I wouldn't say odd cravings.... But I can't get enough Mexican food. Tacos, enchiladas, fajitas. When we make them at home we use ground turkey or chicken instead of beef.
Also Chinese food! Yum!
I'm not really craving meat unless its in a ground form (like above) and cheeseburgers! I used to always have a grilled chicken sandwich for lunch, but it doesn't really appeal to me right now.

I've also been craving cheese, which is difficult because I'm paranoid about eating one of the 'forbidden' cheeses lol.

I'm not eating this unhealthy stuff all the time, I promise lol!

I just had mexican food a couple days ago, sooooo delicious! I can't get enough of it. Fried foods have been sounding great lately, specifically fries w/fry sauce.

Today i'm majorly craving pizza, the really greasy kind. Pizza hut is having a good deal right now so i'll probably have DH bring some home tonight. I'm so bad! Hopefully it won't make me sick. Last night i randomly threw up and i'm not sure if its because of what i ate or not..

Hang in there Stephanie!! I can imagine how difficult it must be to stop but you can do it!

I have the best DH lol. Tonight is my late shift, and I called him to let him know I was going to stop home for dinner (since I ate the tacos I brought already lol). He made cheeseburgers AND Mac-n-cheese! OMG it was SOOOO good! I don't think I've ever enjoyed cheese as much as I have been lately! Haha I even brought more Mac-n-cheese back to work with me, yum!

Nothing weird and mine always changes. Last night I made hubby go get a bagel with cream cheese and salty chips. But that doesn't mean I wanted it today.

My cravings vary from day to day, really. Sometimes eating what I crave makes me sicker, sometimes it settles my stomach and I get sooooo sleepy afterwards. Yesterday, I was craving gummy worms and those orange candy slices. Not today though. I've been craving a grilled cheese sandwich dipped in ketchup off and on for about a week but I haven't given it a try yet. I've always loved grilled cheese dipped in ketchup though.

Saltines haven't helped with morning sickness but pretzels have. I haven't been checking the sodium on stuff lately, which I'm supposed to do. As bad as I've been feeling I'm just so happy when I can finally eat something and hold it down!

My cravings come and go.

Most common:
Cheese! ZOMG CHEESE! I could eat a whole brick of cheese.
Pizza (see cheese craving above)
Tacos/greasy taco meat

One night it was peanuts. Another night I laid awake for hours thinking about my mother-in-law's meat stew...how it tastes, how it looks, how I could get some, what time I could call her in the morning.... Tonight I had to get up at 4 am and make an egg and spinach omelette and scarf down two grapefruit.

Most of my cravings are pretty unhealthy though. I NEVER ate dairy before I got pregnant. I insisted on getting my calcium from leafy green sources. Now I salivate for cheese (and I don't deny myself).

I think morning (ahem! all day) sickness makes salad pretty unappetizing. I started getting more attracted to food that would be easier to regurgitate. :/

Now that m/s is subsiding, cravings seem to be more healthy (I still want tacos though.)

Interesting that so many people crave cheese. That's been one of my favorite things, too! Usually not just cheese alone, but more like cheesy foods.

My cravings also vary day to day, but have included:

Pizza (especially deep dish pizza advertised on TV)
Red Lobster's cheese biscuits (also because I saw them on TV)
Mashed potatoes
Baked potatoes
Salad (but only from one particular restaurant -- it's basically just lettuce, tomato, onions, and...you guessed it...cheese!)
PB&J sandwiches
Fig Newtons
Pretzels with a glass of milk

I wish I could crave healthy things more often!

I've also had adversions to very sweet things like candy, chocolate, soda, and my prenatal gummy vitamins.
