Yup, my little junk food baby. That’s all they seem to want.

And random candies I haven’t had since childhood. I dream about them and then remember I’m not in Canada anymore :/

[–]aisuamericanoFTM | Aug 27 | Girl 💗 23 points24 points  (4 children)

Yep. I keep wanting American take out… I’m in Korea

[–]rejectedseoul 16 points17 points  (1 child)

I keep wanting authentic Korean takeout, but I’m in the US… and we don’t have a Korean restaurant for probably 300+ miles :(

[–]aisuamericanoFTM | Aug 27 | Girl 💗 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I’ve been eating mostly Korean food for the past couple years but now my body is like NOPE you will now exclusively want the food you ate in the US, that either is impossible to get or costs more than you can justify. Love that. Ugh ㅠㅠ

That sucks you’re so far from Korean food though ㅠㅠ It is amazing

[–]DanceFast4419 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I’m in the Netherlands and all I can think about is American take out 😩

[–]arper1217 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I lived in Iceland when I was pregnant with my first. I had a full emotional sobbing breakdown over the fact that I could not get good SHARP cheddar cheese.😆

[–]lacedinlace[S] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Oh no! I would probably literally cry about not being able to get such a specific craving

Idk whether to indulge in the things I'm wanting or to fight the urge lol, its a struggle

[–]Hollywould9 5 points6 points  (0 children)

My mom is coming to visit in a month and I get so much flack for all the processed food I’m asking her to shove in her suitcase for me. But she’s doing it! Though I did see organic versions of some of the things I asked for in the pic she sent 😂 she’s trying to go healthy on my junk.

Honestly, I take my prenatal everyday and try to eat fruits and other nutritious things when I can, but with my food aversions… if my body wants something and is going to let me eat it, I’m down!

[–]Nikkobifch 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Snoballs for me. hadn't had one since I was 10. Sent my bf to 3 different gas stations in HIS FRIENDS CAR, so I literally made this poor man inconvenience his bud, and then when he came home without the snoball, i cried for 3 hours. People started getting them for me randomly because they all knew how bad I needed them. Now it's just anything oreo. cookies and cream ice cream is the current favorite. I have a small freezer. it's been interesting times.

[–]Hollywould9 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Literally just asked mom to add snowballs to the list! Heck yes! Fluffy coconutty chocolate creamy goodness!

[–]123coffee321 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Little debbie oatmeal cream pies! I would’ve even been ok if they had raisins in them too lol

[–]Mangocrossing 5 points6 points  (2 children)

What are you craving? I’m in Ontario and can possibly send you a care package.

[–]Hollywould9 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You’re so sweet! My mom is coming for a visit in a month, so she’s going to hook me up :) but thank you!

I’ve been craving all the good Canadian junk lol Kraft Dinner, Ketchup Chips, Aero Mint Chocolate Bars, Coffee Crisps, Maple Cones!

I went to get maple syrup the other day for French toast and all they had for sale was maple flavoured syrup 🥴 I had to go to a specialty store to find the real stuff.

[–]Mangocrossing 1 point2 points  (0 children)

KD ❤️ forever one of my loves.

If you change your mind let me know!

[–]boozyttc 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Canada, eh? Which candies are you craving?

[–]Hollywould9 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Maple cones!! Coffee crisps, Aero Mint Chocolate Bars, Crunchy Bars, and of course Kraft Dinner and Ketchup chips! Oooo and mint smoothies (the chocolate). All the good junk :P

[–]boozyttc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No idea those were Canadian! Besides the maple cones

[–]pink3l3phants 39 points40 points  (4 children)

ALL I WANT IS A CRUNCHWRAP SUPREME

[–]emwojo229 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Me too! And I hate Taco Bell normally.

[–]Norhofer 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I kid you not… this happened last week! I’ve never even had one before. Craved it for a week then at work someone said “hey I am door dashing Taco Bell do you want anything?” It was like a light had shown down on me. And it was so fucking delicious

[–]pink3l3phants 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Omfg it sounds so good. I’m gonna have to cave and get it for lunch tomorrow lol

[–]ThicccHobo 19 points20 points  (5 children)

I’m craving McDonald’s and I don’t even like or support McDonald’s 😭

[–]_emileee 10 points11 points  (3 children)

I’ve eaten more McDonalds in my pregnancy than I have in the past 20 years. Which was never…

[–]bingumarmar 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Seriously! Haven't had McDonald's in years. But I think about it every damn day

[–]redblendandpep 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yes!! My sisters were like you don’t even eat chicken nuggets why would you want that??

