Did you know you're "not supposed" to eat any soft serve ice cream or yogurt during pregnancy? Apparently the machines harbor the bacteria that lunch meat also harbors.. And while you can heat the lunch meat to kill listeria, you can't microwave ice cream lol. I wasn't too happy about that.


I haven't really been craving anything but sometimes I just WANT food and it tastes better than usual. The other day I sent my husband to the store for Pringles. I haven't had those since I was a kid lol.

Really? I didn't know that. I think I've only had a couple cones, but from kind of a sketchy corner store. Guess I'll have to stay away from that! Though I have to admit... I've had Subway quite a few times. It's just so darn good. No more of either I guess! Poop.

I'm having a hard time eating much though. The thought of food makes me... "ugh"
Have you every tried cubing watermelon and freezing it??? It's REALLY good And now I want frozen watermelon!

This morning I think I had my first craving... peanut butter crackers, the prepackaged ones from the grocery They sounded so good and it's all I could think about!

But, I generally crave anything fresh! Salad, fruit, meat (cooked, obviously, )

I'm pretty skeptical of this info! I've eaten my fair share of deli meats, not heated, and soft server ice cream in 4 pregnancies I mean, I'm sure there are some kinds of bacteria and stuff in those things, but I think if the place you are getting them from are taking proper sanitary precautions, I don't think it's an issue.

Listeria is very rare so you're going to find conflicting info. Here's the deal- you have less than a 1% chance of getting it from anything but if you do get it it's deadly to the baby. That said, I crave deli turkey and I eat it...not heated up. You can also get listeria from produce and a number of other places (raw dairy, soft cheeses)...basically you can't eat if you try to follow every single precaution but it is a personal choice that you should discuss with your doctor (most doctors will actually probably kind of brush it off these days). I do admit that I feel guilty whenever I eat deli meat and I cancelled our raw milk (though that was mostly due to nausea .

Oh and mostly no real cravings. But, I want what I want when I want it and usually it's bad for me. So much for my mostly organic diet...lol

We've been trying to pinpoint what my cravings are. But have given up and realized that they change EVERY DAY.
Right now, I would like cottage and cantaloupe or a loaded baked potato.

Generally I want fairly healthy things. Fruit and veggies have been at the top of my list lately. And parfaits. Ohhh I love parfaits.

Good to know you've woken up in the middle of the night nauseous and craving foods, I thought I was crazy because that's never happened to me before. The cravings I had actually led me and my fiancé to believe we were pregnant because I used to HATE french fried and now I crave them ALL THE TIME! Also-pickles and salty foods. I used to hate salty food, but now I can't get enough of them.

Food aversions I have is cheese, which is also strange because I used to love cheese!
