its normal...and its normal when pregnant, there is that total change of preference to what you like.

I know, I'm still trying to regain my taste for meat, cuz my baby did not like any of it! And I'm not crazy about it either, but I think together with my baby my body just couldn't handle it...

Nope. I never drank anything else but water daily, and juice once in a while. I avoid coffee and tea plus sodas like Coke because of the caffeine content (first) and then sugar content. I am used to taking my coffee with sugar and with my family history (three of my cousins have either diabetes or gestational diabetes plus my grandma has diabetes), it's a drink that I'd glad skip for sanity sake. Heck, I even avoid herbal teas, and tea infusions.

im also at my 36weeks of pregnancy...frm the first week up to yesterday i havent drink coffee even though i love coffee..i drink coffee but only half of cup just to ease the temptation. nothing much coffee just to stop the craving. i asked my doctor she says its ok to drink but a very low amount of coffee though so we are safe.
