  • Mine started at about 7 or 8 weeks with the oldest. Unless its a non food item eat whatever you like in moderation. It was the after baby cravings/appetite that was surprising for me, lol

  • mine started instantly(well before i even knew i was preggo) .. normally i love chocolate and ramen noodles, but i had zero desire for them and a month later i found out i was preggo) .. my DF doesnt like those things like i do, so he thinks its funny how his baby is clearly overpowering my own wants... also i havent eaten 'land meat' for over 15 years(just never liked it) and lately my mouth waters if i smell ribs or chicken... he said hes gonna walk in from work and i am going to be shoving chicken wings in my mouth or just straight ask him for one of his ribs here in no time... hehehe..

  • I never had actual I need it right now cravings! Sometimes i pretended I did when I wanted something so my DH would go get it! :) lol But it could start anytime.. My one sisters started before she knew she was preggo, my other sister didnt have any real cravings until she was 6 months.. just depeneds.

  • Thank you all for your comments. Im not sure if I am or not. My boyfriend and I had a condom break March 13th. I started but it was light and short. I took a home pregnancy test April 5th it told me negative but I still have a few symptoms and Im just not sure what to do..
