Got any crazy cravings yet? mine: anything cheese and tater tots

I know we all have them. I was watching the Cake Boss with the kids when Buddy's sister was craving really weird stuff, like eggs on pasta and chocolate on pickles. Then he made her a baby shower cake with chocolate, bananas and peanut butter. I thought that would sound great, put it all together and the taste of the bananas made me nauseous. Now I can't eat bananas! Crazy, Cuz I love bananas!

the bad thing about my craving cheese is I'm not supposed to eat dairy. I use almond milk instead but cow's milk messes with my allergies and can hurt my tummy. Cheese is better than milk, but only by a little.

My weirdest craving to date (had it with my six year old daughter) cheese and granola. I would roll the granola in shredded cheese. Can you tell I have a hard time avoiding dairy?

What's the weirdest thing you have craved with this or any other pregnancy?

So far I have been craving anything dairy (mostly yogurt and milk) and fruit, but every since I read "tater tots," I can't get them off my mind! I might have to pick some up while I am out today.

A couple days ago, I woke up craving breakfast sausage like crazy, but of course, we didn't have any.

Lemon juice! A few days before I tested, i got a bit on my finger, licked it off, and it just hit the spot. I had a little bit more, then couldn't wait to have it on my lunch (a pasta dish that called for lemon juice), the next day. That was the moment I thought I might actually be pregnant:smileyhappy:.

During my first pregnancy, there were weeks when I would eat at least 2 whole lemons per day. I cut them into wedges and would suck on them during the work day.

Good for all you ladies who are craving fruit! It's a great time of year to get it, and so good for our babes:smileyhappy:.

Peaches! Steak! Potatoes! Cottage cheese! Lots of things sound so good but I have to be careful because if I eat too much of them it turns into an aversion real quick!

No one thing in particular.  Yesterday I wanted fish sticks (and was able to eat them after smelling them bake!). Last week I got stuck on a sub from Jimmy John's.  I wound up bringing home some of their day old bread and putting it in baggies in the freezer so I can make my own subs whenever the urge strikes.  The day before it was chicken soft tacos (my normal Monday after dance practice meal...which was cancelled due to rain) - here's hoping we can actually have practice tonight so I can have one! :-)  Smells are more likely to cause an aversion than anything else. Although I did cook some beef strips for supper the other night and while they smelled awesome, I only got one bite before it made my stomach turn.  Greek Yogurt is currently also on the bad list - I have texture issues on a good day and being pg has made it lots worse. :-(