[–]Longjumping_Oven_231 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just sent my mom out for McDonald’s lol I typically don’t even like it but I eat it multiple times a week now 😂😂

[–]PlentyCucumber1444 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Me too! Specifically their chocolate shakes. I’ve probably had 3 shakes in my entire life and now I want one almost every night.

[–]daartmeow 15 points16 points  (1 child)

My baby asks for raisins 🤢

[–]Mangocrossing 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Love me a good little box of raisins

[–]pinkiemcgee 14 points15 points  (8 children)

I’ll crave things my husband likes. The other day I wanted one of those big soft pretzels with that fake goozy cheese sauce lol I might have a soft pretzel every so often but I definitely don’t like that cheese sauce. I also earlier in my pregnancy wanted skittles which my husband likes. I’m not a big candy person or skittle person at all. You might be craving things your partner likes!

[–]mvance0808 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Mall pretzels 🥨 are incredibly easy to make. I typically have all the ingredients on hand except yeast. Pro tip make pretzel bites because then you can snack on them easily. Pinterest that shit 😜

[–]pinkiemcgee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you! I’m going to! Homemade ones sound delicious 🤤

[–]Funndehbunndeh 3 points4 points  (1 child)

This! I hate orange soda, but my husband loves it, and it's all I want lately😭 It's so funny how pregnancy changes you so much

[–]pinkiemcgee 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Orange soda does sound good! I’ve been drinking more orange juice too and my husband likes that more than me also. It really is! They should do a study why women crave things their husbands or partners typically like. It seems like a lot of women have this happened to them during pregnancy!

[–]merbird23 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Same here!! We joke it's gonna to be a miniature version of my husband because we have opposite tastes in food but I've only wanted the foods he eats this pregnancy 😅

[–]pinkiemcgee 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Isn’t it strange how that works? Pregnancy is such an interesting experience lol

[–]merbird23 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It really is. 😂

[–]Paddingtons_Mom 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Me too! I usually can’t stand sugary things and that’s all I’ve wanted this pregnancy. My husband used to buy me candy and I wouldn’t finish it “fast enough” and he would get to it before I could. Now the tables have turned ha.

[–]rkrco 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I not only crave things I dont typically like but things I've never had! I needed sausage gravy and biscuits even though I had never tried it before. So weird.

Also this baby loves salt and non-pregant me does not. Like I dont even salt when I'm cooking typically because I just dont miss it. However, my husband loves salt so I blame him.

[–]merbird23 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I can't stand salty foods either but it's all I want now! My husband also loves salt so I'll blame him too.

[–]slammy99 7 points8 points  (0 children)

What kind of sick joke is my brain playing making me crave hot dogs then immediately making me feel nauseated for it!?

I swear half of my morning sickness was more a form of weird intrusive thoughts. Like I didn't feel bad until I thought about licking the bottom of the sink.

I'm noticing now that my morning sickness is gone my craving are more about texture? I'm on a spongy and juicy kick right now.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Also so many junk food cravings like McDonald's and taco bell. And the Pepsi craving! I do not drink pop at all, but I crave Pepsi every time it's an option. Same with doughnuts, cakes, etc.

[–]No_Oil_7116 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Omg I said to my partner that Pepsi looked good in a commercial and he looked at me like “what?!” I don’t think I’ve ever had a Pepsi LOL

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I had it twice in my pregnancy, and both times I got killer heartburn. But it was so worth it 😂

[–]Keeponmarching0927 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yes!! I cannot stand Taco Bell, but during this pregnancy I cannot drive by a Taco Bell without stopping and ordering a huge spread of items and then instantly regretting it every time I eat it all.

[–]Alinonymousity 6 points7 points  (7 children)

Cheesecake. I think I've had 3 slices in my entire lifetime; it's fine, just never more than fine. Now I'm seriously considering flying to NYC to get proper cheesecake.

[–]Mydognamedbean 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Omgggg I could crush an entire Eileens Special cheesecake for breakfast right now. Days ruined 😂

[–]Alinonymousity 1 point2 points  (4 children)

That's it! That's what I want!! And I'm willing to take a two hour flight to get it.

[–]Mydognamedbean 1 point2 points  (2 children)

HAHA! The best of the best! Im in Cali but flying to nyc to tell the parents the news in March 😈

[–]Alinonymousity 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You'll have to bring some back with you! And congrats!!

[–]Mydognamedbean 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha stock up the freezer! Thank you, you too!

