Default 8 /12 months - weird cravings

Ok - Was reading up on peoples opinions of episode 8 1/2 months and in particular about the pregnancy cravings. I was wondering about people weird cravings when they were pregnant and thought I'd share mine. Please feel free to add yours and others you have heard of, it totally fascinates me

Pregnancy 1 - Mars Bars! Hated them before I was pregnant and after but while I was pregnant would happily have had them on intraveanous drip

Pregnancy 2 - Tuna - at it for breakfast, lunch and tea, my child of pregnancy 2 is now highly intellegent, but Hyperactive!!

Pregnancy 3 - Hungry Jacks (Burger King) Grilled Chicken Burgers, couldn't drive past without buying one

Also was staring longingly at terracotta pots (read my post in 8 1/2 months) but thankfully never ate one!!

With Mom when she was expecting me she craved fruits, taco bell, and tuna. She was constantly sending Dad to the grocery store. She even ate an entire watermellon in one sitting.

With my brother it was chicken, peanut butter burritos, and jam. It didn't matter what kind of jam it was she'd eat it right out of the jar.

My mum craved stout when pregant with one of my brothers.

With two out of the three pregnancies, I remember I craved warm egg salad (boiled eggs with mayonnaise). It had to be slightly salty, and it had to be warm. And Burger King milk shakes.

Also, I couldn't abide the smell of vanilla; to this day, I can't handle vanilla candles.

Yeah I think that some of the cravings stay with you, I still love tuna and fish in general and grilled chicken burgers

I drank stout while I was breastfeeding and developed a love for it which I will take to the grave

If I were ever to become pregnant, I wonder what weird cravings I would get.

When Mom was expecting me the grocery store clerks knew Dad by sight.

Ever since watching the episode 8 1/2 months, I've been curious about what jelly with onions taste like. I don't know why.

If you ever decide to try that out for yourself, then be sure to tell us all just what that tastes like. I'd be very curious to find out.

I'm a real sucker for MacDonalds fries dipped in MacDonalds soft serve ice cream (and I'm not currently pregnant) but I think jelly and onions I'll give a big miss!!

I don't know if I want to imagine jelly and onions mixed together.

I never liked onions and I got sick off jell-o once. It's a funny story now but when it happened oooooh boy.

Mom loves running into the room carrying either a box of jell-o or shoving it my face already made and saying, "Look at what I've got!"

I was at work the other day in the canteen and i was saying about weird cravings and one of them said when she was pregnant she loved to eat paper, especially bus tickets. She said she would just nibble the edge and by the time she got home it was gone!

How strange.

I've never been pregnant but I quite often have a craving for granny smith apples. I'll buy a whole bunch of them and eat them in about a week.

Yeah, every now and then I get some sort of weird craving, although I'm not pregnant (far too young to be even thinking about giving birth). I wonder why.

I think I've said elsewhere that with Bob I craved raw carrots, and with Becky it was McDonalds banana milkshake.

The weirdest thing though is what I used to eat for packed lunch when I was at school, which had all the girls teasing me that I must be pregnant.

Couldn't stomach it now (even I wasn't a reformed chocoholic) and don't know how I ate it then....

Cheese and chocolate spread sandwiches!

Actually I've heard of a lot of people craving tuna, (as I did and E's mum) often a craving is because of a dietry need but does not necessarily satisfy it, women who crave ice are iron deficient. So I wonder if craving tuna is a because of some deficiency.

Wow! And people thought I was weird for putting lettuce on a peanut butter sandwich when I was a kid. But peanut butter is so heavy and gooey, and lettuce adds a little light crunch. Just what it needs.

And why is it as soon as the midwife said you cant eat soft cheese and soft boiled eggs, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Thats all i wanted to eat!

I to ate alot of tuna but i didnt think anything of it cause i eat it quite a bit anyway.

When i was a kid i love raw potato, peeled of course.
And my ex always eats chesse and jam sandwhichs.
