So what are the cravings these days?

After 4 years of avoiding ranch dressing like the plague, I've gone through almost half a bottle in about 3-4 days. I LOVE carrots and broccoli in ranch dressing these days.

Chips and queso. It was getting expensive to support my queso habit through Moe's. I found Tostitos makes a Monterrey Jack queso that tastes a lot like the stuff from Moe's.

Other than those two, it changes from day to day.

The only cravings I have ever had were crunchy ice and...strangely...THE SMELL FROM THE CAR AIR CONDITIONER!!!!!!

That was last pregnancy, though.

This pregnancy, no real cravings yet. But the foods I am liking vs. not liking? I am loving junk food. It is BAD. Things like McGriddles and Bagel Bites. I am absolutely floored at my lack of weight gain.

Foods I really don't like: protein. LOL I am going to have to start to drink smoothies with protein powder or something. I have got to up my intake.

That's a new one! Pregnancy causes some strange things

Cherries. OMG. I can't get enough. And doritos or cheetos. My DS set his little bowl down next to me and suddenly, they're all gone! What in the world happened to them? (I ask, as I just cleaned the cheesy goodness off my fingers)...

I'd love a BK croissanwich with egg, cheese and sausage, but we're never in town in the morning, thank God.

I guess my cravings change with time, though...

I am not craving much at all. In fact, I still don't have a great appetite and most things I would normally like I don't want. Protein is the last thing I want so I am trying to eat PB and nuts and some chicken but I really don't want it at all.

The only thing I'm craving is Pizza Hut pizza. Unfortunately, we don't have a Pizza Hut in town so I've been going to Target at least once a week to get one of their personal pan pizzas. Also ice cream and candy.

I'm not loving red meat right now. I can't even think about steak right now and it used to be my favorite. I'm also shying away from spicy food.

My only craving is french fries, and plain chips. I guess I crave potato products but of course I'm craving the unhealthy junk!

Rice w/ either butter and salt or sweet & sour sauce, and Ruffles cheddar sour cream potato chips. Everything else is a struggle to eat still... I force myself to eat though.

Not craving anything in particular, but anything other people mention or post pics of, I immediately want.

So pretty much everything you all just mentioned. Haha!

No odd cravings really. I just only really want bagels and cream cheese--which is something I never eat. I guess that's odd for me, but that's about it. Meat is not my favorite either which is also weird for me. I usually eat a ton of it.

depends on the minute . I crave all kinds of things from fruit (banana's and apples with caramel dip) to chips and salsa, to macaroni with tomatoes. It just depends really. Lately I have been wanting a pretzel with cheese from Aunt Annies...it is over an hour drive to get one though. My cravings depend on the minute seriously.

I still do not crave a whole lot and most proteins are still gross to me. Last week I wanted tomatoes on everything. I have also been wanting to make chicken buffalo dip. I do like anything potato and vinegary things.

Everything! My husband was trying to be sweet and get dinner, so I did not have to cook. But I could not decide between hot wings, fried chicken, a cheeseburger or Chinese food. I wanted them all. I seem to go for spicy foods a lot more than normal, too. I can't eat anything sweet or I get sick.

Kraft dinner... but baked with extra cheese.. yum yum mac and cheese.

and hotdogs that craving is somewhat pissing me off because im really trying not to eat any because of the nitrates in them.

lily26 ,I know what you mean about the hotdogs. I craved them like all the time with my son and I was trying to avoid them for the same reason. I also craved bacon with him. Pure torture not giving in. I caved one time.

I have had one hotdog this pregnancy, but did not enjoy it ,lol.
