What was one of your strangest cravings during pregnancy?

I know for me personally I crave baking soda. And sometimes I crave ice cream and bananas mixed.

  • Baking soda! Wow, that's one I've never heard before.

    For me it was lemon juice concentrate right out of the bottle-at 2AM.

  • Coffee grounds. With my first I would literally stick my finger in the can and lick it off. THankfully nothing too strange this time around.

  • I put vinegar or mustard on everything. It got a little ridiculous after awhile. Although I did discover that tuna fish with mustard is delicious and I actually still eat it that way.

  • A woman who used to work with my mom craved dirt. My mom said she would come to work every morning with a little styromfoam cup filled with dirt and plastic spoon and leave it sitting out on her desk and eat from all day long. Mom said it was really hard to watch, and all the other girl in her office were really grossed out by it.

  • No, Timelessglass, You're not the only one. I remember reading somewhere about pregnant women and sour things, But I can't remember where or exactly what the article was about.
