This is ridiculous. During the last pregnancy, I couldn't even think of food until the last trimester, but it is my all consuming mission during this pregnancy. That's why all the threads I start are about food.

I'm in the south and boiled peanuts are a big thing around here. I've had them a couple times and never understood why people would want mushy peanuts. In the last 2 weeks, these little peanut stands have popped up. I don't know if it's peanut season here, but they've been advertising on the tv too! Suddenly, I want them every time I pass a stand. Normally, my DH is driving and he says "but you don't even LIKE them..." Today I got some and ate almost half the bag for dinner...

Anything that you don't normally like, but now you crave and love them?

I've been the same way! With all 3 of my boys I was sick and puking for 9 months. I always weighed less when I finished than when I started. This time, other than a little nausea in the beginning, I am stuffing my face constantly! I'm originally from Georgia, so I LOVE me some boiled peanuts! Fortunately though, I can't get them here in Memphis. LOL

At some of the grocery stores (an I think Walmart), they sell packages to do it at home in the microwave in the produce section. You might see if they have some...

I'm craving everything!!! I'm trying to munch on carrots and what not, but I'm going insane. I grab a bottle of water and do whatever I can to stop thinking about it!

i get random cravings but nothing too crazy...so far i've eaten much better this time than i did with tyler. I was sick with him a lot so it was all crackers/carbs and fried food. I still love fried food but i try to balance it with grilled chicken and salads when i can.

With this pregnancy the only thing I have craved is loaded baked potatoes, and that was in the very beginning now im over it, and haven't had a single craving yet....its weird. Except that really I don't really want to eat, not that im nauseas, just nothing sounds good. Or tastes good for that matter, lol my tastebuds stopped working awhile ago, and have yet to come back...

I have been crazy for food(I have trouble eating because of the HG but still crazy lol)I eat anytime my body lets me and I am eating the weirdest things lol

With my 3 girls I was so deathly ill from my Hyperemesis that I was hooked up to so many cords and couldn't even think about food, With this baby my meds are working so I am not vomiting 24/7 I can eat but this is so new to me lol
