Cravings!!!

I stole this from Sept board- I thought it was interesting that so many people mentioned eating carrots/veggies with ranch and I seem to have been wanting to eat that a lot lately-

Whats everyone else craving??

I feel like it's not so much I'm CRAVING things- its more what I can tolerate- NOTHING sounds appealing, frozen yogurt does at times, but otherwise I always feel kind of full and not in the mood- yet I still pig out.. which is dumb...

I feel like I just keep trying to eat everythign hoping something will work..

Yesterday banana bread sounded REALLY good so I made a loaf and cant stop eating it- wish I would of made the healthy version.

When i found out I was PG I went shopping for healthy stuff- and the only thing that really sounded good was graham crackers and PB- which I NEVER eat- and didnt get it... then I was reading my old journal that I had when I was pg with DS and it said how I craved PB and graham.. was kinda cute!!

Smoothies sound good, and grapes, and banana bread... and thats about it!!!

I crave anything that someone else makes for me or a least anything I don't have to cook!

Bagels with cream cheese. I love them but don't usually eat them bc there just solo bad for you. I had one a week or so ago and now I'm hooked!

I've been eating like a pig and we're on vacation this week so it's been really bad.

I crave tater tots, french fries, blueberries, candy, and lime infused water. I'm having sushi tonight. I always crave sushi, but of course eat it on a very limited basis during pregnancy.

I've gone from craving cheesies and pringles to craving fruit, veggies and dairy. Eating salads a lot (I never eat salad), watermelon, grapes, yogurt, etc. Pretty much anything wet and/or crunchy lol. And fries, I'll have just a giant plate of fries for supper.

I'm right there with you! Today I could have killed for a burger and fries from Five Guys. I'm trying to reel it in, but man, it's hard! *sigh*

I've been eating carrots and dip a lot too - and I rarely eat that. I did however learn about using plain greek yogurt and mixing in part of a packet of dry ranch mix. MUCH healthier version of ranch dip and it tastes delish!

One craving I had was a cream filled donut. We rarely if ever get donuts but I HAD to have one the other night. YUUUUM!

I can always go for junk food but I'm trying really, really hard to limit it and eat healthier food. Oooh...I now I'm craving a warm tortilla with pb and honey. Off I go. Smile

Thats SOOO Funny.. I've never been to five guys and suggested it to Kevin tonight- we ended up across the street @ Nipps- like a homestyle burger place with fries and fry sauce and I got a strawberry milkshake- Hey- at least I got a "garden" burger right?!?! hahaha.

Funny about the salad- I usualyl LOOOoOVE salad, and bought of punch of pre-packaged ones and now the thought of them make me want to throw up.

Whats really good is haagen daz raspberry sorbet's in the mini containers- they're like 100 or 110 calories and really fruity and frozen and yummy - a nice treat without fat or too many calories.

I have way more aversions than cravings. I cant eat meat it tastes like metal, yuck. And pizza is disgusting to me too which isnt normal but I did have this aversion with my first too. Even if something looks good it doesnt usually taste good. I am able to eat more than I was though which is good. I am loving french fries lol that is something I can always eat! I had banana bread too (I bought it tho Im lazy) and it was good too. Most sweet things turn my stomach but I liked that.

I would love a big juicy cheese burger too. But I like them rare, so that's out the window :O(

Andrea - What do you order when you get sushi? Last time I would order veggie rolls and crab since it's cooked. My SIL mentioned something about cross contamination when she was preggo and didn't eat it at all. I had no problems last time and I've been on the fence this time. I've know plenty of ladies who have eaten cooked or veggie sushi while pregnant with no issues. So I'm leaning towards doing it again. Just curious what you like to eat??

Well, after a lot of reading, I opted to eat my normal sushi, uncooked and everything. We went to a very nice sushi place that I trust. However, I don't know if I'll have it again for a while because it ended up not tasting that awesome to me. The risk is small, but I'm not willing to take it unless it's a true craving. I did avoid roe and larger predator fish because of the high mercury content.

Too funny you say that about steak - - before my 1st pregnancy I hardly ever eat any red meat, but while pregnant I couldn't get enough of it. Now (or prior to getting prego this time) I still eat it whenever.

This time I'm not really craving anything, however, I'm hungry a lot - - nauseous at the same time - - my body is so confused.
