I've not had any 'unusual' cravings yet but I am finding myself wanting eggs, eggs and more eggs - I'd kill for a poached egg but instead am sating my craving with hard boiled and scrambled eggs. Thinking this might be a sign I need to up my protein intake.

I'm also craving pickled onions, avocado and cheese (not necessarily together, but actually that could be yummy!).

Has anyone had any strange cravings or any particular foods they can't get enough of?

Mmmm, eggs!  happy.gif  I'm craving garlic - have never really been a fan of it before, just ate it because I knew it was healthy not because I liked it, and now I absolutely LOVE garlic!

rolleyes.gif I haven't really had many cravings yet. Except for carbs, I was on a very strict no carb diet before becoming pregnant (Im getting married in a month, I will now be waddling down the aisle biggrin.gif ). So since we discovered the little surprise in my belly, my body has been screaming for carbs, potatoe's, pasta and bread. It probably explains why Ive gained 10kgs in the first 20 weeks, but in saying that I was slightly underweight anyway. I am constantly obssessed with food though!! Im like you with eggs too, I eat 4 a day a now.

So this afternoon DH and I Drove around checking all our local milk bars for ones that sell mixed Lollies. After 4 stops we hit the jackpot, a shop that sells 'mates' I tried eating fantales and milk duds (which helped my cravings a little bit),but oh! the joy when your craving is satisfied. Yum!!

Anything sugary. I come home from work and have a chocolate chip cookie and glass of lemonade and hope that settles it. I'm getting worried that ill have a hyperactive child because I'm eating and drinking so much sugar

Initally it was blueberries - just couldn't get enough of them.
A spoon of ice cream before bed. Vanilla, cookie n cream or pistaschio are winners.
McDonalds triple cheeseburger no pickles - I never ate Maccas before but now there is something quite wonderful about it.
White sliced bread with butter & vegemite or nutella. Sometimes with cheese and salmon.

I am craving white chocolate cookies all. the. time.  biggrin.gif Don't usually even like white chocolate.

I've been looking at this pregnancy diet page for a guide and it also has some recipes that I am really loving.


The Lentil & Beetroot Salad is amazing and low GI.

Some of these cravings are making me very hungry!

I've definitely moved from savoury to sweet cravings, like the PP who is craving white chocolate cookies, I can't get enough of cookies and chocolate. Am trying to limit the amount of sweets I'm consuming otherwise I'd be rolled in to the delivery suite by my husband!

Interesting that we don't seem to have an strange or unusual cravings - I guess that can be attributed to the prenatal vitamins and healthy eating that is encouraged during pregnancy.

Hope everyone is having a smooth and trouble free pregnancy!
