Anyone having cravings or aversions?
I want fruit, icy cold drinks and icypoles, but stomach greasy food like hot chips better I have aversions to sinks, toilets, plugs (so weird) and meat

Craving lots of things- watermelon, ice blocks, cheeseburgers

I'm not pregnant, but when I was, I liked the smell of spray and wipe(!!!). Hated broccoli(love it normally) and loved the smell of white wine(never drink normally lol). Never HAD the wine, but I'd stand and sniff my Sil's and MiL's at their houses lol.

I have gone off gravy and broccoli. I have cravings for chips and potato cakes - unfortunately no longer can satisfy due to gestational diabetes
I have a strange liking of the smell of my cats dry biscuits - almost to the point where I want to grab a few and munch on them (though I haven't...yet)

I still can't eat meat, mince is the worst - I dry heave when I think about eating it *shudder* no matter what form it is in.
I LOVE all fruits at the moment, I got some watermelon in the fridge, I should cut that up and have some soon. Been loving mangoes but stopped that for a bit as they are still a bit expensive and it does add up.
I also LOVE LOVE nice smelling things like purfume, air freshners and candles. I have been obessed that my house stinks so I have been buying candles and air freshners to make my house smell pretty. I know I am crazy
Other adversions - Can't serve the dogs their dinner or even see them being served dinner so DH will get the dog food tins out and divvy it up into their bowls and serve them outside and lock the door so I don't have to see/smell it. And this has to be done AFTER I have finished eating and have left the room otherwise I can't eat my dinner anymore and will often end up vomiting.
There is probably more gross things that I can't stand but for the life of me I can't think of anything else right now.

Massive aversion to chicken - was all meat for awhile but bacon and seafood seem to be coming good... I only started eating bacon when I was pregnant with DS, lol - now I'm addicted to it.
Instead i'm craving mexican beans and felafel kebabs for my protein

I've gotten a bit more of my appetiate back. I can stomach some fruit (mostly grapes, berries and watermelon), loving beans, zuccini, tomatoes, beetroot and grated carrot and mushrooms. All other veggies I am not a huge fan of at the moment. Have gone back to liking the meat I did before (no lamb, pork, or steak but will eat chicken, fish, beef in a stirfry mince of any sort and roo), pasta (any), loving juice as well.
I have never been a wine drinker BUT I was really craving a glass when my SIL was drinking one the other day

Hoping to go to the markets this weekend and pick out some fresh fruit and veggies, give them a go.
I have gone off of all foods except for carbs: toast for breakfast, toast for lunch and rice for dinner. I recently started eating mashed potato and I can stomach frozen peas and corn.
Im very bored with my diet and WANT to have fruit and veggies but I get it, go to take a bite and just gag.
I cannot do meat and unfortunately, it means DH has been having frozen meals because I cant even be in the house when its cooking. I tried to do the groceries the other day and get some meat for DH and I couldn’t even look at it. Blerh!
I am with you starfire with the dog food, it’s the worst of them all!
But the smelling of perfume, air freshners and candles is in the same basket as dog food for me hahah
I havent worn perfume in over 7 weeks and I avoid getting in the lift with anyone in the morning just incase they have perfume on.
Before finding out I was pregnant, I had cravings for Chilli. It had to be on EVERYTHING

Oh dear, I'm craving passion pop... just had a lemonade to try to quell the craving and it seems to have helped for now.
I haven't drank it in years! So weird. I don't drink during pregnancy so hope I don't get that craving again
Posted 11 November 2012 - 10:09 PM
I've craved wine too! Sparkling juice will have to do haha. Oh and I love milo and chocolate milk and today all I want is egg salad sandwiches. The meat aversions continues and the bin makes me heave. Even just the sight of it. I am loving fruit too, but I think that's a Summer thing. Overall much healthier cravings then I had with Leo, all I wanted was hot chips and gravy, Coke and hot jam doughtnuts when I was pregnant with him
Posted 12 November 2012 - 01:29 PM
Greasy food is still a winner here!
I'm off all meat except for chicken, and am craving sugar something crazy - icy poles are a big hit.
Need to up my veggie consumption.
Posted 12 November 2012 - 04:17 PM
Orange juice has been a big thing for me the last few weeks, the fresh type with lots of pulp in it, though it is giving me wicked heartburn Am also loving hot chips with chicken salt or peri peri salt from nandos. And sweets - cakes, lollies, chocolates.
Am off hot espresso based coffee's, I really want to drink a cappuccino or latte, but when I get close my stomach just rolls. I can drink cold, sweetened coffee though.
I'm trying to up the vegies, finding I'm eating way to much fried foods.

I had the Aussie Backyard Salad at Hogs Breath yesterday - sooooo good:
Caramelised diced pumpkin, mesculin lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, Aussie feta cheese, capsicum and almonds, tossed with a dressing of your choice (I had balsamic).

The closest I have gotten to craving anything is hot fresh salty chips. Yum. I was carving milk in earlier weeks but it just made me feel sick, so I've had to give up on that.
Posted 14 November 2012 - 07:13 AM
I've been craving eggs since morning sickness kicked in. I always have them well done anyway, but for weeks they have been the main source of my nutrients.
I went off beef for a long time but now, at 13 weeks, I am not so repulsed by it - instead, I want to spew at the thought of chicken, which previously was fine.
Posted 14 November 2012 - 09:48 AM
I have developed a huge aversion to the smell of popcorn. Want to heave whenever I smell it (and the smell travels so far in an enclosed shopping centre).
I was unable to drink coffee until last week, but now I can manage it again.
I love hot chips and chilli on my meals is helping to make them bearable. I've also got quite a taste for kiwi fruit right now.

I'm loving Yo-Yo biscuits atm. No other real cravings, but if I start on yo-yo's I have trouble stopping!! So i'm now only packing 4 with my lunch, but they are generally gone quite early in the day
Anything salty/cheesy is good as well.

Posted 14 November 2012 - 12:32 PM
Donuts08 - All I can think about now is chocolate donuts!!! yummmmmm
Posted 14 November 2012 - 12:38 PM
Icypoles, strawberries, pizza, banana Up & Go's, salt, apple cider, milo, toast with honey and water. Water is my best friend.
Posted 14 November 2012 - 08:18 PM
I haven't had any cravings really, but I've gone completely off chocolate! It's weird for me because I used to eat it almost every day. Now I don't want it at all and the thought makes me feel a little queasy.
