My pregnancy food craving

I didn't really crave anything in this pregnancy other then apples. It's the only food I can remember in the last 9 months wanting more then anything else. With Oli I craved curry mixed with a serious amount of cookies, like I couldn't have them separately. When I cooked the curry, I would break up the cookie crumbs to add to it. Weird, huh? But at least it wasn't a lump of coal or a sponge. Did you have any cravings?

But this time around I've not noticed a serious urge for anything other then the times I needed apples, the good ones too not the cheap children ones that I usually chuck the child. Do you know how much a trolley full of apples can add too? Would of been cheaper to of had the curry/cookie craving again.

I have wanted stuff at times which is like a MUST EAT, you know each time I filled my gut with a mcdonalds it was secretly baby wanting it not me. Cakes have been a major urge, especially towards this end. I've gone off sweets completely and have replaced any snacking with cakes,biscuits and chocolate. I really am hoping this is just a pregnancy thing and that once I've popped, I can easily step away from the biscuit tin.

Suppose eating has been strange for me the last 9 months, of course at the beginning with that hyperemesis I wasn't eating at all and then baby
had his way of easing me back into eating gently by wanting me to eat nothing but salads. The other week saw me have a really funny moment with food and by funny I mean I just couldn't stop eating. I would finish my tea but then want to continue eating, it would get to the point where I was sat on the sofa with a picnic suitable for a family of 7. That was just strange but then I guess it was all just another sign that baby was on his way. Either that or along with his daddy, he finds it funny that I have now have 3 chins.
