Ok I have been talking with a friend online who's pregnant and it got me remembering my pregnacy likes and dislikes. I always look back and find it funny how each pregnancy was different and so where the cravings so tell me what did you crave while you were pregnant? Also was there anything that just made you completely sick whe you smelled it or thought about it? Thank you ahead of time for your responses.

I craved the same things both times which was weird. I had to have Kentucky Fried Chicken- could not live without it. It's a wonder that my kids didn't come out clucking. In the morning I had to have fruit- a melon of some kind. I would eat the whole thing of whatever it was- cantaloupe, watermelon, honeydew. It had to be melon. Milk duds were another thing. Smells didn't really bother me too much unless it was eggs. They would make me barf every time when I was prego.

The first pregnancy i had a craving for KFC gravy constantly, and i gained about 60 lbs. And i also couldnt smell peanut butter or i would throw up the first few months while i had morning sickness. Too bad for me that hubby eats a LOT of peanut butter, too bad for him he'd try to kiss me after he'd eaten it! This pregnancy, i havent had any real cravings, i just always WANT junk food, but i try to refrain cause i didn't want to gain all that weight like i did last time. i've only gotten half of it off in the year and a half!

LOL!!! I know what you mean my first pregnancy I had morning sickness so bad that I literally couldn't even drink chicken broth. I remember living off of peppermints for the first three months. I ended up loving Taco Bell but pizza I would hurl. My second pregnancy I loved bar tacos. My third pregnancy I wanted nothing but cheetos. My fourth pregnancy I wanted lots of meat and nothing else and last but not least my fifth pregnancy I wanted nothing but veggies, meat made me sick. LOL!!

Nothing made me really sick when I thought about it or smelled it. The first time round I didn't really cook anything (because I didn't know how to) and survived on rice and yogurt. I craved for something at my grannie's place. At our place, we pour a little water on left over rice and have it the next day (it's a little sour then). Well, I craved that and especially the one at my grandmother's! They always had it and I flew all the way from the next state for it and guess what? They didn't have it that day!!!! and I wasn't there long enough to have it the next day! With the second one, all I wanted to do was eat and eat and eat. and fortunately I went to my mother's for my delivery and had all the spicy food that I wanted.

I loved viennese whirls and sweet and sour with all 3 of my pregnancy's and the smell of tea made me ill. I noticed that I favoured savoury foods during my last pregnancy I had a boy 14 weeks ago.

I ended up craving taco bell for my 1st , bar tacos for my 2nd , cheetos for my 3rd , steak and meat for my 4th and veggies for my 5th. I ended up with toxemia for my 3rd and 5th pregnancy which made me sick all the time. My 1st I couldn't stand the smell of pizza it had me funning for the toliet... My great aunt made me gobs when I was pregnant with my 1st and I drove from Kansas to Pennsylvania to get them. Ofcourse I made my stay there a two week stay.

When I was pregnant with my son I craved chinesse food constantly, also ice cream, which i am not a big fan of normally and the smell of cat food made me sick to my stomach and also the site or smell of ground beef was also very sickning to me. With my daughter I craved the broccoli cheese soup from Quiznos and also chocolate dipped in onion dip. And the smell of any kind of fish made me sick. We had to stop eatinng in our favorite chinesse resturant because of it.

With my first pregnancy I couldn't eat meat all all. I couldn't stand the smell of food period. All I ate the entire time i was pregnant was Cheese and pickles and fruit. My son loves all fruits and can't enough pickles and cheese. This pregnancy (I'm 32 weeks pregnant) I can eat just about everything but red meat and eggs. I haven't had many cravings other then Wink soda and licorice :)

I have not been pregnant so what i am sharing is from my friends' experiences. one friend craved fruit tarts. and even had a nightmare about it. another friend craved mars bars and so she had a ready stock of that. and another friend craved certain local food, but it was harder to get it in the middle of the night.

I could not get enough pickles. I would eat them by the jar. lol My mom used to make fun of me because I would eat green olives and drink slushes. They tasted so good together I don't know why. If I smelled eggs cooking I would get soo sick, even if I thought about eggs. It was horrible.

This is one of the best discussions. I know for me personally, each pregnancy has been different. My first, I was not able to be near coffee. The smell alone ruined my day and made me ill. I loved french fries and cheez-its. With my second.... I also loved french fries... Ketchup made me ill which is something I normally love. Oh and my car. for some reason the looks of it made me cringe... weird, I know. Now this time around.... There are few foods I can eat and nearly everything makes me ill. Smells, just the sight of foods. My comfort foods right now are green beans with nothing on them just straight from a can or oatmeal.

I love pizza with my 1st couldn't even think about it without running to the bathroom. LOL! each pregnancy had different effect . I know what you mean I had a cavalier that was blue but the one door got hit by a driver that had no insurance and we didn't have the money at the time to get it fixed never bothered me until i was in my 3rd month. Thank you for your response and have a nice day.

With my first and second I craved alot of fruits and mexican. With my third I also craved mexican and jalepenos which was weird cause I hated them. I ate them with him and now I love them. Nothing really made me to sick. I never got morning sickness with either of them. Didn't know I was pregnant with either of them till I missed my period. I guess I got lucky on that part.