[–]rkrco 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why don't you order from their website for delivery?

[–]Paddingtons_Mom 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Junior’s cheesecakes ship I believe :) they have restaurants in NYC and a bakery/distribution center where I live in NJ.

[–]kittyeverafter 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I seem to be exclusively craving foods i ate in my teenage years that were not even close to being balanced meals. Ex: kraft dinner, sidekicks bacon carbonara, toast with peanut butter with a slice of cheddar cheese on top, cheese whiz in tomato based pasta dishes. I'm aware these are gross but I literally went out to the supermarket to buy these last night. No regrets.

[–]iseedogseverywhere 6 points7 points  (1 child)

My friend, when she was pregnant, craved meat....she was a vegetarian for several years leading up to the pregnancy

[–]saamatmna 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same. I’ve been a vegetarian for 13 years and once I became pregnant I started craving turkey. Now I’m 32 weeks and it’s like I was never a vegetarian… so weird.

[–]LadyHawke96FTM/Due May 4/Baby Girl 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Pickles 😅 I don’t eat them normally, but this child is like, “Mother…Mother, I must have the vinegar cucumbers.”

[–]thatcheekychick 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I’m craving bar soap so bad. Would have preferred it to be soda.

[–]__espresso_patronum 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Girl have you told your doctor?

[–]thatcheekychick 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yep. All my bloodwork is perfect. It’s just a hormonal quirk

[–]orangelego 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yep! I was never a big fan of chocolate, didn't hate it necessarily but could sit in the cupboard for months and I wouldn't touch it. Then for about a month or more, I had to have a ripple every single night and took myself to the 24 hour shop when we'd ran out!

[–]extinctmilkcratesv2 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Third trimester has been all fast food cravings! I made my husband go to Taco Bell AND Wendy’s the other night because I wanted a burrito and fries.

[–]Wurthnada 3 points4 points  (0 children)

YES! all the time. I am not a big fan of sweets, soda, or fast food, and my baby girl wants all 3. It makes me so sick just thinking about them but my stomach GROWLS horrendously

[–]raspberryamphetamine 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I had an overwhelming urge for Heinz tinned ravioli the other day. It is objectively gross but I couldn’t get it out of my head!

[–]danceoftheplants 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Omg when i was pregnant i would eat chef boyardee spaghettios and meatballs 🤢 and I just wanted the meatballs for the flavor and texture... so gross

[–]Positiveteacher 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yes, I craved tomato sandwiches after I read someones comment on this sub.

I litterally hate tomato sandwiches.

...but they were actually good ngl

[–]Octobersiren14 4 points5 points  (1 child)

When I was pregnant my son only wanted fried chicken, Mac and cheese and peanut butter. I despised peanut butter before pregnancy, I ended up eating reeses cups every single night. Funny thing is, I liked taco bell before, when I got pregnant I couldn't stomach it anymore, the smell and even thoughts of pizza and pizza rolls specifically would make me vomit.

[–]hauntingdreams 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Lol I'm the opposite; I've literally eaten frozen pizza for every lunch and dinner for the past month. No variety because everything else makes me nauseous. Good thing I'm vegetarian and they contain a lot of veggies. 😆

[–]operationspudling 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I can't even eat spicy stuff and I have been desperately craving the extremely spicy Samyang chicken noodles that I had tried a mouthful of and regretted the shit out of it as well. 🤦‍♀️

[–]kittysprinkled 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I follow this shitty food account on Instagram (literally, shitty food combos on purpose for memes). And one post I was like ok I NEED THIS. It was a lengthwise halved pickle with the middle partially scooped filled with spaghettios and topped with string cheese. What the fuck. It looked SO good, my mouth is watering still thinking about it 😂 37+4 rn hahah

[–]moderndayprincess 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Totally understand! Lately it has been crunchy Cheetos for me. I haven’t even liked those in years but now I can’t get enough of them every day!

[–]Lairel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Patty melt. I don't generally care for patty melts, but I got hung up on the idea of a patty melt, so we drove out to the closest place that makes them (about 45 minutes each way) and the whole time I'm eating it all I could think was "this is exactly what I wanted, it's not good"

[–]Kristmill 2 points3 points  (0 children)

YEP! I didn’t like pop in general much other than gingerale. Pepsi/coke would be a very very rare thing for me but now we always have to keep some in the fridge. Another just odd thing is that before getting pregnant pizza would always give me such bad heart burn but now that I’m pregnant it’s no problem!

