Cravings... one tell tale sign of pregnancy, when you were pregnant specifically during your 1st trimester, do you remember the type of food that you always wanted to eat and couldnt last a day without eating one? i really dont know what was mine because i was already in my 3rd trimester when i discovered i was pregnant- but during those times- i loved eating seedless grapes! lots of them! i can finish 1 kilogram of it in just an hour... so what about u?

i had the worst pregnancy i believe...for I did'nt crave for anything. During the 1st trimester i was having morning sickness so everything that i put in my mouth I just throw it all up so I did'nt like to eat much then. My family would have to force me to eat and I would always cry while eating and even the sight of food makes me sick. I thought it was gonna get better after I passed the 1st trimester, but it did'nt. The morning sickness went away but I still did'nt have appetite so I always have to force myself to eat. I hated food then, eating was never such a task until I got pregnant. I was so jealous of other pregnant women who have big appetite. The kind of pregnancy I had is a little traumatic to me that's why I don't want to get pregnant again.:(

Aww.. thats too bad.. but please dont feel too bad enough for you not to want another pregnancy again.. i guess your craving was- no to crave for food..i didnt get my cravings until i reached my 3rd trimester, during my 1st and 2nd tri-at those times, i wasnt aware that i was pregnant... i didnt eat much because i was just depressed and i have no appetite too- and i can seem to finish a plate of food- i just eat 1 spoonful then im done with the food...if i take another bite- i feel like throwing it up- but i wasnt really aware i was already pregnant back then.. so when i did find out- i made sure i eated properly- even if my appetite isnt really there yet- i try to eat for the baby inside of me that i have deprived of for the past 6 months.. =( i just hope that your baby was healthy still when she was born though.. was she/he?

yeah, thank goodness she's fine and healthy. But she was only 5.3 lbs when she came out. But it wasn't alarming, the doctor said that she wasn't malnourish at all. I don't know about having another baby though, it was tough for me, i'll have to really think about it.

In my first pregnancy, I ate olives by the pound! I have no idea why I didnĀ“t get sick. :) Strawberries with cream were another big craving that I had. With this pregnancy, I have been craving tuna fish, which I hate! It is so gross to eat something that gives you such satisfaction at the same time as it makes you gag on the smell!

I wanted any and all fruit! I especially ate bananas and strawberries. I also loved those little mini donuts that come in those little packs of six. Chocolate or powder it didn't matter to me. I tried not to eat those too much though! lol. So I ate losts of fruit.

when i was pregnant with my daughter, i usually crave for fried chicken and ice cream. i also love to eat spaghetti. i would practically force my husband to go to the nearest fastfood chain and order my fried chicken and spaghetti. but, i don't like the smell of burgers then because it causes me nausea.

I craved different foods with each of my pregnancies. With my first it was cranberry juice, sweet potatoes and reese's peanut butter cups, not at the same time! With my daughter it was fried clams and cole slaw, together. My youngest it was I craved beef and mushrooms and the reese's again. So far this time the cravings haven't kicked in, but I am only 8.5 weeks now.

I mostly craved potatoes, french fries, baked potatoes with cheese, sour cream and don't forget the salt. I also want fresh veggies and fruits, so I made a lot of smoothies. Milk Shakes and Ice Cream where another favorite along with salty potato chips!

With my first pregnancy I liked fruit juice and lemonade mixed together to drink and to eat I liked peaches and yogurt. I'm not sure these were really cravings though, or just the only foods that didn't make me feel sick! At the end of the pregnancy I craved potatoes, I liked chips, fried potatoes and mash all the time. I also liked eating watercress. With my second preganancy I don't really remember any cravings although I'm sure I had them. I remember I liked spinach for a time but I don't really think it was a craving.

First, I just have to ask... how did you not know you were pregnant until your 3rd trimester? Even during the beginning of my second I had a huge baby belly. Either way lol.. I craved lots of things. Mostly bad thinks like chocolate cake and candy. And ice, I loved ice. But now I know that's a sign of anemia, and turns out I was!
