What does it mean when you crave raw meat? I would never eat raw meat usually...I always get my meat cooked "well done".
Could it be an iron deficiency or something? It is driving me crazy! Every time I go to cook hamburger or steak I am so tempted to take a huge mouthful of the meat raw. Today at the grocery store, as I walked by the sausages I was so tempted to open one up and eat it....uggggggggggggggggh.
Yes def an iron deficiency there, you should indulge in plenty of meat but not raw also its wise to ask your mw for an iron test but iam pretty sure its that. I had a low iron around 10 weeks and those were my cravings along with tiredness but that could be confuse with normal pregnancy symptoms I usually just eat chicken and other white meat but now have a steak twice or trice a week.

Its probably you body telling you its needs some iron indeed! Mine does the same normally, hasnt when Im pregnant so far, but Im eating meat nearly every day atm. Normally I dont eat meat much at all, but occasionally when I got shopping I just want to eat the raw meat off the shelves! Thats when I know its time to buy some red meat and eat it then the craving goes away!
I had this earlier on! I have an almost permanent iron deficiency - even when I'm not pregnant I often end up with supplements to manage it - and this time I was after beetroot, rare steaks and raw bacon. I only had the beetroot, I hasten to add!
Apparently brocolli is great for iron levels too xxx
There is this Lebanese raw meat dish called Kibbeh nayeh. I thought it was tomato and was munching away it was so tasty, then it was revealed that it was raw meat!!!! but its so yum that I carried on munching, you should try it!! But not sure about when you are pregnant though. x
