I'm not a fast food person. I rarely, if ever, eat it. And by rarely I mean maybe - MAYBE - once or twice a year.

Since I've been pregnant? One Taco Bell soft taco, a McDonalds cheeseburger, a Wendy's cheeseburger, fries and a frosty.

Why?? Why do I want these things SO MUCH? It's like I HAVE to have them. I've never craved them before...why now??

Anyone else?

I haven't eaten fast food in just over 3 years. I thought I really wanted a Big Mac, so after much consideration, I walked in to McDonald's, smelled the place, and walked right back out. It made me want to puke so I no longer want a Big Mac. I did however eat an Arby's Roast Beef and that didnt sit to well with me so we wont be eating that again either. I also ate the potato things at Taco Bell, those were really good. Probably because od the cheese and that's all I've been craving.
Thank you Jaidynsmum!

Maybe it is because your body is telling you, you need more of something? Salt? Fat?

I'm the same! walking through the mall and I smell the KFC or McDonalds and I REALLY want it! I have indulged twice in McDonalds and once with Pizza Hut. Eeeek!

My midwife said it is the sodium. If you normally have a diet low in sodium it's your body's way of asking you for more. I try to satisfy the craving in a healthier way than fast food, but sometimes I just can't resist

I agree with PP it's your bodies way of telling you you are needing something (at least most of the time that's the case). Early on I was craving red meat and I wanted it almost raw that told me I might be needing iron so I took an iron supplement and had some steak and I was good.

Wow.. I haven't indulged a few times.. Atleast a dozen since being pregnant! We moved house over a number of weeks and our kitchen was packed up. This mean ordering food a lot, not that there isn't healthier options, but because it was made easy for me.. I did it. Uh oh! I haven't eaten any since moving in to our new house though

I wake up thinking about Mc Donalds breakfast! I mean I used to like it, but now its the first thing I think of. Glad I live a little piece away from there or id be broke.

I am loving Arby's Roast beef sandwiches, had a couple of them already, And a frosty, and a double cheeseburger from MCD(only ketchup onions) We don't eat out often at all (and i haven't ate Mcdonalds in almost 2 yrs) but between the heat and not wanting to turn the oven on, being so tired, and these crazy oh that sounds so good cravings it's def picked up. We're stopping now though..... back to our dining out budget no if ands or buts about it!!

However i currently am wanting some crinkle cut fries, with salty ketchup. Mmmm I bought some at Walmart so at least that and the oven is a whole lot better than fast food, even if not ideal.

I'm the same way.
Overall, I'm a very healthy eater.. I was VERY healthy pre-pregnancy. I was gluten free for a very long time (because my 'husband' has celiacs) and we were also vegan for awhile. I'm neither right now.. I dunno if I'm making up for lost time, or what, but I'm eating more fast food in the past month than I have in 10 years..
The grease calms my morning sickness? It's so backwards sounding, but it makes me feel better.. sigh.
(thanks for the siggy, Meganpixel!)

I've been craving fast foods too...but right now hubby is away so it's just easier to go out instead of making a meal for one. He comes home friday so i'll be more consistent on making food then.
