its like a serteotype to eat pickles and ice cream while pregnant lol that still sounds gross to me. if anything, i am just much more open to try new things that i wouldnt have tried before..

the only cravings that i have had constantly is grapefruit.. how about you guys? whats are you craving? and if you have had a really weird craving? what was it??

I never had any cravings with my first, and this time the only thing I really crave now is cereal.

Interestingly enough... the only thing that I have craved so far is Taco Bell and pretty much anything with hot sauce. And really no heartburn to go with it. :D

I have always loved pickles so during this pregnancy I have continued to eat them, I can't say that I have really had many cravings...I have gestational diabetes so I can't eat sweets...I crave chocolate but thats probably because I can't eat it!

My craving was always icecream with crushed chips inside of it

yeah, I don't get that stereotype!  I've never craved anything I didn't already like or eat... I will just get fixated on one thing sometimes and want it all week, then be over it.

Sadly, I haven't craved anything, and I am 3 days till due...  I have liked eating mac-n-cheese more, but other than that, nothing.... I actually have less of an appetite... (My poor DH thinks there is something greatly wrong with me... LOL)

I usually crave certain things my body needs. Like lately I have been slightly anemic and have been craving Braunsweiger(liver sausage) and I don't even like it, but I have had it before and my body knows that it needs iron. I usually crave  something until I get it or substitute it with another food that has the same thing my body needs.  My mom though craved Pineapple and sourcream her entire pregnancy with me! I think that is weird and nasty. She never got it though cause my father wouldnt get it for her.

So far I have been craving meat, rregular milk instead of soy. not to big into the fruits and veggies this time around. I was at the beginning but not anymore.

Has anyone ever noticed gender specific cravings? If you had a boy did you crave the same foods with another boy or the same foods for two different pregnancies resulting in a girl baby?
