What kind of food cravings do you have during your pregnancy? Any aversions?

Last pregnancy was lemons, burgers and hot n sour soup.

This pregnancy so far has been citrus & melon fruits and salad- haven't eaten any salad yet with this awful morning sickness. All I can handle is some melon fruit, banana, rice, bread, toast, eggs, crackers, cereal and soup. I want to enjoy yummy food again!

First trimester it was meat. Now it changes on a daily basis. I crave bologna a lot, but I never eat it or buy it.

With Lily I craved fruit and ketchup (not together)!

This time I've been craving fruit (especially berries and melons) and pizza.

I had a ton of food aversions the first trimester, mainly to any kind of meat/fish, anything strong smelling, etc.

With Jonah, I had cravings for spicy foods, chinese food, frosted mini wheats, and sweet iced tea (the real stuff, like how my grandma used to make it!) The weirdest one was probably tuna melts with peanutbutter lightly spread on one of the sides of bread. I had aversions to sushi and tomato sauce

With Evie I haven't had any strong cravings, but I have been wanting sweets.. chocolate and such. In the beginning, I craved salt. Just plain salt. We figured out it was because my BP was way low, and it's balanced out now so I don't crave salt. Now, really nothing, although it seems like I'm hungry all the time for whatever lies in my path LOL

Food cravings? no, just sleep cravings. Aversions, well, yes, I have aversions to everything. There is literally nothing that sounds good. But at the same time everything sounds like something I *should* eat that would be really satisfying.

I've had a pretty big aversion to all different foods this pregnancy. Nothing sounds appealing or appetizing.

I do enjoy fruits, caesar salads and ice.

No offense Jess, but that seriously made me gag a little! How did you even come up with that?

Shelley, I think it came about because I really like peanutbutter on toast, and I really like tuna melts, and one day they both sounded reeeeeally good so I just put them together. I didn't think it was that weird at the time, because at fancy restaurants I see items that are some kind of nut encrusted fish etc, so I thought it was normal to want nuts and fish together.... but I've since been told that it is NOT normal by just about everyone.... and honestly, since having Jonah, that has never sounded good to me again, so I guess it was just some weird "pickles and icecream" thing going on
