Pregancy Smells & cravings

What smells/ foods made you sick during pregnancy?
What did you crave the most?

For me I couldn't stand the smell of fish or the sight of mayonnaise.; and couldn't eat strawberries with my 1st. I craved lime Popsicles and warm lettuce with salt on it (like off the McDonald's sandwiches)

With my second I craved potatoes, corn, and chicken nuggets. Anything greasy made me sick and vanilla.

With my last I craved chocolate (how I knew she was a girl lol) and I could eat whatever I wanted. The smell of seafood made me sick though.

  • With my first pregnancy nothing really made me feel sick although I had morning sickness until 14 weeks pregnant. I did have a strong sense of smelling rice all the time though!
    With my second pregnancy every food made me sick fries smelt like tomatoes, I have the rice smell and couldn't prepare food without being sick, I was like this until I was 21 weeks pregnant.

    I had two daughters, funny how I was worse with one than the other. :)

  • I worked at a hospital and smell of the cafeteria made me sick. I could eat the food just fine but all the smells mixed together was too much. Also the smell of tooth paste. It didn't matter the flavor. It was hell brushing my teeth and trying not to get sick at the same time. I craved fried chicken, pizza, watermelon. and oranges. I could never get enough oranges.
