What Are You Excited to Eat When You're Pregnant?

Do Tell: What Are You Excited to Eat?

I love food so whenever I'm around a newly pregnant woman, I'm fascinated by their cravings and aversions. I've always said that when I get pregnant, I'm going to take full advantage of eating everything and anything I crave — there isn't a better excuse to go off your diet, right?! So to all you mothers out there, do tell, what did you eat when you were pregnant? And you non mothers, what are you most looking forward to eating guilt free while prego? It'll be Reese's Peanut Butter Cups for me!

At first, as I didn't know yet that I'm pregnant, I was crazy about olive. I ate it all day long, which is strange because I didn't like olive before. And then I was crazy about eggs, and then bread, choccolate, whatever hot and spicy, oranges, grapes, bananas... I hated sausages, and I still hate onions. :-)

Was weird - I craved oranges when I was pregnant with my daughter - I ate tons of them - breakfast, lunch, dinner! With my son, I craved salad - again - breakfast, lunch dinner - I HAD to have a salad! Snack? mmm....salad! Dessert? mmmm..more salad! I expected some kind of kooky cravings - but nothin - just for healthy food. LOL!

I enjoyed all the eating when I was pregnant. I normally don't eat a lot(small appetite), but when I was pregnant I was always hungry. And I ate a lot!! I seemed to crave things my body was short on. I wanted Cream Of Wheat with raisins. Every morning.( maybe low on iron?) And tuna. OMG! I craved tuna. I bet I ate it 4 or 5 times a week! And pork rinds. mmmmmm....... love me some pork rinds! ;)

I'm 2 months pregnant now and I crave cheese doodles and watermelon (not together, don't worry). I don't have any food aversions which is odd. Just my luck, there is nothing I don't want to eat. :)

I craved fruit all kinds. But my favorite snack was apples dipped in Nutella. But I was in love with dried fruit also.

Haa haa... it won't be peanut butter cups. I had this idea in my head about the things I would eat when I was pregnant, and NONE OF THEM are things I actually want to eat now that I am pregnant. :-D Oh, I was going to eat cupcakes and cheesecake and ben & jerry's and warm chocolate chip cookies. Well, then the first trimester hit and I could only eat buttered noodles, yogurt, fruit and a little bit of cheese & crackers. In the second trimester it's been somewhat better, but I've still had a pretty major aversion to sweets. What I have wanted to eat? Salt and lots of it! Salt bagels, salt and vinegar chips, pretzels; if it's salty it's my friend. And I've been craving refried beans and canned pineapple (thankfully not together). You never know what you'll be able to eat until you're actually pregnant.

wait...i would think that when i am pregnant, i would have to eat healthier than i do now! maybe more calores, but not junk food! i would want my body and my baby getting the best, healthiest things.

When you are pregnant you need 300 extra calories a day. So say you normally eat 1500 calories then you need 1800 calories when pregnant... There is no reason why some or even all of those calories can't come from the foods you are long as you are eating healthy most of the time then I say GO FOR IT!! As for me...I am not hungry in fact I am having a severe food aversion issue at this point so if I crave somethin I eat it cause it is a heck of a lot easier to force feed myself something that kinda sounds good than it is to eat something I really don't want to be within 10 feet of...

I've never been pregnant, but I imagine peanut butter and marshmallows. Oh wait, I eat those anyway, LOL. But the combination is delicious.

For me right now, it's Milky Way bars, but just the bite sized ones. Food aversions? Anything with a strong smell :)

Nothing ever worked out the way I planned when it came to eating while pregnant. In fact, each pregnancy has left me with more severe food aversions rather than cravings.
