What did you or your wife/so crave, when pregnant?

I just read on the dinner forum that Kimbaby is craving spaghetti and it made me smile.

With my first son, I was reading The Good Earth by Pearl Buck and I fried cabbage, garlic and butter together, every lunchtime. I had never touch fried cabbage in my life before.

With my second son, it was fudgesicles...and I'm not a fan of chocolate or ice cream.

First daughter it was tomato juice by the gallon, literally. And oranges, couldn't get enough. I figure I was low on vitamin C.

Second daughter was chocolate glazed doughnuts. Not one, not two, but three at a go. One went down too quick, two I could enjoy and three just to top me off. Strangely I gained the same amount of weight with each pregnancy. I have one junk food lover and one health nut, bet you can't guess which is which!

The most bizarre, unappetizing thing I craved was a sandwich.....

Raisin bread
Bologna
Blue cheese crumbles
ketchup

The very thought of it now makes me.

I couldn't stand anything with bbq sauce for either pregnancy. And, most of my perfumes ended up in the trash because the fragrances made morning sickness (which really is a misnomer...I was all day sick) much worse.

Because of my morning sickness with Boy#1, I couldn't drink OJ or eat doughnuts for about 10 years....still don't drink coffee.

I love lychee nuts! We hardly ever have them here in Maine, and when we do they are $6 per lb! Sorry I got a bit off topic there people

I craved whole milk. Had about 6-8 glasses per day (no joke!) I also craved the stouffer's creamed chip beef over toast. It was a staple with me 4-5 days per week (ugh! The sodium!!!)
Also, mexican food had to fit in at least 3 dinners each week.

(I wanted chocolate and coffee/caffeine with both kids, but took myself completely off of them during the pregnancies and the feeding year)
