  • Yes but usually it is food where they are not around here. Such as ChickfilA or Chilis. It only seems that I want certain foods if I can not have it.

  • I get random cravings all the time. Unfortunately, it's usually for the bad stuff. Like chicken strips!! Yummm...

  • I always have weird, strong cravings. My favorite part of pregnancy was the fact that my cravings did not seem so strange!

  • Yep. Lately I've been craving red meat - hamburgers, steaks, all sorts of stuff. I try to indulge my cravings, because generally if you are having a craving, it means your body is actually wanting some nutrient in whatever it is you crave.

  • I never had much for cravings during any of my pregnancies. I get cravings while NOT pregnant, really bad ones! Like WomanWitty, I've also heard that cravings are your body's way of telling you you're deficient in something that the craved food contains - so unless my cravings are for crap, I give in!

  • My kids are adults and I still get powerful cravings. I chalk it up to my body wanting or needing some nutrient Im lacking in my diet for why I crave anything.
