When I was pregnant with my daughter, Shira, I craved Arby’s Roast Beef Sandwiches. Did I mention I’m a vegetarian? When I was pregnant with my son, Leo I totally craved olives.
Did you have, or did your wife/girlfriend have any wierd cravings when pregnant?
this is interesting:
What do we crave?
Everyone’s different, of course, but according to a study from The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the top contenders were sweets (like fruit, candy or chocolate) and dairy (like ice cream and milk). Lots of moms-to-be had an urge for fish, meat or poultry too. Check out a few of our faves from the message boards:
Rice with brown sugar, barbecue sauce, and butter. I thought it was soooo good and my husband looked at me like I was crazy. Now I would get sick if I ate that — gross! –ahartzle
Brownies with mustard or mac and cheese mixed with lo mein. –Scooter 359
McDonald’s sweet tea, garlic-stuffed olives, and salt — my husband walked in on me drinking the pickle juice straight from the jar. –t.bird
Jarred spaghetti sauce laced with about four tablespoons of sugar. I think it’s got something to do with the sugar cutting the acid in the tomatoes, but it’s been delectable to me on my pasta! –Flowr4246
Sometimes, I put pickles on Oreo cookies. You know those little round pickles for sandwiches? They’re the perfect size for an Oreo. –blissfully_caffeinated
I had a craving for chalky things like TUMS and chewable vitamins. –scubaspot
Onions and mustard. I don’t even like onions, but I would crave chopped onion drenched in mustard. –Morrison4319
I’ve been dipping cheese in ketchup! So gross but so good. –aerobaby
Salt! I have been eating it by the spoonful. I even went as far as having the hubby hide everything from garlic salt to table salt. –kasslynne
I have craved sour items throughout my pregnancy. For a few days, all I would eat was sour cream right out of the container. It was the only thing that appealed to me. –mbear511
Goldfish crackers dipped in strawberry ice cream. My husband had to hide the crackers because it was grossing him out! –Celtic Ember
Pickles in cream cheese wrapped with pepperoni. –katieriedel
“I haven’t craved anything weird. I’ve mostly allowed myself to indulge in things that I normally don’t allow myself to eat and write it off as a craving.” —browneyes_24b
“[I craved] Hardy’s Thickburgers and cheeseburgers in general. I think it was my body’s way of demanding that I feed it more iron. Oh yes, and any form of cake. I think that was my body’s way of telling me that cake is delicious.” —7miles
