The only thing that I craved was orange juice. Did anyone have any really odd cravings?

Yucky....I do not like biscuits and gravy. I hate country gravy and I don't like the texture of biscuits. I better knock on wood or the next time I am pregnant I will probably crave biscuits and gravy. :o)

With my first pregnancy it was red meat...I was a vegatarian so this was a huge deal. With my second it was Thousand Island dressing, with this one, nothing real specific but my second and third are real close toghether.

So if you craved red meat but you are a vegetarian, did you actually eat meat or not? Or did you just crave it?

Isn't it interesting how you crave different things with each child? I actually wouldn't know being as I only have one child right now.

My daughter loves watermelon. I made into juice for her when she was a little younger. She loved it. I don't know why the juice companies don't make it into an organic juice.

Yummy Watermelon - This was the object of my preganancy cravings. Watermelon and more watermelon!
I craved watermelon with both of my pregnancies. I could not get enough of it. I normally like watermelon ok, but when I was pregnant I had to have it every day and several time a day!

Veggies - Vegetables
I craved vegetables, which may not seem odd to most people, but I normally hate veggies! After my daughter was born, I've gone back to hating them. While I was pregnant, I would eat carrots and celery every day with lunch and I even ordered veggies as a side when we would eat out. At least it was a healthy craving.;)

They say that you crave what your body really needs. I had a friend who didn't drink very much water and while she was pregnant she craved ice! She would crunch on ice any chance she got.

I am pregnant right now in the 2nd trimester. I haven't craved many things, just Mexican food occasionally. Unfortunately though, everytime I eat Mexican it makes me sick.
