in one of my pregnancies, i was very fond of balut, the other 1, i was always longing for goto, and like it to be bought by one of my officemates...and in the mornings, i always feel having fever, and i was really hot that i had to go home always but, after having slept in the morning i would wake up feeling normal...don't really know why it is like that...

I ate sandwiches with pickles, cheese, and mustard on them. The funny thing is that I still think they taste good now that I'm not pregnant. Actually the weirdest thing for me is that I suddenly wanted broccoli all the time, and previous to becoming pregnant I hated broccoli. I ate so much broccoli cheese soup during my pregnancy! I still like broccoli now too, so I guess pregnancy changed my taste permanently. The only other thing I really remember crazing is sour candies. I ate many, many rolls of Shock Tarts, which are made by the same people as sweettarts but are chewy and very sour.

I didn't crave anything to be honest, i guess not everyone does :) I did find myself eating Popcorn with heaps of butter but i didn't crave it or anything it was just something i enjoyed. I did, however, lose my taste for a few things! I'm glad i didn't have cravings though, i dunno if my other half would have been around to get them for me! He was working a lot of long hours at the time so i would have had to get them myself & that wouldn't have been much fun!

a lot of stuff lol At first I wanted pickles then once I got father along I wanted sweet stuff. Snowballs, cookies, anything that wasn't spicy. For my first pregnancy I wanted hot tamales, banana splits and waffles. Best thing about being pregnant is eatting what you want and getting away with it rofl. Worse part is trying to lose it afterwards.

This is a ladies only topic. Still let me respond. I think the taste deffer from place to place. In our place raw mangoes are the exotic thing mostly in demand for preggies. Then come pickles, ice cream, masala dosa etc. etc. My two daughters are pregnent now. Strangely both of them don't ask for anything special. To keep with the tradition, I bought some raw mangoes, but they were neglected by my elder daughter. Thank you eshaan.
