I love this food cravings question because you hear some unexpected answers. Mine was dull: pasta – but whilst breastfeeding the first time, I craved milkshakes then mushrooms.

  • I ate Guzman y Gomez everyday for lunch and had cheese toasties for brekkie each morning! Not the greatest and healthiest of foods but I wanted to give myself and bub what we were craving!
    Number two I ate peanut butter on toast everyday hoping we would avoid any nut allergies – not sure if that’s a sure thing but my little boy loves peanut butter and isn’t allergic.

  • My cravings swapped and changed a bit with each child and Im not sure they were cravings so much as I just wanted something lol but for me I wanted pickles, thickshakes and cheese burgers lol.

  • I craved Vegemite and Oranges. Not at the same time haha…however throughout the day I craved salty then citrus cravings. I had a girl if this means anything?

  • My cravings were rather dull & boring.
    With my 1st I didn’t really get any cravings but did go off all my favourite foods.
    With my 2nd I went crazy for vanilla yoghurt & doritos. I would dip the doritos into the yoghurt.
    With my 3rd it was corn flakes, at the most ridiculous hours.

  • Not as weird as some but lemons was for one (and he now can eat lemons without squeeming)

    Another I ate quite a lot of tomatoes which I normally wouldn’t eat.

  • I made my husband make me oven roast potatoes at 3am in the morning for a week straight!! he wasn’t happy but he dare not argue with me whilst I was pregnant.

  • raw rice!

  • All types of fruits! Watermelon was my number one though!

  • Crocodile?
    I am trying to figure out which word that is autocorrect for?!

  • I craved crocodile with lemon, risotto balls and all the things full of carbs that I hadn’t had for ages when I was eating super healthy. White bread, couldn’t stand the multigrain or wholemeal while pregnant. Pasta.
    My favourite thing I craved was peaches. Organic peaches in juice was a staple.

  • I craved sour things like pickles but that was only during the morning sickness time.

  • I craved spicy food and seafood .

  • My 1st pregnancy was roast beef and also peppermint choc chip ice cream. Which is very interesting as I don’t like ice cream normally and still don’t and I was not a meat eater then either but since then I do eat more meat than pre pregnancy.

  • With my 1st I HAD to have a hot cinnamon donut no later than 10am, later it was potato pies, hot chips. With my 2nd it was hot chips, pancakes and peanut butter & honey sandwiches (which was a worry as I have an allergy to both) I asked my dr what to do he said as I was in hospital try a little sandwich & see what happens. No allergic reaction. My Dr said pregnancy hormones can do weird things.

  • burger rings chips with my first child but nothing with the rest
