LilSugar Challenge: Crazy Things That Pregnant Women Crave!

A pint of ice cream and pass the pickles? Pregnancy cravings can easily get the best of an expectant mama or, more likely, her partner if she isn't prepared. I never had any crazy late night cravings (like vegetarians who suddenly need meat), but I did find myself eating more of these three things:

  • Mexican food
  • Gummy candy
  • Bagels

Pickles with ice cream or eggs round the clock, tell us: what was your most shocking pregnancy craving?

I did not have weird cravings while pregnant. Instead, i indulged in my favourites like cream cheese, avocado, connamon toast, milkshake & other high-calorie goodies that i normally wouldn't eat too much of

I've been craving lots of fruit and red meat. Oh, and bacon, tomato and egg sandwiches! I can't get enough!

Everything bagels....big giant 5,000 calorie NY bagels with cream cheese! And for a while McDonald's french fries even though I hardly ever eat fast food. With my 1st all I wanted was Taco Bell tacos.

I craved Velveeta cheese slices and Slurpees- two foods I hadn't eaten since I was a kid! Yuck- I am glad that's over!

I didn't have any unusual food cravings, just stronger cravings for carbs (which I have always LOVED). The weird thing was during my 2nd trimester, I lost my craving for chocolate and I love, love, love chocolate. Luckily, or unluckily, the craving returned in time for my 3rd trimester.

Super spicy anything - I first started to believe the positive pregnancy test when I ate the chunk of wasabi at a sushi restaurant. For the record, it tasted absolutely wonderful and was just what I needed at that very moment. Later on in the pregnancy, I wanted something that I had never liked before: Coffee! Being pregnant started my love affair with coffee. I usually drank decaf, unless I was in danger of falling asleep at the wheel.

I didn't really have many cravings and none that were strange, but I had a ton of food aversions. I could barley eat meat the entire pregnancy and the smell of onion anything (bagels, rolls, etc.) made me extremely nauseous.

I'm craving juicy fruit and fruit juice, particularly Welch's grape juice. Also cheddar cheese. Nothing weird or gross yet! Everyone thinks it would be hilarious if I started craving meat after not eating it for 12 years, but thankfully it hasn't happened yet.
