In first and second tri I loved irn bru/lucozade and salt and vinegar discos but it wasn't actual cravings until I discovered the smell if dettol, like I NEEDED it iyswim

I didn't really have any cravings as such. My appetite was immense though so I did eat a lot more and wasn't as fussy... pretty much anything went, in double helpings!

Eggs and cheese! I dont eat a lot of them generally so I guess my body must just need them

Salt and vinegar chipsticks! Can't be own brand ones, has to be the blue & white striped packet,

Salt and vinegar chipsticks here too, the smiths ones. Also curry and garlic bread (not together.)

Oooh yes, garlic bread too. But it has to be really garlicky. I think really it's strong flavours I'm craving.
I've also really gone off seafood (which usually I love). Even the thought of a prawn turns my stomach at the moment, hoping it passes as it's a main part of my diet!

oh iv gone off chicken & fish big time

I always want curry these days but can rarely manage it. This week I’ve latched on to one type of cereal and I’m really enjoying that, but I haven’t had a crazy NEED for anything tbh.
I’ve actually gone off most food. It’s a struggle to eat 3 meals a day. I still worry I’m going to throw up if I try and eat a plate full of food.

KFC, and pickled beetroot (not together)
I'd eat the beetroot out of the jar, like it was a packet of crisps. My thumb and finger were permanently pink/purple.
ETA, I had the same cravings with both of my boys.

I went through phases. Lemonade, jelly sweets, citrusy drinks, non alcoholic Pimms. Also chocolate milk, Sainsburys Belgian chocolate to be precise and it had to be out of my purple Ikea glass with a straw!
I also ate bacon, after being vegetarian for 13 years *hangs head in shame*

At 8 weeks I am probably not far enough along for proper cravings, but at the moment I am loving tinned mandarins! Have to have a small bowlful every evening!

Not really cravings really, but certain things have been immensely satisfying. Number 1 is chocolate milk, followed by beans on toast. Oh, and mango :)
12/11/2013 at 19:53
I never had cravings either time, but there was loads things i went off of and just couldnt bear the sight or smell of.

I've had none. I've eaten less while pregnant than i did before. I have prob one day a fortnight where I don't stop eating but my portion sizes have reduced.
Pints and pints of full fat milk!
