  • With all 3 of my pregnancies I craved mostly drinks. Chocolate big m, smoothies, milkshakes.

  • No, I didn’t crave anything during pregnancy either.

  • I didn’t have any cravings during pregnancy.

  • I didn’t think I craved anything until a work colleague pointed out that I was eating scrambled egg and spinach muffins every day! Our Daughter loves this combo so I guess she was craving it!

  • Nope, I didn’t have cravings. I went off chocolate and coffee, still don’t drink much coffee. And due to morning sickness, I could only eat some foods for a while

  • I didn’t have any cravings with either two pregnancies. I did use it as an excuse to eat more chocolate though ????

  • I craved rice and potatoes my entire pregnancy. If we went out to eat I either had rice with sauce or hot chips. In the beginning I ate so much Indian food that chicken started making me really sick, as did all red meats. When I was turned off Indian I found a new love for arancini balls.
    Also for about a week I craved cheese flavoured rice cakes with nutella and grated carrot. When I finally ate it I brought it back up and never gave into it again.

  • I didn’t have any cravings with either- I could only keep down carbs for the first half of both pregnancies, but no real cravings

  • To be honest, I didn’t. But I know lots of people that did. I felt weird being different from the rest, but I guess it depends each person is different. Even each pregnancy is as well.

  • I craved food when i was pregnant, but i always crave it now when I’m not! Grrr these winter kilo’s are not getting away from me! Haha

  • Yes i did crave for harshbrown and chips alot during pregnancy

  • Food cravings tend to come down to what your body associates with that food. For example…if your body knows you’re not eating enough to sustain what it needs to do it will crave sweet things so you eat, if you’re for example low in iron it might crave red meat or spinach..low in magnesium might crave dark chocolate. Low in idone, craves salt …low in antioxidants , might crave berries….low in vit c, might crave citrus fruit (this are just what seems to rein true with myself and I know everyone is different )

  • I didn’t really crave anything either. There were things I couldn’t eat or that the smell of made me feel a bit yuck though

  • na, you want the truth I’ll give it to yah. People use being pregnant as a excuse to eat more because there ‘ eating for 2′ or the ‘baby’s craving things’ its all a load of bull which is why some women gain ridiculous amounts of weight. Women get in the mind frame there gunna crave food so they do, I had 3 kids ate normal and still had treats and lost all my baby weight within a few months by eating right and exercising. My cousin 6 years later after kids is 50kgs heavier and still blames her pregnancies. That’s the difference.

  • I didn’t crave much in my pregnancies at all.
