My major craving in both pregnancies has been cheese. I never identified it as a craving until I noticed the grocery cart one day. It was filled with all different kinds of cheese (pizza, sliced cheese, blocks of cheese, cheese filled pasta - just about any form of cheese I could find). The funny thing about it is that I'm normally lactose intolerant, but somehow can tolerate more while pregnant. I just assume it's my body telling me I need more calcium and indulge - I know my cheese loving days are over once the baby is born...

Oh, and frozen Yodels. Although, I try to indulge that one only occassionally :)

For my first pregnancy I was all about vinegar-- vinegar fries, pickles by the jarful... fish sticks... you name it.

Now it seems my food of choice is salad. That's all I'm really truly interested it. Give me a nice big salad with lots of veggies and just a bit of Ranch dressing and I am in Food Heaven. Mmmmm food... :)

Lol this is sooo funny! I love oranges right now, and of course steak....I think this is cuz our body in a way is telling us that it needs the things these items provide. In the begginning I craved artichoke dip from outback steak house, but I ate so much it makes me wanna puke just looking at it :) lol Funny

Hi Kelly,

I drink a lot of water and I eat a lot of granny smith apples. An apple a day is supposed to keep the doctor away, after all. [;)] Although I do admit to having the odd slice of pizza and potato chip. [:0] Please forgive me, baby. [:)]

I've had an odd craving for things with vinegar in it...like cole-slaw with a vinegar base instead of mayo--and cucumbers soaked in vinegar..weird huh? My husband just laughs because typically this isn't like me. Earlier it was orange juice.

LOL - I know I'm preggo because I'm reading all these things going "Oh...yeah... THAT would taste awesome!!!" including the coke icee. [:D]

Well, I'm glad its not just me. I thought I was supposed to be craving ice cream and chocolate and that kind of stuff! Instead, I'm having days where I'm *dreaming* about green beans like I used to *dream* about chocolate LOL!

Early on it was oranges, now it is hot carrots from any Mexican restaurant and anything spicy. Last time it was Coke Icee's at any given time of the day! I couldn't eat ANY meat with my son. Luckily I don't have that problem this time around.

Oranges and stawberry yogurt now. I, too, had the steak craving earlier for about a month and a half ... thankfully my parents indulged that craving for me and kept my freezer full till it subsided. And, oddly grits.
