I'm only 6 weeks along and I want to eat sliced tomato on toast. A lot.

Anyone else having cravings or do I just want toast as a coincidence?

In from recent topics.

My DH had a very good line to consider....

"If you would eat the item when not PG it is not a PG craving"

So my desire to eat chocolate was just that.... Desire to eat chocolate.

I generally don't like tomatoes (they have a disgusting texture)... So I'm counting it original.gif

I don't think it's too early. Since I was about 6 weeks I have been totally HANKERING for chocolate milk, cold. I don't ever drink milk or chocolate milk normally. Had to buy an extra 3L in the shopping today to compensate for my awful desire to skull icy cold chocolate milk.....speaking of which maybe I want another one now  unsure.gif

Not too early at all. I just did a quick google and a lot of women start craving weird things as early as 4 weeks.

I had a crazy craving for fish finger sandwiches... which turned into an aversion after only one sandwich.
Even now, thinking about them to write this sentence is putting a big gross lump in my throat.

So now I have a bulk pack of fish fingers in my freezer which I am sure I will not be able to touch for months.  rolleyes.gif

Then I would count it cool.gif

My thing when PG with my first was a sudden aversion to red meat at 8wks (coincided with my Dads 60th at a restaurant where we had pre ordered steak for me). So dinner came out and I just wanted to hurl. Trying to keep Pg under wraps was hard that night.

Funny thing is 8yrs later I still don't like to eat steak. I only jus made it back to mince after 5yrs. Previously I would have steak three times a week.

Came from 'we are discussing' not DI Sept.

I had cravings for cheese at 5-6 weeks, ate soo much cheese on toast by week 7 cheese became my food aversion until about 18 weeks.

Congrats Sept girls.

cybersprite - with you there on the mac and cheese! I was literally just looking up a mac, cauliflower and cheese recipe (to make me feel like I'm getting something good out of it)

better than me. I'm crazing those gross kraft packages one!  blush.gif

I probably would be too but artificial flavours give me migraines

Plus I think it would be nice and easy to eat for my DH who knocked a tooth out with a hammer yesterday

I'm not in this DIG (I came in from recent topics), but I craved garlic and salty snacks very early on. In fact, I found out I was pregnant after I came home from work one day in a bad mood and ate an entire box of cheezels  ph34r.gif

You know, it is so weird this thread has ended so far on Kraft mac and cheese cravings. As i was reading through the thread i was nodding along thinking 'yes... i've been craving mac nd cheese', then that's what the conversation turned to!  I have got an absolute craving for it that I have been battling for two days. I bought a pack yet and it's still in the cupboard.

The thing is, I am not pregnant, that I know of... It's just that the cravings have made me start questioning whether I might be pregnant unknowingly! It would be baby #2 for us, and while we're not TTC yet, we are also not very careful...

Also a couple of days overdue for AF, so we'll see.

#19 Lishyfips

Me too! I've been eating sliced tomato on toast every day since I got pregnant. It's often the only thing I can face eating.

#20 againagain

Posted 07 February 2013 - 07:22 PM

Ok ladies, where is the old style Mac n Cheese - the one that has a little bag of pasta and the sauce in a small tin?? I haven't had it for years, but went looking for it at the supermarket and they only had the crappy powdered stuff with noodles mixed in.

I think it used to be called Deluxe or something, made by Kraft. I don't think I've had it since my first kid was 12 months old!

#21 theweehaggis

Posted 08 February 2013 - 07:12 AM

it is out there... keep looking againagain... it is the delux.

#22 cybersprite

Posted 08 February 2013 - 09:50 AM

Yep it is still around! I bought the deluxe one at either coles or woolies.

So good but so not good for you!

#23 theweehaggis

Posted 08 February 2013 - 10:32 AM

#24 againagain