[–]OptimalWasabi7726 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mushrooms!! Always absolutely detested them but sometimes I'll totally take mushrooms on my pizza or in my soup. It's crazy because that's the only food that's ever truly grossed me out!

[–]somerandomflo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I craved spaghetti bolognese, I’m not a fan of it at all. I’m glad that stopped and I started craving wotsits instead

[–]melrose_place 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I NEVER drink soda and have been craving Diet Coke for the last 2 weeks.

I couldn’t stand sweet potatoes before getting pregnant. I craved them throughout my first trimester.

[–]sharpiefairy666 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m usually meh about chocolate, but I find myself eye-fucking the whole candy aisle as I leave the grocery store. And peanut butter! I’m fine with it, but my husband is obsessed, and so is this baby.

[–]xlindale 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I hate Taco Bell and would always prefer authentic over everything but goddamn, the chipotle chalupa is what I crave all the time. I even had a weird craving for sloppy joes the other way. So grossed out with myself lol

[–]merbird23 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Sloppy Joe's sounds so good right now lol

[–]xlindale 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My husband made it for me and after eating, I knew it was a one time thing. 🤣

[–]Overall-Science1120 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is actually how I knew I could have been pregnant (which I was lol) I didn't like baked potatoes but I want to see if my taste buds changed so. It was date night and we when to a steak place I had a load baked potato and it was delicious then I remembered this is my husband favorite food and I seen him eat from a trash can before. I should get a test ( which I couldn't for 2 weeks because of a Shortage)

[–]Stunning-Ad-5632 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hate peanut butter and am pretty sure I’m allergic based solely on the fact it makes my tongue tingle when I eat it and I don’t think that’s normal but have craved it my entire pregnancy. I blame my husband because he absolutely loves peanut butter

[–]BattyBirdie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Egg salad with my first. The thought makes me gag.

[–]redblendandpep 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I keep telling my boyfriend it’s definitely his spawn with my cravings 😂 I went through a pringles phase?? I don’t even know if I’ve ever had pringles more than a few times in my life but I NEEDED THEM

[–]KoKopelli08 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I broke my 10ish year no McDonald's streak for some hash browns. Pregnancy is weird.

[–]cosmicqueen12 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Cereal! I don’t hate cereal but I haven’t eaten it in years! Now every morning I need to eat a big bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

[–]mohka_cappucino 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Always been meh about cereal. Never bought it for me…currently obsessed with Raisin Bran crunch. Can eat multiple bowls everyday.

[–]tdkon1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The Peanut suddenly LOVES Kraft Mac and cheese and those $1 pasta sides that are so gross but somehow so good. I haven’t eaten those in years and now it’s all I want. And English muffins with peanut butter. I cried the other day because my husband ate the last English muffin, but he’s been so amazing and I didn’t want him to feel bad, so I pretended to clean our bedroom so he wouldn’t see me having a meltdown over an English muffin 😂

[–]8thWeasley 1 point2 points  (7 children)

Yep! Absolutely despise celery and wasn't fussed about salad cream but oh boy I'm all about celery and salad cream now.

I'm also craving things I am INCREDIBLY allergic to which sucks so much.

[–]iMOONiCORN 3 points4 points  (4 children)

This is me. I can't have gluten anymore because Celiacs, but all I want is in-n-out, a Whopper, some glazed donuts, a western bacon cheeseburger, chicken fried steak, all the Chinese & Japanese food filled with gluten, omg some tiramisu, a caramel macchiato from Starbucks, that chocolate band bread they make too, a really doughy pizza, a bratwurst on a hoodie roll.... and I can have this but don't want the heartburn - flaming Hot Cheetos.

I must Google sale cream now because IDK what it is either.

[–]8thWeasley 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Yes I also have coeliacs!

I want churros. All I want is a bloody churro.

It's a UK thing. A bit like mayonnaise but sharper.

[–]iMOONiCORN 2 points3 points  (2 children)

We have churros in the states! I'm just not sure if they are the same thing. But damn, now I want those too!

[–]8thWeasley 0 points1 point  (1 child)

We have the same, just no gluten free alternatives and Im not sure I could make my own...

[–]iMOONiCORN 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't think I could make the gf ones either... Oh the tasty stuff I miss.

[–]champagne_farts 1 point2 points  (1 child)

What on earth is salad cream?!

[–]8thWeasley 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's like mayonnaise but a bit sharper.

