  • Only had craving during 2 pregnancies. One I craved strawberry ice cream and pizza, the other I craved chocolate milk and vlasic pickles.

  • Yikes, all that caffeine can't be good for you! My first I hated Chocolate but craved hamburgers and watermelon. My second I could not get enough pineapple (I literally ate a can of unsweetened pinapple for lunch almost every day.) Now my oldest is a vanilla person, and my youngest is a fruit fanatic.

  • With the Code Red thing. I only might have 1 a day. That's it. I know I have to limit myself. I drink more iced tea and apple juice then anything else.

  • Food..........literally......LOL
    Oddly enough the main thing was mac and cheese with peas and a soda Pepsi Clear that was around back then. I couldn't stand the smell of ground beef cooking, but when it was done.....I pigged out...LOL After DS was born......tried a Pepsi Clear and about threw up! Odd???? DS to this day LOVES mac and cheese and peas...LOL

  • With my first it was one particular type of deli turkey from walmart(I microwaved it before eating it). I would buy a pound of it and eat it in a day or two! With my second, it was Mexican food, mostly the salsa. I could eat the entire bottle myself at one sitting.

  • SAME HERE! When I was pregnant I craved Mt Dew and Ice Cream bars on a stick!! Probably not the best nutrition - so try to curb them and eat as healthy as you can ... wish I did.

  • Ice from a particular gas station (QT) or SPICY wings, could never find anything spicy enough.

  • I always had to have some kind of chocolate and a coke from mcdonalds. I actually read that if you eat a lot of chocolate when you're pregnant your baby willsmile a lot, and my little man has been smiling all the time since the day he was born :)
