So what are you missing most in your pregnancy and what do you want to eat ASAP after you give birth?

For me,
- Cold ham sandwich
- STRONG cuppucino
- Very large strawberry milkshake (I can't tolerate dairy atm sad.gif )

And maybe once I'm over the initial shock after a few days an ice cold gin and tonic with lime biggrin.gif

Poached eggs with runny yolk.
A chocolate thickshake made with soft serve ice cream.


hmm.... And a strong coffee now that I've been thinking about your list!

# 1 it was KFC

# 2 & 3 chocolate milk & a custard tart

# 4 was subway

This time I dont know till after I give birth & hubby says are you going to eat the hospital food or do you want me to drop you something back...

And eventually one day down the track a jim beam with diet coke...

Strong coffee or two, with an enormous slice of fudgey chocolate cake and thick frosting. (Gestational diabetes should resolve within 12 hours of delivery. Cake will be waiting.)

Glass of a particular wine we bought at a cellar door a few months ago. DH has been drinking the supply down, but there's a bottle left with my name on it.

Nice Christmas seafood, lots of salmon in various ways.

Aah Lokum you're lucky to get in before Christmas, oh I will be sobbing watching everyone tuck into the ham!

Blue cheese on Lavosh crackers with quince paste and roasted pear.

A Strong cup of plunger coffee.

But more importantly the ability to put something in my mouth without anyone saying "can you eat that?", "Should you be eating that?", "Is that good for the baby?"

Tonight, all I want is a nice bottle of wine to help ease my assignment worries, so my immediate answer is probably a little biased by that.  

Otherwise, I'd love a great big pile of double cream brie smooshed on awesome crusty toasted sourdough with a side of lemony Eggs Florentine, followed by a really cold Corona with lime.

OMG, I'm really hungry.  I'm going to see what's hiding in the fridge...

I've requested DH bring in a sashimi platter and rock oysters. One thing that surprised me about pregnancy is that I missed sashimi more than wine!

#16 I'mBeachedAs

Sushi. There's a sushi shop under the hospital so my husband has been given strict instructions regarding sushi provisions post birth!

Also, Christmas ham will be featuring heavily in the weeks post birth I suspect, as will chocolate thanks to having to give it up after my GD diagnosis.

I've just read through the responses & other than sushi, cold prawns & oysters (which I missed desperately) and salami, I ate everything that everyone is craving. I imagine for my next pregnancy I'll be eating sushi as well, as long as its from one of the places I know and trust.

Why can't you have a milkshake (other than for GD reasons)?

Sushi, smoked salmon, Camembert. Sigh.

Although I'll probably eat sushi from my local store toward the end of my pregnancy (not seafood though) as they make everything fresh and don't store the rice or something.

Ooh! My DH asked me this today... I'll have a ham and tomato sandwich or toastie please with a malteser mcflurry to chase it down... YUMMO!

Smoked salmon bagel with cream cheese and lots of black pepper - at the moment black pepper tastes like metal  cry1.gif

There's a place near me that does this amazing baguette with brie and roast pork with lots of crackling - it taunts me every time I walk past.

A ham and pickle sandwich followed by lots of sushi and either a beer or a glass of wine original.gif

#23 Bellefin

Alcohol. Any sort will do but probably red wine followed by rum and coke another time. And after that, a whole pint of cider to myself.

Any runny eggs on toast if I had to choose some food.

If I dont get a hotdog and malteaser mcflurry soon I am going to lose it.