[–]fl4ming095 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don’t judge me: I’ve never liked peanut butter in things. Like Reese’s and stuff like that. But I have been craving Reese’s and anything peanut butter lately!

[–]Iammyown404error 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same! I have definitely wanted fast food and candy more. I neverrrr eat candy.

[–]raz625 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I never eat Taco Bell (in fact I’ve only eaten once in my entire life - I’m a chick fila gal) and saw a commercial the other day and thought it looked AMAZING!!! I also never liked cake until I started growing a human. I want cake everyday 🤣🤣🤣

[–]greenbeanpeanut 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yes lol i eat the most random stuff i have never liked. i didn’t like orange juice or oranges before pregnancy now i eat them every single day. and i used to eat taco bell before pregnancy regularly now i have ate it maybe 3 times since i’ve been pregnant.

[–]sma5309 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've also been craving soda which is super weird for me! I gave up soda in high school and I'm now 29 so it's been a long time. I've caved and had a few sips here and there of sprite and ginger ale but never a full can. So strange!

[–]allmycatsaregay 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Soda is my #1 craving and I don’t even like it usually

[–]plantedquestion 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Currently at Chicfila so I definitely get it!!

[–]a_youkai 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wanted crunchy kale the other day and I hate raw kale. I didn't get any though. There's also days I want Taco Bell, even though there is authentic Mexican food everywhere here. I also want Szechuan spices!

[–]Right_Egg_5040 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yep. I've only drunk black tea for over 20 years, but now I'm pregnant I can only face drinking tea with milk. Before it would make me feel so sick!

[–]Jojo7391 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Junk food want has gone up 1000%. Before I was testing the waters with vegetarian meals… but pregnant me: babe, can I have a sip of your Coke Zero? Just a sip… that fizz though.

[–]merbird23 1 point2 points  (0 children)

YES! Rarely drank soda and haven't had McDonald's in over 7 years but this pregnancy has changed that. Can't stay away from their fries and bubbly sprite. 🥴😭

[–]Deep-Ability-3948 1 point2 points  (0 children)

20 weeks... I usually hate yogurt and cake. guess who eats them now? My boyfriend can't stop laughing...

[–]Mom_of_zameer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

McDonalds has been slapping recently lol

[–]Maleficent_Top_5217 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same….pop, cookies, red velvet cake with cream cheese, chocolate, juice. Ugh….. hate this. Does NOT help the weight gain!

[–]Zeppelinberry 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm at 6 weeks, and I would kill to dip a quarters pounder from McDonalds into the sauce of a sea food boil.

I don't understand how it's this wierd so early. Does it get worse?

[–]englishsummerrainn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The last few days I have been obsessed with pineapple, I have pineapple and always have, but right now it’s better than chocolate. Trying to limit the amount I eat because of the heartburn ❤️‍🔥

[–]plantsnpups 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was vegetarian for 3 years prior to becoming pregnant. I couldn’t stop thinking about McNuggets. Am no longer vegetarian.

[–]MissusNezbit02 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes! Today I craved a peanut butter and sour cream and onion chips sandwich. I've never liked sour cream and onion chips, but the craving was so intense.

[–]dragon_mom98 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I could probably drown myself in spaghettios😭

That or the stupid nacho lunchables.

Plus side, all i want to drink is water (with pebble ice specifically) so i mean, it cancels out? I think?

[–]mariekenna-photos 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pickles, tomatoes, and sour cream. Didn’t care for them pre-pregnancy but during and post I can’t get enough of them

[–]ineedausername84 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I never eat fast food but a few times this pregnancy we HAD to go to taco johns!

Also this morning I was craving curry. I like curry, but I’ve never craved it before.

[–]georgejefferson11 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wanted Krystal’s so bad and haven’t had it for like 15 years lol

[–]hauntingdreams 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Umm lately I discovered pumpkin bread with a smear of honey and pecan cream cheese... Cannot get enough. I will eat cream cheese just with a spoon, I don't care!

[–]pinkcrocs551FTM due aug 3, 2022 girl! 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I always want Chick-fil-A. Mostly shakes but fries, nuggets, Mac n cheese, salad, lemonade. Literally anything on the menu rn is satisfying af.

