So, I'm over here thinking about being pregnant one day as I am in the "waiting to ovulate" phase, and I think I am probably going to be cursed with crazy cravings!

I have always liked weird combos of food, but I just finished eating breakfast link sausage with cream cheese icing. Delicious! (Don't judge, it is amazing haha) If I wasn't waiting on ovulation, I may think I was pregnant!

So, ladies.... If you have been pregnant before... What was your weirdest craving, or what did you crave the most?

Those of you in my boat, just waiting to be blessed one day, do you have any random cravings without being pregnant? If so... Dish! I like to know I'm not alone in my craziness

( I may or may not have created this post obkeep me from eating more of it! Haha!)

Nothing really, all food aversions but food cravings weren't any different. Just ate as I regularly did. Now GRIEF cravings are out of this world. Sugar cravings skyrocket apparently and this is normal.

Peperoncini (or pepperoncini)... I would eat a ton and then pour the 'water' on salads it was so nuts!

But in general I eat weird... I will eat anything frozen. I kinda like it that way Although not even supposed to drink cold drinks right now so I am not eating frozen foods

I tend to crave everything and anything dairy, which is stuff I normally can't eat. and I loathe water...it makes me sick. at least that seems to be normal for me so far, but who knows what I will crave if I ever make it further along

With Claire I craved fruit, mostly apples and watermelon. I would buy a huge seedless watermelon and eat the whole thing in 24 hours...it is no wonder she loves watermelon

With the twins I wanted veggies...particularly baby carrots and green bell peppers. I'd slice up a green pepper and grab a bag of baby carrots, and that would be my snack.

I guess my cravings weren't all that weird, but they lasted a long time!

with my oldest I craved fruit salad mainly. Green grapes in particular. I would buy a 3 lb tub from Sam's and eat it in 1-2 days.

With my middle one, I craved anything sweet. Cookie, cake, ice cream, pie, any sugar I could get my hands on except chocolate. I am normally a chocoholic, but it gave me wicked heart burn.

With my youngest I had 2 cravings. homemade egg custard pie from my family's restaurant. And pepperoni with peanut butter (that was the weird one).

Pepperoni with peanut butter... That's awesome! I hope I'm one that craves veggies and fruit... But I'm assuming it'll be all sweets. I have to battle my love for them enough as it is!

Nothing weird for me. I craved soft serve like crazy with my twin boys... and when I found out they weren't going to make it... first thing I did was hit DQ.

I had a weird aversion though.. chocolate. tasted like dirt. Now anytime it tastes weird, I pee on something.

No weird craving really - with my first I craved cheese enchiladas - I ate them almost everyday and gained 80 lbs with that pregnancy....YIKES. With this one I'm not having many cravings yet but I am having a weird aversion...meat......any kind of meat. It tastes raw and just the thought of it makes me sick to my stomach

I feel like I eat like a 5 year old right now...peanut butter & jelly, Mac & cheese, orange juice. I just had some potato skins, but I'm already regretting it. I have foods that I just can't think about too.
