I wouldn't call it craving because I don't necessarily want to eat it- more like I have to eat and if I have to this is how I want it (is that craving? I always think of craving more as- I *have* to have x, y or z and I have to have it now). I just ate a sandwich drenched in mustard at 1 am because I can't sleep and washed it down with OJ. Not too bad but- I don't really drink juice ever. I also am not a fan of sandwiches. I drink juice all day every day- I think that's why I'm gaining so much weight!! Anyone else have weird eating habits right now?

I don't remember this kind of eating with the girls at all so I wonder if it's a boy thing...

I don't know if it's a boy thing. I didn't eat like that with any of my 3.

I tried basing cravings or food I ate off the gender of the baby before I knew, I always told myself "Well it wasn't like this before!" and I ended up with 3 boys haha.

No real weird cravings, but I'm having a stereotypical craving, pickles. But I've always loved pickles!

I was like that to a certain extent in the first trimester but it eased off thank goodness! I was starving every couple of hours and had to have certain things. So hard to eat healthy when you body is saying "donut....now!!!!!".

when i need to eat i must eat NOW. I start to feel very very sick if i dont. The issue is every thing sounds gross except X or Y. Then i gotta find some way to get those things and those things arent always good for me but I dont care. Being so sick for months I just dont care... Ill eat what I want and think about the massive amount I have gained later

I have been craving pop. I never rarely drink pop, but DH drinks tons so we have lots in the house. Sprite is just so dam good right now lol I also drink lots and lots of milk but that is not new, just on over drive right now. I am constantly feeling dehydrated so I am dirnking lots of everything

I think I'm going to be ginormous if the juice craving or whatever doesn't go away!! But, I'm just happy that I feel better most days- this is the first week I've had more good days than bad but if I don't eat enough...man and last night was annoying. I don't *want* to eat so much but I don't feel like I have a choice- it's eat whatever I can stand or deal with heartburn (it is the worst when my stomach is empty). 4 1/2 more months...

With both pregnancies I have major food aversions, no real cravings here.

I'm always hungry! Yesterday I ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich because I was craving one for dinner and I hate pb& j. I had to make sure all snacks were healthy here because I'm eating so much. I crave fast food when I'm pregnant which isn't something I normally eat.

I think spaghetti is the only weird craving I've had. I've always been a non-stop eater and I love trying new weird stuff. But I've never been a fan of spaghetti and now I think about it regularly.
