I love cheese danish, and buy them every so often. However, one thing I remember is that when I was pregnant..I couldn't stand them..I had some and put them in the freezer I couldn't even look at them..Did you have any food aversions while you were pregnant.or for you men did your wife or partner have any?

I couldn't eat or fry an egg. Also would almost get physically ill when cooking venison or steaks. When I was pregnant for my twins, I couldn't be in the same room when chicken was being prepared. Loved eating chicken, but gagged at the smell of it being cooked. Couldn't stand to look at the grease it left behind either. LOL.

@snowy22315 I like them all now. The smell of them cooking was terrible though.

I don't like Papaya that much, and when I got pregnant. I ate almost everyday, specially with soy sauce, vinegar in it.

I don't remember craving anything in particular, but I really remember being turned off to cheese danish for some odd reason. I did eat cheerios alot.

I could not stand the smell of coffee brewing.

I don't think they were really recommending coffee much during that time..but as I said, since I was generally nauseous I wouldn't have been drinking it much anyway.

@snowy22315 My husband would brew it, but it smelled so bad, I did not drink it. That was 32 years ago, and I do think I was not cautioned about coffee-drinking. Things sure have changed.

@Corbin5. I never heard of a that but it is sort of good not to have caffeine during pregnancy.

I know when I was pregnant with Julian I wanted nothing to do with taco's and I usually like them. I didn't have anything that bothered me with Josiah.

It seems like the egg thing is common.

What a great topic. Yes, when I was pregnant it was more what I didn't want! I love coffee however I couldn't believe the day I woke up and I had such an aversion to the odor, taste etc. Funny you mention cheese danishes. Yum yum! My favorite. Goes to show how pregnancy changes so many things. Take care, snowy. Thanks for introducing an interesting topic. ??

Yes, well I have cheese danish now, so that triggered a memory. I was generally slightly nauesous during my first trimester..I don't think I was drinking much coffee either.

I usually eat apples. But during pregnancy i used to throw up everytime i had one. It continued after pregnancy also and i dont eat apples anymore. And usually I preferred chicken over meat but during pregnancy it was the opposite.

I love fried chicken, but the thought of it turned my stomach when I was pregnant.
