    Hi

    Just trying to find out who has had the strangest cravings.

    My friend craved chalk when she was pregnant 11 years ago, and would it eat it by the bucket load, (used to get these fat chalk sticks in a plastic bucket).

    i havent really craved anything abnormal in any of my 3 pregnancies.

    I haven't had any cravings but a close friend of mine used to suck on bath sponges? And she knew of someone who used to lick the spout at the petrol pump :? yuck!

    i craved sponges on my son, it was mad.

    I had to have at least 5 to 10 sponges in each room of the house, and i would walk around all day with those round baby sponges in each hand, i would even sleep with them!

    i took them everywehre with me and even in hospital with me while i gave birth, as soon as i had him the craving went away, was very strange!

    still, it was better than food cravings, i craved dime bars on my daughter, was having about 5 or 6 a day :shock:

    No weird food cravings - but again sponge does it for me. But to chew on! It's the texture against my tongue! I could also rub my toothbrush against the side of my tongue for hours!! :lol:

    I have a mad craving for dried crackers!! :?

    God knows why!!

    I like anything with a strong smell, i used to use Tipex a few weeks ago so i could smell it!! Nail polish remover, lemon washing up liquid anything like that- and i must admit i was partial to a bit of sponge smelling :oops: It is the smell of new bath sponges i like, and wet sponges in the bath

    I could never eat one thought!! Lol
    I wonder if they are fattening! Lol

    :D :D :D

    Fizzy fanta or tango in the day and milk at night, but milk gives me heartburn so I have to be careful.

    UMMMM Orange Fanta!!!!

    Brought some yesterday but I can only have about 3 cups a day because of my heartburn :(

    Haven't really had any food cravings. I used to always want chips and gravy during my first trimester. Also went a bit mad on Walkers Crisps for a while but these days I don't really have an appitite to be honest :(
    Might be because my stomach has been pushed up into my throat and my stomach acids are having hourly parties!! :?