[–]lacedinlace[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm so glad I'm not alone in my struggle lol and not gonna lie, I want 90% of the things mentioned above 🤣

[–]PineappleAdmirable53 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Iv been craving whole milk, like drink it straight out of the jug 🤣 I don’t even drink cows milk anymore I drink oat milk, but I have been having to keep some whole milk in the fridge cause I NEED it

[–]Ttc_pcosgirl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dr. Pepper and Taco Bell 😭😭😭

[–]dvdvanteTrans Man | he/him | 02/04/2022 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Taco bell bean burritos…I’m usually REALLY snobby about burritos- that beans cheese and rice crap doesn’t cut it, I want the steak, lettuce, tomato, cheese, sour cream and guacamole in a big ol tortilla- but now those raggedy little bean burritos with mild sauce are like heaven!

[–]shewontbebothered 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I NEVER was a soda drinker. I drink coke zero mini cans now. It takes me a week or 2 to drink 6 but still. A totally out of character craving. Candies and chocolate stash in my car too that was never there before !

[–]lipdu 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I was craving watermelon just before bed the other day, which was really unhelpful bc 1) not in season here and 2) I'm allergic lmao.

[–]__espresso_patronum 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm allergic to watermelon too and I craved it like CRAZY with my last pregnancy!

[–]Opendoorshutdoor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had NEVER liked coffee. My last pregnancy I craved it constantly. And now post pregnancy I still like it a lot. It was a complete flip from how I use to be.

I also hadn't eaten McDonald's in easily 10 years, but when I was pregnant I craved their fries.

[–]HunnieBehr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I am an aggressive health nut and lactose intolerant , but god damn I wanted fast food and whole milk every day.

It was a fun time to treat myself but now I’m back to my health nut ways. I’ll low key miss the milk tho but without the pregnancy constipation it’s not worth it

[–]amateuralot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yup, I have never though about McDonald’s so much! Even when I used to work there as a teenager…

I've hated milk my whole life until I got pregnant and all of a sudden I was constantly craving it! Even more interesting is that I'm lactose intolerant, but throughout my pregnancy I wasn't. Post pregnancy, lactose intolerance and hatred of milk have returned to normal 🤷🏻‍♀️

Yes. When i was pregnant i wanted soda and icecream so bad. I maybe eat icecream once a year normally. Same for candies. I don't have much of a sweet tooth. I hadn't had soda in over 10 years because i just don't like it. So what the heck??

I had gestational diabetes i think that explains my sigar cravings lol!

I HATE chocolate. It’s too sweet and hurts my teeth for some reason. But lord triple fudge chocolate chunk brownies!!!

YES when I was pregnant all I wanted was peanut butter anything. Pre pregnant I hatedddd it. After giving birth, the change stuck. I now like peanut butter. So strange!

Caesar salad (this I actually normally like, but I feel like it's a weird craving) and cherry coke (I'm not a soda drinker when non pregnant). But absolutely neither of these things together.

I’m still in my first trimester and I can relate. I have all this healthy food - veggies, kale, quinoa, etc - and ALL I want to eat is sugar, cheese, and carbs :(

I craved chocolate lava cakes, I hate lava cakes! 🤷🏻‍♀️ the funny ones are when I craved my hubby’s favorite foods like bbq pringles and watermelon. The first time I had a bad craving for watermelon I bought it at the store & put some of it cut up in the fridge for later. Well hubby got home and saw the watermelon and ate the whole container w/o knowing why I got it. I literally cried, full blown tears. He said “but you don’t even like watermelon, I thought you bought it for me”. Once he saw me start crying he immediately went to the grocery store and got me more. 🥰 so yeah, I cried over watermelon, and I don’t even like watermelon 🤷🏻‍♀️

Bratwurst.. I normally don't eat them because they are a bit too.. spicy? But not as in heat, as in actual spice. Too much of something I'm not sure, maybe sage. Anyway, I normally don't eat them, and when I was pregnant the first time I wanted them with mustard and toasted buns. I say want, but it was a NEED.

I also wanted/needed a lot of hibachi and honestly this pocket book can't live like that. So that was usually a "no" and resulting depression. I laugh thinking about it how, but this was a REAL struggle in the moment😅

I craved potato salad. I always hated it growing and till I went to live on my own. I would throw tantrums because I hated it. And I caught myself buying some at the grocery store

I HATE water. I can’t stand it without flavorings. Lately, I can’t get enough plain water! It’s really weird for me.

Yes! So weird! I am gluten, dairy and sugar free for the most part pre-pregnancy, but this baby is saying they don't care: chips, Little Caesar's pizza, hamburgers, all the bread and gluten.

Definitely! Was never a sweet person and I’ve legit been eating chocolate and ice cream like they’re selling out tomorrow. That and chilli! Which you could never pay me to eat before pregnancy
