With me with all 3 pregnancies it was VINAGER! I could (and once did!) drink it straight out of the bottle! I would wake up thinking about it. I made salads with just vinager, I soaked celery in it, I poured it on all kinds of food....It was the first sign of all the pregnancies, that intense craving for it!

PICA is so crazy my friend had a thing for dryer lint. She would be in the wash room just sniffing away. I remember her having a stash of it so she could sniff when ever she wanted.
Another weird one for me was ice. With this pregnancy I still crave ice, I even go to Sonic and order a large cup of ice, they have the little pellets and are so yummy!!

Ha Ha Ha!

Lauchlan - that is funny! It reminded me of my Mother who one time told me that she wanted to bite on a car tire when she was expecting me.

I am sure I have had some weird craving too. I just can't seem to remember right now . . .

Nothing weird, but I had to have CHIPS AND SALSA! Couldn't get enough of it while pregnant (still like it, but don't crave it)! Of course I detested anything else made with tomatoes! Just wonder what the next pregnancy will bring.

I also had PICA and wanted to drink gasoline! It just smelled SO GOOD!!! Of course I didn't though.

I ate a TON of cheeseburgers when I was in the hospital on bed rest. That was my absolute favorite!!!

As far as weird craving, I don't think I can think of any specific, but I can sure tell you that lately, sometimes when I eat a meal, I crave something sweet, so I will go for a banana and eat some while I am eating the salty meal!

Lately my biggest craving has been pretzels dipped in ranch dressing and orange juice to wash it all down with. My SIL, who is due in just 5 weeks, has been craving buttered popcorn dipped in chocolate ice cream. Pregnancy sure does crazy things to the taste buds!!!![;)]

Take Care,

With Michael it was bannana splits, nachos, and buffalo wings.

With this one... Thai food, especially Jasmine rice! Tabasco sauce (I'll take it on anything) and... CRANBERRIES!! Cranberry anything will do..Juice, Bread, Muffins, that Cranberry Almond Crunch Cerel..

mmmmm
