (& it wasn't my body telling me my teeth/gums were bad) & :-) they were in perfect condition. Lol I guess I just am a weirdo who craves toothpaste!

Right now I am obsessed with those Lucky Snack Tubs of dry roasted nuts! Am loving the ones that contain almonds, cashews, macadamias, pistachios and soy crisps! Eating them as I type this!!

My second I also craved chocolate or anything sweet, and I am not a sweet tooth at all, but I ended up with undiagnosed gestation diabetes, so that might have been the reasoning behind that! That baby was a girl, I was so convinced about the savoury/sweet thing!
My third and fourth I didn't really have any major cravings, both boys. But this one I have had a thing for McChicken burgers for a couple of weeks in the early stages, and more recently I have been craving hot chips and gravy, I was actually dreaming about eating a big plate of hit chips smothered in gravy last night. Unfortunately I can't have them being diabetic and needing to watch my carb intake, but if I could eat them I imagine I would be as big as a house at the end of this pregnancy!
